Summertime can be hectic, hot and overwhelmingly social at times, so making some time for yourself isn’t such a bad idea. Whether it’s indulging in a spot of solitary sunbathing, finding a quiet corner in your favourite cafe to lose yourself in a novel, or simply taking a walk to find quiet inspiration, this summer is a time to dress to impress…. yourself!
Being Beside the Seaside
Take the opportunity to slip on one of this summer’s silky kaftans and take a stroll along the beach with only the sound of the waves and gulls to occupy your thoughts. But don’t forget a wide-brimmed hat and matching oversized tote to team up with this perfect seaside look.
Relax by the Pool
With so many versions this summer, maxi dresses come out on top as the style garment of choice for so many occasions. You can wind down by the pool with the latest flowing patchwork maxi dresses that can easily be accessorised to give an effortless day-to-evening look.
Dress Up and Hit the Town
Why not go it alone and head to the bar by yourself? According to a study by Professor Karen Pine reported in Bustle.com, dressing up makes us more confident, so finding the ideal evening look has never been more important.
Do Something You Really Enjoy
Life can often be about compromise, which we usually do not mind. However, once in a while, it is important to do exactly as we wish. Go and see your favourite band or spend an unhurried afternoon in a local art gallery. Dress for the occasion by browsing ranges at https://www.axparis.com/collections/maxi-dresses, seeking ideal styles for a day out by yourself where you are likely to meet people like you. Strike up conversation with a stranger – be brave!
Have Fun and Stay Safe
Whatever and wherever you choose to be, always be safe when you are out and about by yourself. Do not leave your glass unattended, and be careful how much alcohol you drink. Let your friends know where you are heading, and don’t take shortcuts through lonely places where you could be vulnerable. You can certainly have fun when you go out alone, and you may find that times spent solo can be both inspiring and re-energising.
