Sunshine State…More Than A Slogan

Sunshine State Created By Clearwater Beach Native

“Sunshine State” is far more than a slogan to Clearwater Beach native and former Oprah Show producer Chelsea McMillan, it’s a state of mind, and now, her own apparel brand, too. McMillan founded Sunshine State to express her deep love of her home state’s beaches, surf, coastal waters and barrier islands. “I always wanted to do something fun and creative that would make me happy and others happy at the same time,” she gushes.
