Whether you’re in desperate need of a fashion fix or escape to the beach or simply a foodie at heart, consider these must-follow Instagram accounts the best eye candy in South Florida.

2. Purse Blog
“Shallowly obsessing” over handbags since 2005, we recently got purse-onal with the Fort Lauderdale-based Editor-in-Chic of Purse Blog, Megan Mahoney. The blog’s Instagram (270,000 follwers strong, no less!) is a colorful pastiche of lust-worthy handbags by designers such as Prada, Chanel, Gucci and more. So just when you thought you were a handbag fiend, well, Megan will give you a run for your money. Sigh.
3. Carolyn Mara
This Coral Gables-based mama of two boys gives us serious photography envy. Just scroll through her feed to see precisely what we mean. Using magician-like iPhone wizardry (think duct tape), Carolyn can transform something as ordinary as a paved driveway into something extraordinary as portrayed in the photo above.
4. Nacho Polo
Perhaps it’s his Cheshire Cat-like smile. Or his breathtaking images of South Beach’s interiors and beaches. Nacho’s images put the “magic” in “Magic City.” His keen sense of fashion is the added bonus. Same goes for those washboard abs. Swoon.
When Gabriel Sanchez isn’t snapping shots of his fashion blogger wife, Daniela Ramirez, the photgrapher and content creator is busy capturing fascinating photos of Florida and beyond. His feed will whisk you away from the spellbinding beaches of SoBe to the mystical canyons of Arizona.
6. Fat Girl Hedonist
Do NOT — we repeat — do not follow Fat Girl Hedonist if you’re on a diet. The Miami-based food blogger has a knack for next-level #FoodPorn. Think gooey french toast, spicy grilled shrimp, Nutella-soaked pancakes and more. #Foodie #Foodgasm #InstaFood
7. The Petite Poet
This Miami-based mini fashion blogger in one trendy tot. From collaborations with Lacoste to Melissa Shoes and more, Mia is a pint-sized fashionista and a breath of youthful fresh air in the local blogging community. In fact, a gander at her feed makes us want to be a kid again.
A photographer by trade, Karla Garcia Costa‘s Insta is the perfect mix of fashion, lifestyle and simple pleasures. Born and bred in Miami, she portrays South Florida the way it should be seen: Beautifully colorful.
