Finding Pretty Christmas and Party Clothes

Charlotte is happy to run around everywhere in leggings and t-shirt  (most of the time) or a big warm jumper in cold weather. But now she is at school age we have been invited to a lot of school friends' birthday parties and it's embarrassing taking her along in scruffy clothes. We have a really limited number of pretty dresses as they normally get worn so few times (and rapidly get grown out of!).

So with Christmas coming and me thinking she can't wear the same dress as last year we headed to the shops. Charlotte is a rather fussy clothes shopper as she has a fear of buttons (oh the school uniform troubles we had in the first few weeks) so everything has to be checked. Even pretty tops with decorative buttons are thrown aside. What we finally ended up with was 2 outfits from M&S and both at a reasonable price. I don't want to spend a fortune on a dress that gets worn so few times, but I also don't want it to look cheap.

Hello Kitty!
Very Pretty!

The first item Charlotte picked out was a Hello Kitty top and skirt. This pic is slightly wrong as the tights are black not white. She loves this and was clutching it all round the store and couldn't wait to get home and try it on. Shes a skinny minnie so the skirt needs taking in a little but looks wonderful on her.

The second outfit we spotted in a purple colour but not in her size so opted for silver, and we selected sparkly red tights like in the pic to go with it. She looks lovely and can't wait for parties and Christmas to get all dressed up.
