Let’s talk Instagram. In particular, how to achieve that flawless Instagram feed.
Over the years, I learned a thing or two about planning that eye-catching grid, yet I still feel like I haven’t found my aesthetic. It’s both because I like to switch things up quite regularly, and because there’s just too much to share! Most of the time, once I figure out how I like my Instagram feed to be, there comes a photo that I simply feel like sharing. RIGHT NOW. Even if it doesn’t really go with my ongoing theme… What do you do?
There are many influencers out there who rocking the content creation game, so I reached out to some of them and simply asked for their pro tips on achieving that flawless Instagram feed. The response was amazing and I can’t wait to share it all with you. I hope you’ll learn from them as much as I did. Shall we?

Use the tool UNUM to plan out which posts compliment each other best.
Take quality over quantity.

Use the app SNUG to plan your feed- mix it up, don’t post 4 selfies in a row.
Bring down the saturation a bit & always shoot in natural light.

To help my feed be cohesive I’ve chosen a common theme of blacks, whites, grays and pinks. I usually choose neutral backgrounds and buildings for my background when I take photos. If a photo is too bright or saturated and the colors don’t exactly match my feed, I’ll tone down the Saturation of those colors and play up the ones that do match my grid . I also love including lots of flowers because it keeps everything so pretty and girly. I plan my feed on VSCO app and I usually know what I’m posting a week in advance to keep it as cohesive as possible.

I think it’s all about planning the grid 🙂 Use an app called UNUM to plan it a weeks in advance! I also always make sure diagonal posts are similar in background color! You always want to create a “checker board” look with your grid 🙂

I always try to mix it up! For example if I post a photo of myself I like the next photo to be something else like a flat lay, city, food or even a #FromWhereIStand. I try to do this because I love when other feeds are a mix of lifestyle and fashion!
There you have it!
To sum it all up: Use an app to plan your feed in advance (I do that with UNUM also), switch it up (e.g., I don’t like when my outfit photos “stand” on top of each other, so I always make sure there’s a gap in between), stay consistent (if you use a certain palette/ hues/ filters – stick with it or when you decide to try something new, keep the new posts coming in that new aesthetic), and BE ORIGINAL. There’s many amazing feeds out there to look up to, but being authentic is what will get you far and consistent growth!
