French Connection: Helping us Northern Lasses!

Being a minimal dresser can be tricky at Christmas, which is a time for sequins and sparkle. Sequins and sparkle are two things I just would not know how to wear, so I steer clear (I don't think that will come as a surprise!) However, black is something I do know how to wear, and I am going to stick to it, even in this time of sparkle! These trousers are the same pair I have in grey (on sale too!), and I think I might love this black pair even more. They look so elegant and dressy, yet so so simple. I chose to team them with this top, it is simple yet so perfectly festive and girly!! Just look at those pearls on the neckline... heaven! 

I hope this outfit might give you guys some ideas if you don't want to be heading out to Christmas dos in sequins or a dress. However, if you do, there are some links to some amazing dresses and extra festive outfits at the bottom of this post. Seriously guys, French Connection have got you covered!!

Another reason I am sharing the French Connection love it to let you know about an event they have in their Northern stores this Thursday. I LOVE living in the North, and if I ever move to London it will be kicking and screaming as I have no desire to be there. However, there are so many things I have to say no to because of it, as most of the blogger events all take place in London. French Connection definitely understand the charm of the North and so have set up some amazing events for us Northern lasses to attend. 

This Thursday from 6pm they are hosting an event in some of their stores (click here to see which ones). Have a nosey at the clothes, a glass of bubbly and the chance to win up to £200 of French Connection vouchers. I am going to be at the Leeds store, and I hope to see some of you there!!
