If you’re looking for a little inspiration for your long weekend we’ve pulled together some of our favourite activities. Just have a little scroll down to check them out!

Outdoor cinemas are a unique and fun way to enjoy the best Hollywood has to offer. You could go to one of the locations we’ve suggested below or create your own in your garden… just make sure to use headphones so the neighbours don’t think they’re in Jurassic Park with you!

It may not sound as fun as the other suggestions we’ve given you, but you may enjoy it more than you think!

There are various volunteering opportunities up and down the country. Here’s a website that could help you locate an opportunity close to you: https://do-it.org/

We asked our wonderful style ambassadors to show-off their favourite pieces from the summer collection. We love their unique personalities and they always style their outfits in ways we wouldn’t expect, rocking it every time! Take a look for yourself…

 

Debby…

I’m wearing the Ibiza Beach Dress (£40) and the Boho Pool Sliders (£20).

“I just know I’m going to have a great time wearing this colourful dress! It fits so well and is really easy to wear. Today I’ve teamed it with these gold pool sliders which have embroidery and pearls on them – they’re so unique. I can’t wait to wear this outfit on holiday!”

 

 

Andy…

I’m wearing the Tick Tock Waistcoat (£55), the Funky And Fresh Double Collar Shirt (£30), and The Ultimate Brogues (£59.95).

“This look is great for all the summer occasions I’ve got coming up and if I need to smarten up even more, I’ll add one of our funky jackets. These cool brogues are my favourite – the bright blue soles and laces are pretty awesome.”

 

 

Becca…

I’m wearing the Jazzy Jersey Dress (£40) and the Bellissimo Suede Shoes (£50).

“I feel beautiful in this floral dress! The shape is so flattering and I love to stand out wearing colour. I love the suede heels with it and they’re so comfy. I’ve got a day at the races with my mates coming up this summer and this outfit will be perfect!”

 

 

Mel…

I’m wearing the Delicate Blue Dress (£45) and the Clear Skies Corsage Boots (£50).

How a colourful wardrobe can boost your mood!

Do you ever notice that certain colours affect how you feel? Boosting your mood, making you feel more confident or perhaps excited? Maybe you’ve noticed they make you feel calmer or perhaps more comfortable? Well it’s a fact that colour is associated with our emotions and can have a direct impact on how we feel. So what exactly does each colour mean? Take a little scroll down and check out how colour can boost your mood!

As we well know, red is bold and on the warm side of the colour spectrum, evoking strong emotions of love, warmth and due to its brightness; excitement! Perfect for an a adventurous day out  with a loved one or maybe to give you a little bravery for an upcoming event?

Vintage Dancer Dress                                                   

Retro Palms Shirt             

 

Quick to grab attention, yellow is wonderfully bright, reminiscent of days in the sunshine. Yellow evokes the feeling of happiness and joy, giving us a zest for life! So why not add a little joy into your wardrobe with a splash of yellow.

Fruit Of Love Dress                                               

Road Holder Leather Jacket

 

A colour that rarely occurs in our day to day life ,it is often seen as exotic, rare and somewhat intriguing. A mix of the two of the boldest colours on the spectrum (blue and red) when worn, purple can evoke feelings of power and sophistication. Perfect for that upcoming business meeting you have or perhaps a job interview you’re a little nervous for?

Unique Bird Dress

Oriental Shirt

 

Regarded as red’s softer cousin, pink is strongly associated with femininity and in turn when worn or seen can evoke feelings of compassion kindness and more commonly romance! Gents don’t be put off by pink, it’ll showcase your confidence and personality and we reckon the saying ‘real men wear pink’ is spot on!

Reflections T-Shirt

 

Last but certainly not least it’s orange! Full of life, energy and warmth orange is likely to make us feel enthusiastic, an happy and unafraid to stand out! If you’re looking for a pick-me-up or you’re feeling little under the weather, go for orange!

Summer Nights Dress                                                

Suave Summer Blazer

We hope you’ve enjoyed finding out a little more about how colour can make you feel, we certainly enjoyed writing about it!
