It's no secret that Mindy Kaling is an Instagram aficionado, sharing stylish snap after stylish snap on her account. And now, InStyle's June cover star is giving us the inside scoop on how she decides which of her ensembles warrant an #OOTD post.
"I like to Instagram a piece of clothing if it's a little bit surprising," Kaling says in the video above. One item that made the cut? A bright Mara Hoffman cutout bathing suit, which also happened to be her first time posting a photo while rocking swimwear.
