The Olde Belfast Velo Jaunt - 31/07/11

The Olde Belfast Velo Jaunt is Belfast's first free jaunty bike ride inspired by London's 'Tweed Run'! Yesterday participants were invited to take part in a 14 mile round trip leisurely cycling from Custom House Square in the city centre along the shoreline up to Whiteabbey wearing fine dandy-esque outfits, stopping for a few hours to picnic in Hazelbank Park.

Though this style wasn't compulsory, gentlemen really put the effort in wearing vintage tweed jackets and suits complemented with cravats and bow-ties for a finished look. Bright Argyle and stripy patterned socks were also present to add a splash of colour! Ladies wore stylish silk scarves and cute straw boater hats with dresses and shorts.

A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon the event will hopefully run again soon due to its popularity!

Diet Coke took another stylish step into Spring this year by announcing its second fashion collaboration with world-renowned designer Karl Lagerfeld. Launched last month the bottles have been named the ultimate accessory for this Summer. The contemporary collection features three designs including polkadots, pink swirls and studded stars. Personally my fave has to be the stars! They are available individually or as a set in an exclusive prism-shaped collector's box created by the designer.
