When I became a mom five months ago, for the first time (probably since high school), I genuinely felt like I became a member of a club—a girl gang, if you will, of strong, tenacious, empathetic women who all had a mutual understanding of what it means to go through the crazy-amazing journey that is motherhood. This club, of course, is openly accessible through the wonderful world Instagram—a platform that gives me the freedom to connect, follow, and get sartorially inspired by fellow mothers. I spent a lot of time (while my baby was napping) during my maternity leave finding moms on Instagram who were documenting motherhood so gracefully. So ahead, I'm sharing a few of my favorites—moms with incredible style and wit.
Vanessa Breuer: @vanessabreuer1
If you're a fan of L.A.-based brand Dôen, then you may recognize Vanessa Breuer, who models its beautiful, vintage-inspired pieces on its site. The Ibiza-based mother of two has a free-spirited Insta feed that transports you to a place where life is about simple pleasures—healthy food, weekends in the garden, and beach days with the kids. Her effortless bohemian aesthetic makes us want to head to the countryside and live in floral maxi dresses and embroidered tunics all day every day.
Pandora Sykes: @pandorasykes
I have a serious style crush on British writer, journalist, and mama to baby girl Zadie, Pandora Sykes. Her bright and smiley Instagram feed is sartorially refreshing. She has an affinity for color and prints, and she always puts together the coolest outfits that mix vintage and designer.
Sai De Silva: @scoutthecity
If you love matching mommy-and-me outfits amid the backdrop of New York City, then this account is a must-follow. Sai and her kids, Scout and Dash, are the most stylish family in the city, rocking a mix of high and low brands.
Anouk Yve: @anoukyve
A brand consultant from the Netherlands, Anouk has simple yet striking style that's a minimalist's dream. We love it when her two children make cute star appearances in her posts.
Leandra Medine: @leandramcohen
Founder of lifestyle site Man Repeller and new mom of twin girls, Leandra has quirky-cool style that I'm obsessed with, and her witty sense of humor is refreshing as she navigates motherhood.
Renata Bueno Gelfi: @theglefis
I seriously want to live in Renata's Gelfi's feed. The photographer and stylist captures her three girls in a truly artistic way. Their style exudes an effortless East Coast rustic charm.
