You may not believe it but I have never been to a baby shower before this past Saturday. First, they just don’t have baby showers in China. When I first saw this phrase years ago I had a hard time to understand the meaning. Taking a shower with a baby? Or babies rain down from the sky? My imagination went wild and still couldn’t get it. Second, I am already 42 years old so most of my relatives or friends already passed the age for having a baby.
But I finally got a chance to attend a real baby shower last Saturday. One of my former co-workers invited me. Since I had never been to one, I wasn’t sure what to wear. I guessed that pretty much anything would be OK, as long you look put together. You can do casual chic, business casual, dressy… But I just hoped my outfit could speak to this event, somehow it seemed like fun was the feeling I was going for.
One morning while I was driving to work, an idea suddenly came to me. It is a baby shower, which means it is a very happy celebration for a soft and cute new baby in the near future. So why not get inspiration from baby’s clothing? And is there anything that could be cuter or more appropriate than an animal?
Below are some suggestions for the cute animal themed clothes or accessories that will help you pull off a fun baby shower look.

In a million years I would never have thought about becoming a TV host. Especially on an English speaking show with my weird Chinese accent. But it seems that it is happening now. I am so grateful for all the amazing things blogging has brought to my life. All of these new and exciting changes and challenges started with an interview/post I did last fall, it was called WHAT’S UP DETROIT ON TV 20 VIEWING PARTY. I covered the viewing party and interviewed the hosts of this new program and after that, as they say, “the rest is history”. What really caught my attention was that their mission was to focus on the positive side of Detroit. There are plenty of places to hear the bad news but I have seen some of the Detroit comeback with my own eyes so their message was exactly in line with what I was seeing.
What’s up Detroit airs on TV 20 Detroit and is just getting ready to kick off on season 2. So what does it mean to me? Craziness!!! Aside from my full time teaching job, part time translation job, almost full time blogging and now this TV gig. I have been super busy. I don’t even know how I am juggling all of these balls but it’s probably better that I don’t even have time to think about it! 😉 Anyway, I have to admit that I am loving it. The whole crew is so much fun to hang out with. I never stop laughing when I am with them.
You can follow my Youtube and Snapchat (colorandgrace) to see more behind the scenes about this TV job. But below are just a few photos to show you a little bit of my new life.
There are so many events. But we always have a good time.
Here are some more pictures from our first group photo shoot. Below are a few photos and a short behind the scenes video.
I started to wear more black dresses than before for the TV business. You know I love colors but somehow on TV I just look pretty big. 😉 You know what they say, “if in doubt, wear black”. I got this Black Sleeveless Midi Dress at the Lookbook Store. I had a very similar dress before so I know this cut and style will make my petite body actually look slimmer and taller. But it was hard to see the materials when I ordered it. I thought it was a little bit more formed fabric, but it is very soft and there is not any built in structure like I hoped. I was not sure if my body could handle this tight dress. Lucky I found a black slip dress with spandex from shopbop to wear underneath. And now I finally can wear it with more confidence. The best part? It is only $21 now. 😉
If you know me, you will know I love layering. So for this black dress, I added on this brown suede trench vest to tone down the sexiness and dressy vibe, and make it more casual for day wear. I wore this look for the viewing party and filming.
