We’re delighted to be chatting with the oh so chic girl behind With Love From Kat! This perfectly polished style blog is where Kat Tanita shares her love of fashion, beauty and decor, as well as providing a fabulous glimpse into her everyday life in New York City. Join us as we discover more about her inspirations, beauty secrets and style advice…
What motivated you to start your blog?
After graduating from college with a degree in design I started to miss the creative outlet my classes provided. I started my blog as a way to document the things I love and 3 years later it’s my full time job!
How does the city you live in inspire your day-to-day fashion?
I love seeing chic girls in the street and admiring the beautiful store windows around the city. Living in NYC has pushed me to be more fashion forward and take risks!
Who are your style icons?
Jackie Kennedy, my mom, and Miranda Kerr.
Name one piece every woman should have in her wardrobe and why?
It’s hard to name one! Black skinny jeans – because they can dressed up or down. I live in them!
What items do you always carry in your handbag?
Wallet, cellphone, planner, Mac lipgloss in C-Thru, antibacterial stuff for when I take the subway, and Celine sunglasses.
What is the best beauty trick you’ve ever learned?
Foundation!!! I didn’t start using it until a few months ago – it is life changing. I use Giorgio Armani foundation #6.5.
Tell us…what is something not many people know about you?
I can wiggle my ears! It’s a super random inherited trait from my mom! :)
What are your favourite prints or colors to mix? Do you have any tips?
I love stripes, neutrals, paisley! Stripes + leopard print is a really cute combo right now.
When you need a little pick-me-up, how do you add sparkle to your life and feel good?
Flowers, mani/pedis, a spritz of my favorite perfume… CHOCOLATE!
How do you start your day? Do you have a morning routine?
As soon as I wake up I make myself a green smoothie (coconut water, pineapple, raspberries, spinach, almond butter and flax seed.) Then I head to my desk and start tackling the emails and working on projects.
