Some brands just know how to re-market themselves and slay it. To me it looks like every ‘it girl’ and influencer is wearing Tommy! with obviously Gigi leading the charge I kind of sort of definitely had to jump on board. Their wicked styles like this red denim jacket and mesh tee are so on trend right now it hurts.

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!

Soft To The Touch

Guyyyssss I’m back! I had a short blog hiatus for no other reason than I was a little bit slack and I’m sorry but I’ve just been enjoying this never ending summer in Sydney! Seriously it’s April and it’s 30 degrees… now I don’t want to abuse climate change but it’s kind of nice. I’m so torn.

In other news, because of this seasonal disarray I’ve managed to get some awesome swimwear content including these soft as velvet swimmers from Seafolly. Now, I’m not sure if their sizing is small or if I’m getting bigger (very likely) but I’m wearing a size 10 in the top and 12 in the bottoms.

These sunnies I’ve been wearing to death, they’re from Sloane and I have a cheeky 40% discount for you the code is JESSIE40 – their new range is legit!!! I think I’ll be buying a few myself.

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.

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 :)

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?!
