What I Wore: Hey, Lover

3rd August, 2019

Sometimes you have to let your outerwear do all the talking and that’s exactly the case with this coat by Lover. I am all about a statement coat and the amazing checked print on this trench is the kind of piece that doesn’t require much else—it’s strong enough to hold its own. I also love the midi length as it’s got a polished feels, whilst the flared sleeves lend a playful touch to the overall silhouette. I could easily pop this on over anything and walk out the door without missing a beat. And that’s something that I look for when it comes to anything I own—versatility is key when it comes to a making something truly wearable. Plus I just have a soft spot for a coat that’s striking and a little bit different.

There’s no point in having the rest of your outfit competing when it comes to statement pieces so I opted to keep my accessories quite minimalist. Simple and sleek is best when wearing anything that’s a little bit bold. I wore black Giuseppi Zanotti strappy heels to add a dressy touch and my fave new piece, a quilted Chanel backpack. I love the balance of wearing something that’s quite utilitarian such as a backpack paired with pieces that are a little extra such as a patterned coat and cat eye sunglasses.

My week on Instagram

28th July, 2019

It was all about winter looks this week on Instagram. One of my go-to staples during the cooler months is a gorgeous knit and this week was no exception. The Zimmermann jumper below has been on high rotation and adds a feminine element to a casual look with it soft pink hue and sweet oversized bows. But I’m also all about a beautiful trench, and this checked coat by Lover is one way to add a chic touch to any outfit. It’s the perfect topper—adding a statement feature to an ensemble whilst being versatile enough to go from off duty to work and event without missing a beat.

What I Wore: David Jones AW19 ‘The Art of Living’ launch

9th February, 2019

As a long time attendee of David Jones’ incredible events I was so excited to attend their new season launch on location in Tasmania. The event that took place over two days was hosted at the Museum of New and Old Art (MONA) and included being able to get up close and personal with David Jones’ fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands.

I wore this outfit to lunch on the first day where we were invited to a dine at MONA’s The Source restaurant. The menu on the day was designed by MONA’s Chef Vince Trim which showcased a lot of David Jones’ Tasmanian suppliers local providores, winemakers and distillers. In one word: amazing. The food and location was just next-level.

I wanted to go for something quite feminine with my look so I decided on a floral top and skirt by Lover. I loved the understated Forget Me Not flower print but also the finishing touches such as the subtle split in the skirt and the ruffles and button detail.

Sticking with the colour scheme of the dress, I opted for a few gold accessories to pick up the yellow flowers in the print and my longtime favourite Gucci heels and cat eye sunglasses by Lucy Folk fit the bill. A summer outfit wouldn’t be complete without my current favourite Poolside bag—it’s just the right texture and vibe for such an event.

What I Wore: Coffee Date

20th October, 2016

There’s nothing I love more than catching up for coffee with a girlfriend so it was lovely to get back into the swing of things and catch up with Nadia. I’ve been busy with Grace and Sophia recently and comfort has been key so it was nice to be able to dress up for a little time out.

I love an all white look and the beautiful spring weather allowed me to finally wear the above Lover dress. I particularly love the sleeve detail which gives it a beautiful finishing touch. As the dress is quite feminine my favourite Adidas Superstars were the perfect way to ground the outfit a little and also give the look a bit  more of a relaxed vibe. I think pairing dresses with sneakers has been a great way to really take an otherwise quite formal look in a different direction and I will definitely be trying this combination again over the new few months.

What I Wore: The Blues

9th June, 2016




The gorgeous colour of this Lover dress was the first thing that drew me to it. The blue is just so vivid. The look is quite demure with the lace detail and also the midi length skirt and elbow length sleeves so I wanted to give it a bit of edge with my caged Gianvito Rossi heels. I decided to go for contrasting shades with my accessories so I added a pop of pink with my pink The Daily Edited clutch and Christian Paul watch. Sometimes the most unexpected colour pairings make for a striking look – try it yourself today!

What I Wore: Lover & Lace

31st May, 2016


Kate Waterhouse Stylesnooperdan White 1

Lover always do really beautiful work with lace and this dress is no exception. The strapless silhouette is great for a dressy lunch or a special date night dinner and I love the breezy look the white overlay gives the dress. I’ve kept the look quite monochrome with my favourite black Aquazurra heels, Preen sunglasses and a simple black clutch by The Daily Edited . With a dress like this its better to keep everything understated in order to let the dress do the talking.

What I Wore: Grey days

12th May, 2016


Kate Waterhouse Stylesnooperdan Grey 2

You don’t necessarily need 50 shades of grey in your wardrobe, sometimes you only need to look to one: the ever versatile grey marle. This grey Lover dress is elevated to a more polished look with the braiding around the shoulders and waist and the flared skirt. It’s also a great dress to accommodate my growing bump. As the dress is quite a subdued colour I’ve added fun accessories such as my cat-eye Preen sunglasses and Gianvito Rossi heels

What I Wore: Summer Days

9th December, 2015


I love a little playsuit for summer. Not only is it really comfortable, it’s a really easy outfit option – just pop it on and you’re good to go. I’ve teamed it with some white Adidas sneakers which are always a favourite of mine for a casual day. If I’m heading out and about I’ll always bring a big beach bag to carry all my essentials and a sun hat is a must. I love the boater style hat which is ideal for keeping the sun off my face but is also great for dressing up an outfit.

