Hi Jessica! Tell us a little about yourself!
I was born and raised in NYC with a passion for food and fashion. My instagram @PeachyTravels is a creative outlet to inspire and share my adventures with others around the world!
What spoke to you about the Chanho Jang Off Pattern Skirt you chose to wear?
I was immediately drawn to how classic yet fashion forward and work appropriate Chanho’s designs were. The zipper on the garments added an extra touch to the look that made it pop. Since I spend a majority of my day in the office, I tend to lean towards looks that are more versatile in the sense that I can wear it to work yet still style it differently during my nights out.
What do you do?
During my usual 9 to 5, I’m an Environmental Health and Safety Advisor at a hospital, but outside of that I run my Instagram account @PeachyTravels focused on food and lifestyle. It originally started as a creative outlet to share my passions and experiences with my followers to inspire and encourage them to seek out new adventures and most importantly discover amazing food that’s out there.
When did you develop a love of fashion?
I’ve always had a love for fashion, and it’s very obvious if you walk into my closet because I’m constantly buying new clothes and seeking new styles. Fashion’s a way for me to express myself.
In one word, how would you describe your style?
How do you incorporate your own personal style with what you do?
I definitely wear a lot of black and white at the office, because it’s so easy to match plus you can never go wrong with that combo. It’s so chic and classy! Along with every outfit I always incorporate my watch to accessorize as well as a necklace. However, when I’m away from work I opt for more trendy and colorful styles.
Describe your morning routine. At 9 am each day, you are….
At the office checking emails while eating breakfast and drinking my hot cup of tea.
Describe your evenings…
My evenings are spent attending events, food tastings at restaurants, photo shoots to editing my content for Instagram.
Your biggest fashion faux pas, or a regrettable purchase / style phase:
I wouldn’t say I had any regrets even though I may not choose to wear what I did in the past, because I feel like whatever fashion sense I had then was what helped inspire and shape my style today.
