Instagram. How did we ever live without it? It's quickly become the place to follow friends, fashion bloggers, brands, designers, and self-proclaimed experts in nearly every field from around the globe. And while I love seeing photos of exotic locales and someone's $1,000 Louboutins, I find that I'm most inspired by extraordinary, everyday gals who make a trip to Starbucks seem glamorous, or who manage to put together a runway-ready look without spending a fortune. So allow me to introduce you to 5 fashionable Instagrammers that are inspiring me right now with their daily snaps.
Who are your favorite Instagrammers? Let me know in the comments, I'm always looking for fresh ideas (and more ways to waste time)! Oh, and you can always follow me, too, if you'd like. My username is budgetbabe.

Sara is a girl after my own heart, sourcing the most stylish outfits (and home decor) from a mix of stores like TJ Maxx and vintage boutiques. While nearly all of her Instagram shots contain inspiring outfit ideas, she caught my eye with this oxblood ensemble consisting of a cozy knit sweater, matching denim and the perfect statement necklace to pull it all together. Totally copying.

Jessica is a New York City blogger who Insta-documents details of her covetable wardrobe and accessories, like the Zara heels (above) she nabbed for under $50. Her preppy-glam style is irresistible and accessible at the same time, like how she mixes leopard and burgundy for the office or puts together a snappy arm party.

It's tough to pick just one image that showcases the genius that is Piper Case, a fashionable gal with a penchant for stripes, leopard print, polka-dots, nail polish, wrist bling and coffee. Sure, oodles of fashion bloggers love these things but Piper Case mixes and matches them so well. Plus she shops at Old Navy (but you'd never guess).

Karla chronicles her incredible thrift store finds on Instagram, from vintage Coach bags to unique decor items. She also posts outfit pics almost every day that range from classic with a twist to head-to-toe leopard - and nearly everything she wears is budget (aka Target) or thrifted. Jealous!
