#Summerbyjcrew Event at Campus Martius Park in Downtown Detroit

This past Saturday, I had an amazing time attending the fun #Summerbyjcrew Event at Campus Martius Park in downtown Detroit.

You can watch my Facebook live video for this event and also my new IGTV to see more behind the scene footage of this event.

Anyway, when I think about J Crew, the first thing that comes to my mind are their signature blazers, which represent their high-quality preppy wear. I also love many of their statement jewelries. What is your favorite thing about J Crew?

I am a lucky girl because J Crew gifted me this whole outfit from head to toe for this event.

You can watch the preview Facebook live video I did when I visited my local J Crew store in the Somerset Collection in Troy, Michigan.

Now let’s have a quick look at my entire outfit. 🙂 After I learned that this event would be held at the urban beach in downtown Detroit, I decided to put an easy, but classy, beach to city look together. So the key pieces are my one piece swimsuit with denim shorts. There are so many great choices from J Crew, but I had my eyes on this striped one which you can see here. I paired it with a high-rise denim short in white. How can you have a beach day without a straw bag, right? To echo the beach vibe from this bag and my swimsuit, I also picked these blue statement earrings and a pair of easy to wear mini-wedge slides with lace-up ribbon to keep my striped pattern going. The final touch? Adding on this pair of red sunglasses to give a color pop!

It was a 90+ degree day, so it was perfect for this beach themed event. There were many people who came to shop and play their Plinko game.

I played twice in the hopes of winning a gift card, but I ended up with two popsicles. Lol. By the way, those popsicles and lemonade were super yummy. They are all from Detroit!

The lounge area was so fabulous and attracted a lot of people to snap photos there. Lol!

I am very happy to see J Crew come to us from behind brick walls to the heart of our city, bringing more fun, joy and local pride to customers like me. I am a shopper who values these types of personal connections. I have to say, J Crew just gained me as a loyal fan!

Sometimes I am surprised that there are still quite a few people who don’t really know what exactly bloggers do. After I explain it to them, they usually rephrase it as “oh, so you take pictures, post online and make money.” Lol, sort of. But not exactly.

Blogging Tips || Attending #BlogHer18 Creators Summit

Being in the blogging world for almost 4 years, I have seen so many bloggers whom I considered my mentors just disappear. This industry is super easy to start in, but very difficult to continue. If you look at it as only a hobby and don’t need to worry about how to cover your bills, it’s not such a big deal. 😉 It would be be great to just snap a photo, post it, and make money. Lol!

Blogging Tips || Attending #BlogHer18 Creators Summit

I have been interviewed many times since I started my blog. There are always similar questions. One of them is ‘What is one tip that you can give to new bloggers?’ My answer is always: be consist. Hard work is a must. Another question I often get is, ‘Where did you find all the national and international brands to work with?’ I know the answer sounds weird, but I didn’t reach out to them. I tried before, and there was no response at all. So I quit, and instead focused on creating more and more high quality content. After two years, there were more and more brands just reaching out to me because I had so much content online. No matter where they looked, I was there. 😉

In late 2017, I quit my teaching job and became a full-time blogger. I have been slowly shifting to a business mind set. Color and Grace is no longer a personal journal. I realized that it required not just hard work, but also smart work. I needed to constantly learn new tricks, new trends and new ways to manage my blog and all my social media channels.
