-1

Women who aren’t afraid to shirk convention earn the respect of Team Zoe pretty much instantly, which is why we’re massive fans of Kate Brien and her unique style blog. View From The Topp quite literally changed our perspective through its beautifully art-directed and perfectly styled daily outfit images that Kate shoots by looking down at her feet. We caught up with the talented stylist to find out what she can’t live without, and let her takeover our Instagram account for the day.

Kate's Essentials

"While I’m low maintenance when it comes to hair, the one product I can’t live without is Rodin’s Olio Lusso Hair Oil.  I just put a little bit at the ends of my wet hair when I get out of the shower and it gives it that beachy, piecey look."
