Hi, my name is Darcy and I’m an Instagram addict. Seriously, I love the aspirational photos of cool girls’ outfits, desk setups, and of course their travel destinations! I spend altogether too much time scrolling through Instagram, double tapping my way through life.
And though my addiction might be bad for my time management and posture, it’s good for you because I have lots of thoughts about the best Instagram accounts to follow to feed your wanderlust. Check out my top picks (this month at least!) here:
Follow the Staycationers account, which is the travel editorial series from Taste the Style, for aspirational pool pics, beautiful bathtubs, and other stunning hotel shots that will make you want to plan anything but a staycation.Is there anything better than a big cushy hotel bed with white bedding and a room service cappuccino? I’m always down for sexy hotel photos, it’s like travel porn for me. If you’re similarly inclined, check them out!
If you want to talk aspirational travel photos, we’ve got to talk about the travel.escape Instagram account. This curated account makes the great outdoors look glamorous and expansive and almost makes me want to jump in a canoe. (Almost.) These are serious travel goals and photography goals, so follow along to train your eye while adding some spots to your bucket list.
This account celebrates female travels around the world by curating photos tagged with #wearetravelgirls. They’ve just started a blog as well, which is great because the account is full of stunning photos, all featuring a beautiful female in a stunning destination. It’s also a great account to follow if you’re looking for inspiration and new accounts to follow because they feature so many amazing travelers and photographers.
This account is full of adorable photos of food, landscapes, and the owner dancing in Italy! It’s a great mix of detail shots and wider photos, which is a great balance for a travel account, because, of course, travel is a mix of stunning vistas and delicious details! Warning: serious wanderlust is in your future if you click that little “follow” button.
I stayed in a couple Luxury Collection hotels last year in Europe (including the one in Milan, which this picture was taken from!) and absolutely loved them. They were so stunning that I went ahead and followed the hotel collection on Instagram for more luxe travel inspiration. I haven’t regretted it. They certainly showcase the more aspirational and luxurious side of things, which is great for feeding your wanderlust!
Let me know in the comments which Instagram accounts are your favorite for wanderlust dreaming. Maybe they’ll inspire my top accounts to follow next month! (And while you’re over there don’t forget to follow me!)
