This week we interview fashion blogger Tessa-Jay, who has had her eye and her camera lens on SurfStitch for some time now. Blogging since 2008, and catching the eye of many fashion labels and fashionistas, Tessa-Jay’s writing and photography on her blog Circa Now, has made her a SurfStitch favourite. We interview Tessa-Jay about summer style, blogging inspiration and more!

SS: What’s your favourite summer staple – are you a singlet & shorts kind of girl, or do you go for more feminine dresses?

T: An oversized beach towel or the silk Zimmermann floral cap!

SS: What made you decide to start fashion blogging?

T: I started in 2008 as an outlet to post my photos and fashion images, kind of like an online diary. From there it just grew and i was offered with such amazing opportunities!
