Island Living: boat,beach & BBQ's
Author: Special to CH2
Fashion Tip: Summer is all about staying cool and looking good while you do. A flowy dress, straw hat, loose shorts, and open toe shoes are all great options for any occasion. The most important summer fashion accessory though is sunscreen. Lobster skin & strap marks ruin even your best look; so, if you have an event coming up, make sure you sunbathe responsibly.

Meet the Stylist, Kim Molloy
I am a 20 year island resident with three kids and a husband – need I say more?
As a child, I remember my father bringing my mom beautiful clothes from all over the world from his travels. This began my interest in fashion, and I have been hooked ever since. While never studying fashion professionally, it has been a hobby/interest for a lifetime. After helping friends over the years with their wardrobes, a little stroke of luck came my way to do this professionally (thanks Mark Staff & CH2), and now I have the complete privilege of sharing my style with you.
