Jun 24 2015 - 12:15pm

She's not just the best-dressed doctor on TV, in real life, Mindy Kaling is a die-hard fashion fan [1], and there's no place you'll catch more of the action than her Instagram account [2]. While her busy career has left Mindy little time to keep up with her fashion blog [3] (yes, she totally had a blog!), this is the next best thing.

On the feed, the actress gamely experiments with trends, unabashedly welcomes brights and prints into her closet, and documents her love affair with clothes, bags, and shoes. With each post, Mindy charms us as much with her sense of humor as she does her sense of style. Scroll through to experience the Mindy Kaling effect on your own feed.
