#FollowFriday: Aussie It-Girls To Stalk On Insta
Our go-to source for real-time inspiration, we’re always perusing Instagram for new It-girls to follow, whether their forte is posting enviable #OOTD snaps or sharing unreal #nofilter photos from an exotic vacation. Further fueling our social media addiction, this crop of Aussie babes has us double-tapping on the regular on account of their covetable lifestyles—read: a heavy stream of beach pics and effortless, “I woke up like this” glamour shots. Ahead of Australia Fashion Week (kicking off on April 12th), we highly recommend following these models, bloggers and editors hailing from down under.
The blogger behind Chronicles of Her and beauty editor of The File, Carmen Hamilton is a fashion girl through and through—plus, she's mastered the art of the half-bun, which in itself merits a follow in our book.
We can't get enough of blogger and model Natascha's travel diaries and behind-the-scenes snaps from seaside locales. Healthy foodies take note—she also runs a second account dedicated to clean eating full of gluten-, dairy- and sugar-free recipes.
An extension of her cult-followed blog, Amanda Shadforth's Instagram serves as a perfectly art-directed daily diary of her sights, musings and, of course, designer-laden wardrobe.
Gymnast-turned-fashion-maven Nadia currently runs the blog Fairfax Journal (her photo shoots read as true fashion editorials) and consults for various prominent Australian designers on account of her seasoned sartorial eye.
A regular face in look books and editorials for bohemian-minded brands such as LF and Tigermist, Mimi's enviable, mermaid-like locks and cute off-duty style having us girl-crushing hard.
Yet another multi-hyphenate (blogger, stylist, photographer, creative director), Margaret's penchant for the aesthetically pleasing isn't her only craft—the petite brunette also has a law degree from The University of Sydney. #Goals.
An OG of Aussie It-girls, take a peek into Lara's life (Sam Worthington is her main squeeze, in case you needed additional motivation) and stay up-to-speed with her latest venture, a line of tanning and body-care products called The Base.
If you want to be instantly transported to crystal blue waters and sandy beaches, you'd be remiss to not scope out Miss Knowles' feed. With her chameleon-like ability to effortlessly transition from bikini babe to high-fashion glamazon, trust us—Elyse is one to watch.
One-half of the blogging duo behind inspo mecca They All Hate Us, Elle is the quintessential Aussie girl (great hair, killer tan, innately stylish). Just because she's partial to half-body style shots doesn't mean there's anything less than a full dose of outfit envy in each post.
One word: shoes. Tash's amazing collection of designer footwear has us convinced that we should be living solely in fabulous sandals so long as the weather permits. The other half of the They All Hate Us duo, she also happens to rock jean shorts so expertly that we're anxious to dust off our cut-offs for summer.
