Blue Dress in Savannah Georgia

If you’ve spent any time on Genteel & Bard’s Instagram page, you’ll know how I feel about dresses. There’s just something about a dress. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, I’m always on the hunt for a classic day dress that will take me from brunch, to lunch meetings, and maybe even early cocktails.

The Bette day dress by Julia Engle’s Gal Meets Glam Collection is one of my go-to favorites. The streamlines cut, subtle bow details, and tea-length skirt make this cobalt beauty incredibly multi-functional, and effortlessly sophisticated.

Don’t even get me started on the elegant pleating and fabric-covered buttons…

Savannah’s Green-Meldrim House is one of her most beautiful treasures, both architecturally and historically. She played host to General Sherman during his occupation of Savannah, during which one of the most important meetings in United States history took place.

T.C. and I were so excited to dive into the Green-Meldrim’s deeper history while writing our book, Hidden History of Savannah book, available now!
