What are your can't-miss recommendations for friends visiting from out of town?
I love to grab a coffee (or mimosa) from Collins Quarter in Forsyth Park and walk through the park and then down Bull St. towards River St. through all the squares. It’s such a dreamy, historic walk! Definitely turn down Jones St. for some of the most beautiful downtown homes.
Favorite activities for an ideal day in the sun?
We love a day spent on the boat with a stop by at The Wyld or a day on Tybee Beach with a stop at Sea Wolf!
A touristy attraction that you'd actually suggest?
I am not from Savannah, but my husband grew up here so I made him do the white trolley historic tour and we both loved it! Also a ghost tour!!
Any other Savannah hidden gems you'd be willing to share?
The Jepson museum has such a beautiful collection and is such a serene space. Also most of our activities right now are geared towards our three kids–the Jepson has a great children’s space and our downtown children’s museum is great!
How would you style Sunshine Tienda for a day in Savannah?
I’ve worn my sunshine tienda hats all through this city! For a day spent frolicking downtown, I would pair it with this cute matching set from Chufy, or how fun is this from Farm Rio!
For a day at the beach, I would pair with this coverup.
