Destination / Wish You Were Here

Wish you were here: love, Jess

‘Be spartan’. That’s what I’m about these holidays. It’s time to simplify and live below my means. So long as my ‘necessities’ can include an ice-cool martini every day at five.

Escaping …
Byron Bay holds many great memories for me and I’m looking forward to making some more this summer. Rae’s on Wategos is a magical place; nothing superfluous, just the luxury of the beach on your doorstep. I’ll be celebrating my birthday this year on the terrace eating oysters with friends. Besides the beautiful beaches I love The Roadhouse, the Worn Store in Bangalow and that you can buy just about everything you need at Santos Organics.

Essentials …
Linen. I’ve fallen in love with it all over again and this time I’ll be wearing it loose with a black swimsuit below. A white T-shirt and white jeans (Ellery has done the greatest this season) will also be on repeat. A special evening means a piece of gold jewellery like these Alex Eagle earrings and Hermès’s Galup ring. My only beauty essential is Rationale Sunscreen.

Celebrating …
I’ll be giving white cotton knickers, toothpaste, because you can never have enough, and linen housecoats by Summer & Storm. Being practical feels like a new indulgence.
