551 meticulously coordinated photos later, and I surprisingly have yet to grow tired of Instagram. (Psst: You can follow me at @a_wilmer!) Between staged photos and more authentic snapshots, Instagram continues to be my go-to source for visual inspiration. Whereas I can go without checking Twitter or watching a blogger’s Snaps for a day, it’s admittedly harder for me to stop double-tapping. Whether you’re new to the Insta game or are looking to add some variety to your Instagram feed, I’ve compiled a list of six users that are currently on my radar. If you’re new to the blog, be sure to check out my first, second and third installments to see some of my previous faves. Enjoy!
@thecolorfulprep (Danielle Sarkissian: Fashion Lifestyle Blogger / OC California): Think: colorful walls, preppy style (lots of J.Crew!) and a laid-back California aesthetic to match. Summed up in one word, The Colorful Prep’s feed is simply FUN. From that infamous polka dot wall to endless coffee shop vibes, Danielle’s bright + punchy snapshots never fail to disappoint.
@rachelschwartzmann (Rachel Schwartzmann: Founder + CEO and wearing more hats for The Style Line): Can you say #girlboss? Besides being the founder of The Style Line (a creative community built upon storytelling), Rachel also has a minimalist style that slays. Seriously, so good. I’m constantly getting inspiration from her daily outfit snapshots. For a glimpse at Rachel’s favorite NYC spots and daily adventures — and well-edited photos with a hipster aesthetic — be sure to give her a follow.
@kevinwonka (Kevin Wong: Hong Kong & New York. Parsons Architecture Design. Creator of #Neckxercise): Warning: This Instagram feed will fuel your love affair with New York City. I stumbled upon Kevin’s feed a while ago and have been blown away by his insane photography skills and game-changing perspective ever since. For architecture… and city corners… and unparalleled skyline views… it’s all here.
@jcrew (J.Crew): Okay, so this one’s a no-brainer. Between fashion week coverage, Jenna Lyons-esque styling (pattern play! colour!) and no shortage of #shinyponies to go around, J.Crew’s presence on social is always on point. If you love J.Crew as a brand, then it's safe to say that you’ll love their Insta even more.
@miudafrenchie (Miüda: “I was born in Slovakia, now I live in Vienna but my humans are Portuguese. I take selfies all day long. Problem??!): Until I can actually snag a French Bulldog of my own, this account will have to do. Meet Miüda, aka the cutest Frenchie in existence. Adorableness aside, this Frenchie account is incredibly streamlined and aesthetically pleasing with lots of glorious white space. (Even the photos of Miüda napping have artistic value!)
@theviennesegirl (Silia | Vienna. Photography): Of course, no roundup of Instagram users would be complete without at least one Vienna-based account. I’ve followed the Viennese Girl for some time now, and it’s been a delight seeing Silia grow as a photographer and blogger. Not just restricted to Vienna street shots (which are swoon-inducing in their own right), she also shares snapshots of her latest travels and ultra-glam photo shoots.
