These white sneakers have been a staple in my wardrobe for the last few months… and now they’re on sale! I seriously get so many comments on them and they’re my new go-to, super comfy and easy to slip on and off.

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 :)

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?!

Up your jean game

jeans-beach-outfit jeans-beach-outfit Mesop Wicca Tube Top (similar here) | Missy Empire Danika Denim Cut Out Jeans | Superga Slides (black here) | Oscar Wylee Kato Sunglasses | Colette by Colette Hayman Earrings (similar here)


I love jeans and I need every type of jeans, especially mum jeans. Right now what I love is this extra saucy style from Missy Empire. I love the cut out detail on the pocket, it just gives it that added va va voom. The fit is quite slouchy which I love because it gives you a very ‘cool girl’ vibe.

I’ve put it together with these awesome Superga slides because slides are the most convenient and comfy pair of shoes/ sandals in my closet right now… just slide in and go!

Are you into mum jeans or are you staying true to skinny jeans?

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

What does it really mean to Be Brave and Free?

jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink jessie-khoo-fahion-and-sounds-minkpink Mink Pink Be Brave and Free Denim Jacket | Mink Pink Burleigh Slip Dress | Missguided Cross Body Handbag | Nike Classic Cortez | Kapten and Son Sunglasses


Be brave and free: easier said than done. When was the last time you did something brave? In June 2016 I quit my job and started working for myself, no experience running a business, no idea if I’ll actually make a steady income, no real reason to leave an amazing job designing apart from the fact that I needed to be free. Not everyone is wired to work for themselves. It takes a lot of self-motivation every. single. damn. day. doing something that’s not assigned to you, no deadline, no assistant, nothing but hustle.

I was scared but mostly excited at the thought of not answering to anybody but myself, waking up when I want to, pacing my life how I want to, travelling the world whenever I want to, and now that I do I wouldn’t know how to live life any other way. I attribute this to being brave, not just jumping out of the plane and hoping for the best but by planning, budgeting, working smart, being a good person, and being organised and meticulous.

I’m not telling you to quit your job, but I am telling you you need to be brave and free. Maybe it’s leaving a toxic relationship, moving out of your parent’s house, traveling solo to a new country, asking out that guy or girl, jumping off a cliff into open water while screaming all the way down, committing yourself to a marathon for charity – whatever it is, I promise you if it’s scares you, and it won’t kill you, it will make you a stronger, free-er person.

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.

Rose gold backpacks have been popping up everywhere… so naturally I’m getting on board! The best one I’ve found is this one from Colette, it’s the perfect size, shape and holds everything you need. I’ve worn it with these awesome patched up jeans & slides for an off-duty look with my rose gold Colette aviators.
