Back in the good old days of Instagram, our feeds were linear and our friends were always near. Today, well -- things are a bit different thanks to that darn algorithm that we're all trying to figure out how to beat, or at least get along with. So in the spirit of community, I wanted to share five Instagram accounts that I always find myself feeling inspired by!
"Honest glimpses into our nomadic life intended to spark solidarity & inspiration no matter where you’ve landed in yours." Hailey is a Phoenix native turned New Yorker who is currently living a nomadic lifestyle with her husband and young son. She shares her daily musings on life, motherhood, travel and so much more on her Instagram and blog. I admire Hailey's honest look into her daily life and love seeing their travel photos from their monthly destinations (they're currently in Montreal, Quebec). Oh, and if you're into podcasts -- Hailey was recently on Munchin' With Moguls! Would definitely suggest giving her episode a listen to!
Steffy and I go way back together to the the early years of style blogging! She's one of the most kind and friendly gals in the blogosphere who not only has such a rad style, but also a super positive perspective on life. Today, she is sweetest mum to her darling baby boy, Hudson, and shares her laid-back style, along with peeks into her home, travel, family and daily life on her Instagram and blog! Oh, and Steffy loves a good shade of orange, a common theme in her photos + style and home decor -- something that I can totally relate to, especially with the fall season quickly approaching! ;)
"For The Adventurous At Heart." Dawn is an Oregon based photographer and dear friend who has a passion for travel, epic scenery and photographing the love of the most darling couples. Scott and I first met Dawn while we were in Oregon for our 3rd wedding anniversary earlier this year. She took the sweetest photos of us in an icy field and braved snowy roads to get us to the perfect spot. I love, love following along on all of Dawn's adventures via her Instagram, and if you're ever in need of an engagement, wedding, elopement, anniversary, etc. photographer -- she's your gal!
Koko, aka Jane, is one of the friendliest gals you'll ever meet! Jane and I first met while on a press trip to Colorado together last summer and instantly bonded over good food, beautiful scenery and wanting to get the perfect shot! Jane is a true foodie at heart and has recommendations for just about any type of food or restaurant you're looking for -- especially in Austin! She's actually the Restaurant Expert for Visit Austin and shares her daily meals, recipes, peeks into her home and more on her Instagram and blog!
"Take hold of that which is truly life." Bethany's laid-back style, darling kids and beautiful home make her an instant follow, but truth be told -- she has a beautiful heart and an amazing story that I love getting a peek into each day. She and her family are also gearing up for their next big adventure -- moving to Mexico from Canada to partake in Mission work, which Bethany recently share more about on her blog!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! This is by no means my complete list, which I swear is pages and pages long. I truly love the Instagram community and all of the amazing ladies I've been able to connect with through the photo-based app, even if I don't agree with how their timeline is set up. If you have any rad gals, guys or companies that I should be following -- please let me know! Happy Monday, friends!
