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.

I hope everyone’s having an amazing Christmas eve! One more sleep!!! :)

My go-to backpack

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-leather-backpack Processed with VSCO with j1 preset jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-leather-backpack2 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-leather-backpack3 Processed with VSCO with j1 preset Processed with VSCO with j1 preset Glassons Denim Mini Skirt | Colette Hayman Cara Leather Backpack | Nude Lucy Anywhere with You Tee | Kumixu Boston Jacket | Wittner Banin Sneakers | Missguided Sunglasses (similar here) | Jolie and Deen Luna Earrings | Vintage Belt (similar here)


I’ve been wearing this backpack to death all around the city, to shoots and to the gym! It’s such a good all-rounder and what I love is it’s real leather but not heavy at all so will be great for travelling.

Which I should mention I am going away soon!! So excited!! I’ll be in Perth from Christmas Eve until the 30th when I’ll be flying to Byron Bay for Falls Festival to meet up with some friends, then back to Western Australia down south form Perth… I’ve never been before but my boyfriend is very excited to show me around :)

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.

The $30 Denim Shorts I’ve Worn To Death

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-glassons-bonds jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-glassons-bonds1 jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-glassons-bonds2 Glassons Print Button Up ShirtGlassons 90′s Cutaway Denim Shorts | Bonds Swim Triangle Bikini | Oscar Wylee Kato Sunglasses | Kookai Fine Pisa Necklace | Kookai Necklace


I never thought I’d say this but these Glassons jean shorts have been my favourite piece of my summer wardrobe so far… and they were only $30!! They’re the perfect fit, not too tight, not too loose, the perfect amount of rips and the off-white is so on point that it goes with every summer top – denim shirts, crop tops, t-shirts, white button ups and bikini tops!

I’m thinking of getting a second pair just in case I lose these, if they’re in the wash or slowly die over time… and at $30 that’s not too bad of an investment! Does anyone else do that?!

I don’t think I could see a palm print bag like this and just walk away – it’s soo cute and perfect for summer with a white playsuit or dress. 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!!?

Happy December Everyone!!
