Marsh Walk in South Carolina

The Marsh Walk in South Carolina - Waketon Road Blog wearing J.Crew gingham sundress

If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that we are in South Carolina this weekend. We arrived on Friday in quaint Pawleys Island (just south of Myrtle Beach) for a wedding. It has been a while since I’ve been in the Carolina’s. My dad’s family has deep roots in North Carolina and even I lived three years of my childhood in the South Carolina mountains. As we...

Black and White Stripe

Black and White Stripe on Waketon Road Blog, wearing Loft peplum top with J.Crew statement earrings

Black and white is the most classic combination. It will always be in style and will always be my go-to. If it was good enough for Coco Chanel, then it’s good enough for me! I’ve also never met a stripe I didn’t like. This stripe peplum shirt is just too cute! It’s oversized which makes it perfect paired with skinny jeans or leggings. I have always had a thing for stripes. No...

The End of Summer

The End of Summer on Waketon Road Blog wearing a Rebecca Taylor LWD

Labor day has officially come and gone which signals the end of summer is near. While the end of summer can be bitter-sweet, I’ll still be soaking up every last-minute left. The cooler weather that September brings is always a welcome change from our hot scorching summer months in Texas. September is the month I look forward to all summer! For one thing, my birthday always falls around Labor Day Weekend, and it...

Beach Essentials: What to Pack

Beach Essentials: What to Pack for a Beach Getaway

Hi Everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted because I have been enjoying a little R&R in Punta Cana! I went down for a friend’s wedding that also happened to be my birthday so I decided to just enjoy being with friends and not worry about anything else. I have to admit, I loved the break! Sometimes it’s good to relax and not worry about posting schedules or bringing...

A Twist on the Classic Trench Coat

Cherries and Stripes - Waketon Road-7

There is nothing more classic than a trench coat. They are versatile, comfortable and practical. It’s no wonder we all have some version of a trench in our closets. I have always been a fan of outerwear since I love to layer my looks. A rain resistant trench coat over a cute dress (seen in this post) and Hunter Boots is one of my favorite ways to style a trench coat in the warmer...

Causal Weekend Wear

Nautical Stripe Dress - Waketon Road-32

Weekends are always best spent brunching with friends, making flower runs and relaxing before the next week starts again. This weekend was full of all of those things. I think it’s so important to take time to recharge since we all live such busy lives and are always on the go. My weekends can be just as busy as the week, especially when you factor in errands. Because I am always...

Fall Wardrobe Staples You Need To Invest In

Fall Wardrobe Staples - Waketon Road-30

With September just days away, it’s time to start pulling out a few of my favorite fall wardrobe staples. When pre-fall rolls around I start going through my closet and assessing what I need for the cooler weather approaching. Fall is my favorite time of year for fashion. You can create such great outfits by layering, but it is not too cold yet that you have to cover everything up...

Skincare with YoDerm

Skincare with YoDerm - Waketon Road

Skincare is something I am very passionate about. I’ve talked about it on the blog before (here and here) and shared a few of the product and brands I love. Great skin though, goes beyond finding amazing skincare products, it’s about your overall health and skin conditions. Acne was a struggle for me while I was growing up. Even now I have to make sure that I am taking really good care of my skin since...
