What I wore: Black and White Stripe Hartley skirt, Black Cardi and kate spade Call Me Chase Telephone bag

Yesterday I was in the mood for stripes!  I stayed with the black white and red theme that I have been using for the holiday season by pairing my black and white stripe skirt with red kate spade tights.  The ksny Call Me Chase telephone bag went really nicely with this outfit!  I actually didn't carry it though because it is for Christmas and I can't use it yet.  I did pose with it for effect and to help my anticipation!  Oh Santa please come soon! I hope my husband doesn't see this picture.  lol.

I made a stripe skirt in the new Hartley design to try it out.  Well... I really don't like it.  The fabric is too stiff to be made in this pattern. You can't really tell in the photo but the pleats kept poking out all day when I sat down and then they didn't go back to normal.  I kept having to "fix" myself all day!  It is also too full for the large stripe.  I tried it in a thinner stripe and love it.  It is a little thinner fabric and lays much better.  I am going to list  the Hartley skirt for sale in the thin stripe in red and white and black and white at the first of the year.  I will still wear this thicker one anyway but it is definitely not as good as the Katie skirt style for this fabric!

love this new kate spade colorblock coat from Nordstrom!

Nordstrom is taking pre-orders for some early spring ksny apparel! There are some cute things! Go check it out and have a great day!
live colofully!
