In Ibiza with The Style Memo
If ever there was an ig account to make you stroll into work and book a 3 month holiday with a view to chasing the sun around world’s beauty spots whilst wearing the prettiest dresses you can lay your hands on, it’s Stephanie Peer’s The Style Memo.
We were lucky enough catch Stephanie between flights as she prepared to spend the summer in Ibiza – read her insider’s guide to Balearic style below.
– We absolutely adore your blog THE STYLE MEMO and we read it regularly for style tips! How did your career begin?
I’ve always loved fashion, and after graduating with a degree in Fashion Design, I moved to London and worked for Amanda Wakeley, Roland Mouret and Celine. After years of travelling the world, waking up in a new city each day, with 10 suitcases of fashion collections in tow, I somehow became a little disenchanted with the fashion world and I ended up working at a hedge fund…! I learnt so much there but it made me realise that I need some creativity in my life, so I started The Style Memo to share my style on my travels.
– Has writing your blog saved your love for fashion?
I’ve always loved fashion but as an industry it’s certainly very fast paced. We’d be working on collections back to back and at one point the amount of travelling I was doing for work got a little too much. I needed to slow down, but looking back, I have such rose tinted memories of that time and all the fun things we did. These days, I travel a lot but I’m lucky enough to get to see the world with friends and family and share the amazing experiences on The Style Memo.
– Where do you feel happiest; at home or travelling?
– Have you ever been to Ibiza before or is this a new destination for you?
– What are your plans while you’re in Ibiza?
My boyfriend DJs with Housekeeping and they have a residency at Blue Marlin so that’s my go to spot on a Saturday. It’s such a beautiful venue, sitting right on the water, and I might be a little biased, but it’s always such a great party with amazing music. I love taking a boat trip over to Formentera for the day. The water is incredible – crystal clear and the most beautiful pale blue colour – and we love to have lunch with our feet in the sand at Juan y Andrea or Beso Beach. No trip to Ibiza is complete without a visit to the infamous Pacha. We head there on Sunday nights to watch Solomon play and then spend a lazy day at my favourite place on the island, Experimental Beach Club. The setting is beautiful, the cocktails are sublime and the menu is full of local tapas.
