Ibiza rocks – style guide.

Holiday time! 1 week in Ibiza with one of my Besties.  The Fashion is colourful, vibrant and definitely out there. Lot’s of neon, lot’s of skin and what’s worn in Ibiza tends to  stay in Ibiza!

Little short black and white dress made of Bikini material, hence perfect for a pool party, worn with a bikini underneath. As for shoes, flats are best as you will be dancing a lot (I mean a lot), so I opted for glittery, see-through, rubber water sandals. They were very on trend this summer in Europe, especially in the UK and Ireland

You can never be without sunglasses here, particular at night. You will need them to disguise your poor little tired eyes.:(

For chilling at the beach, it is best to keep it simple. I chose cropped denim shorts and a colourful scarf to use as a Bandeau top. I love light scarves like these as they can be used for anything, very practical on holiday

Be ready to use your day outfit as clubbing outfit too. As there is just no time to rest. Be ready to party day AND night in the same clothes.

No holiday is complete without Bikini wear. Of course I couldn’t resist buying an Ibiza rocks Bikini top in Penneys/Primark when I saw it. Haha

Some neon goes down a treat on this party island! You might want to pair a lime green cropped top with a green/turquoise coloured mini skirt or some neon pink like my friend is wearing. No worries to looking a bit “too much”, the more “trashier” the better really. Go wild and experiment with some fun styles that you would never wear at home!

For a more chilled evening head to Ibiza town and try some of the local tapas. This was our first night and we decided to take it easy after landing pretty late. Of course it didn’t stay like that and we ended up in one of Ibiza’s most famous clubs Pacha until the early hours. So once again be ready to party at all times and wear shoes in which you can dance for hours. My friend chose a colourful little jumpsuit for this occasion and flat sandals. Easy, comfortable and looks nice. While I wore a brown fake leather skirt (that is actually a top) and a cropped army green top with some medium-height platform flip-flops. I love these flip-flops as they are so easy to slip into and also have a little height.

The last night, well what can I say, it definitely was a wild one! Neon party, so lots of paint coming at you from everywhere. Make sure to wear something you don’t really care about. Although we didn’t know we were going here. We sort of decided last minute while out having a drink in Ibiza town. But sure why not end the holiday with a bang. Both of us wore a black top with multicoloured shorts. Most of our clothes shown in this post are from a shop called catch on upper Liffey street in Dublin. The perfect shop for a pre Ibiza holiday shopping spree.

The area I live in…

I have been living in Torpignattara/Pigneto for a while now (2 years). It’s an area in Rome that is vibrant, multicultural and full of life, even during Ferragosto when all Italians abandon Rome in order to head to the sea.

I was walking through my area this evening coming back from the gym and I was just inspired to write about it. I saw the most unique outfits, ranging from a pair of beautiful see-through shoes worn by a 40 year old Chinese women to the most stunning pink Indian attire worn by young Bangladesh women.

I wish I had my camera at hand, but guys don’t despair, I must try capture some of this vibrancy at some point before I leave to go to Dubai mid-September.  I have a month before I leave. Hopefully I will be lucky enough to take some photos of some of the most interesting dressed characters I have ever seen including a Barbie doll lookalike that skates around the neighbourhood usually in the afternoons and some very fabulous Transvestites that tend to come out at night.

Wish me luck xxx
