My Style Monday: Pinstripe Pants

Hello my lovely friends. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Ours was filled with lots of Fall activities. We had a full weekend of no plans, (can you even believe it?) so we decided to do a few fun local activities. We went out to brunch on Saturday and then stopped at a local pumpkin patch to pick out decor for our home. Once home, the hubby mowed the grass while the kiddos and I decorated the porch and yard with our Halloween and fall items. Then we just chilled out.... It was wonderful! On Sunday, we headed out nice and early to grab apple cider donuts at a local food truck stop. Other then that, not much went on. I did look ahead and that was our last full weekend home until December (and we know those days will fill up too), so we really made most of our time home. OK, let's talk pinstripe pants, shall we?


This is my second season owning these beauties and I have to say, I wear them more then I thought I would. Honestly, I thought they would be for special occasions, but they have turned into my go-to wide leg trousers for any occasion. Headed to the school for a meeting? These will work. Out for a girls night? Yep, these still work! My olnly issue is that I waited until last year to finally get a pair! 

In the past I have styled them with both black and cream tops (see photos below), but I wanted to pull the brown color in the stripes out by wearing a latte colored top this time around. To make the look more casual but effortless, I added a faux leather jacket and velvet hat. In the end the outfit felt put together and I was very comfortable in it to boot! 

Top: Vintage // Pants: Nordstrom (last season) // Jacket: Shein (circa 2012) // Boots: Hautelook // Hat: Forever 21 (last season)

What do you think of pinstripe pants? What do you think of this styling? Also, can we talk about how different my hair was just one short year ago?! (Both photos below are last Nov. & Dec.) ;) Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you make it a great day! xoxo
