It is no secret that the Refined Side girls love Instagram. Yesterday, I was talking to a friend of mine about the different people you “meet” on the site. We had a good laugh about how many Instagrammers have a strange floor fetish, snapping pictures of their inwardly-pointed toes whilst holding a cup of coffee.
The accounts I want to follow on Instagram are people who inspire me. I want to see an exciting, inspiring life filled with happy, pretty moments. Show me the scrumptious lunch you’re having, the spectacular flowers you picked, or the fabulous outing you went on today. I want to see happy moments frozen into little squares of time. Inspire me! Cheer me up! Make me happy!
Don’t show me your feet and your bathroom tiles.
Last year, I curated five of my favorite Instagram accounts – and they are still some of the best! Today I am sharing a few of my latest Instagram loves – lovely luxspiration right on your Instagram app!
Rebecca Plotnik: Rebecca lives in Paris. Enough said.
Pearls & Privilege: I am extra privileged to call this girl my friend, but I absolutely love her Instagram feed filled with pretty, girly things. To quote her lovely profile, “Good manners and taste maketh the woman.”
Emma Tjolle: Emma lives a “quite ordinary” life – or so she says – filled with wildflowers and love. She hails from Bath, one of my favorite cities in the world. Marissa Kraxberger: Marissa is one of those do-everything-with-great-blowout women, and I just cannot get enough of her photos. Look to her for bright colors and cute children – also, there was a duck at one point. Melina: I cannot get enough of her dreamy little pictures! She’s a lovely girl posting lovely things, with a french twist. I think I am going through a french phase! She loves tea, so she’s obviously a keeper.
