#PerfectPlans

#PerfectPlans is your guide to the weekend!

As we explore the hottest cities around the UK weekly we’ll be bringing you places to go and things to do to fill up your weekend and to show off your j+j wardrobe!
This week were getting excited about going out in MANCHESTER! Heres some ideas for all you northerners to help plan your weekend! Weekends are for living and not sitting in doors bored after all!

As one of our girls is a true Northern lass she has given us her top tips on where to go this weekend!

So here it is…..

Its Friday, Friday…..

If you’re wanting to ditch the faffin and get straight to it then get yourself home, forget cooking, slip into your fabulous j+j number, glam up head out to your first destination point that has to be the Almost Famous burger restaurant! By this point you’ll be STARVIN’ and there menu is to die for.  There known for their beer and burgers so make sure to cover yourself in napkins when you’re eating! No one likes stains on their jones+jones dress!! After you’ve finished eating you have to head to The Liars Club where you’ll descend the stairs and are transported to a tropical hideaway packed with rum, fun, cocktails and Tiki craziness a million miles from the streets of Manchester up above. Someone order me a Zombie…….

ALMOST FAMOUS FRIDAY

Saturday

After a hard night of partying there’s nothing better than enjoying some retail therapy and in Manchester there’s no better place to go than the Trafford Centre! Hundreds of shops are all under one roof with a huge selection of different restaurants to satisfy you too! Looking to treat your taste buds?! Oh good, because we’ve got just the place. We highly recommend you visit Pesto which offers a range of fresh Italian tapas; great to share with friends and it guarantees you can taste one of everything, if you’re fussy like us!! If you’re feeling ready for another big night on the town we suggest heading to Manchester’s number one celebrity and VIP nightclub! Who wouldn’t want to liaise with celebrities on a night out! This Saturday night Helen Flanagan is hosting a night called Taboo, which ensures tropical cocktails and great dance music!

Manchester 2

Sunday snooze-day

For a chilled out Sunday before the next week begins, we highly recommended a nice lie in and then a trip to Rain Bar situated in central Manchester looking onto a beautiful river! You can sit out in the sun and relax as you eat some delicious food! The atmosphere and the view is great and offers such a warm welcome that you’ll not want to leave! BUT if you do want to leave the pub then why not head down to the new attraction, which is the Sea Life center. Situated right next door to the Trafford Centre it’s in a prime location and has only been open a few months! It’s a great experience and there’s no reason why you can’t get dressed up in your jones+jones dress to see some fishes!! Throw on a pair of comfy shoes and work the day dress!

Let us know how you enjoy Manchester and what jones+jones dress you will be wearing each day!!

THE PERFECT GUEST WITH THE PERFECT DRESS

Awww, we’re as much in love with looking through other peoples weddings as the newly weds are with each other.
From the choice of table decorations, to the grand venues of Babbington House and Amberley Castle where we’ve seen celebs tie the knott, it spirals us into daydreaming about our own fairytale day. Totally loving our wedding week, inspired by princess Diana’s wedding anniversary to Prince Charles yesterday.

Now to focus on the part your going to play as the best dressed wedding guest!!

You’ve got the occasion, we’ve got the occasion dresses!

WEDDING GUEST GUIDE 2

Now that wedding season is in full boom and we’ve all been wisking ourselves off to some perfect days spent with our friends, families and their new spouses, we’re going to take you through some fool proof steps ensuring your the perfect wedding guest, eradicating any fears about what to wear .

After all we want to make the best impression, whether were the oldest singleton there and bound to bump into an ex or were meeting the new, extended family and friends and have run out of wardrobe ideas….Here is the answers…

wedding tips

  1. Always wear comfy shoes, no one wants to be hobbling around and your in them all day. Lets make sure you last well into the night!
  2. Make sure your bag is big enough to fit your essentials but not too heavy to carry around. Perhaps shoulder purses rather than clutches are more practical, and can add lovely shoulder detailing with a nice chain or strap.
  3. Invest in ‘Heel Stoppers’ so when your having your photographs taken in the beautiful parks, your not loosing a few inches by sinking into the grass! Also avoid ruining those lovely heels.
  4. Looking for that all day glow?! Make sure you have Bobbi Brown’s award winning Brightening Finishing Powder. #jjloves
  5. Some people like to be early, time it just right so theres enough people waiting round to gorp at your show stopping outfit!
  6. Don’t wear too much white the bride never wants to be upstaged!- that way anyway!
  7. Don’t forget to turn off your phone!
  8. Remember not to over indulge on the champagne and get too drunk to celebrate!
  9.  BUT don’t forget to enjoy yourself!!

Only problem we’ll be facing is how not to outshine the bride!

Subtle and sweet, our j+j summer collection includes an array of delicate lace dresses in this seasons must have pastel craze….

CHLOE DRESS CAROLINE BLOUSE CHLOE DRESS CAROLINE BLOUSE CHLOE DRESS CAROLINE BLOUSE

At jones+jones HQ  we are too excited about the new chloe dresses and its sister blouse Caroline. This dress is clean and smart, ideal for any important event and special occasion. Here are three ways of accessorising your Chloe dress and three outfit suggestions for all times of your day, any day of the week!

stylist guide chloe dressstylist guide chloe dress

 

We’ve said it before we’ll say it again, this summers hot on trend white blazer is a timeless essential and very stylish pared with both the new jones+jones Caroline blouse or Chloe dress. By adding different accessories or trying the different materials or cuts of the blazer, you can achieve totally different styles and add a crisp touch to your outfit.

the stylists guide chloe dress bright shoes

Compliment your black and white chloe with some tasteful bright splashes of colour.

By adding a pair of floral sandals and a sunny yellow clutch you can totally balance the sexy and fun yet mature vibe of the incredible flattering waist synching silhouette. It works this season, because the silhouette and design of accessories are having a sleek, pared-down moment with slender, boxy clutches – that lends itself to bright colour.

THE SYLISTS GUIDE BOWLER HAT

 

The Bowler hat, allowing you to create a smart, confident look that is effortless to achieve. Almost everybody suits a plain hat like a bowler and it can work wonders bringing an outfit together. Especially bringing out the black lace placket and waistline in the Chloe dress contrasting again with the white skirt and blouse. If you want to ‘casualize’ your posh frock this is certainly an easy way to keep it trendy but down to earth feel perfect for a daytime outfit.

We hope you’ve been able to pull some inspiration from this when styling your very own jones+jones dresses
