It’s almost finals season, and that means a ton of new opportunities for procrastination. I’m eagerly looking for new accounts to follow on Instagram, and especially been looking for travel accounts [see previous post, rome!]. I wanted to share some of my favorite Instagram accounts with y’all. (in no particular order)
1 | @juliahengel
Julia takes the cutest photos of travel & her daily life. I feel myself keeping a list of places to go and outfits to find when I look at her posts.
2 | @nigelbarker
So you wanna be on top? Seriously though, forget America’s Next Top Model this could be America’s next top Instagram account, with a little bit of everything to keep you guessing. Also, he’s clearly a professional photographer so the photos are fantastic.

One of my sorority sisters, Emily, started this fashion account a few months ago. Shocker, she’s really pale but she has amazing style and I like to see her outfits on the days I don’t see her in person!
4 | @humansofny
I think almost everybody has been in love with Humans of New York for quite some time now, but this is an obvious one. I like seeing the photos better on Instagram sometimes, because it’s less cluttered than Facebook and you can really focus on them. Also, spoiler alert sometimes they’re posted on Instagram first!
5 | @carly (The College Prepster)
Carly is great for some blog inspiration and just cute, colorful pictures of NYC/Connecticut. I like to see what working for herself looks like, and although I’m not the preppiest person in the world her outfit shots are so cute.
6 | I’ve been on the hunt to find some amazing Italy instagram accounts to get excited for my semester in Rome. Late last night, I think I found three that hit the jackpot. The first of those three is
Nicolee features amazing shots of Rome and her surroundings, from flowers, to bicycles, to anything else that catches her eye. I feel like it’s a more intimate look at the city I’ll soon be calling home, and a great way to start figuring out my must-visit sites!
7 | @saverome
I love this account for the history, as it’s mostly architecture and the details behind what used to be on sites in Rome. My inner history nerd feels like I’m learning something about the city and its past.
8 | @notmynonni
When the tagline is grandmas and grandpas of Italy and beyond…you know it’s gonna be good. This account is so funny and still shows some of the Italian way of life. I have yet to see a Nonni that’s not adorable! My personal favorite might be Nonna trying to find her Vespa keys...
9 | @mommyshorts
Mommyshorts never fails to deliver amazingly witty photos of her and her kids, living in NYC. Lately, I’ve also loved seeing all their cross-country travels. Morale of the story: I’m a sucker for cute kids and a sassy comment.
10 | @Shoptiques
I love Shoptiques’ fashion, food and general New York City posts. They also post amazing inspirational quotes just when you need them (like Monday mornings!). Fun fact – I’ll be a Marketing/PR intern for them this summer, so be sure to stay tuned.
And of course, I have to add in that I think the from campus with love instagram is pretty cool 🙂
What are your favorite accounts?
