Think of Kelsey White, the creator of the fashion and lifestyle blog Something Beachy, as your west coast BFF who knows all the fashion trends before anyone else does. This California-native isn’t only well-versed on being every fashionista’s Instagram girl crush, but was also a past social media manager who decided to walk away and be her own boss by starting Something Beachy in 2015. Talk about being confident. With over 85,000 Instagram followers and counting, White has surely made a name for herself in the blogging world.
