Equipped with the Basics


Some of you may not know this but Monday to Friday, I am the marketing manager and online editor at the boutique, Calexico. This past week we rented a unique space for one of our weekly shoots. The apartment was decorated by the owner who happened to be a furniture designer and architect. He has a modern aesthetic to design and makes very interesting pieces. It all went perfectly with the vibe I was aiming for and allowed us to showcase all the amazing basics and essential pieces Calexico has to offer. It was my first mini campaign that I styled (with some help from the model who is also my sudo-assistant), shot, and edited. I love the colour tones in all the photos and the moodiness of the lighting. Cant wait to continue posting all my work outside of just the shoots I do for myself!


Sponsored Video: NIVEA’s Sun Summer Resolution Campaign


{Just some of my moody inspiration of sun, sand and surf}

As a lot of you may know, I grew up in California for most of my life. After I turned 18 I hopped on a plane and moved to Arizona for 4 years to attend ASU. Then after I graduated, I spent a brief stint back in San Francisco before I packed my bags once again to move to Australia. Point is, I’ve spent my entire life in places that are key destination spots for sun, surf, or holiday weather. While this has been a luxury I would never trade in, it comes with a risk of skin damage and dangers like skin cancer. I know that I spent YEARS in Arizona laying out by my pool with no sunscreen on. Now that I am older (and wiser) I have developed a greater desire to protect my skin when I am in the sun (you only have one face!). Since being in Australia, which has one of the strongest rays of sun in the world, I know this from the experience of painful sunburns, it has been even more important for me to put on sunscreen. As annoying as sunscreen is to put on and it’s ability to keep us from getting as bronzed as we would all really like, it’s really the only thing that has the ability to fully protect our skin from the sun!

NIVEA has created an amazing video on the coast of Australia using a ultraviolet camera. The camera allowed people to actually look deep into their skin and see what damage has occurred from over sun exposure. The video also shows just what your skin looks like with a layer of sunscreen on it, which looks actually pretty rad when you can truly see the effect sunscreen has. So, check out this video folks! AND apply lots of sunscreen to your sexy bodies, while also lending a helping hand to your boyfriends, hubbys or just some hot strangers who need a good rub down. When using NIVEA products don’t forget to check the label and use only as directed!

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.

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.

The one thing that I love about living in Brisbane is the fact that I can continue to discover new boutiques and places to shop.
Mombasa Rose is a E-boutique based in Brisbane set on giving you the hottest trends straight to your doorstep. They recently contacted me in hopes of collaborating and I was more than happy to work with such an amazing e-boutique!
Mombasa Rose sent me this chic little tartan playsuit which I decided to style with some leather, denim, and leopard heels. I love the mixed print combination of tartan and leopard. I think it brings an outfit together with something extra special and unique. To finish this outfit off I threw on a chunky gold necklace.
Mombasa Rose will be featuring an exclusive interview with me on their blog along with some of the photos I took in their playsuit plus one other amazing piece that will be revealed next week. So head on over to their blog to check it out!

So needless to say, I am obsessed with Alexander Wang. I got this amazing “parental advisory” muscle tank at 50% off which basically made it one of the better purchases I have ever made. What makes it even better is that is only one of the items I got at yet another unbelievable Calexico sale. You will be seeing my other purchases very soon.
Usually when I think of leatherette track pants, the word “comfortable” doesn’t immediately come to mind but these pants are seriously amazing. I could wear them as sweats around the house if my lounge wear took a turn for the worst. They are super chic and easy to translate from day to night.
You can purchase them from the amazing St. Frock in Sydney, Australia.
 I have been completely MIA lately and thats because my schedule and life have been beyond hectic. But I promise that it will all be worth it because the relaunch of Katie Eve is going to completely rock everyone’s world.
I have never been as proud of anything as I am of the work I have done for the relaunch of my blog. This new website is my baby and I hope that everyone will love it just as much as I do. In celebration of the relaunch of Katie Eve, I will be doing a series of give aways. Tune into my Instagram feed to find out more details about the giveaways and of course the launch date of the new Katie Eve!

So I am finally done with the first semester of my masters degree and boy, do I feel amazing. I have been doing nothing but working and writing papers for the last three weeks. No fun! BUT although I have been miserably writing papers for what seems like forever, I did received some goodies from my amazing friends at St. Frock in Sydney, making everything seem a little brighter. They never cease to put a smile on my face with their clothing! This biker jacket as been my go to ever since it showed up on my doorstep. The shoulder details are unreal and its PERFECT for the cold weather that has finally come to Brisbane.
Also, Meet Cornelius! He’s the new edition to my family. Cornelius is a baby English Bulldog. He loves a good cuddle and very longs naps (like 4 hours). He sleeps most of the day. I wanted to have this little pup with me in my photos cause leather jackets just look that much better with a feisty bulldog.

The Final Katie Eve X Beginning Boutique Shoot

This is the last outfit post I did with the amazing girls at Beginning Boutique. Floral prints are one of my favorite this year and when I saw this adorable playsuit I knew I had to wear it. Another style staple that I always have in my life is a good black fedora. This was one at the BB office that really stood out to me.
