EM: Why did you start blogging?
SBS: Starting a blog was something I had been thinking about since junior year of college, but didn't actually do until March of this year. Although sometimes I feel like I wasted time in waiting, The person I was in college, the way I dressed, the food I ate, and the lifestyle I had, was not at all reflective of who I am today, and thus what is reflected in Styled By Skylar. I've always loved fashion, shopping and picking out what to wear. It's something I did for my friends and roommates all the time, and they were always coming to me for style-related advice. Over time, that grew into even more, and thus I decided to launch my blog, realizing that I had things to say that people actually care to hear.
EM: So what exactly is Styled by Skylar?
SBS: Styled By Skylar is an extension of my Instagram account, in a way that the site aims to be both a creative outlet, and a digital resource. While I absolutely love Instagram, I wanted to give my followers a place where they could get more than just tiny little squares on their phone. I have always loved writing and through the blog, I have the opportunity to express myself and connect with my audience in an entirely new way. So long story short, I started blogging because I wanted to express my life and style, and connect with like-minded content creators, in a new and more creative way.
EM: What inspires you in life and your blog?
SBS: I am incredibly inspired by success. Though I have to admit it sometimes makes me jealous, seeing others succeed drives me to work toward my own success. And sometimes that's just realizing that it's possible to do what you love and make a living out of it, or to find a balance between diet and exercise extremes. Watching others achieve their dreams, start companies, and do what they love is my daily inspiration for my blog, my career and my life in general.
EM: One last question, what would be your dream summer vacation?!
SBS: My dream summer vacation would be a cross-country road trip, stopping in every state!
