What she wore: Watching football

Regular readers will know my daughter and I spend a large proportion of the weekends on the touchline – football on Saturdays and rugby on Sundays. And we have to dress up warm I love this outfit my daughter put together to watch her brother play football. She looks such a little posh girl!
