Summer Loving (Refresh your wardrobe, and your relationship!)

via Google

Many of us are re-inventing our wardrobes with new outfits for a new season – but no-one like to feel all dressed up with no place to go! A romantic day out is the perfect opportunity to show off your new summer outfits, and your partner is unlikely to complain about being whisked off for some quality time. Whether you’ve got a special occasion coming up, or just need to reconnect (and show off that killer dress/pair of shoes/handbag), read on for some great ideas for romantic treats for two:

Couples Spas

Why not escape from the world for a few hours, or even a few days at a romantic couples spa? If you need to reconnect and get away from the stresses of every day life, a great way to do that is to enjoy relaxing, chatting and being pampered together. Perhaps visit The Moat Spa at Ruthin Castle and experience the best a spa can offer. Enjoy the hot tubs, have a spring water shower, take a mud bath and curl up in a cocoon swinging from the trees before enjoying three whole hours of treatments in the VIP couples room, with the help of a bottle of Moet. After you've been well and truly pampered you'll then enjoy a delicious lunch. Of course, you’ll need a killer bikini or swimsuit to show off the new, pampered and polished you!

Parks and Gardens

There are plenty of beautiful parks and gardens to explore throughout the UK, from the Royal Park at Greenwich, which affords amazing views across the Docklands and beyond to the manicured beauty of Kew Gardens. Lose yourself in the beautiful woods, admire the historic buildings, sit beneath the majestic pagoda, wander beside the aquatic garden admiring the beautiful flowering water lilies and enjoy the heady aroma of cherry blossom as you stroll hand in hand down cherry court. A floral tea dress would be the perfect outfit choice.

Romantic Castles

Take a romantic stroll through history as you visit some of the most beautiful and romantic castles in the UK. Visit Hever Castle, the home of Anne Boleyn and famed for its connection to the time during which she was being romanced by Henry VIII. It's a stunning castle in its own right and you can see her bedroom and the beautiful gardens through which you can imagine she strolled arm in arm with the King himself. Leeds castle in Kent is another stunning and romantic castle. Said to be the most lovely castle in the world, it sits in the middle of a moat surrounded by stunning parkland and Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon stayed here a lot during their early reign. Feel like a Queen in bold jewel colours including rich purples, emeralds and deep ruby reds.

A Candlelit Dinner

If a romantic dining experience is what you're looking for, look no further than Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons. This stunning old manor house owned by Raymond Blanc offers an amazing dining experience. The food is simply exquisite, as you might expect from such a world renowned chef, the service is impeccable and the setting is simply beautiful. It's everything you could want and more from a romantic meal for two.

Whatever you choose to do, the star of the show (apart from your beloved) will be your outfit of choice. Choose a pretty dress or a sheer or embellished top teamed with a midi skirt (you can find some fashion-forward midi skirts from George at great prices) – either would be perfect for a romantic day or night out. Team with comfortable pumps if you're planning on a romantic walk, or killer heels if you'll be enjoying a romantic meal together, and you’re sure to look irresistible.
