How To Instagram Like A Blogger, 13 Posts to Up Your Insta-Game

I’ve been on an Instagram hiatus for about three months now, and while it was nice to have a break from social media, I am ready to get back in the game. Upon my first scroll in what felt like forever, I noticed a whole new slew of trends #squadgoals is the new selfie, the more elaborate the pool floatie the better, and donut pics are a must! While I don’t usually post something because it’s trending, I do think it’s imperative for the sake of my Instagram comeback to keep up with the trends. So, in anticipation of my first Instagram post following my social media vacation, I came up with a guide for how to Instagram like a fashion blogger. Simply scroll down to see 13 inspiring posts from some of my favorite bloggers, and if you, like me, need an update on photo filtering apps I missed a lot these last 3 months click here.

1. POUTY PICS — Because posing for photos is so passé.


2. DOOR POSES — Fashion girls like posting pictures of doors just as much as they like taking photos of flowers and ice cream. #adoorable
