New month, New activities? With May upon us and the cold weather really kicking in, our favourite Summer activities like going to the beach or having a picnic no longer seem that enticing when it’s already dark and freezing outside by 6 pm. So at Esther & Co, we have curated a list of fun activity ideas for the colder month of May, as well as your go-to outfits for every occasion.
Whether you’re there for the delicious scones, Earl Grey or even the bubbly champagne, High Tea is a go-to indoor activity for a relaxing day of leisure and elegance. Also with Mother’s Day just around the corner, many venues in Sydney such as Sofitel Hotel and Boronia Tea Room are offering Mother’s Day High Tea and Afternoon Tea. For lavish afternoon’s like this, we recommend our Darla Dress, which is both comfortable yet sophisticated.
BYO Painting Classes
BYO art classes- yes they're a thing. Sydney’s Paint & Sip and Melbourne’s Cork & Canvas offer paint sessions where you can bring your own alcohol with all paint equipment taken care of. Can't find a BYO art class near you? Make your own! All you need is a canvas, paints, and a bottle of wine. What better way to spend a rainy or cold night than with your besties than sipping on your favourite wine and creating a Van Gough-like work of art?
A relaxed top like the Ainslee Knit paired with skinny jeans is the perfect outfit for nights like this, where there’s no pressure to dress up but you still want to feel comfy and chic.
Indoor Put-Put golf
Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean we can’t still do the usual outdoor activities indoors. Indoor put-put is a great way to get a bunch of friends together and have a fun night of healthy competition. The infamous Holey Moley gold club combines this with a cocktail bar and club set up, perfect for an adult take on mini golf, check out where your closest club is! For put-put you want to be as comfortable as possible, so the Emmie Pants are our top pick! The flowy, wide legged style let’s you move around easily and still look gorgeous. A perfect outfit for a chic golf pro!
One can’t say no to some rooftop drinks with sprawling views of the city. Most rooftop bars are decked out with heaters so you won't be sipping on cocktails in the freezing cold! A perfect outerwear piece is still a must for chilly nights out on the town. The Angelo Coat is a favourite of ours as it has a flattering silhouette and its long length will keep you warm all night, even if you’re only wearing a cocktail dress underneath.
Don't let the cold weather keep you indoors this month, rug up and make May the funnest month ever! For these amazing styles and more, make sure to check out our daily new arrivals.
