I love instagram: out of all the social media networks, this one is the most fun for me. (Related: I don’t spend much time on it, and I don’t feel much obligation to post, comment, or share anything.)
Instagram gets a bad rap sometimes, and I get that. Some people are inclined to social comparison, others aren’t. If instagram makes you feel bad, stay off it.
I think one of the reasons I enjoy instagram so much (and don’t battle instagram envy) is that I’m careful who I follow: my feed is heavy on books and nature (and food, because, well, it’s instagram) and light on the fashion bloggers.
Today I’m sharing a handful of my favorite instagram accounts to follow. (You can follow me @annebogel.)
@5ftinf. I love this one (pronounced “five foot inf”) for its sheer gorgeousness. Philippa Stanton is a British artist, and her account features daily pictures on her workshop table. Flowers and tea are usually involved, and sometimes vintage Penguin classics, and the colors and light are amazing.
@alilittle28. Alison’s account is so serene and lovely. We met at a conference a few years back (my eternal gratitude to twitter, which connected us as roomies) and I love keeping up with her on instagram. Her feed is full of her home life, her kids, her beautiful North Carolina setting, and lots of tea.
@bookmusings. Booklovers, this one’s for you: lots of books, in a fresh way, captured by a former school librarian. This feed is only a month old but the first shot was of Persuasion and every photo since has been consistently delightful.
@lucyjanetotes. Kim runs the handmade shop Lucy Jane Totes and her feed is full of swoon-worthy bags, behind the scenes studio shots, and family life. All her bags (totes, clutches, pencil pouches) have a cheerful, fun look, which give her photos a happy vibe.
