#CrushAlert: My Instagram Favorites


Oh Instagram. How do I love (and sometimes loathe) thee. Let me count the ways. You’re the first thing my eyes see in the morning and the last thing I see before I say goodnight. Must. Refresh. Can’t. Get. Enough. Hi, I’m Jenn, and I’m an Instagram addict. (If we share that in common let’s be friends!)

In my late night searching (and sometimes stalking – let’s be honest here), I’ve come across accounts that provide endless inspiration, beauty and laughs. As part of Meg and Victoria’s second blogger link-up, they asked us:

Who Are Your Three Favorite Instagrammers & Why?

It was a difficult choice. While some days I might scroll through my feed, other days I go straight to the source depending on my mood. But the three accounts I check most often, pretty much all day everyday, are Paris in Four Months, Pair With Us and By Malene Birger.


Paris in Four Months {For Dreamy Inspiration + All Thing Paris}
Carin Olsson’s photography takes my breath away. Originally from Sweden, she only planned to visit Paris for four months. After falling in love with the city (haven’t we all), she made the move permanent. Her photos depict exactly how I saw the city for the first time last fall when standing on the top of the Arc de Triomphe. She captures exactly what I feel when I think of Paris. Dreamy. Light. Airy. Beautiful. When I need a good dose of inspiration or when I can’t get the city of lights off my mind, I scroll through her feed and immediately feel immense joy. #takemebacktoparis


Pair With Us {For All Things Wine With a Hilarious Twist}
Heather and Danielle, the two ladies behind Pair With Us, keep me smiling and craving wine at all times. Seriously – All. Day. Long. I’m a huge supporter of “It’s just another Malbec Monday”, “Rise and Wine” and “You Can’t Drink (Wine) With Us”. They share funny quotes about wine, wine tips and photos of dogs enjoying a glass or two of Merlot (the dogs aren’t really drinking – it’s just supposed to be funny). You can even hashtag yourself #wineooftheweek to be featured. (Yep, I’m a wino!) If you love wine, you must follow. #thequeensofwine


By Malene Birger {My Dream Closet}
I stumbled across By Malene Birger after seeing a beautiful, structured, grey trench coat in my feed. At that moment, I fell in love and had to have more. Her designs are classic and timeless with a modern twist. Think your closet basics but better. Much, much better. Tailored pants. Cozy knits. Silks. And for the modern twist this season – fringe. Tons and tons of gorgeous, sway when you walk, swoosh when you move, fringe. Completely out of my price range but absolutely budget blowing worthy. #clothingobsessed

Make sure you give the above three accounts a follow. And since it’s a link-up today, please go and visit some of the lovely ladies below who are sharing their personal Instagram favorites. So much inspiration for you today in one little ol’ place. Enjoy!

    Paris in Four Months is a truly amazing feed. How cool that she seems to capture the city in the way that you saw it! Sadly on my first trip to Paris, it rained nearly every day! Love your other picks!
