There are hundreds, maybe thousands of Chicago influencers out there. Everything from fashion to food to pets. It’s hard to narrow it down to just 10! BUT, I have managed to narrow it down. I’m sure most of you have seen or followed a lot of these, and if you’re not, what are you doing with your life! No, just kidding, but if you’re not, it’s worth taking a look. There’s everyone from travelers to foodies to fashionistas. And I’ve managed to find a fitness junkie as well for our men readers. Get your thumbs ready, because these 10 influencers are ‘follow’ worthy!
Alexis is a lifestyle blogger that shares her life, her family, and her adventures with her readers. The family started their journey in sunny San Diego, but quickly realized it wasn’t for them. They moved to Chicago and are continuing their adventures in the Windy City. If you love family and traveling, she’s a must-follow!
Abbie Kay is the owner of @shopunclaimed, a small and up-and-coming clothing boutique in none other than Chicago, and a lifestyle blogger. You’ll find affordable fashion finds, lifestyle tips and ideas, and skincare tips and tricks!
Kelly’s account is all about embracing life and spending time with her family. She is raising two little kudos in Lincoln Park and documents her adventures on her IG. She has a blog that details things you want to know about fashion, lifestyle, family, and weddings! We also recommend you to check out her blog.
This isn’t just any account or blog, this is a best friend blog! Two best friends, Caitlin and Dani, share their life and offer tips about fashion, beauty and wellness. Therefore, if you’re looking for some fun things to do or some fashion inspo with your best friend, this account is for you ladies!
Okay, okay. This wouldn’t be a roundup of influencers if it didn’t include a dog right? This handsome golden is going to steal your heart! Born in 2015, this special golden has been featured on Buzzfeed, ABC7 Chicago, Chicago Magazine, and CS Magazine. All I can say is, if you love dogs and/or goldens go follow him because he is the absolute cutest!
Adri and Kam are the owners of this beautifully curated and fun to scroll through IG page. Although Chicago natives and Bears fans, this couple travels the world to find their next adventure. They’re also the proud owners of the cutest Siberian Husky named Aria. If you want some travel tips and must-see places, this account is perfect for that.
Okay, gentlemen, you’re bored, I know. Up until now, it’s all been couples or woman influencers. But have no fear, this one is for you. If you’re a fitness junkie or just looking to get into fitness and want to follow a fellow gym rat (I mean that in the best way), James is your guy. His account is filled with the ever “worthy” mirror selfies and workout demos, so get your gym gear ready (and your camera ;)) because you’re in for a workout.
I’m sure everyone has seen or is already following this and the next two accounts. But I had to include foodie pages because… let’s be honest, it’s hard navigating the restaurant scene in Chicago when you have so many options. Follow this account for some food porn, restaurant inspo, and good vibes!
@sosimplysam is the owner of this account. Sam is a foodie and a boutique owner. Her foodie page is filled with delicious eats and mouth-watering cuisine. This is another account you need to follow for the best eats in Chicago!
Jessica, the owner of this relatively new foodie page, takes being a foodie to the next level. Now, there’s nothing wrong with the previous ones, but if you’re looking for not-so-ordinary Chicago eats, her page is a must-follow. I swear half of the things she eats I have never seen before. So， if you’re an adventurous eater, check out her page!
