It’s been a minute since I shared a new edition of Instagrammers I Know and Like — it’s high time, don’t you think? Here are a few accounts I always make the effort to look in on, Instagram algorithm be damned.
@windychien – Meet Windy, a San Francisco-based artist and product designer, who’s making some incredible large scale artworks with rope. I was initially drawn to her account because she’s doing this cool project in which she makes a different knot everyday in 2016. But don’t be surprised when this genius serving spoon she designed shows up in my holiday gift guide.
@wildbayarea – I think of this account as a love letter to the Bay Area. Insanely gorgeous photographs taken in and around San Francisco are featured; I especially like the fact that the account admin showcases lots of different photographers. So, in addition to supporting multiple artists, the photographic styles vary a lot, giving you different perspectives of landscapes and cityscapes. Follow this one if you are a local, or happen to love landscape photography!
@phoebesoup – I started following Phoebe a while ago, and she continues to blow me away with her aesthetic and dedication to the perfect flatlay. I love the ultra-modern, minimalistic vibe many of her images have (so my jam!), but take a closer look at images like this and this, and you can’t help but be impressed with her styling skills. Flatlays like this take a lot of time and attention to detail, and even though I personally would go nuts trying to capture shots like this, I’m always inspired by ‘grammers who can and do!
@kateogata – Come for the adorable, accessible outfits, stay for the perfectly written captions (oh, and her cute-as-pie pup, Juicy James Franco). If you’re not following my girl Kate yet, do yourself a favor! With SO many fashion bloggers on Insta, I find Kate’s account to be a perfect mix of real life, awesome photography, and daily outfit inspiration. It doesn’t hurt that she’s a blast to hang with in person (and she referred me to Christy, a.k.a. the best hair stylist I’ve ever had!).
Those are just a few accounts I know and like — check out other recommendations here. Are there any Instagrammers you’re obsessing over? Share them with me below in the comments, so I can follow along too!
