Happy Thursday and four days away from Christmas!  Today, I want to discuss how it’s magic when you wear a column of color.

Yes, that is a black sweater and black denim I am wearing today…both I saved in the color purge.

The sweater is an Eileen Fisher cashmere and I just couldn’t bring myself to toss it.

But, in putting this together as a look for Christmas Eve…church and home…it reminded me of the magic when I wear a column of color.

The magic when we wear a column of color (really any matching colors) is that it will slim us down.

Of course, it helps when the topper is slimming also.

Today I like the wonderful jacket I recently found at Walmart the best with this and will select it for Christmas Eve.

We are also experiencing colder than normal temps.

The Time and Tru Women’s and Plus Faux Fur Cropped Jacket is really a great, affordable addition to our winter wear.

It is soft, warm and quality construction….I think right now it is only $20.  A genuine surprise from Walmart for me.

I am wearing the Papyrus Beige color.

As far as me wearing black goes…as long as I keep my color palette in the topper and accessories, then it decreases the shadows the black casts on my face.

I do not wear it often, but I am glad I kept these two pieces so I can take advantage of the magic when I wear a column of color.

I think the last time I wore this was during the holidays last year!

The column of color I most often wear is navy and also a deep purple.

I really like to wear a column of color underneath kimonos.

Remember this technique…it does create that magic illusion of a slimmer you when you wear a column of color.

It is also good to keep it in mind when you are shopping the sales.

My boots are super comfy…these are the black Rockport Vicky Booties and I highly recommend them.

Recently, I received this bag at a boutique where I shop locally.

I think it is so cute that I am going to make this a project before next year and decorate my own brown gift bags.

I love how cute it is and it does give a personal touch to the gift.  I might even see what I can create for birthday bags too.

Does anyone else do this and decorate your own bags??

The cold front coming into South Texas today will be significant….for us any way.

I am excited to use our fireplaces and make lots of hot cocoa for the weekend.

It just feels Christmacy…I have many who ask if Christmacy is a word…sadly, it is not.

But we can still have fun with it.

Please share any thoughts you have when you wear a column of color…or craft gift bags…or staying warm…and remember, ladies, always…..
