Fairytale Morning in Monterey Square & Gal Meets Glam Floral Sundress

There’s something magical about Savannah - you don’t have to spend much time before that becomes really clear. The Spanish moss, the centuries-old oak trees, antebellum mansions, cobblestone paths, vibrant gardens, the scent of jasmine on the air. It makes a girl want to dress up a little. :)

This fit-and-flare tea-length sundress by Gal Meets Glam (no secret, one of my favorite lines) is just the perfect outfit for a day exploring Savannah’s squares, attending brunch, or even a wedding. I love how versatile this dress is. I love it so much, in fact, that I wore it for my Savannah Magazine feature, The Business of Getting Dressed.

I’ve paired it here with Michael Kors Nude Heels and a floral Olivia Burton Watch.

You might recognize the Mercer Williams House (above) from the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, based on the murder trials of Savannah resident Jim Williams. If you haven’t read the book or seen the movie - you should definitely check them out! You can also learn more about the fascinating story, and see the Mercer Williams House in person on one of our Genteel & Bard Savannah History Tours!
