From Inspo to IRL: We Brought Our "Saved" Instagram Images to Life

Have you ever wondered what other people save on Instagram?
It's one of the handiest features Instagram has, and you can seamlessly create a mood board of your favorite things to refer back to. But what do people actually save when scrolling through Instagram?  Is it outfit inspiration and delicious food recipes or hilarious memes and skincare guides? You're not the only one wondering. We asked Team SN to share exactly what they've saved on Insta–and, we challenged our team members to recreate the images. See how Nikki, Taylor, Maggie, and Sydney brought their inspiration to life below.

Nikki's Remake

Some people think I’m crazy to leave my sweaters out for summer but I love throwing them on with jean shorts as an easy day to night look. I found this picture while scrolling my explore page and knew it was an outfit I would want to recreate at some point this summer!

Taylor's Remake

Amaka is one of my favorite follows on Instagram! One thing that always sticks out to me in her posts is the pop of color in every makeup look with a bright-colored eyeliner. For this look I used Urban decay’s 24/7 Eyeliner pencil in Vice, Ilia’s multi-stick in dreamer on my cheeks, Glossier’s futuredew as a highlighter and Summer Friday’s lip butter balm on my lips!

Maggie's Remake

I love creating a really beautiful table set up for dinner, so I’m always saving inspo imagery on Insta. A blue and white table is such a classic combination, but I love the pops of colorful flowers and the pink rosé in this image from India Amory, a home decor and linen brand. When recreating, I just focused on keeping everything in various shades of blue, and then I grabbed some pink hydrangeas to serve as my accents. And I made sure to include one of the best parts of the picture: a giant bottle of rosé!

Sydney's Remake

I followed this recipe for Roasted Eggplant With Miso and Sesame Seeds! I like eating more plant-based meals in the summer so I have been getting more adventurous with how I cook my vegetables to keep things exciting. My sister showed me this recipe and I’m hooked. To recreate this photo I followed the recipe, but opted for a lighter dish and bright daytime lighting which IMO really makes the food pop! 100% recommend trying this yourself!
