What to do in Caye Caulker

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.

One of the funnest outfits I’ve ever worn to fashion week! A bright yellow faux fur coat and my favourite part is that I got to wear jeans so I was totally in my element and they had stars on them! so that theme dragged on from the previous day where I wore stars on my blazer and blouse (it was unintentional but a happy accident nonetheless).

The first day of fashion week is always the most fun! I loved sharing the experience with my boohoo family getting to wear this incredible statement top.

I’m really digging tops and pants lately I think the trend is moving that way… androgynes yet feminine. The flares with the puffy sleeve really stand out and to be very honest I was soo comfy! Something you don’t usually get the pleasure of while you’re at fashion week!

I got to go to a few amazing shows where chiffon, white, hot pink and orange are looking like the hot colours for this upcoming Spring/ Summer… something to keep in mind when I’m packing for Europe!!

Baywatch

fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside fashion-and-sounds-jessie-khoo-gooseberry-seaside With the new Baywatch movie is coming out next month featuring my future husband, Dwayne Johnson and side piece, Zac Efron. So I had to get on board and sport the ultimate Baywatch bikini – A red one piece – this one from Gooseberry fits like a glove… but check out the slideshow below to find your perfect Baywatch red one piece bikini!

One of my favourite ones is this low back dark red one from Jade Swim. If you’re after a plunging neckline like the one I’m wearing check out this one from Morgan Lane. But if you’re a little more conservative, nothing too high cut on the thigh or showing too much side boob but want the option of being more sexy with a zip front you MUST pick up this bikini from Oye Swimwear. And of course the look wouldn’t be complete without aviator sunglasses! Also in the carousel below.

Pyjama Dressing

I (and many others) am obsessed with slip dresses right now. I love the feeling of satin and the only thing better than that is satin on satin. I love layering these pyjama style pieces together to get the ultimate cool girl relaxed style outfit. I’ve put it together with leather to grunge it up and a pair of studded gladiator heels & leather wrap neck choker.

A huge trend that’s been on the cards is mesh, but this dress from Showpo has really amped up the anti with this almost chainmail style maxi dress with high slits. Okay, maybe it’s technically a top but it’s so dope either way.

I put it over this gorgeous bralette also from Showpo and my fave little black booties of the season from Sol Sana.

I’ve worn it with these awesome patched up jeans & slides for an off-duty look with my rose gold Colette aviators.

This is probably one of my favourite outfits I’ve ever put together. I love the fit and flare shape of the sleeves with the skirt and all the neutral colours giving highlight to the denim blue boots and the cute little embroidery on the side. I’m rarely boho but this is a nice little gateway to the style.
