Sky was the emblem of my teenage days; anyone who knew me well in high school knows how much I adored Sky for her music, her attitude, and of course, her style.  Sky definitely inspired my gradual shift from preppy/girly to edgy/grunge.  Her tough, raw, look of combat boots and graphic jackets and sweaters balanced with perfect eyeliner and lipstick created a whole new set of style and beauty goals for me.  Sky’s style, like anyone’s, changed as she rebranded her music – her old music is poppier, her hair long and bouncy, while her newer sound is more alt as she rocked a bleached chop. Both looks are iconic, however, and throughout time, Sky can still be found rocking Jeremy Scott and MAC’s Russian Red – as can I.

For this look, I channeled Sky by rocking second-day tousled hair with black top and bottom liner. Sky is often photographed wearing loose blouses with more tight fitting shorts or skirts and loves to make her socks part of the outfit. Are you a fan of Sky? What’s your favorite song or campaign of hers? Feel free to start a discussion in the comments.

Hey, everyone! Long time no post, but now that I’m done with my Bachelor’s thesis there’s no excuse for not writing 😝! Today, I’ve dressed it waaaay up thanks in part to Grayton Automatic Watches! They sent me a beautiful and luxurious silver watch accented with blue hands. I felt like a CEO in this ensemble, but besides my watch and my Longchamp bag, everything else in this look is from your favorite fast-fashion retailers (i.e. Forever 21 and H&M). Looking sharp doesn’t have to break the bank, and I’m a huge fan of mixing high and low clothes and accessories! This look was definitely one that’s more outside my comfort zone, but I felt sophisticated and ready to take on the world!