Date with Kate, Fashion


29th November, 2015

Lunch with Jesinta Campbell at Cured & Cultured Bar, Bennelong.

Jesinta Campbell is a model, television host and winner of the 2010 Miss Universe Australia title. The 24-year-old is engaged to Lance “Buddy” Franklin of the Sydney Swans. She talked to me about her wedding plans, the difficulties she and Franklin have faced in the past year amid reports he has been affected by mental-health issues, and her role as an ambassador for hair-product maker Joico’s “Joi of Giving” campaign.

I keep reading headlines that you’re getting married in December. Is that not true?

No. Not true at all! [Laughs] We’ve actually never set a date for the wedding. We weren’t ever going to get married this year. So, it’s quite funny that everyone thinks that we are. I remember getting off a plane and reading, “Jesinta gets married in six weeks.” I thought to myself, “Shit. I’ve got to get my dress. I’ve got to get guest list.” We always wanted a long engagement and to enjoy it. There has never been any rush for us. And it’s not really going to be a big affair anyway. It’s going to be quite intimate.

Can you give away any wedding plans? 

Just something really small and intimate. We’re both really close with our families so; it’s going to be quite a small affair. I always keep reading everywhere that it’s going to be so lavish and glamorous and there’s going to be like an A list, like star-studded [event] and I’m like, “We don’t even have famous friends. What is this?” [Laughs]. It’s just going to be really, really simple and it’s just about celebrating us, our love and our families.

Buddy has had a tough year, how is he going? 

He’s good. We just take each day as it comes. It has been really difficult. I’ve continued working throughout the entire process, which has taken its toll on me. I’m quite exhausted from it all. I think the hardest thing with all of it is that it’s being played out really publicly.

It must be hard having it all played out publicly.

Yes, that’s the hardest thing. This is something that has required a lot of privacy and unfortunately, we haven’t really been granted that. I think, looking back on it, yes, it has hindered his recovery and his well-being and my well-being too and it’s just really sad that we weren’t given the respect that was needed for it. I think what people fail to realise sometimes is, yes, he is a sports star and yes, I’m doing whatever it is that I’m doing, but we’re human beings and you’re playing with two people’s lives here. It’s really delicate and really fragile and I think people just need to be really wary of that… People have been a little bit nasty too. There have been some people in the media that have just said some really incredibly nasty and hurtful things that are just so left of field and so wrong in this day and age.

How do you keep strong while being such a pillar of support?

I think I’m probably stronger in the public eye than I am behind closed doors. It has definitely been really hard. But my family has definitely been a great thing for me to be able to lean on. I’ve been talking to lots of people and that’s really important as well, not to bottle it up. I’m definitely stronger in the public. There has been a lot of times that I’ve had my full hair and makeup done and I’ve had to go and get it touched up because I’ve been in tears on the way to work. But, you’ve just got to keep going. That’s unfortunately, the way that it is. You’ve just got to do what you’ve got to do and the best way you can as well. You can’t always choose the cards you’re dealt with in life and you’ve just got to do what you can with the cards that are in your hands.

Has Buddy decided to play next year?

Yes. Buddy is playing next year. He is back into training, which is fantastic. He is looking really fit and strong, which is great. We actually have been training a little bit together and I went for a run with him the other day. It was so hard because his one step is about five of mine! [Laughs]

How do you stay fit?

For me, fitness is about nutrition, your exercise and also to sleep and relaxation as well. So when I talk about fitness, I think, it’s a whole package. It’s my job at the end of the day.

What’s next for you? 

I’m obviously continuing my relationship with David Jones next year, which is really exciting for me. I’m just taking every day as it comes and they’ve been an amazing company to work for. And then, I’m launching a shop on my website at the end of this year, which will be really exciting.

What are your plans for Christmas?

Christmas is all about family. We actually don’t give presents within our family. We donate whatever we would spend on each other for presents to charity.

Tell me about your role with Starlight and JOICO.

This is the second year I’ve signed up with JOICO. It’s all about granting wishes to kids over Christmas and it’s through the Starlight Foundation.

What makes you so passionate about the kids and this cause?

Children are so innocent. They’ve done nothing wrong. They don’t deserve to be [sick]. I think, especially for someone like me, who is in such a privileged position, it’s so important to give back to them and just to hear their stories.

How can people get involved?

They can just buy the Christmas gift packs online and a percentage of that goes towards the Starlight Foundation or you can make a direct donation.

Where do you see yourself in five years time?

In five years’ time, I’d definitely like to be more in charge of my business and be seen as a businesswoman. At the moment, whenever I see my little bio it’s like TV presenter, model, personality, celebrity. But, I’m glad to be seen as a businesswoman. I think that’s really important. I’m still young. I’m only 24. I feel like I’ve got a long way to go.

The trend towards ultra feminine dressing is perfect for race day outfits. I wanted to accessorise with something a little different so I opted for this floral headband which provided a great contrast to the structured asymmetrical neckline on the dress. Lace up heels are one of the great shoe trends to come out this spring/summer and they’re the ideal finishing touch to this outfit.
