Rock chick no more! Former party girl Nicole Richie sips on healthy juice as she takes Harlow to children's concert

She was once a party girl but Nicole Richie changed her ways when she became a mother.

And the fashion designer showed what a different lifestyle she is living these days on Saturday.

The 31-year-old may be married to Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden but the concert she attended was worlds away from her husband’s music.

Family first: Nicole Richie took daughter Harlow to a concert by children's group The Fresh Beat Band in Los Angeles on Saturday

Nicole was seen treating daughter Harlow to a fun day out watching a performance by The Fresh Beat Band in Los Angeles.

It was a live version of the popular children’s television show which airs on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr.

Nicole appeared happy and healthy as she sipped on a nutritious looking green juice drink.

Always fashionable: The 31-year-old still dressed up for the outing in a patterned sundress, clunky shoes and a beanie

And even though it was a casual day out Nicole still looked as stylish as ever.

She sported a pretty patterned green and blue sundress with white lace trim.

The Fashion Star mentor completed her look with unusual chunky black shoes along with matching sunglasses and a beanie hat.

Happy and healthy: The mother-of-two was glowing as she sipped on a nutritious-looking green juice

Nicole has been showing what a doting mother-of-two she is over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

The day before she took Harlow, as well as Joel and their son Sparrow to yet another show – this time heading to see Yo Gabba Gabba.

A whole host of celebrity mothers were at the event, including Halle Berry and Anne Heche.

Nicole was also drinking a juice as she arrived at the theatre on Friday - perhaps detoxing after Thanksgiving.
