Our 20 Favorite Instagram Accounts To Follow | via www.glitterguide.com

We can easily admit that we’re addicted to Instagram—maybe even more than we were back in 2011, when we posted about our 10 favorite brands and individuals to follow! With the brand’s massive growth since—and our continuous quest for creative accounts—we decided it was time to share an updated list of talented users. Here are 20 of our favorites: photographers who grace our feed each day and keep us feeling endlessly inspired!

1 of 20
  • @denisebovee

    Denise’s Instagram is one of our absolute favorites! Denise is a photographer, and captures her life (usually, incredibly cool photos of her two adorable daughters) with just her iPhone! It’s a total inspiration.

  • @coachblkrwomen

    Our friend Eliot made our list last time, and she’s made it again with her impeccable accessories, food shots that make us drool, and dreamy pics of her beloved West Village, NYC.

  • @alice_gao

    Alice Gao is one of Instagram’s most popular users and it’s very easy to see why. Her iPhone-only photos are clean, stylized, and beautiful.

  • @caitlinflemming

    Caitlin is a San Francisco-based interior designer and blogger, so her Instagram documents her projects, favorite local spots, and more. Her style is so simple and stunning!

  • @designlovefest

    Bri’s Instagram is much like her personality: colorful, creative, and fun! It’s such a joy to see all of her adventures.

  • @bonnietsang

    Bonnie is a Los Angeles photographer who snaps gorgeous shots of her daughter, her favorite L.A. spots, and lots of delicious foods. (We tend to get very hungry after seeing her yummy bites!)


  • @cheetahisnb 

    Our friend Alicia (and former Glitter Guide editor) has a great sense of style, and documents her daily outfits and accessories. She also is a SF girl living in NYC, and we love seeing her new escapades.

  • @katiearmour

    Katie is the Editorial Director of Matchbook Magazine, and—like Alicia—she recently moved from San Francisco to NYC. Her photos always inspire us to get outside and explore.


  • @sittinginatree

    Tori Hendrix is a mastermind stylist and event planner. Her style is so dreamy and ethereal. We love seeing what she’s up to (plus admiring how darling her daughter Lucca is!).

  • @chandeliercreative

    Chandelier Creative is a creative agency with lots of pizzaz and style. We just discovered the company on Instagram and enjoy following along as they work on new projects. Plus, they seem to share our affinity for all things sparkly!

  • @Sproutedkitchen

    Sara Forte’s blog and book, Sprouted Kitchen, is a constant inspiration for us. She creates the perfect mix of healthy and indulgent recipes that always have us eager to experiment in the kitchen.

  • @eatsleepwear

    Fashion blogger Kim’s Instagram is chock-full of exciting NYC & Brooklyn adventures. Not to mention, she kind of rocks the best #selfie out there.

  • @thedoorsofnewyork

    Ashlina of The Decorista started an Instagram specifically devoted to capturing all the beautiful and interesting doors in the city. We never thought that doors could be so captivating!


  • @pennyweight

    We had the pleasure of meeting Elise at New York Fashion Week and we were immediately drawn to her. She’s beautiful, sweet, and so creative. Her Instagram is a true reflection of her style.

  • @sarahshermansamuel

    Sarah is a graphic designer, creative director, and the founder of Smitten Studio. She’s freaking fabulous. Her Instagram is so carefully curated—a true work of art!

  • @amanda100lc

    Amanda is a graphic designer and one of the founders of 100 Layer Cake. We loved watching her plan her fantastic wedding last year, and we look forward to her sparkly style on our feed. She’s definitely a kindred spirit.


  • @jaime_king

    We’ve been massive fans of Jaime King for years. She seems like the cool girl who’s actually very sweet and goofy—and we dig that! Despite her celebrity, her Instagram feels authentic.

  • @delbarrmoradi 

    Delbarr Moradi is a Bay Area graphic designer and photographer whose pictures are so dreamy and thought-provoking. We’re beyond lucky to get to work with her!

  • @agirlastyle

    Briony is a writer and blogger (she’s also a Glitter Guide contributor!) living in London. Her Instagram is a girlie-girl’s dream! It’s like looking at a fairy tale.

  • @katespadeny

    Kate Spade’s Instagram is a pure delight. The photos are so fun and lighthearted. We’re always eager to see what they’ll snap next!
