Six Insta Mamas to Follow Now
Instagram has quickly become my favorite social media channel (sorry, Pinterest) thanks to its endless feed of fashion, travel and design fodder.
But not far behind some of that eye candy indulgence comes another arena of inspiration that I adore: cool, stylish, interesting mamas from around the world who share bits and pieces of their day through a curated, creative lens.
These are not feeds full of potty training updates and baby food spills.
These are women who put a beautiful filter on modern day motherhood and who inspire through playful, pretty and picturesque points of view.
Here are some of my favorite Insta mamas to follow now (clockwise from top left):
Morgan Smith (@morgansmith) – this SoCal native (you may recognize her from her stint on MTV’s Laguna Beach many moons ago) and new mom to a baby boy documents her beachside life with bright, sunny images that feel real and really cool at the same time.
Shalice Noel (@shalicenoel) – this stylist and fashion blogger often keeps her identity cheekily under wraps via creative angles and lots of sunglass shots. But her personal style shines through regardless and reminds us busy mamas that juggling it all can be just as easy in a great pair of skinny jeans.
Leia Sfez (@leiasfez) – I introduced you to Leia a while back here after following her gorgeous Insta feed that documents her life in Paris with her husband and young daughter in the most beautiful, minimal style. Mainly a palette of white, black and the odd pink peony here and there, Leia’s eye for motherhood is beautiful and serene. Even when real life is not.
Sara (@bixbixbix) – Santa Barbara mama to two Sara of Bonzo, Chooch, Mushy & Me has become an Insta friend whose feed I adore for its warmth, heart and stylish California glow. She documents life with her two littles in a way that is approachable and aspirational all at once.
Bethany Menzel (@bethanymenzel) – Bethany is a Vancouver-based mama, hair stylist and blogger who caught my eye thanks to her cool, colorful look at life. Her pictures are a perfect mix of fashion, family and just plain fun.
Nicole Gonzalez (@lilliesandleon) – Nicole’s NYC-based look at life with her little boy Lucas (and baby on the way) shows that motherhood in the big city can be as heart-warming as it is hectic. She has an eye for finding a quiet sense of style in every day moments that bring them to life beautifully.
Hope you find a new feed (or two) to follow here – as always, you can also find me at @wwgwynethdo.
