28 Clever Captions For Selfies That'll Spread Your Glow All Over The 'Gram

Maybe it's the sunshine, the laughs you've been sharing with your best friends, or the brightly-colored walls you've been passing by — but you've been smiling a lot. Your cheeks actually hurt a little bit at the end of the day, because you're constantly cheesin' and sending good vibes into the world. You're walking down sidewalks with a grin on your face, and giving a wave to your neighbors who live in the apartment next to you. You're truly in a golden state of mind, and want to spread that positive glow on the 'Gram. The only things you need are some clever caption for selfies. Where can you find those? I think I have an idea.

Now, this might sound like a weird brag, but I'm actually a pro when it comes to social media. I know exactly what filters will bring out the warm, pastel pinks of the flower buds outside, and how to add that vintage look to your pictures. I know the best editing apps of the year, and which accounts you should follow for some serious #inspo. (Jaci Marie Smith has the cutest feed that's always filled with colorful travel and lifestyle content, and Zoe Lazerson has fashion-inspired photos that'll seriously make you want to add to your wardrobe.)

Most importantly, though, I know the quotes and puns that your feed needs to shine as bright as you. Since high school, I've been collecting song lyrics and captioning my photos with phrases like, "Be different, babe." And now it's your turn to use them on your 'Gram. Simply scroll through these 28 captions for selfies, and find one that speaks to your smile, your zodiac sign, and your soul. (I'll be cheering you on from this side of the screen!)
