Living Vicariously: Five Instagram Accounts to Follow

5 Instagram Accounts to Follow // via South by Northwest

Jules pointed out in conversation the other day that I’m really into Instagram, and she’s right – I confess, I’m a hopeless addict. But it’s not that I post pictures with obsessive frequency; I’m just a sucker for beautiful things, and Instagram delivers, if you know where to look! With a quick tap of my phone screen, I can be backstage at New York Fashion Week, cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway, sipping espresso in the Piazza Navona, or strolling beneath cherry blossoms in Tokyo. I love that it’s all so accessible! Allow yourself to be whisked away with a few of my favorites…


5 Instagram Accounts to Follow: @annstreetstudio

Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg of @annstreetstudio are professional photographers, so of course their Instagram account is a total gem. The duo is well-traveled and glamorous, and Jamie’s old-school elegance is everything I aspire to (though I feel compelled to tell you that I am wearing penguin print PJ bottoms as I write this, so it may be a lost cause).

Ana Kamin, the girl behind @fluxi, perfectly captures the colorful, offbeat charm of San Francisco in her photos. I can practically feel the cool Pacific breeze on my face as I scroll through her feed.

I will never stop loving Rome, and @parisianinrome gives me my daily fix. Each photo is paired with a perfect literary quote: sometimes contemplative, sometimes cheeky, but always timeless.

You may already be familiar with Katie Armour from her blog the Neo-Traditionalist (or from the now defunct Matchbook Magazine, which I adored), but her Instagram is just as lovely as her other projects. Katie recently moved to Chicago, and I love seeing her adventures in a city so near and dear to my heart! Bonus: her adorable pug Alfred makes frequent cameos.

Okay, so this one is no surprise. With 1.2 million followers, Nicole Warne is practically an Instagram icon (to say nothing of her beautiful blog). In her words, @garypeppergirl offers a glimpse into “a realm of vivid color and endless possibilities.” I really couldn’t put it any better myself!

Which Instagram accounts do you love? Are you as obsessed as I am?
