. FRENCH CONNECTION AW14 COLLABORATION .
Well I’m back from my sunshine escapades after 11 nights of pure sunshine, blue skies & seriously clear turquoise seas. If you follow me on instagram (if not, WHY NOT, do it immediately right here) then of course you’ll know this already, after all I piped on about it considerably. Coming home from holiday is no fun for anyone, particularly when you’ve had the most incredible relaxing and brilliant time, but if there’s one thing that made coming home slightly more bare able for me, it’s that today I get to share a special collaboration which i’ve been working on with one of my most favourite brands. French Connection.

One of the best things about writing a blog is getting the chance to collaborate with your favourite brands. You’ll all know how much I love French Connection given how many of their clothes I buy and sport within my outfit pictures on my blog, including my most recent feature showcasing my new Sweetie Mix dress which I picked up before my holidays. Needless to say, i’m pretty chuffed to be working with them to support their new AW14 collection & in today’s feature showcase this darned awesome androgynous grey marl trouser suit which is from their new range.
Trouser (or short) suits are pretty much my new favourite thing, it’s the co-ord to the next level. Whilst the androgynous look isn’t something you’d naturally team with my curvy frame, it’s something I will not let biology stop me from playing with. If anything the tailoring on this gorgeous two piece shows how you can sport a trouser suit, even if you have an hour glass shape. The high waist, super tailored cigarette trousers create the perfect silhouette and still showcase a waist (which is a godsend for me). The jacket is boxy, and cropped … need I say more. What more could you possibly want.
Knowing how to style a trouser suit can be a bit of a minefield, but I teamed mine with a simple cami and my new Birkenstock Arizona’s to give the look an understated and laid back vibe. I sported this look whilst away on my holibobs, and managed to rope Jase into catching some pics at sundown outside our little suite which had the most gorgeous views overlooking Agios Nikolaos. As much as he complains, he certainly does take a good snap. The lighting is perfect, I only wish I could nab this backdrop for all my pictures!
Stay tuned for another AW14 FCUK style feature coming shortly, i’m already eyeing up a zillion things from the new range which I’m desperate to add to my wardrobe. This AW14 drape trench is actually infiltrating my dreams I love it so much & these white gathered trousers are so freakin’ cool. Only two days until pay day …
What do you think of this boxy androgynous trouser suit? Are you a French Connection lover too?
