Hi ladies,

It's Harriet and Charlie here, and we're back again this week to give you all the updates of the latest Ibiza shoot in this week's Reveal mag.

The 'Wanderlust' boho beach story was styled by Reveal's acting deputy fashion editor Harriet Davey, and you'll be able to see even more behind the scenes pics on her insta @harri.stylist.

We headed to Es Cubells beach in Ibiza to shoot (if you haven't been to this part, you 100 per cent need to) and set up at a local restaurant where we could keep all the gorgeous delicate clothes from getting creased.

The colour palette for this shoot is all about soft pastels and muted neutral tones to keep the boho vibe and look gorgeous on our blonde model, Rose.

Photographer in Ibiza 28th July 16

Photographer James building the swing

One of the shots had a Chloe-esque feel to it, and for this it was all about getting the right shot with a swing just off the edge of the sea.

It may look like a bought swing, but don't be fooled, a lot of hard work went into creating this swing for the shoot which involved searching around the roadside's of Ibiza for planks of wood, rope and flowers and somehow we managed to find it all.

The whole team got involved de-leafing the flowers ready to be attached to the rope and our amazing photographer's assist Rob made it with his own was a skill he didn't even know he had!

We got the photographer involved too and he made sure it was safe for Rose to get on the swing, and obvs for the rest of the team to try it out for some selfies. Then he had the job of making it look pretty with the flowers, ready for the shots.

We got some gorgeous shots on the swing, and Rose's hair was perfect with effortless waves and big brows with a nude lip. The dress is from and it's so beautiful it barely needed any accessories to complete the look.

Hair and make up

It didn't matter if Rose's hair got a bit windswept for this one, beachy waves is the look we were going for and it made it look more natural on the beach.

The view from the beach is amazing, Ibiza is definitely more than just a clubbing spot.

Back of Asos dress

Subtle yet statement dresses were key for this shoot, and this Asos maxi number is the ideal dress for summer occasions.

The tie up sleeves, cutout shoulders and lace inserts make it look more like a vintage find than high street. How gorge is the back of the dress too? We're obsessed!

With a view like this, it would be rude not to take some sneaky pics so stylist Harriet got snapping behind the scenes.

The sea is so crystal clear and the sand is pure white, it had to be the ideal location...and office for the day!

Fisherman in Ibiza 27th July 2016

Local fisherman in Ibiza

We went near the fishing boats to shoot some of the outfits, and this gorgeous lilac Jarlo dress from looked good against the worn wood detail, snap it up here for £115.

It's the ideal wedding guest outfit and it also comes in turquoise and cream too.

While we were shooting we even got to see the local restaurant's chef collect his fish and prepare them for the customers, you can't get much fresher than that!

Shoot prop

We finished off with a shot in the hammock for our fashion and beauty 'Style File' cover, we think model Rose was glad to have a lay down after a busy day shooting in the sun, and the rest of the crew had to give it a go too!

Grab a copy of this week's Reveal magazine to see the full shoot, and be prepared to get some serious inspo for those last minute hols- you're welcome, ladies!
