@liz.adams_ // The blogger behind Sequins and Stripes, Liz has got to be hands down one of my favorite daily reads + Instagram accounts to follow. I absolutely love her style and have purchased many items that she has shared. Her photos are always so visually appealing and she really showcases the Chicago area well. One of my favorite reasons for following Liz, is that she really does a great job in connecting with her readers/followers. She shares a lot about her personal life too (she's having a baby!!), which really helps you feel like you know her. I don't know about y'all, but I prefer to follow bloggers or other accounts that I can relate to. So Liz is someone you should definitely follow!
@juliengarman // Julien is another one of the first DC blogger friends I made when I was starting out. I actually met her via Twitter!! How cool is that? We started chatting back and forth and decided to finally meetup. We've been IRL (in real life) friends ever since. She blogs over at It's Julien and has some of the greatest photos around. Aside from blogging, she also does photography and is pretty killer at it too. Julien has shot lookbooks for several shops here in DC and they've all turned out amazing. I highly recommend following Julien, because I know you'll love the content she creates and enjoy seeing the gorgeous photos she shares!
@shopcandyapple // I recently stumbled upon this boutique and have been obsessed with pretty much everything they've shared. While they don't have a website, you can easily shop from their Facebook photos or Instagram account. They provide their shop phone number and all the details you need for ordering. I saw this gorgeous multi-color tassel necklace last week on their Instagram. I called the next day and ordered over the phone. The necklace arrived to my doorstep a few days later. It was so easy and the quality for cost is wonderful. Not to mention their products are so on trend right now. Think "tassels" everywhere!! I can't wait to share more from them!
@lesleyannemurphy // You may recognize Lesley from Sean's season of the Bachelor. I initially started following her because well, I'm a huge fan of the show and she was from DC. So how could I not?! Since then, I've kept up with her because her photos are so visually amazing. Lesley currently lives in Argentina as a luxury travel blogger, so she's constantly sharing some of the most gorgeous pics from her travels. Yes, I am very jealous of her life.
