It’s a total bohemian vibe for the June fashion editorial in Charleston Magazine.  Eclectic prints from swimsuits to resort wear mixed with texture and layered jewelry make those hot summer days extra steamy.  Shot at the Bimini Beach House on Folly, it was the perfect location to feature these gypset styles.

I Will Reflect

093B7315 093B7507 093B7476 093B7377 AndreaSerrano_5.17

I’m so proud to be an ambassador of the “I Will Reflect” campaign, the Melanoma Awareness and Prevention initiative that The Spa at Belmond Charleston Place is hosting.  As an active person who works and plays outdoors, I value the importance of protecting myself from the sun’s harmful rays. I always wear 15 – 70 SPF year round, wear hats and sunglasses when I know I’m going to be in the sun all day, and take shade whenever I can.  I think it’s always important to spread the message to the younger generation and raise awareness.  My boys know that they have to wait for mommy to apply that sunscreen before a day in the sun.

“With this campaign, we aim to educate the Charleston community about the importance of sun safety, skin protection and the significant dangers of melanoma,” says Annette Sandford-Lopez, Director of The Spa at Belmond Charleston Place. The “I Will Reflect” social media campaign will use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as its channels of communication for sharing advice from local physicians, stories from skin cancer survivors, and everyday sun safety tips.

So as you get ready for a day at the beach or by the pool, don’t forget to protect yourself!

As a local living in one of the top tourist destinations in the world you forget all of the obvious places to visit and play.  Instead of letting all of the tourists enjoy the fun activities, we should take advantage of what’s in our own backyard.  The scene for the Dandy Boutique summer look book was at the beautiful pink Palmer Home on the battery.  The historical house that was built in 1849 was the perfect setting for our “staycation” shoot.  A step outside and you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Charleston Harbor as you enjoy a bike ride or stroll through White Point Garden. This summer get out there and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you!
