The sky is blue and the sun is shining in Los Angeles. I’m out in the backyard, compiling a list of the best summer Instagrammers while sipping an iced tea. Life, she’s good.
Truthfully, this was supposed to be a list of Instagrammers that do summer best, but it ended up being mostly a roll call of some of my favorite LA people, spots, and products. It just always feels like summer here, so Angelenos know how to do it right. I’m coming up on nearly two decades living in the city, but when I look at these pictures I still feel like the Torontonian who moved here with a parka and a pale face. Enjoy these pictures, and follow some of these awesome summer Instagrammers before the leaves start to turn…
I have a Linus Bike. They remind me of Vespa scooters, with their sorbet colors and saddle leather finishes. Linus is based in Marina Del Rey, CA; scroll real fast and you can feel the breeze.
@almondsurfboards Hot guys on beautifully-crafted surfboards? Yes, please.
Sarah’s blog, Smitten Studio, is one of my go-tos for design, home, and fashion… she’s so effortless and sunny, frolicking around the California coast.
@jennikayne Jenni is one of my style icons, and I covet nearly everything in her LA store. She also knows how to throw a killer backyard fete, and her kids are adorable.
THE most incredible catering company, their food looks like you whipped it up in your own home kitchen… except of course you didn’t because it’s just so… so beautiful. They’re always assembling something extraordinary for an al fresco event.
@malibufarm When I can escape to Helene Henderson’s restaurant for organic fare at the end of the Malibu Pier… well let’s just say that I’m a happy girl. And when I can’t… the pictures take me there.
There’s something about a miles of white linen sheets that is just so summer. I want to dive into Parachute’s sheets and not get out ’til next Sunday.
@thechalkboardmag Pressed Juicery’s Magazine is as delicious as their drinks: Great celebrity guest editors, lots of recipes, and some inspiration for staying cute in your cut-off shorts.
These photographs aren’t from California. As if you couldn’t tell. Follow ASAP for some incredible Hawaii pics.
@marysiaswim My new favorite swim line, and their pictures are just hot hot hot. Love the scallops, don’t you?
What say you? Any awesome summer ‘Grammers that I missed? Send me a link?
