Cropped Blazer // Boyfriend Jeans // Bekket Sneakers // White T-shirt

I can’t really say what my style is exactly like, but recently I have wanted to wear nothing but sneakers and boyfriend jeans. This outfit is a funny twist on something your supposed to wear to work paired with something that I would love to wear everyday (ALL DAY). I think that the structured fit of a cropped blazer paired with a pair of baggy denim is a contrasting look that is super chic but also SO comfortable and easy. Who doesn’t want to be easy (get your mind out of the gutter)? I know that I have been completely MIA lately, and that is because I have recently taken a new job as the Marketing Manager of my favourite boutique in Brisbane, Calexico. Its going to be a lot of hard work managing both that as well as Katie Eve, but I am committed to making both brands as best as they can be. On a lighter note, I will be setting off on a month long vacay to my birth place, the US of A. Get ready for a live update of all the fun trips Im taking, and of course all the fun stuff that I am wearing! I get to go from summer weather back to winter (my favourite time of the year). Winter clothing is just so much fun to wear. There are so many options and so much layering to be done when its winter. Stay tuned for some fun updates! xx

Wide Leg Trousers and Denim

So Rachel Zoe can basically do not wrong, and these pants are an ode to that statement. They are not only high-waisted, but wide-legged, flared, and printed with an amazing black tuxedo strip down the side. I must say these are some of my favourite pants to wear if I want to show off a little bootilicious butt action. You could wear these pants with a crisp white button down and pumps for a chic work outfit. Or you could style them like I did here with a chambray shirt and booties for a possibly semi-formal day-time outfit. If your looking to take these pantalones out for a night on the town, throw on some strappy heeled sandals and a sexy black crop top… ready.. set… GO.

Zara Jacket (similar)  // Remain Skirt (similar) // Madewell T-shirt // Zara Pumps (similar) // Pop Basic Necklace (similar)

This slouchy tee from Madewell and Leather mini-skirt are super cute in any situation but as easy as a T-shirt and leather skirt are to wear during the day, they are just as easy to dress up for night. To make this outfit after hours ready, I styled it with this amazing zara striped jacket (this option is adorable!) and a pair of nude heels. I also put on a statement necklace from Pop Basic.

This past weekend was Adam’s 28th Birthday! We spent it in Burleigh Heads. It’s this amazing coastal town South of Brisbane. We ate yummy food and tanned by the beach. I love going down the coast because I always seem to find the best fruit juice bars and smoothies. Plus every single cafe or restaurant in Burleigh has coconut water, which is turning into a replacement for normal water for me lately.

Ive got an exciting shoot this week! Cant wait to share it with everyone. xx

Paris + Stella McCartney

Madewell T-shirt (similar) // Remain Leather Skirt (similar) // Stella McCartney Loafers 

So this Madewell T-shirt is basically the most comfortable thing I have ever owned. I have found this to be true for all the T-shirts I buy from them, and recently I have bought a lot. I think I have 6 new Madewell T-shirts and they are becoming some what of an everyday outfit.

I am so excited that I got my hands on one of the most popular shoes of the year, Stella McCartney’s loafers! I really really love Stella, and to top it off she has some truly amazing environmentally friendly policies in her label. Now I am not going to sit here and tell you that I don’t wear leather and I don’t buy new clothes all the time in order to wear them once and have them sit in the back of my closet. I am probably a perfect example of why the textile industry creates so much pollution each year. But by buying Stella’s clothing, it makes you feel a little bit better when you sit and think about just how much damage this industry does. These shoes aren’t really leather but they still look amazing.

Although these shoes look amazing, definitely break them in a bit before you go out and wear them on a long day. They are really stiff and can rub your heels raw.

The look amazing with a leather skirt like this but they would also look great with some slouchy track trousers or wide leg pants.

I guess it all depends on your mood!!!

