Triangl Famous Velvet Bikini – worth it?

triangl-famous triangl-famous triangl-famous Triangl Famous Velvet Bikini


Everytime I post a blog about Triangl Bikinis I get a lot of readers because I think they want to know my opinion on the style. These ones are gorgeous – the blue is VERY brilliant and looks amazing on, if you’re not a super bright bikini wearer this is probably not for you, but if you are… you’ll love these!

The fit is always amazing, I’m wearing a medium in bottoms and small in the top. The cheeky cut bottom is soo much better (imo) than the full coverage but I guess it’s all dependant on your personal style! I’ve noticed they have now high cut bikini bottoms so I definitely need to get myself a pair of them because those styles/ cuts suit me better than straight across the hips styles like these… I have wide hips! Let me know if you want me to get a pair of those to review.

Ultimately, for the price of bikinis these days… $97 is worth it… I don’t see the fabric or quality of this bikini getting ruined anytime soon and there’s so much good support and it’s super flattering.

Do you prefer hipster or high cut?

Coachella Dreaming

If you’re like me you woke up on Saturday morning to an influx of glitter, short shorts, maxi dresses, braids, denim, crochet and wanderlust over everybody at Palm Springs and Coachella. I was so inspired by the scenery I told Wes we should try shoot at this cactus location I found a few months back, I was half joking but Wes being Wes he was in the area and always keen as usual! What a legend!

So I put my very last minute “Coachella” outfit together and we somehow made it work. I even fooled people on instagram and tagged Palm Springs even though I made it pretty clear in my caption that I wasn’t at Coachella haha.

I did however spend over and hour last night watching Beyonce’s live stream performance on YouTube and I felt like I was there, in the comfort of my own home haha. LOVED IT! What an imaginative and original performance. She’s truely one of the best performers out there, if not the best.

Who wore your favourite outfit at Coachella? I want to do a round up of my favourite looks!

Should you wear a belt bag?

The belt bag, fanny pack, bum bag, whatever you may wanna call it is back, baby! But for how long? Who really knows, it’s like bitcoin… gonna be around forever but won’t always be in it’s peak… but I’d say it’s just about to hit it’s peak veeeryyyy soon with Coachella around the corner and numerous other festivals and hands free events coming up.

I’m going to admit that it’s not something my boyfriend has adapted to much but he also doesn’t like flares so I take his opinion with a grain of salt… and in this day and age we shouldn’t be dressing for boys, we should dress for ourselves and what makes us happy. And what makes me happiest. And what makes me happy is an awesome bag that fits my iphone and keys and if you’re going away for a weekend or something just take the weekender with you too!

Check yo’self

Sometimes you’ve just gotta run around chasing sunflowers and feeling cute in check pants and a pink jacket. If you haven’t noticed yet… checkered pants are all the rage! I went for a monotone kind of look with the blushes, whites and beige so the outfit wasn’t too ‘loud’ with anything too contrasty ie. if you were to wear a black boot and black jacket. If you want to look cute, yet subtle, but mainly cute try an outfit of all similar tones like this one. Makes wearing light coloured and printed pants more wearable.

Oh and these sunnies are from Sloane and I have a cheeky 40% discount for you the code is JESSIE40 – I’m loving their new slim line style.

The perfect little tanning bikini – the strapless design won’t give you over the shoulder tan lines and if you decide to sit out in the sun just undo the sleeve straps for the perfect bandeau!

Seafolly Flashback Range

flashback-red-bikini flashback-red-bikini flashback-red-bikini Jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-seafolly3 Jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-seafolly4 Seafolly Tube Bandeau TopSeafolly High Waisted Rio Pants | Jolie and Deen Marin Earrings | Elizabeth and James Henly Hexagon Sunglasses


So one of my favourite Aussie swimwear labels listened to you guys, they designed a range that is high cut, high rise and cheeky! Seafolly have created a super bright, on-trend range that channels the inner 80s in us. I’ve been wearing super cheeky cut bikini bottoms for a few summers now and I think that this range is a gorgeous gateway if you’re looking at moving into their cheeky cut bottom but don’t necessarily want to want a g-string cut just yet!

The high-rise side will make your legs look longer (something I definitely need standing at 165cm tall! and if you have a long torso like I do then the high waisted shape will be supr flattering as well. I chose red because I love the vibrancy but they have black if you’re more inclined.

I recommend to go up a size. I’m wearing a 12, I usually wear 10 in bikinis.

one of my favourite venues in Sydney

People visiting Sydney always ask me: where they should go to eat, where can they go to take pics, where is cute, where’s delicious and as much as I can recommend 1000 different venues one I can always say confidently is Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel. Although it’s a hotel, I’ve never stayed here but I’ve been here countless times to sit in the sunshine, look out onto the water, enjoy the views, the serenity, the music and enjoy their seafood and huge menu. Their nautical themed restaurant and bars are gorgeous like a holiday beach house… so I always feel like I’m on a little vacay 30 minutes away :)

Kopper and Zink Bikini

Sometimes getting out of town to explore new inspiration is the right thing to do. Believe it or not but this is Wes and I’s first swim shoot this summer! I think it’s partly because we were both away over Christmas and New Year’s and the fact that I personally haven’t been super motivated to shoot swim because I haven’t been my fittest.

Buuuuttt sometime’s it’s good to force yourself to do what you love and just cover up the pizza belly with a one piece hahah. I’m actually super obsessed with this gorgeous one-piece from Kopper and Zink. The detail is gorgeous and the cut and colour is perfect. It’s not too cheeky as it doesn’t come up too high on the sides and not too conservative, I think it’s a perfect in between if that’s what you’re looking for.
