A little impromptu shoot I did with Wes while out at Bronte pool. So simple yet I love this series of images (if I say so myself) which I think is a good indicator that I’m doing what I love. After a series of unfortunate events with work that got and me down and down again I love that what I truely love doing is creating content and producing work I’m proud of with my team, a team of two. Wes and I. Hahahah.

In a world where everything you do has to be done because you’re paid for it it’s nice to step back and do something you’re not paid for a remember why you started in the first place, decide if you still love doing it or not. If you do, keep going!! If you don’t, find something else you’re good at and start that. It’s never too late to start a new career.

The highlight of the trip was going to Villa Del Balbianello in Lenno, it’s the heavily manicured gardens you see in my midi length floral dress… highly recommend! Also, the best way to see the lake is from the lake – take the ferry or if you’re lucky enough get a boat!

This place is a dream and everywhere is a photo opportunity not to be missed.

Look 2:

Pretty Little Thing Hollie Black Metallic Biker Jacket | Cilla Basic Jersey Flare Leg Jumpsuit | Naye Black Dragon Detail Choker | Feenga Gold Hexagon Frame Sunglasses | Gebriel Black Ring Zip Sock Boots


I’m a big fan of versatility and a jacket that I can wear day to night and to look completely different from the beginning of the day to the end is a jacket I can get on board with. For my lunch time stroll by the beach I wore the biker with my denim skirt, cropped tee and studded boots with the sleeves bunched up at the elbows. I transitioned this rock/ grunge look into dinner by changing into a jersey flared jumpsuit, belted it, threw on boot heels and made it hella dope by adding a dragon choker. I wore the jacket as a cape because that’s just what bloggers do. You should try it some time.

Both of these looks came from Pretty Little Thing a website which I am obsessing over right now because of how many styles they have available that are on point and affordable. So check them out for your next wardrobe haul.

My Favourite Bomber Jacket

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-stussy Stussy Puffer Bomber Jacket | Quay Muse Fade Sunglasses | Kendall + Kylie Shiloh Slides | Topshop Denim Lace Up Skirt


I’ve been living in this bomber ever since I got it – I’ve never been cold wearing this thing!! It’s been a lifesaver because it’s been getting cold and frankly I do not want any part of it.

I shot this last week at a staycation at The Primus Hotel in Sydney but I’ll be doing a separate post to that. This is just a weekend casual snapshot of what I was wearing.

Sometimes bikinis can get a little bit same-same so I was so excited when I saw this cute little number. It’s so me! I love the vintage biker U.S.A print and then it’s been sliced up and lace up, even better! I’m all about different styles of bikinis that aren’t too mental with their tan lines haha so if you see anything please let me know!

What to do in Caye Caulker

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki1 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki2 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki3 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki4 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-belize-contiki5 Earlier this year I got the amazing opportunity to travel to Caye Caulker with Contiki so I’m gonna share with you a couple things about the place if you’re looking to visit this little island. Which I highly recommend you do before it becomes too crowded by tourists!

How to get there:
It’s just a short 45 minute boat ride from the main city of Belize. Once you pull up to the wharf you’re met with an endless supply of palm trees in a row, a haven of colour and the bluest and warmest waters you can find.

How to get around:
To get to your hotel or villa from the wharf you’ll find a golf cart taxi to take you to where you need to go – won’t be long at all because you drive from one end of the island to the other in about 20 minutes, you just don’t want to drag your luggage through the sand. After this I recommend hiring push bikes for your stay or golf carts if you’re not into the peddling. Getting around is so easy because there’s really only one main road but if you’re not inclined to driving or cycling it’s easy enough to get around on foot.

What to do:
- Get a small boat to take you out snorkelling (or diving) to swim in the second biggest coral reef in the world! Second only to The Great Barrier Reef in Queensland. If you can go out to ‘shark alley’ you’ll find yourself in a sea on rays and toothless sharks!! it was the most surreal and amazing moment of my whole life. A bucket list moment!

- Go on foot at night restaurant and bar hopping between all of their delicious places to eat and drink. Everywhere is so friendly and accommodating.

- Jump on a sunset yacht ride

- Buy some souvenirs and support the locals

- Explore the colourful houses and swim at the beach

Thank you to Contiki for this amazing experience! I would have never known such a place exists! Make sure you check out the video at the bottom of the post.

And so ends another week of gorgeous, golden winter sun in Sydney. I’m loving gold statement items like these sunglasses and earrings to pop next to the lurex in this knit crop top. A casual and dressy outfit for a day and night out on a Friday.

I always get DMs and comments asking about the best places to shop in Sydney usually from people who are visiting or who have recently moved here – one of my personal favourite places to kit out a new wardrobe is Glue Store. Their range of awesome sports brands from Adidas Originals and Nike Sportswear next to international brands like Calvin Klein mixed with their Aussie labels like Mink Pink and A Brand are great to browse through and find a super affordable outfit which is great for uni, work or going out.

I’m usually a very casual dresser so I’m all about the denims and tees so this is my go-to shop for when I want a cool printed logo, stripe tee or jumper to go back with my denims. Also I love their sneakers and watch collection!!

Their biggest store is the one in Central and I recommend that one if you want the best range.
