A couple of weeks ago my good friend Liz Martin aka The Charleston Weekender put together a fun summer shoot at Mixson Bath & Racquet Club. I just love Liz’s approach to life – Everyday should be the weekend. The interior decorator, online shopkeeper, lifestyle blogger, and prop stylist really knows how to host a party and a photo shoot, just check out her blog post.
The hostess with the mostest The Charleston Weekender gathered up some local bloggers for an afternoon of bocce, croquet, and of course rose from One Hope Charleston. It was fun and easy for all of us to coordinate accessories from Candy Shop Vintage, Simply J Boutique, and Nectar sunglasses. My fellow Charleston bloggers from left to right – The Charleston Weekender, Paper Meets Pearl, ThriftyLittleBecca, and XoXoIJoelle

Wondering about the sunglasses I’ve been wearing a lot on my blog lately? They’re Blue Planet Eyewear and the socially responsible company makes eco-conscious frames that also gives back to those in need. Their stylish frames are made with bamboo and wood giving the modern design an organic edge. Being philanthropic is a huge element in the Blue Planet Eyewear mission by working with global partners such as SEE International, Feed the Children, Best Day Foundation, and Direct Relief. Through the sales of their sunglasses they have donated over 150,000 pairs of sunglasses and eyeglasses to people in need around the world. If your a Charleston local, you can shop the entire collection of readers and sunglasses at Henry & Eva. I love this Mt. Pleasant boutique because it’s a one stop shop for men’s and women’s accessories and gifty items. The best part is that the average price of their sunglasses are only $45, not bad for looking good while doing your part to give back.
