With Summer right around the corner we’re heading closer and closer to festival season! In turn meaning celebration – glitter – fun – music and some pretty outrageous and fabulous fashion. The festival trend is everywhere at the moment and I think we should make the most of the time where it is socially acceptable to wear glitter – no questions asked.
This shoot with the gorgeous Lou brings together a truly simple summer boho festival feel that is super wearable, casual and fun. I can clearly see how now calling Byron Bay my home has influenced my own style and my ‘likes’ as a stylist being back in Sydney; luckily Lou’s personal style is quite ‘Byron boho’ making her perfect to collab with.
So excited for Summer to come and see everyone having fun with fashion and most importantly taking risks! Show off who you are and what you love!
This year, I was lucky enough to escape the Australian Winter and venture off to Europe for six weeks. This trip was all about exploring – learning – freedom – eating – drinking & spending time with the people I love. These are a few of my favourite happy snaps from the trip which I hope to share and spread that European love.
ALICANTE – SPAIN
MYKONOS – GREECE
SANTORINI – GREECE
Well, thats one thing ticked off my bucket list – a sunrise photoshoot. It was an absolutely breathtaking morning when my friend Lou and I decided to head out to Curl Curl beach bright and early on a Saturday.
For this shoot, I really wanted to capture who Lou was, bring out her individuality, her style, her loves, her personality – the beach was the perfect setting for this. In our ever-changing world of trends, technology, celebrities etc we often loose sight of whats real to us. We forget the beauty in our individuality, in our own style.
I hope you enjoy the photos and start thinking about what your style is. Special thanks to Lou for modelling and to Ally who assisted with the shoot.

Tropical, bright shades are always the go for perfect Summer style.
This colour combination of bright and black is definitely a great way to have a mix of two diverse styles.
These eye shades are my absolute summer essentials, especially for my colour eyes which are hazel/green. So if any of you have the same you should have a palette with these colours because they complement and really make green eyes pop.
Maybelline eyeliner (my favourite)
My own rings
MAC velvet teddy lipstick
Victorias Secret Body Shimmer
Its time to bring out your inner wild side and try out some of these enchanting, strong, stand out looks! Why not give them a go! Hope you have as much fun looking at the photos as I did shooting them with my fabulous friend Carolina. Enjoy!
Love Empire Eve xoxo
