    casual leather jacket outfit

    Casual leather jacket outfit Spring in Michigan is not always that nice and warm. A leather jacket can keep me comfortable and stylish. I like to wear it with jeans on the weekends. Do you have your go to weekend leather looks? Remember that crazy giant truck? The story continues… Good news/bad news! So I had been passing and getting passed by this same huge truck for several miles. I was on Interstate 75 in northern Michigan. We were on our way to spend the weekend at my in-laws house and my husband/driving teacher decided it was a good opportunity for me to practice some high speed freeway driving. It…

    how to style a yellow blazer

    How to style a yellow blazer What color represents spring better than yellow? None! I am wearing this yellow blazer to my training conference today. Because the dress code is business casual, I paired it with a white skinny jeans and flats. If my brain has to work so hard then it is better that my body is a little bit relaxed. 😉 Here my driving story continues… What goes up must come down! So here I was, driving for my first time on a freeway and at freeway speeds too! We were in northern Michigan so I had that going for me. There was no rush hour traffic and…

    how to style a long vest

    How to style a long vest I styled this white long vest on the post called What to wear on the airport! Today I am going to Atlanta and I am wearing the exact same vest. Below my driving story continues: All things must pass… So I was driving on the freeway my first time. We were on our way to northern Michigan to visit my in-laws when my husband/driving teacher decided this was a good chance to get me some high speed driving experience. I had spent most of my time behind the wheel so far inside the city limits of the small town we lived in. That meant…

    Colorandgrace.com 4 Month Anniversary

    Colorandgrace.com 4 Month Anniversary! Four months. One third of a year. Ten dozen posts! If we’d been dating this long we would probably have met each other’s parents by now! And by some crazy coincidence, that’s exactly how long ColorAndGrace.com has been around. I know I’m surprised! I had some jobs that didn’t last this long! So, what do I think? Well one thing is for sure, this can be a lot of work! I am really trying hard to post almost every day. Of course the biggest pressure comes from the person in the mirror. This is pretty common for me. I set goals and then almost immediately, I’m…

    Leopard top and cutoff jean shorts

    You mean between these lines? So, I had to learn to drive a car after I moved to America. Most of you did that when you were still in high school. Here I was, an adult living in another country, not very comfortable reading English yet and sitting in the driver’s seat of a car for the first time. My husband thought he’d be the perfect teacher for me since he had grown up with cars and had a lot of miles of experience. There’s a saying that experience is a great teacher. We found out though that this doesn’t automatically mean that if you have experience YOU will be…

    Classy trench coat and jeans

    Is it supposed to make that noise? As I hope you know, I’ve been writing about how I learned to drive after moving to America. My fiancé was my driving teacher and his old little car was my practice target! We had survived my first lesson without driving in the nearby lake so after a day or two to recover I was ready to give it another go. Maybe this time I would even get the car out of first gear! The adventures we had driving in our local cemetery ended on a scary note so we thought maybe we would try somewhere else for lesson 2. My fiancé/driving teacher…
