6 Instas to Follow for Summer Inspo

By Ashton Pike | June 8, 2018 | Articles

One glance at the Cali-cool aesthetic of @trippingwithmybff, run by inseparable Atlanta-based besties Kristina and Nicholle, and you’ll be hit with the travel bug—hard. From Las Vegas to Los Angeles to Florida’s coast, these on-the-go babes scream “summer” with snaps of bikinis, ice cream cones, pineapples and bike rides beneath the palm trees.

For those who are stingy with their follows, let the “17.7K” at the top of @saralongsworth’s Insta assure you you’re doing the right thing, especially if you’d like to see more fruity sips and patio bites on your next scroll—or if you want the inside scoop on where to find ATL’s most ‘grammable street art to show off on your own story.

Businesses are picking up what bloggers are putting down in terms of the importance of a cohesive colorway. Take Memorial Drive’s new @muchachoatl, whose Insta will have you craving its spiked agua frescas and airy, retro environs that act as an instant mood booster (the flavorful bowls and tasty tacos also do the trick).

When it comes to summer-style inspo, turn to blond beauty and graphic designer
 @morgangoldemery, whose easy-breezy wardrobe of Anthropologie, Madewell and Free People—paired with a pretty peach-hued filter—will have you pausing your current Netflix binge to upgrade your outfit game for the season.

If you’re skimming the feed of @elliotliss—a star ATL-based photographer and the man behind the portraits in this issue’s feature—you’ll find two things for certain: eclectic vibes in the form of bright backdrops and funky fashion, plus a few familiar faces, including Stranger Things’ Joe Keery and Dacre Montgomery. 

After scrolling through photographer and blogger @chelseapatricia’s fierce feed flaunting lots of skin, you’ll be ready to #slay the summer away in your sexiest ensembles. Not to mention, the free-spirited fashionista’s workout posts are sure to give you all the motivation you need to start on those squats.
