Savannah Brunch-ready in The Perfect power-woman Day Dress

Brenna Lauren in Gal Meets Glam Dress in Savannah, Georgia

This smart, sophisticated piece is literally bringing all the fabulous fall vibes for me right now.

I think there’s definitely something about a dress with a little extra fabric in the skirt - Julia Engle over at Gal Meets Glam has a really amazing eye for that particular detail. The little extra fabric goes a long way toward bringing that classic feminine flare. I just love this cut so much.

The understated collar and simple belt pull this dress together for a distinctly tailored, down-to-business kind of look.

I paired this with my fave Michael Kors nude heels (obsessed), RayBan Sunnies, and my go-to clutch by local artisan bag designer, Satchel.

The heart line through Savannah’s Historic District is Bull Street. When walking southward from the Savannah River all the way to Forsyth Park, Bull Street boasts square after curated square, each of them crowned with historic monuments just begging for an Instagram filter.

And the little lanes that run east to west off of Bull Street lead you down some of the country’s most picturesque residential and boutique districts you could hope to find this side of the Atlantic.

T.C. and I were joking that living in Historic Savannah is pretty much like living in a Hallmark Movie. The beauty and history are breathtaking and humbling. We feel so blessed to live here, y’all.
