Influencer: Ingrid Brown

Our contributor and Insta-influencer on loving and sharing her life in the smallest state


Originally from Brazil, you’ve lived all over the country from New York to Phoenix, and appear to truly adore Rhode Island. What makes the Ocean State home?

Rhode Island will always be home to me. It’s where we brought one of our daughters into the world, and where my husband started his solar business, Rooftop Power. My family embraces everything that Rhode Island has to offer. I don’t take anything for granted, especially the seasons.


The content on your Instagram (@ingridbrown_) is both aspirational and relatable, and explains why you have over 82K followers! We would love to hear about what you create and share on your feed.

Thank you! I’m a mom of two little girls and that is the hardest job in the world. I want to let other parents know that they are not alone. The days are long but the years are so fast! I post photos of everyday moments: my girls, my beauty routine and favorite products, our favorite Rhode Island restaurants, and places to explore.


What are some of your favorite restaurants?

This is a very hard question! There are so many delicious places in Rhode Island! Bacco Vino & Contorni is always a favorite in Federal Hill. For a casual easy pizza night, my family loves Federal Hill Pizza on Chalkstone. For seafood, nothing beats Hemenway’s.


With spring just around the corner, any clothing trends you can’t wait to wear?

Spring dressing is all about optimism, and I can’t wait to wear the bright colors and bold prints (especially florals!) of the season. I am obsessed with all things statement-shoulder, from puff sleeves, to oversized shoulders, and padded boyfriend jackets. Honestly, I love following the trends but at the end of the day, wear what makes you feel comfortable and beautiful. It’s about personal style – there are no rules!


What is your advice for other influencers on getting started?

Be true to who you are. Talk about something you’re passionate about, whether it’s lifestyle, travel, fitness, awareness, etc. Stay humble and be kind to everyone.
