Ibiza Essentials

As you may or may not know, this summer I'll be living and working on the beautiful island of Ibiza - expect a lot of candid beach shots on my Instagram ๐ŸŒž. I leave any day now but as you can imagine, I have been daydreaming about drinking on the beach for what feels like forEVER! So here are my 10 essential summer items, with an outfit or accessory for every Ibizan occasion.

1. The Off-The-Shoulder Bikini

So, let's start with the basics. I love this Off-The-Shoulder Bikini from Pretty Little Thing! Bardot tees have been everywhere for the last year and summer 2017 is no different, plus these high waisted bikini bottoms will really elongate your legs (petite gals rejoice).

2. The One Piece

Sometimes you do have to ask yourself "Are the tan lines worth it?", but this Monki Cut-Out Swimsuit (also available on ASOS) is a big yes! One piece swim suits are going to be everywhere this summer, so be the first on the bandwagon. Tip: stay away from *that* red swimsuit - everyone is going to be wearing it.

3. The Cover Up

Beach cover ups should drape effortlessly and flow in the wind like you're in a cheesy 90s pop video, and this ASOS Off-The-Shoulder number does just that. Just grab your Birkenstocks and towel and you're good to go.

4. The Beach Towel

Is a beach towel an accessory? H&M says yes! Your towel needs to go with everything, so natural tones are the best bet. This cotton weave Fringed Towel oozes cool-girl vibes - and, look, hands free!

5. The Makeup Setting Spray

Makeup setting spray has changed my life, why has it not been around the whole time?! Rumour has it, the Urban Decay All Nighter spray makes your makeup waterproof ๐Ÿ”ฎ... Ibiza pool parties mean that this is a must-have item, and (similarly to most female 90s babies) these eyebrows certainly aren't natural! I'll give you my verdict after I've tested it out - if all else fails I'll simply have to hide behind some Victoria Beckham style sunglasses.

6. Body Jewellery

A simple way to update last year's bikini is body jewellery. Last year subtlety was key but 2017 is all about intricate, out-there pieces. Head to River Island and go wild because they've got a body chain for every. Single. Occasion. My personal favourites were this this Ladder Body Chain and Choker Body Chain.

7. The Slider

Nothing can beat the comfort and laid-back presentation of the poolside slider. I'm sure you already own a pair, I have five, but something about them means I am going to buy them again and again and again. Starting with these Metallic Mules from H&M. Is this what addiction feels like?

8. Anything with a Lemon on it๐Ÿ‹

I call it 'The Beyoncรฉ Effect'. The zingy citrus print trend is a thing, I swear! If you really want, branch out into watermelon, lime, even grapefruit. To nail two trends with one outfit and get double fashion points, this Frill Lemon Print Co-ord is the one #IAintSorry ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ‹

9. Layered Jewellery

This summer, when it comes to jewellery, the trick is to throw it all on and pile it up. It's all in the mix. I'll be cheating my way into the layered look with this Silver Necklace from Missguided.

10. The Novelty Bag

Anyone who knows me will be aware that I LOVE a novelty bag! The trend is loud and clear: Basic bags are out, novelty bags are in...simple. And if you're looking for a novelty bag, Skinnydip London is the only place you need to search. This Secret Smashed Crossbody Bag is my favourite item of the season - it's currently sold out online but is still available in-store and is selling out fast. Why? Because girls just wanna have fun.
