Tell us about your successful Instagram account, Johanna Olsson, and what inspired you to start it?
I have been blogging for about 10 years so it was a natural progression to start an Instagram page centered around fashion. I like mixing lifestyle and in-the-moment shots to capture my everyday style and outfits so that my followers can get a sense of what I’m doing and wearing.

Shoes are my favorite!

Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Fendi and Dior. Season after season I love what they do.
