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

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.

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.

Tianna Murkins Dress | Colette Hayman necklace worn as belt | Colette Hayman Bag | Wittner Banin Sneakers | Quay Eyewear


As an alumni of FBI Fashion College,I was sooo excited that I finally get to collaborate with their up and coming fashion design students who have made some truely amazing and beautiful designs. Here I am wearing a dress designed by Tianna Murkins. I love the rose gold fabric which has a dobby stripe through the fabric. She’s cut the pieces of the dress so that they are a-symmetrical and highlight the neckline and catch the light in so many ways, small details which are really the eye of a good designer.

This is only one of the pieces of her collection, not to mention the many other designers that will be on show at Castle Towers from October 5th until October 17th… so if you’re interested in seeing what the Future of Fashion will be, please go check it out!

One day in London with Colette by Colette Hayman

I came to visit my best friend in London right after I spent a week in the Greek islands and definitely got the London treatment of hot subway rides, unsolicited rain, double decker bus rides, flowers everywhere (even if they’re fake), lots of food and improvising with outfits after travelling with the same clothes for 5 weeks.

In this post I’m wearing the same playsuit in both outfits, one was layered under a mesh tee and a denim mini, the other under a chambray shirt around my waist ready to pop over when the temperature drops (which it did!) All the while wearing the same accessories from Colette by Colette Hayman just to show how to mix and match your wardrobe whether you’re travelling or not because you don’t need to have a lot to make cute outfits, just the perfect bag and killer accessories.

What To Do In Sicily

My boyfriend and I flew into Sicily a couple weeks ago, rented an Audi convertible and cruised the small island off Italy which turned out to be a whole lot bigger than I thought! Below are a couple tips on what to do and how to get around the island:

Places to visit:

fashion-and-sounds fashion-and-sounds fashion-and-sounds fashion-and-sounds 1. Aegadian Islands, these are actually three little islands off the west coast of Sicily. I wanted to visit all of them but only got a chance to do a day trip to the main one, Favignana. We rented bikes for 5 euros (they’ll try rip you off so say you’ll only do 5) and cruised the island all day. Warning: it was HOT and it can be hard in the middle of the day at 30 degrees, if you ride a scooter I recommend you do that instead as the island is quite big and you’ll see more quicker and sweat less – unless you want to sweat! Personally my favourite beach was Cala Azzurra. My boyfriend’s was Blue Marino.

How to get there: catch a ferry from Trapani (where we stayed) this is a port city with great restaurants in the town. Book your ferry beforehand as they get full if you just rock up in the morning.

fashion-and-sounds 2. Isola Bella (Taormina), A gorgeous little island you can walk to from the main island. Isola Bella actually has a little museum on it you can check out for 4 euros or so, from far away you can’t tell there’s anything on it! The museum (was a house) is built into the rock!

We did an excurisone and snorkelled a few spots around the island from Giardini Naxos. The best way to see it!

fashion-and-sounds fashion-and-sounds Taormina the town itself wasn’t as magical as everyone hyped it up to be. It was crazy full of tourists and super windy. If you go on the first Sunday of the month it’s free entry to the ancient theatre which is awesome, but I don’t think I would have wanted to pay 20 euro for entry so we got lucky.

jessie-khoo-sicily fashion-and-sounds fashionandsounds 3. Scala Dei Turchi, You only really need a half or one day at this amazing spot – either early in the morning or late in the arvo, or both which is what we did. Middle of the day to sunset the tourists are out hard and heavy. Try stay one night in the Scala Dei Turchi resort which is literally opposite the entry and walk to the amazing natural white rock ‘stairs’. I loved this spot of Sicily because the rocks were so nice compared to the usual spikey, painful rocks it usually has on it’s coastline.

You’ll have to drive up the mountain if you want any food though as there’s not much else around.

fashion-and-sounds fashion-and-sounds fashion-and-sounds fashion-and-sounds 4. Ortigia, This is gorgeous little town with a rich heritage and possibly the best food I had while in Sicily. Just a stone throw away was Syracusa I liked this place for the cats and how instagrammable it all was. The beaches in the actual town weren’t amazing as it’s all on rocks (very, very aggressive rocks) so we strolled into Syracusa and rented day beds on the beach.

jessie-khoo-sicily jessie-khoo-sicily 5. Laghetti Di Marinello, we only passed through this place but the beach should be considered as one of the natural wonders of the world… it’s a large sandy finger out of the island which looks small but is HUGE. I felt like we walked over a kilometre to get to the beach itself but it was worth it! If we had more time and energy I would have loved to try trek to the very tip, maybe catch a boat as it was massive and the water was so perfect.

Hot Tips:

1. Hire a car, it’s really the only way to get around but Sicily in summer is too hot to drive with the top down in a convertible, and in our case more often than not we had luggage in the boot (trunk) so we couldn’t even put the top down if we wanted to. So don’t waste your money on an a3!

2. Avoid staying right in the main cities as they’re often very crowded, the accomodation is unnecessarily expensive, it’s hard to park in and full of tourists.

3. The autostrata is crazy, the limit is 130kph and Sicilian drivers are ruthless. They’ll drive on the incoming traffic lane to overtake you and this is normal so don’t be alarmed. Just stick to the right side of the road and you’ll get used to it in a couple days.

I did a little 3 day staycation at the gorgeous boutique Primus Hotel right in the heart of the city… and it was gorgeous! Greeted with valet parking and a luxury suite which feels like the size of a small apartment, it was warm, inviting and definitely living in luxury.

These outfit photos were taken on the sun soaked rooftop which I can’t wait to come back and visit in summer because they’ll have a fully decked out bar and an amazing pool to laze about in.

Waking up to a breakfast buffet was definitely a treat as well as coming back at 5pm for a cheeky cocktail and charcuterie board in their open, spacious ground level bar. This is definitely a gorgeous place to stay if you’re looking at being right in the heart of the city!

My Favourite Bomber Jacket

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.
