Each month, Victoria and Meg over at The B Bar choose a question to answer – something to get the creative juices flowing, if you will, and then participants share their answers in a link round up on their respective sites. I totally dropped the ball last time around, but I’m thrilled to be joining in today where we’re dishing on everyone’s favorite social media platform, Instagram!
WE WERE ASKED: WHO ARE THREE OF YOUR FAVORITE PEOPLE TO FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM AND WHY?
My first thoughts centered around the fact that I had to narrow it down to just three for this particular exercise. This resulted in me wading through close to 550 worthy contestants. Talk about pressure!
I appreciate feeds that have a healthy mix of photos (real life, behind the scenes, photos from their blog/biz..etc.) and a decent amount of color. It’s not that I dislike the feeds that are picture perfect in every sense – you know, the ones that have crisp white images for days, but more so in the fact that it isn’t my reality.
In the end, the gals below stole my photo-loving heart.
Mandy is the woman behind the popular blog and shop, Waiting on Martha. She puts off a confident, yet laid-back vibe in her photos that range from style, to entertaining, to travels and everything in between. She also clearly indicates that her Instagram feed is her “highlight reel,” a friendly reminder that her life isn’t perfect and these are the best of the best. You can find more delicious photos like the ones below here: @waitingonmartha.
Megan is the creator of Sparkles and Sprinkles, a lifestyle blog based out of Chicago. She just celebrated her first year of blogging and if you ask me, she’s way ahead of the game (especially when it comes to her Instagame). Just looking at it provides an instant mood-boost and her love for stripes is definitely something I can get behind! You can follow along with her here: @meganpatty_.
Chanté is an independent textile and fashion designer here in Kansas City. I’m especially fond of the stunning leather bodice + silk skirt number from her Spring/Summer 2014 collection – but all of her work could be described as such. I’ve been enthralled with her most recent snaps documenting her trip to Panama and I can’t wait to see what she does and where she goes next. Go on and follow her here: @chantegossett.
There you have it, a decent excuse to get lost in the wondrous world of Instagram – of course, I’m on there as well @26andNotCounting.
