"HERE'S WHAT I WORE" Trying to remain somewhat comfortable after consuming tons of Southern comfort food while in Savannah, I wore my "fat jeans" with a yellow Ralph Lauren oxford button down and an aqua Ralph Lauren crewneck, and aqua Lilly ballet flats.
Lord have mercy, I had shrimp and grits along with a Caesar salad. If you are ever in Savannah...go to B. Matthews and order the shrimp and grits!
B. Matthews bistro, located at 325 East Bay Street, in the historic district of Savannah, serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. I must confess that I really wanted to try their Black-Eyed Pea Cake Sandwich...next time!
We decided to visit a spot for dessert that IS on the top 10 list of Savannah eateries--Back in the Day Bakery. While cupcakes are their big draw, Back in the Day also serves a wide variety of sandwiches.
Back in the Day Bakery is a favorite of Paula Deen and after seeing several tweets about the the place from Paula's assistant Brandon Branch, I just knew I had to try it! Of course, they have a cookbook available!
Back in the Day, located at 2403 Bull Street, serves breakfast and lunch. It's decorated like an old-fashioned bakery from the 50's with a retail section full of vintage goodies. The waitresses wear cute vintage aprons and the bakery is decorated in pastel tones.
Pretty antique chandeliers illuminate the bakery.
My cupcake was purse bliss...the cupcake was very moist and the icing was...just perfect!
We also stopped in to shop at Seaside Sisters. I've shopped at this cute shop on Tybee Island before and love it. I found some cute coastal serveware pieces.
Right around the corner from Back in the Day Bakery at 2819 Bull Street is the fabulous vintage furniture shop--Two Women and a Warehouse. This shop is full of painted furniture and lively and colorful home furnishings. I want to go back!!!!
So now I'm visiting with my Mama. I feel so blessed that I'm able to spend time with Mama. Yesterday, we were having lunch at The Cracker Barrel and three sweet ladies stopped at our table to tell Mama how beautiful she looked. They were so kind and will never know how special they made my Mama feel. God bless them! Their kind act reminded me of how much I miss the sweetness of Southern women and how they respect their elders!
