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

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?!

Save or Splurge Gift Buying Guide

Can’t decide whether to save some dollars or to spoil everyone on your gift buying list? Whichever way you choose to go, here’s a handy guide on what to buy for your girlfriend, boyfriend or yourself ;)

I’ve found some of my favourite heels, boots and sneakers from YSL and if you just want to steal the look instead of take the plunge for the real deal I have some amazing options which your bank account may be grateful for. I’ve also found you some amazing options for bluetooth headphones and speakers as well as my favourite chronograph watches.

What’s the Statement Colour this Season?

I don’t think it’s possible to feel sexier in a bikini than a one piece Baywatch style red bikini. I’ve showcased some of my favourite red bikinis here before but if you’re after something a little more conservative than plunging necklines and high rise sides, then this Bonds bikini will be perfect for you (there is more coverage on the bum than how I’ve styled it).

So get shopping and feel sexy in red this summer!

Up your jean game

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

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
