monday moodboard {no. 8}

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. 
This week's board:

A MINIMALIST NAIL | How perfect is this nail design for the chilly winter season?

TWO CLASSY GENTS | Well-dressed men are the best men. End of story.

A BRAIDED 'DO | I'm loving this elaborate braided crown! The perfect updo to add some flair to your winter look.

A BEAUTY WORKSPACE | This array of cosmetics and florals is just pretty.

A TULLE TOUCH | I adore tulle! The material is a close friend of a dancer like myself, and I love the concept of bringing it into my everyday wardrobe.

Hoping this Monday finds you bright, happy, and inspired!

Pinstripe pants are a favorite of businessmen, baseball teams, and other power players. Recently, this straight-and-narrow pattern has become a staple in the fashion world too. Not only will you feel like a winner, but you will also look long and lean in this vertical pattern.

Below is how I would style a pair of pinstripe pants.
This billowing, white H&M blouse gives this masculine pattern a nice feminine touch.

Add some navy accessories, like this Merona crossbody and Maurices statement necklace.

Tuck your pants into these Michael Kors boots, and your look will be complete.

I can't wait to purchase my first pair of pinstripes! They're so much fun to style. And who wouldn't want to add a few inches to their look?
