How the ‘Rich Kids of Instagram’ spent their summer vacations

Meanwhile, everyone else spent the entire summer on giant swan floats.

It’s easy to become green with jealousy while scrolling through the “Rich Kids of Instagram” blog, a three-year-old Tumblr and Instagram account that curates photos of the lifestyles of the wealthy. But it’s especially easy to feel the envy creep in during the summertime.

Jetting off in their private planes or helicopters, these stylish young adults spent their summers soaking in the sun in Hawaii, Fisher Island, and Montauk.

Ahead, get a glimpse of their summer 2016, which included crystal clear waters, amazing swimwear, and bags of cash.

They kicked off the summer season by spraying champagne from golden toy sniper rifles.

Hookah and drinks were also a popular pairing on nights out.

And there were plenty of lavish parties.
