I'm very excited to be heading off to Ibiza in a a few days and I can't believe I haven't been for nearly 5 years! It's fair to say that I am (or was) an Ibiza veteran, going every year for well over a decade. Perhaps I won't be doing the every year thing now, but it is certainly a destination that feels like a home away from home. Now I'm only going for long weekends, I'm getting better at packing light to get away from checking in a bag as it's an extra cost and I also worry about suitcases going missing or being left behind which for me, would be a disaster! Knowing what to pack can be a pain so I thought I'd do a post on packing essentials to get through the weekend:
Sunglasses- Obviously the hero accessory. I always take one cheap pair and my ray-bans as I'm so scared I'll break/lose the bans if I over wear them
The sun hat- I normally go for a cowboy shaped or trilby style but the sun hat is great to protect your hair and face as well as add to your beach day style. I always have one by the beach or pool unless I use a scarf 
The beach cover up - For me, this is the absolute holiday must have. I have spent quite a bit of money on beach cover ups but they are worth the investment because I seem to spend more time in them than I do in evening wear.  I also find that a decent beach dress, kimono or jumpsuit make great day to night wear if you can't be bothered to change for the evening 
The playsuit - I'm a playsuit kind of girl, especially in the summer. They are easy to throw on and make an ideal holiday outfit as they are small and light to pack
The one piece swimsuit- I am yet to find one that fits me well but the one piece swimsuit has made a huge comeback the last few years.Some are designed to be more of a cutout one piece but those don't do anything for me. I'm looking for a good one piece that doesn't cut off my body and flatters my shape
Denim shorts- You can never go wrong with a good pair of denim shorts that fit nicely. They are great to dress up in the evening with heels and a cute top but also work for daytime
The havaianas- Nothing needs to be said here really. Uber comfortable flip flops that you can live in the entire holiday
The evening top (or two)- Even if you can't be bothered to get super glammed up, a couple of dressy tops work great for nights out. Ibiza style is very eclectic and people pretty much wear what they want so if you don't want to bring 100 dresses or find taking too many outfits a pain, denim shorts or jeans with a cute top can go a long way 
Dressy flat shoes- I'm still a heels kinda heel but dressy flats are a great alternative and comfortable.. especially for Ibiza!
The beach scarf/sarong/throw- Great beach essential or on the plane if it gets cold
