ALL THINGS DENIM


The all-American classic - denim - is definitely no longer confined to a pair of jeans. From jackets, vests, overalls, dresses to boyfriends shorts...denim is everywhere this season.

This denim vest is in my wardrobe since high school, it was actually a denim jacket but i was in a very DIY mood that day and so, i cut the sleeves et voilá, my denim jacket was transformed into a denim vest. I know, i know, a super simple DIY, i really have to improve my "do it yourself" skills ;) In case you didn't know yet, my grandparents were a tailor and a seamstress and i already had a few lessons on a sewing machine and i guess it has to be on the genes because i was pretty good at actually. Really want to learn more whenever i have the chance. 

Today's afternoon was spent with my mom, on a mom-daughter time, which was such wonderful day in an utterly relaxed look, this is the "casual-est" i can get. And tomorrow it's my mom's birthday, so i took her on a shopping spree to see what she liked and then, in a very sneaky moment i purchased what she loved the most. Precious moments with mom a.k.a. Director of Operations (this video's idea is phenomenal, don't you think? Moms are really the best!), who is the best mom in the world as your mamma is yours! ♥ Sending you lots of love sweethearts! xx

It's such a great way to share more with beauties and to give you daily updates. These Instakatefp selection is definitely more about #foodie, which well, is a big part of our lives. As you know My Love a.k.a Chef Pimpão had such a big passion about food and makes wonderful dishes, so we're actually thinking about creating a new feature on Katefp with some of our favorite recipes. What do you think about the idea, would you like it?

Buttery scones, jam, toasts, cappuccino with our friends / Planning a dream trip in the upcoming months to the city of angels: L.A.

Too much cuteness going on with these two! ;D
Adorable sunny mornings and places at our town / Give me a bowl filled of natural yoghurt with honey, flax, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, almonds, nuts, goji berries, raisins...and i'm a happy gal. Healthy and delicious!

TIME


Happy Easter to all of you our lovelies! We wish you a blessed Easter sunday next to the people you love the most. And so sorry again about the delay of the article but it happen that this week was my Mom who was sick in the hospital, thankfully now she's well and already recovering in home but that's why the articles weren't daily. We're praying that now everything will be ok and we'll be able to publish everyday as usual. What really matters is that my beloved Mom is getting so much better, that was truly the best news that we had this Easter. 

About today's title...Time. Time is so precious, we should really make the best of our time. Sometimes i wish that we had forty eight hours instead of twenty four hours a day in order to be able to do even more and more but you know what, probably we would end doing exactly the same in forty eight hours. Punctuality is one of my rules, i consider it a way of being respectful not only to others but also to ourselves and so i always try to keep on time. And i special love to keep on time with the elegance of the timeless  Daniel Wellington watches. Here i'm wearing the Classic Sheffield (from the Men section, you can also expect a His look featuring My Love who photographed these images), isn't it absolutely divine? Daniel Wellington watches are so polished and refined, definitely a must-have. Right now i'm coveting The Grace Collection that will be available on May, stunning.

As we have the most wonderful readers in the all world we have a special surprise for you, enjoy a 15% discount in every purchase at Daniel Wellington webshop by using the code "DW-katefp" till April 30. Sending you lots of love! xx

MUSIC FESTIVAL SEASON


Festival season is on, and so it is Festival Fashion! We selected a couple of looks (that you can find on our Looks section) that we hope to inspire you in this music Festival season. Tell us, what's your favorite and what are going to wear on the next music Festival? 

We missed Coachella this year, but maybe next year we'll be there too, it's for sure one the greatest music festivals of the year and Fashion talking is simply amazing, on an all another level. Meanwhile, there is Rock in Rio which we're going to attend it, yay, and perhaps Optimus Alive (it was so, but so awesome to see Justice live two years ago). 

So stay tuned lovelies, for this and so much more because some really cool projects and trips are coming on its way! Can't wait to share more with you! Enjoy your day! xx

LA DOLCE VITA


Five days without writing you lovelies seems forever, you can't believe how much we missed you, but now that i'm completely recovered, thank God, we promise you the usual daily articles. And we promised on monday that you'll had a new look on Katefp this week and here it is! A look very Italy, Dolce&Gabbana inspired...that hopefully it will take us on a special trip. It would be such a dream come true to fly to Rome and to join the most amazing event with the incredible STYLIGHT and Fabi team. We believe that dreams really come true...specially when we truly believe it inside our hearts and don't only just follow our dreams but chase them. 

Life is the most precious gift, a miracle, that we all should appreciate and value to the most. If sometimes our days are spent complaining it happens that when we're sick, for example, we tend to appreciate life even more. When we have health and love we have it all. It really is a cliche but money doesn't bring happiness, or doesn't buy health or love so, please, live your days to the fullest and smile. Keep on smiling everyday! Life is sweet, even with their ups and downs, it makes part of the lessons that we all have to learn, it is 'La Dolce Vita'. 

Enjoy your sunday beauties and hope you'll enjoy today's outfit, specially photographed by My Love who always does a brilliant work, yesterday we had so much fun doing these couple of pictures that we think you can see through them! Lots of love, baci! xx
