282 days to go: The Gymboree

It was the highlight of my daughter's year tonight - the annual Gymnastics Club Presentation Evening.
She trains 16 hours a week and the gym club is her life.
But on a rare weekend off from training my darling daughter had arranged a shopping trip to our nearest big town.
With £20 of hard earned cash in her sweaty little palm she came back with a complete outfit, paid for her lunch and her train fare. I was impressed.
Here she is wearing it. Dress with puffball skirt, Shoes, Bangles and T-Shirt - Primark. Long socks and headband - the indoor market.
I tried to take her photo at the event but she couldn't keep still. Her brother was less than impressed.
During the day I had lots of jobs to do including getting on my bike to collect another eBay parcel from the sorting office.
I wore Gap Curvy Jeans, Turquoise T-shirt from C&C, Red Converse trainers and oatmeal vest from Dorothy Perkins during the day.
In the evening I dressed up this skirt from River Island and wore it with a Black Halter Neck Top from Next and Black and Purple Shoes from Karen Millen. It was a long walk home in those heels, I can tell you!

Awww, your daughter looks gorgeous. Don't they love it when they have chosen or put together an outfit on their own? My youngest daughter has a really quirky fashion sense, but she always look great.

I love the black and white outfit - very classy.
