Polo In The City launched as an event just last year so it's even more impressive it's come so far in that space of time!
Polo In The City 2012 is already being hailed one of the fashion events of this year. I'm in no doubt whatsoever that the lovely ladies of NI will be kitted out in their very best ready for a day of laid back sports entertainment.
There will of course be Polo Matches for you to enjoy as well as a Veuve Clicquot Champagne marquee (and many others though this is the one I'd be headed to!) This will all be followed by a gourmet barbeque and the after-Polo party. It's sounding amazing to me!
On to what I deem the important part ;)
There will of course be a Best Dressed Female & Best Dressed Male Competition on the day with overly generous sponsors House of Fraser, Belfast gifting the winners prizes to the value of £3,500 (EACH!) so, if you are going, pull out all the stops!
I've put together 2 looks, I couldn't decide which style I would go for in the end. One is classic bordering on retro preppy and the other is ever so slightly equestrian themed.
I, of course, chose outfits exclusively from House of Fraser's website.
Don't be afraid to go all out girly girl if you want to. Kate Middleton paved the way for us girly girls at Polo events with her own stylish floaty number when attending the Foundation Polo Event in July.
I would wear the boots over the trousers and I'd hang around the horses until someone let me give horse riding a go ;)
I think in the end, personally, comfort would win out. With the weather as unpredictable as it has been we would hope for sunshine but just in case, sensible footwear and knits aren't a bad idea (says the mum in me!)
Polo In The City is being held in the Lower Botanic Playing Fields, Stranmillis Embankment on Saturday the 25th August, a charity event held to raise funds for Mencap it's not just a fabulous day out folks, it's for a very good cause.
