links of the moment: august edition.

Aug 7, 2015

This month, I've placed a fair amount of emphasis on Instagram, through my interview with Insta-maverick Arushi Khosla. As it was one of my most popular posts yet, I want to revisit the series every month with more 'Insta' tips and tricks. For this month's most noteworthy reads from across the internet – which I've curated during my rather lazy final weeks of summer – there are some pieces focused exclusively on building an Instagram account to be proud of. Read on to be directed to other amazing sites and spots to indulge in some summer reading, before this season slips away.

If only I had this post when I set out to start this blog – though that was about six years ago. One of the biggest names in fashion and lifestyle blogging, Chriselle Lim, just created a simple guide to starting the blog you'd want. With understatedly smart advice and graphics to die for (see above!), any aspiring fashion blogger would be motivated to pursue what they have yet to.  

The flat-lay is the new trend in the world of Instagram. Beautifully laid-out designs, clean backgrounds, and maybe even some subtle product placement – that would wrap up the flat-lay nicely. In this gorgeous video tutorial, the blogger behind Park and Cube shows us exactly how to do it.

Meet Modern Citizen by Who What Wear
I frequent Who What Wear for my daily dose of fashion, outfit inspiration, and some new blog recommendations. In this article, I was delighted to discover Modern Citizen, a brand 'for women, by women'. With clean pieces, flowing silhouettes and a winter-esque color palette, Modern Citizen will be a place I'll be shopping at very soon.

And while a break is always important and frankly necessary, so is staying motivated. For all the little tasks you need to finish, Darling Magazine has a few tips on how to stay on track.
