Best of Instagram: Featured Stylish Travel Girls (Summer 2015 Edition)
What is it about travel photography that makes travel so enticing? In a single frame we get a glimpse of a moment in someone else’s life, a look at their experience in an unfamiliar place. Perhaps it’s our chance to live vicariously through another. Or maybe it’s our inspiration for making travel plans of our own. An emotion, a sense of place, a person’s style… so much can be captured in a single-frame.
Three months ago, we posted our first round-up of #stylishtravelgirl posts on Instagram. Now it’s time for round two!
Again, I’m happy to report we had some fantastic (and ever so stylish) entries — and here we have her again: the stylish traveling woman is BACK. She’s fashionable. She’s adventurous. She’s photogenic. And she’s all over the globe!
