This month, to celebrate all things September style, WLM selected six local influencers who have cultivated a serious following on Instagram—and serious wardrobes to boot.
Jenna Crandall, the blogger behind Lunchpails and Lipstick, boasts nearly 200,000 followers on Instagram and is in good company with the likes of Eva Amurri Martino of Happily Eva After and Julia Dzafic of Lemon Stripes. Who knew that style stars with this much social engagement were residing in the Westport community?
Some of these ladies are wives and moms and some have traditional careers, while others are busy building their own lifestyle brands online and via social media. In the case of Jennifer Falik, they seem to be performing a combination of all three. Jenn has spent time hanging out on set with the likes of Kathie Lee and Hoda sharing her beauty tips on how to keep your summer glow intact. It’s not all business for Jenn, though—a quick scroll through her Instagram account shows her out and about in Westport having a blast with her kids.
New to the area, Ilse of LiveLearnLuxeIt.com has a playful twist on fashion that is equal parts dreamy and fun. This petite Latina is in growth mode, and her social media following continues to multiply by the day. And last but not least, Stephanie Trotta of TheGirlGuide.com makes healthy breakfast bowls look just as pretty as her designer gladiator sandals.
All in all, these six social media darlings are sure to keep you busy with a constant supply of fresh content when it comes to fall fashion. And who knows? Maybe this article will inspire the next wave of social influencers, homegrown in the local community armed with their smartphones, glossy hair and creativity in spades.
