I have just arrived back from an amazing, very hectic / very drunken trip to the white isle of Ibiza.
I absolutely love this holiday destination, with this year being my third visit. Obviously one of the main reasons to visit is for the outstanding nightlife. Ibiza is home to some of the worlds most amazing clubs and hosts the most fantastic DJ line ups. However, I was blown away by the events that occurred during the day.
First of all was the Ocean Beach Club, situated off the (not so nice) San Antonio beach. Having celebrated its first birthday this year, the beach club has certainly stepped up its game from when I visited the previous year. Dancers, acrobatics, DJ's and friendly waiters all surround you whilst you lap up the sun around the crystal clear pool. This is definitely the place to showcase your new and favourite bikini (we all have one).
My other favourite place was Ushuaia. This was my first visit.... and it was incredible. Arriving around 6pm I was offered a highly fashionable vest top and greeted by an array of partyers in the pool.
The venue was perfect, beautiful pools, amazing (but pricey) drinks and awesome music (Swedish House Mafia).
.....But what was everyone wearing?.... Well there weren't any strong identifiable trends, although there were two items which appeared to be a must have Ibiza essential; Kaftans and Hi-tops!
Being a heels girl Hi-tops are not in my wardrobe repertoire, and for a holiday these seem an absurd footwear option. But actually they made perfect sense for Ibiza, as generally you will be in a heaving club where
1, Your feet WILL get stood on
2, Your feet WILL get filthy
3, There is always the possibility of stepping on broken glass
So when I arrived home I had a look at the ones on offer....and maybe one day I may purchase some....just maybe though!
As for the kaftans, well it was the brighter the better. I saw everything from tie-dye to embellishment to tassels. Here are a few I am hoping to purchase for my next holiday....
