My Weekend Uniform: Navy and Gold Fixation

It's not the easiest thing to look halfway decent in this Charleston heat.  My main summer looks therefore involve staying as cool as possible while still attempting to look somewhat put together.  Navy and gold have been my go-to accessories to add to just about any breezy dress in my closet.  Here are my current favorites to add to your weekend wear, with photos by Clifford Pate.

Wrist Wear

Sophie & Freda makes some of the most awesome watches I have ever seen. They are simple but chic and I wear one of their Nantucket watches pretty much all the time.  I got super lucky and scored one on Rue La La for a steal, and you can now get 50% off through July 17 with code WEEKENDER50 here!  I love pairing a bracelet with my watch, and these Be The Change Boutique bracelets are so lovely and delicate. They would obviously make a great gift, but there is nothing wrong with treating yourself to this $38 bracelet which comes with a free compliment.  Top it off with some white nails (my favorite is Vinyluxe Cream Puff), and BOOM: summer look complete.

Stay Golden

Maybe my current Golden Girls obsession is to blame, but regardless I'm all about gold accessories right now. Croghan's gold bug earrings and my champagne bottle necklace from Candy Shop Vintage are my favorite pieces to pair with a dress or even a comfy tee.

Please Print

Pair your navy & gold with a fun printed dress and you have the perfect look for any weekend situation!  The dresses below are all from Escapada, and I found one of their maxis on sale here.  I love that mine could be worn as a tunic with white jeans when it cools off, and I paired it with my favorite Ralph Lauren wedges I found at DSW.  Their height is much lower than a regular wedge so they are easy to wear all weekend long.  If you prefer glasses over contacts like me, check out my Warby Parker Jennings glasses. You might as well try on a few pairs; it's free as part of their in-home try on program.

I am not getting monetary compensation for any of the products I have recommended in this post, but I have included a couple affiliate links (that I may eventually get paid from if someone besides my mom reads this).

A Weekend in Charleston: The Cabin & The Carts!

.... golf carts and ice cream carts, that is.  I'd say both are pretty magical parts of Charleston living in the summertime!  Some lovely ladies I know- Kelly of Paper Meets Pearl & Escapada's designer, Lauren Miller- hopped on a golf cart with me to check out a gorgeous part of Charleston I bet you may not have been to unless you live above the Crosstown.  Just south of Hampton Park is one of my favorite little spots to walk my dog or sit on a park bench, Allan Park.  We took in the scenery there and also chowed down on some awesome ice cream from Scoops Wheely Good Ice Cream.  Also in that area (known as Hampton Park Terrace) is one of my new favorite spots, Harold's Cabin.  Their bar manager, Drew, is a neighborhood pal who took us for a golf cart spin and let us in Harold's for some java and a peek at their cozy upstairs.  Lauren's talented fiance, Clifford Pate, was there to snap some pix of the whole thing. Check him out on Instagram because his photos are great, and also because you never know when he might do something wild like propose on the runway of Charleston fashion week!

The Wheely Good Ice Cream cart sucked me right in with their cute striped umbrella, and I'll definitely visit them again for their tasty ice cream sandwiches and scoops.  You can also rent the Scoops cart out for events. How fun would that be for a kid's (or big kid's) birthday or rehearsal dinner!?

At "the Cabin", I can't get enough of the Cabin Cold Brew coffee or the Salty Raccoon tequila cocktail!  I haven't made my way through much of the menu yet, but what I have had is just delish.  Plus, it's worth a visit for the ambiance and decor alone.  

Well that was fun!  Follow me on Instagram to see more details on our fun Escapada clothing, accessories from Be The Change Boutique, and general golf cart shenanigans.  Also be sure to visit Harold's Cabin, open Weds-Sunday.  Tell them Liz Martin sent you for a free....smile. Or maybe a hug. You never know.  You can also try some Scoops Ice Cream on July 17 at the grand opening for Ghost Monkey Brewery on Long Point Road in Mount Pleasant.  It just happens to be NATIONAL ICE CREAM DAY! Cheers to that!
