A new take on Double Denim! I love this denim bag and denim jacket combo it’s so lush. I’m really into a blue and pink colour palette right now so I’m feeling super fresh haha.

Also, I’m obsessed with these Converse Sneakers. They have a bit of a platform which magically makes your legs suuuuper long! I don’t think anyone should be going through their life without a pair of  Converse Sneakers, and if you already have one then get another! and make it platform!!! You won’t regret it.

I also had to pop on these statement earrings because it’s the season to be bright and stand out a little! Let’s get festive and let’s get happy, how can you not be at a time like this!!?

The Dress Kendall Jenner Sold Me

dress-polkadot-black-boots dress-polkadot-black-boots Bec and Bridge Dress | Prada Bag (similar here) | Sol Sana Boots (similar here) | Kookai Jewellery


It’s not often I get sold on clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE clothes and they all make me happy… but I don’t actually get sold on clothes the way I was with this photo here. There’s something so simple yet so sexy about this mini polka dot dress! What I like most is that it’s not ‘black and white’ it’s natural with black dots, a little bit of a more elevated colour way than black and white which can sometimes come across as quite young.

Now… if only I had the legs and body of Victoria’s Secret model, Kendall Jenner!! hahaha

Mink Pink Co-ordination

Channel your inner Cher with this clueless inspired outfit I’ve put together minus the sweater vest and high socks, but I think this is a nice little homage without going full 90s! I love this statement corduroy set. Wear the jacket or skirt separately or together – either way you’re going to turn heads in this shocking pink ensemble.

One of the best things about spring is the transition from jeans to skirt and coats to jackets. Being able to have your legs out without a 24/7 sweat moustache is my favourite time of the year! Haha so take advantage, Sydney-siders!

I can’t believe we stumbled upon this gorgeous little cafe in Manly, it literally made me feel like I was on a vacation from the eastern suburbs of Sydney! With my stripey dress, weekender and backpack next to the grass bar I felt like I was on a tropical getaway. Funny how a little outfit change, an ice latte, driving half and hour up the coast and a fresh set of earrings can perk your mood.

What does it really mean to Be Brave and Free?

jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink Mink Pink Be Brave and Free Denim Jacket | Mink Pink Burleigh Slip Dress | Missguided Cross Body Handbag | Nike Classic Cortez | Kapten and Son Sunglasses


Be brave and free: easier said than done. When was the last time you did something brave? In June 2016 I quit my job and started working for myself, no experience running a business, no idea if I’ll actually make a steady income, no real reason to leave an amazing job designing apart from the fact that I needed to be free. Not everyone is wired to work for themselves. It takes a lot of self-motivation every. single. damn. day. doing something that’s not assigned to you, no deadline, no assistant, nothing but hustle.

I was scared but mostly excited at the thought of not answering to anybody but myself, waking up when I want to, pacing my life how I want to, travelling the world whenever I want to, and now that I do I wouldn’t know how to live life any other way. I attribute this to being brave, not just jumping out of the plane and hoping for the best but by planning, budgeting, working smart, being a good person, and being organised and meticulous.

I’m not telling you to quit your job, but I am telling you you need to be brave and free. Maybe it’s leaving a toxic relationship, moving out of your parent’s house, traveling solo to a new country, asking out that guy or girl, jumping off a cliff into open water while screaming all the way down, committing yourself to a marathon for charity – whatever it is, I promise you if it’s scares you, and it won’t kill you, it will make you a stronger, free-er person.

Absolut Botanik Upcycle

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-absolut-vodka jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-vodka-absolut-botanik jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-vodka-absolut-botanik Shop Tobi Jennifer Blue & White Crop Top jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-vodka-absolut-botanik jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-vodka-absolut-botanik jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-vodka-absolut-botanik Trying new things is one of my favourite things. A lot of people like to stick with what they know and are comfortable with, but I challenge you to try new things as you may be pleasantly surprised from time to time. A new restaurant, a new hair style, a new walking or driving route, a new item on the menu and in this case, a new drink.

So when Alsolut Vodka came out with this new pre-mix flavour by one of my favourite drinks Absolut Botanik, I had to try it: Berry and Lemon… and now I’m hooked! Literally two of my favourite flavours, lemonade and berries! A match made in heaven.

In this post I’ve showcased the lifespan with this new bottle. I’ve taken out to a day in the park, enjoying it as I’m heading to a party with my friends and at the party, and then upclying it (one of my favourite things to do as I try to minimise waste). Then I kept the bottle and used it as a vase for some greenery around the house!

What do you think?! And what will you try out that’s new this week?

Last week I announced that FBI Fashion College students will be showcasing their end of year designs at Castle Towers from October 5th – 17th. If you haven’t seen my Part I of this post, you can find it here.

In this post I am wearing a gorgeous champagne satin slip with embroidered denim jacket made from repurposed denim (which is amazing because I am a huge fan of recycling), designs by the young and talented Emily Parker.

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-hotel-palisade2 Hotel Palisade


I’m a huge fan of a staycation in your own city. There’s nothing like seeing this beautiful town from another point of view, especially when that view is at the top of the town! With only eight rooms in total, Hotel Palisade is truely one of the most unique hotels you’ll ever stay in. There’s no room service or breakfast but it does have one of the most delicious rooftop restaurants I’ve ever been to, Henry Deane. The best part is you don’t have to be a guest at the hotel to visit, I recommend the scallops and froze!

Hotel Palisade is also in prime position for all Uber Eats delivery services (which I may have dabbled in), otherwise you can just stroll down to Barangaroo 10 minutes down the road and dine at any of the restaurants or cafes there as well as tonnes of shopping!

Every single room has a stunning view and the staff are so helpful and passionate about what they do which is always a nice family to be a part of, even if for a night.

So if you’re looking at a unique Sydney hotel experience, you can’t beat Hotel Palisade. You’re right in the city but not in the CBD so it’s never noisy with sirens, cars, or foot traffic. A peaceful getaway in the heart of Sydney everyone should experience at least once.
