    Petite fashion—crop top and long skirt

    Petite fashion—crop top and long skirt I am not sure if you already noticed, but I am a petite and I am only 5 feet tall. In China we believe the shorties have the better brains. 😉 Anyway, For a petite person like me, long skirts can be pretty challenging. But when I paired it with a crop top, the problem was solved. 🙂 My endless driving story continues… Tag! You’re it! Northern Michigan isn’t what you could call mountainous but there are some pretty good sized hills; actually quite a lot of them. So when they were building the Interstate highway system it seemed a lot easier to have…

    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…

    ripped boyfriend jeans outfit

    Ripped boyfriend jeans outfit I styled a post here about how-to-wear-ripped-jeans-without-looking-trashy and now here is another. Here is my driving story again! On the road again! Wow, where were we? Here I was posting about my experiences while learning to drive and then I got sidetracked. But it was a great detour! My husband and I went to Cancun, Mexico for our spring break vacation. You probably know that already if you’ve been a regular reader. And I have heard from a lot of you who were wondering if I would ever get back to the driving stories! Well today’s the day! So, to review, I had never driven a…

    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…

    What to wear on St. Patrick’s Day

    What to wear on St. Patrick’s Day Why is everyone wearing green? One thing I’ve been surprised about since I moved to America is how much American’s like to celebrate other country’s holidays. I think that often the holidays are more popular here than in whatever country they came from. Of course this isn’t always true and in fact, I’ve been a bit disappointed in how little Chinese New Year is observed. Even with the Chinese people that are living here. I always have a big dinner and decorate our home but many of my friends that also came here from China don’t do anything. I think they could learn…

    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…
