Holiday-Party Ready // Slip Dress + Plaid Coat

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

Nyc fashion blogger Kathleen Harper's 2019 holiday photo shoot in New York City.
December means it’s time to party. From pearlized clips to glittery clutches and velvet boots, all things festive are not only fair game, they’re ENCOURAGED. You know what they say, the more the merrier - and this holiday season is ALL about being merry (...and bright. And sparkly.)!

Sleek and chic, this holiday-approved look isn’t over-the-top, but it still packs a festive punch. This black slip dress has been one of my favorite pieces these past few months, and layered with a tee underneath and a printed coat on top, it’s perfect for your next soirĂ©e.

Never underestimate the power of details - especially for a party or event. These embellished barrettes are playful yet elegant and serve as a super easy way to add a hint of glamour to any look - even jeans and a tee.

You may have noticed that my hair looks extra fabulous in these photos ;). That’s because I had gotten a blowout earlier in the day. It’s a wonder what a good hair day can do for your mood and overall spirit! I highly recommend treating yourself to a trip to the salon before a special occasion - it’ll give you SUCH a feel-good boost of confidence.

The Christmas season is about a week shorter than usual this year, and I am FEELING it. Anyone else? Things feel more hectic than normal (which says a lot), and I just know that I won’t be able to accomplish every little thing on my list. But you know what? I’m learning to be okay with that. We can’t do it all, and this is the perfect season to practice self-care, patience, and being present. After all, I don’t just want to “get through” the holidays, I want to EMBRACE them!