Pop Basic – Night Time

Zara Blazer (similar) // Zara Shoes (similar) // GoldSign Denim // Pop Basic Tee // Chanel Lip Stick

In order to transition this outfit from Day to Night I made a few simple adjustments that I think really made it possible to wear this out to a date, dinner, or drinks. I threw on a pair of pointed toe ankle strap heels and a pop of bright red lip colour. I also pulled my hair up into a messy pony.

These heels were an amazing find, only $40.00 and they are one of the most comfortable pair I own. Also, if you are looking for a good red lipstick nothing beats this Chanel Rouge Allure colour. This colour is number 67 but I haven’t been able to find it online. Some colours I have found online that I think would be similar if not identical to this one are, number 98 and 104. This specific lipstick is hydrating and has a shine but you can also purchase it in a matte colour which is also amazing.

Pop Basic – Day Time

Pop Basic Tee (similar) // Zara Blazer (similar) // GoldSign Denim // Acne Boots // Lack of Colour Hat // Alexander Wang Purse

So I was recently sent this amazing striped tee from Pop Basic, a online boutique based in San Francisco that specialises in all basics. This tee is super comfy and a awesome staple to have in your wardrobe.

I recently saw one of my favourite bloggers, Sincerely Jules, style a tee similar to this one and I absolutely LOVED it. I wanted to take her styling of the outfit but then translate it into a daytime outfit as well. I think that the black oversized Lack of Colour Fedora give this look a really chic but effortless aspect. Since this portion of my outfit post is a “daytime” look, the Acne Pistol Boots really dress down the outfit compared to my second take on it.

Levis #501 and Acne

Levis cover page Levis-2 Levis-1 Levis-3 Levis-6 Levis-4 Levis-7 Levis-8

I have been slacking on the content and really haven’t gotten to show everyone all of the amazing things I have been accumulating over the past couple of months.

To start off, I got this amazing R13 leather jacket for my birthday in July. Since its going to be one of the last few days I will be able to wear it until I am back in SF in December, I want to take full advantage. Brisbane’s summers are so hot its almost hard to wear a sundress, let alone a leather biker jacket.

In August, I went down to Sydney to run (walk) the City to Surf. While I was there I couldn’t help but make a cheeky stop into Acne Studios. I LOVE their clothing and especially any leather product they make. I have had my eye on the Pistol boots for a year or so and thought since Acne doesn’t have that many stores in my near vicinity it was a good excuse to finally purchase these lovely ladies. I know they will be a wardrobe staple for years to come.

Ive also recently come into ownership of this lovely Alexander Wang top and Levis #501 shorts. Again who doesn’t love a good cut off or a signature white tee with an extra cool design? A little peekaboo skin never hurt anyone.

I hope that you all are loving the new site and I have some VERY exciting news to share with everyone next week!!!

Plus I may just start your weekend off with a bang tomorrow

Stay Tuned!!

I shot todays look with the amazingly talented Laura Brain. We did a cute little OOTD video also. Hope you love!

Grace Markham Photography Shoot + Laura Brain Videography BTS

Photography by Grace Markham

Ok so basically, Grace is the most amazing photographer I have ever worked with. I had so much fun with this shoot. Grace made me feel comfortable and had the sickest ideas for shoot locations. Plus she hooked me up wit her friend and colleague, Jim Jirarnuttaru, to do the gorgeous beauty looks for each outfit. He does make up for High Fashion, Weddings, and basically anything you want. I loved his work.

You can view all of Grace’s work at:

GraceMarkham.com.au 

I wanted to really play on the theme of #TheNewKatieEve by doing two completely different looks. This was to illustrate my two style personalities of Katie compared to Eve. This shoot literally and figuratively played on the second new theme of “Day” and “Night”.  I want to show my amazing readers how to take a daytime outfit and then translate that into a nighttime outfit. I know how annoying it is to be somewhere all day and want to go out but not know how to take those sometimes casual or work outfits and make them into something sexy or fun in a way that would look good out with your friends.

I am so excited for this new chapter of Katie Eve and really look forward to the long journey ahead!

Another amazing media addition to this post is the Video that the amazing Laura Brain shot of the behind the scenes of my shoot with Grace. Check it out below or you can view this on Laura’s website at:
