I am very sorry for not doing a Free For All Friday post last week but it was just too hectic!
But boy am I making up for it today!! Remember how I told you you could find me on the Farmers Wife Amy's sidebar this month?? Now we are bringing you a CASH giveaway and we are also giving away a sign!! Check the bottom of the post for the details to enter!
Today I will also be telling you about my spur of the moment day trip to Charleston with my roommate! Along with lots of pictures and of course they feature my new Cranberry booties from Shopbop!!
Charleston is about an hour and a half away from Savannah so armed with my nook app on my iPod and bottles of water and bags of kettle chips we hit the road! Charleston was gorgeous! I could tell that as soon as we parked on King's street. It has a very similar feeling to Savannah on a larger slightly less historic scale but there were definitely similarities. We began our day at Kudu coffee and craft beer, what better combination really? Except that you can't walk around with your drinks like you can in Savannah which is kind of a bummer after living here for so long!
We didn't really have any set plans for the day, we pretty much just wanted to walk around and stop into whatever shops and stores caught our eye.
Of course not really knowing where we were going we walked the wrong way down King's street and ended up at the end about three or four blocks down and we were like well that can't be right. So back we went and we probably walked well over a mile yesterday. I was wearing my new boots from Shopbop and let me tell you they were SO comfortable! All of my boots are comfortable but you know when you get a new pair and you haven't had a chance to test them out or break them in you never can be sure how comfy they will be. But at the end of the day my feet were fine and were hardly sore at all and I didn't even have any blisters!
Our first stop was Goorin Bro's Hat shop, I had heard of this hat shop while in Philadelphia when I asked someone where they got their hats and it sort of slipped my mind until I saw the store front on King's St. Of course at that point we had to stop in and try on the hats! I fell in love. Students get a 15% discount and I was sorely tempted to purchase a burgundy hat but alas I am not in a financial state that will let me invest in such a high quality hat. BUT they will be having a sale at the beginning of November and they just opened a shop in Savannah so I know where I will be once that sale starts! I definitely recommend you check them out their hats are fabulous.
