10 of the best Instagram pics YOU’VE tagged us in over Summer!
Last week, we hit the 20k mark on Instagram. A pretty momentous milestone, so cheers for that one, guys. To celebrate, we’ve had a closer look through the photos you lovely lot have tagged us in over the last few months, and picked ten of our absolute favourites. From cocktail-sipping selfies to beachfront panoramas, it’s safe to say it’s been an amazing summer for the NC girl. And what with the warmer season just about ready to clock off for another year, we couldn’t think of a more fitting send-off…
1. @alicecatherine - Polka Dot Blouse
Self-confessed 'clothing enthusiast', @alicecatherine, channels Riviera vibes with her nautical pairing of our Navy Polka Dot Blouse and white high-rise denim jeans. But the French connotations don't stop there, as her au naturel makeup and heavy set fringe provides the perfect touch of Parisian polish.
2. @allthatisshe – Peach Midi Dress
From the unique camera perspective to the desaturated photo filter, there’s nothing we don’t love about this pic of @allthatisshe in our Pleated Midi Skirt. The pop of peach really stands out against the woodland flooring, and the ivy leaf in her hand is a super cute focal point.
3. @itspaulaalmeida – Stripe Rib Bodysuit
Street meets chic in this pic of NC babe @itspaulaalmeida, hitting the courts of NYC in our Stripe Rib Bodysuit. And as much as we love a little monochrome, the vivid splash of graffiti in the background really adds something.
4. @dresslikeamum – Gingham Midi Dress
A shabby-chic teal window-shutter, set amidst rustic brickwork and framed by a border of shrubs, this wall was destined for insta fame, and fash-blogger @dresslikeamum absolutely knew it! Wearing our tres chic Gingham Midi Dress, you’d be hard pushed to find a pic that screamed ‘summer in the South of France’ any louder.
5. @fifinewbery – Palm Leaf Beach Shorts
There’s a timeless elegance to all of @fifinewbery’s photography, and this hazy shot of the model-turned-blogger is no exception. Wearing our high waisted Fern Print Beach Shorts, it could just as easily have been taken back in the seventies as it could last week, thanks to her classic styling and free-spirited locks of feathered blonde hair.
6. @marita_knappen – Geo Kimono
Corrugated iron. Check. Quirky backwards pose. Check. Kimono sporting a geometric pattern inspired by this season's ‘global traveller’ trend. Check. All in all, @marita_knappen was onto a winner when this scroll-stopping Instagram shot was taken.
7. @maryljean – Stripe Bardot Top
As favoured by our previous list of favourite fashion instagrammers, neutral coloured backgrounds are always a winner when it comes to those precious likes. But throw in a pair of sun-kissed shoulders, a totally on-trend Stripe Bardot Top, and a watermelon cocktail served in an actual watermelon, and like @maryljean with her 3000+ likes, you can expect a notification or two.
8. @sophieeggleton – Polka Dot Wrap Dress
Part of our Retro Revival capsule collection, trailblazer @sophieeggleton gets it absolutely right with this shot of our Polka Dot Wrap Dress. From the brooding sea to the vintage-style boater hat, it’s an absolutely refreshing break away from the usual over saturated, sun-drenched beach snap.
9. @stephgonzalezm – White Bardot Top
We’re guessing you’ve flicked past your fair share of palm tree shots this summer, but few come close to the firework-like brilliance of this tropical specimen, as found by @stephgonzalezm. Plus, what better way to highlight your new Nobody’s Child White Cold Shoulder Top.
10. @grace.goodier – Black Maxi Dress
As backdrops go, the Vatican’s definitely up there. But if you are dead set on using a world-renowned 500-year-old structure to frame your shot, make sure your get-up's a good’un. Thankfully, @grace.goodier (our modern ballerina, if any of you are thinking she looks sorta' familiar), had the god given sense to wear our Lace Insert Maxi Dress.
Didn’t make the cut? Not to worry, as we’ll be making the best Instagram pics a regular feature going forward.
