instagrammin'

It took me a while to get into Instagram. I resisted because the fact of it is that my daily life is not always so beautiful! But I  thought I would share some of my favourites from my account here (user name: fieldguided), because not everyone has an Instagram account or an iPhone and friends of mine have jokingly told me that they feel left out (I know there are web viewers for Instagram, but that’s just one more item to add to an already long list of websites to check). Sometimes I cross-post to Twitter, sometimes I don’t, and apologies if these are all old news to you.



No makeup, satin housecoat, Something Else moonstone sunglasses from Summerland; we went to see Moonrise Kingdom recently and when we exited the theatre at 9.30PM the sky looked like this; a cool intersection we found while going for a coffee at Belljar (hi, Odette!); a locket from BHLDN, complete with a picture of the cats (this will most likely be attached to my wedding bouquet, because I am nuts); a photograph by Rodrigo Daguerre from the exhibition Youth; sandals that I splurged on to get married in (I’ll keep my white oxfords for dancing).



Hazards of throwing your clothes on the bed; the former Catholic schoolgirl in me loves a good church; trims; a party for Etsy Canada; Oreo in a party hat for our friend Annie’s birthday (sorry, Oreo—this lasted about four seconds); Heather sent me the newest OLO scent, Tulare, which smells of sun-baked oranges and earth.



I had a coupon code for a custom Case-Mate phone case, so I decided to create one using a detail from a painting by Adolphe √Čtienne Piot. I had to cut off her head and much of her dress but I really love her hands; postcards.

    1. It's definitely changing things! And yeah, I like it better than Facebook, but not as much as Twitter.

  4. I follow you on instagram but I love to see them blown up like this! Haha and I feel the same way, my life isnt always pretty but that makes it more fun! You need to hunt for the pretty things amongst the mundane. I also love it way more than twitter because it pretty much is twitter, but with photos! You can't beat that!

    1. They're from See by Chloe and I got them from a Canadian shop called Gravity Pope, but they're also available through Zappo's Couture.

    1. I use it to host my photos, but never use it for browsing or leaving comments. I think it has gotten quiet over there.

  23. I resisted getting Instagram for so, so long and now I have no idea why - I love it, I love the quality of photos it can produce, I love the quietness of it as far as belonging to another social network goes, and I'm rather annoyed that I didn't have it while I was travelling overseas last year!

    And those cats are just ridiculously delightful. Every one, from the birthday cat to the one in the picture frame.

    1. I was actively angry about Instagram! The filters annoyed me so much, plus when it became popular I still had an older phone that took FOREVER to load up the camera. It was just too frustrating to bother with it. But yeah, it's a nice way to spend time in lineups, although I have to admit I prefer looking at it on a computer than on my phone.

      Thank you!
