    Spring Fashion || Yellow Over-sized Blazer

    While many places already have spring blossom, in our Michigan, we are still at the last few weeks of winter. But for sure spring is on its way! As a person who likes to plan ahead, it is time to think about spring fashion. I have been blogging for four years now and every year I have been writing this topic. Trends truly comes and goes, but the bright spring colors are always the ones to stay. So today, let’s talk about the yellow over-sized blazer for spring of 2019! Every year it seems like I’m falling in love with a different color. Last year it was dust pink. This…

    2018 Fall Trend ||How To Wear Colorful Tights In The Real Life

    Every year there are some new trends often make you think “How can a real person wear this trend in real life?” Lol, you are not the only one who has this thought. Even a long time fashion blogger like me, sometimes I just shake my head when I see something on the runway. 😉 Wearing colorful tights for this fall? It sounds quite crazy and feels so outdated, right? But the fact is this 80s trends are coming back again with an even bolder twist. I used to own more than ten pairs of colorful tights, from purple, burgundy, to teal. I know, they were all very crazy bold…

    2018 Fall Trend || Snakeskin Is The Animal Print to Wear

    There are a few seasonal trends that are in year after year. Animal prints are one of them for the colder seasons. For some reasons, when we mention animal prints, we often refer to Leopard prints. Of course, leopard prints are timeless and will never be out of fashion. But this year, the hottest animal print is snakeskin. Are you just regretting because you donated all your old wardrobe? Lol, those 80s staples are coming back very strong. Probably look into your mom’s closet to see if you can fish out some of this print. For the transitioning season, I like to use some of my summer wardrobes still, but…

    All-Day Fashion || Munro Beth Open Toe Pump Mules at Zappos.com

    This post is sponsored by Zappos. One thing I noticed after I turned 40 a few years ago, was I have been wearing fewer and fewer sky-high heels compared to when I was younger. Comfort became more and more important to me. So this summer, I was looking for a pair of open toe mules with a low heel to wear with just about everything. Mules have been hot on the trendy list for a few seasons now and this trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon. I mean, with such a busy life and all the pressures we are facing every day, who wouldn’t love a pair of…

    How You Can Make 2018 Spring Fashion Trends Your Own

    How many of you are just like me? I laugh out loud when I see some of the weirder fashion trends on the runway. For example, the plastic trend for Spring 2018. How do they expect a real woman to wear those pieces in their real life? I have to say, many of the new trends on the runway every year could go wrong if we regular people try to simply copy them. Let’s face it, most of us don’t have a super model body and lifestyle. Something could look really cool on a young model, but make us look like someone’s grandma. Although I am a grandma, I don’t…

    How To Wear Bell Bottom Pants As A Petite Women

    Bell bottom pants, or some people call them as flare pants, have been one of the hottest trends for this season. There is no doubt that this dramatic style is the best way to make a statement, but the same time, it is a difficult style to pull it off for petite women since they may make us look shorter sometimes. Here are a few tricks that I used. 1. Pick High Waisted Bell Bottom Pants High waisted pants will create an illusion of taller and leaner look. 2. Pick Cropped Bell Bottom Pants Showing some skin at the bottom can create an illusion of taller and leaner look as…

    Design Custom Made Shoes from Shoes of Prey

    “Be yourself, everyone else is taken” —Oscar Wilde I am pretty sure you have heard this quote many times, but do you truly believe in it? I do. I was not always 100% sure about being myself until this year. My journey through grieving and living alone has completed me and I realized the value of just being myself. You can read all my Life After Loss series here and Living with Cancer series here to see how I got to where I am today. 😉 So who am I? I am just this petite lady with a big smile on all the time. I love colors, great quality things,…

    Find Out Which Colors Flatter You Most with LFB Color #1

    You all know that I love colors, especially bold colors. That is why my blog is called Color and Grace. 😉 I was told that back in the 50s and 60s every woman had to learn a little about colors in order to pick the most flattering ones for their wardrobe and makeup. I guess that is why that time period had so many fashion icons and classic styles. Those women really knew themselves and were good at picking out the best color to allow them to reach their full beauty potential. Nowadays, it seems like we have forgotten the science of color. Most women just stick with natural colors…

    What To Buy During End of Winter Sale||Oversized Puffer Coats

    March means spring is coming. But for our Michiganders, it is not so true. We may still get 6 inches snow in April. I remember one year all the little kids had to find the Easter eggs under the snow in their back yard. 😉 While we are waiting on spring to actually arrive, most of the major stores already started their end of winter season sale. Usually in March, those sales have deep discounts. If you know what you love, or what will be still hot next winter, right now is the best time to score a few things for next year. I am betting on the oversized puffer…
