Savannah Bound!

I'M MOVING TO SAVANNAH!

Pop the champagne and cue the confetti, because beginning in the fall I will be attending The Savannah College of Art & Design for graduate school and will be pursuing a masters of art in Fashion and Luxury Management! I couldn't be more excited for this new phase starting in September!


It's funny how plans change and your future doesn't always turn out how you would expect. Looking back to my freshman and sophomore year I was dead set on graduating and catching a flight straight up to New York City and never looking back. I never even considered graduate school until my junior year when I started to seriously think about after graduation plans. 

I've always thought about getting my masters, but I figured I'd put it off until a few years after graduation and after obtaining some real world experience. But after doing four internships in related fields but different responsibilities I feel confident about what I want to do long term. I'm excited to gain more knowledge about the fashion industry and hopefully pair it with my communications major down the road.

My first time visiting Savannah last summer I fell in love with the quaint city. I love the south and feel most like myself when the people are friendly and the tea is sweet. Savannah felt like a smaller Charleston (and everyone knows my love for Charleston). 

Everyone is so friendly and I love how walkable the city is. My mom and I went down last week right before Easter to tour some apartments and it made me even more excited! I'm planning on living right downtown within walking distance of where my classes will be. I think I'll be asking for a bike for graduation!


I can't wait to be down there full time and get the chance to explore my new city. My program is only about a year so I want to take advantage of all the time I have there. I'm excited to decorate an apartment and have a place to call my own! I'll be sure to share lots of new apartment posts!


If anyone has any Savannah recommendations bring them on! I don't know much about the city and I'm ready to get to know it!

Remember,

xoxo

  7. Congrats Shannon! I grew up in Savannah and live here now, so I'm happy to provide lots of recommendations/tell you more about the city if you're interested!
    For starters some of my favorite places to eat in no particular order: The Vault, Beetnix, Kayak Kafe, Tequila Town, Zunzi's, Collins Quarter, Foxy Loxy and the Coffee Fox (sister stores), Back in the Day, Starland Cafe, Pacci, Screaming Mimi's, Vinnie's, Sandfly BBQ, Wyld, Atlantic, Fire, and Green Truck.
    Tons of shopping on Broughton but also cute boutiques a little further south near Liberty and Whitaker like Red Clover, One Fish, Two Fish, Brass Belle, Mamie Ruth, and the scad store. Basically if you see a shop while walking around downtown, pop in because 99% of the boutiques have cute stuff.

  8. Oh my goodness, I'm all about Savannah! My husband and I went on our honeymoon there two years ago and it's one of my all-time favorite cities. Make sure you eat lots of pralines from the Savannah Candy Co (it looks really touristy, but the pralines are addictive) and eat at the Olde Pink House at least once-it's divine :)
