As far as social media goes, I’d say that I’m generally a pretty big fan. Living in a digital world, it’s hard not to gravitate toward at least one (or five) social media feeds.
Pinterest is chock-full of inspiration...and, as I’m sure many of you know, it happens to also be super addictive. I like to think of Tumblr as a more streamlined version of Pinterest reserved for only the crème de la crème. Twitter is perfect for my random thoughts of the day (140 characters or less!). As for Facebook...yeah, not my cup of tea. I love the idea behind Vine, I’m just not super video-savvy. If you’re not using it yet, then download Steller...like right now. It’s a storytelling app that is so inspirational, you really just have to check it out.
With all that being said, there’s no question that Instagram is my absolute favorite social media platform to use. I love photography and capturing the “perfect” shot. Picking (who am I kidding, sometimes obsessing over) just the right filter and coming up with the most thoughtful or clever description that I can dream up is all part of the IG process.
Since I’m constantly stumbling across new Instagram users, I decided to just spotlight six that I can’t get enough of right now. These are the users who post seriously amazing photos that inspire me on a daily basis. Without further ado, here they are:
@anyeske (Alex Yeske, “graphic designer at Madewell + blogger”)- I aspire for Alex’s attention to detail and clean/simple/minimalist aesthetic. Her entire feed is so. good.
@amy_stone (Amy Stone, “social media @gap. west village, nyc.”)- Proof that colour inspires and enlightens – shots like this one are the epitome of cool. One thing that I really appreciate about Amy’s feed is that she makes every photo count. Oh, and did I mention that she has a knack for snapping some of NYC’s snazziest and most stylish doors?!
@equipment_fr (Equipment, “The Equipment woman is strong, chic, elegant, adventurous, sexy and above all classic.”)- Whether it be a rack of Equipment’s lustworthy color coordinated blouses (I’ll take one in every color, please!), a glimpse of their current moodboard or regrams from fashion bloggers sporting Equipment in their latest #ootd, everything featured in Equipment’s feed is simply exquisite, to say the least.
@garancedore (Garance Doré)- The personal Instagram account of fashion photographer, illustrator and writer, Garance Doré, is as impeccable as they come. For your sartorial pleasure, and for a peek into Garance’s design-filled world, I suggest giving her a follow.
@VoiceofVienna (“Hobby photographer, traveller, nature lover”)- 365 days a year, you can bet that I’m in a Vienna state of mind. With Voice of Vienna, each photo brings back a little bit of Vienna to my daily life.
@katespadeny (kate spade new york, “quick and curious and playful and strong.”)- This one probably comes as no surprise, but to be fair, every photo really is just as witty + charming as the brand itself. I wouldn’t expect anything less from ksny...
Which Instagram users’ photos do you find yourself tapping “like” one too many times?
