You’re a lawyer. Tell us, how did Jessica + Love come about?
I started my blog whilst working as a paralegal at a law firm about 2 years ago… I had way too much time on my hands and didn’t really intend for anyone to ever read it!
Describe your style in 3 words.
Casual, somewhat-minimal, chic.
Where can we find you on a day-off?
Eating an acai bowl with my best friend and then going for a long walk along the River.
You were in Fiji earlier this month and we were drooling over your pics. Work or play?
PLAY! Much needed family holiday!
You’ve experienced phenomenal growth in the past year, what’s your #1 tip for growing your Instagram account?
Be consistent, post regularly, create an aesthetic which works for your lifestyle, personal style and feels natural to you and follow it religiously.
So, VAMFF has just wrapt up … did you attend? If so, what designers were you most excited to see?

RED! I absolutely love all the different shades of Red, and will definitely be wearing it soon!
