The days are longer and sunnier and we are dreaming of picnics, festivals and outdoor cinemas. Just because summer looks a little different than anticipated, doesn’t mean these things are cancelled. We just have to get … creative.
With a little preparation (and a super cute outfit) you can be dancing in the sun all day long, watching your favourite film under the stars and sipping on Pimms while Serena Williams dances on the court.
Let’s start simple with a picnic – a chance to eat all the delicious summer goodies while lazing in the sun and reading a good book. The good news is that you can still do this! Either pop your blanket in the garden or on the patio or take a trip to the park. (following the rules, please!)
If you miss your friends, why not do it all together (over Zoom, of course). Share some of your fave recipes and maybe take it one step further reading the same book.
Ah, the event of the summer for many. There are few things more fun than dancing and singing to music you love with your besties. Well, the good news is you can still do this! Create a shared playlist on Spotify, or YouTube if you fancy music videos, pop on Zoom and have a festival dance party. Don’t forget to dress up, cause that’s one of the best parts of the day, right?!
Make it even more authentic by lining up outside the toilet for at least 5 minutes!
As one of the most anticipated sporting occasions of the summer, Wimbledon is also an excuse to show off your sophisticated style, and why should you miss out!? Pop on some tennis (YouTube is handy), grab some fresh strawberries and cream, make a Pimms and put on your winning outfit.
Don’t forget your Wimbledon-essential Panama Hat.
Watching a film you love under the stars is pretty damn special! So, do it at home. Get together all your blankets and pillows, pop some popcorn and get the projector set up. If you don’t have a projector, just huddle around your laptop.
