Summer of love: romantic ways to spend your days

All the inspo you’ll need to plan the perfect date…


All the inspo you’ll need to plan the perfect date…

This is a Marie Claire Advertorial

This summer is set to be a scorcher and when the sun shines, everyone lets their hair down. With wardrobes already bursting with stylish off-the-shoulder numbers, slinky 90s slips and dreamy sheer organzas, we’re all set embrace SS16 and let our adventurous side take over with fabulous things to do…

Keen to make some plans? Here are four of our favourite things to do for inspo…

Play tourists

There’s nothing more romantic than wandering new streets and sampling delicious new food, so explore the gems of a new city. Barcelona, Stockholm and Paris are all great places to visit in summer but if you’re looking for the ultimate Instagram-worthy spots, head to Reykjavik in Iceland for a dip in the steamy Blue Lagoon hot pool or to the beautiful streets of Venice waterways for an unforgettable gondola ride.

Spring a surprise date

Whether you’ve just started dating, been in a relationship for years or simply want to share the love with your girl squad, secretly planning an escape to the countryside or coast is guaranteed to impress. All you have to do is tell them a place and time to meet you and leave the rest as a surprise. Why not pack a picnic and a bottle of fizz, too?

Go to the pictures

We can’t wait for this summer’s hit film Me Before You andwhat better way to watch it than on the big screen? Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, it stars the gorgeous Emilia Clarke as Lou, who finds love when she’s least expecting it with onscreen man-of-the-moment Sam Clafin, as wheel-chair bound Will. The pair find their lives change in ways neither one could have imagined. Sigh.

Me Before You hits cinemas on 3 June, and trust us, it’s not to be missed! Watch the trailer now…
