Nyc fashion blogger Kathleen Harper's fall outfit ideas
While usually "a holiday look" works just as well for Thanksgiving as it does for Christmas or NYE, THIS particular holiday ensemble screams Thanksgiving. From its neutral tones to casual chic vibe, this is a total Turkey Day winner in my book!

 Although you can shop similar/the same pieces below, you don't need these exact items to recreate my look. Just grab your favorite mini skirt, a pair of your tallest boots, and go from there. If you have a vest or some fur, layer that up top. If not, a chunky sweater will do just as well! I kept my top simple with just a white v-neck and wanted my outerwear to speak for itself.

Every great holiday look requires extra attention to accessories and makeup. In other words, bust out your sparkliest bling and your reddest lip! No lie, the right lipstick and a statement earring can really go the distance in tying your whole look together. Here I'm wearing a plumish burgundy lipstick paired with glitzy earrings and a wrap-around choker. It's ALL about the sparkle & shine this time of year!

[faux fur vest: Ann Taylor (I also like this one) // shirt: Ann Taylor // skirt: Urban Outfitters // boots: Guess // purse: Michael Kors (I also like this one) // necklace: BCBG (I also like this one) // earrings: gift (I also like this pair) // lipstick: Nars in "Liv"]

Is it just me, or are these boots BEYOND fierce? I feel like a million bucks in them, and, better yet - they're on sale! Speaking of sales, I am so looking forward to taking advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals this year... although Black Friday has seemed to morph into an entire month-long event! 

But while shopping is great and all, remembering what you're thankful for is truly what the month of November is all about. This year, as always, I'm extremely grateful for all of my loved ones and for my life here in NYC. Tell me what you're thankful for below!
