How to Wear Red in Spring – Red Gingham

Have you ever applied a lip color and felt like it was just meant for you? Well, that happened to me when I put on this red lip. My Galentine gifted me this fabulous shade of red for Valentine’s Day and when it put it on the other day it got me thinking. Why do I only wear red during the holidays? In spring my wardrobe becomes very pastel with...

How My Mood Affects My Style

Target + Who What Wear on Waketon Road Blog

As I sat down to write this post I started thinking about my style. While I like to think my style is constantly evolving and changes based on mood and location, one element that seems constant is my femininity. I wasn’t always into “girly” things. There was a time when I wore the same shorts with everything and my barn clogs since I was way more into my horses than fashion....

Accessory Refresh with Fossil

Accessory Refresh with Fossil on Waketon Road Blog

With every change in season comes a change in style. Spring is the season for a refresh in both nature and in fashion. It’s your chance to be inspired by all of the colors of spring and add some bolder accessories to your wardrobe. Blue is my color crush for spring in every hue from sky blue to deep navy. The patches of blue in the fields from our wild Blue Bonnets...

A Little More About Me

In my whole year of Waketon Road I have never done “a little more about me” post. As I have gotten more comfortable I have added a few more personal posts. I usually stick to the content but I felt like it was time I shared a little more about me. I’m seeing a few more visitors around here lately so a proper introduction is in order! So here are twelve...

Chambray for Spring

With most of the country knee-deep in snow this week, it’s hard to think about spring. But over the weekend we had perfect spring-like weather and I had the opportunity to wear one of my latest finds. Each season one staple I am always happy to see return is the chambray dress. Over the years I have collected many different styles from off the shoulder to a shirt dress with a...

Trendy Spring Style

I love designer pieces just as much as the next girl. Okay maybe a little more than the next girl. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate a great bargain. In fact, I think it’s easy to be fashionable if you buy the latest off-the-rack from a resort collection where all of the pieces blend seamlessly. Sometimes pulling a look together with trendy pieces from so many different brands...

How I Create A Cohesive Brand

Today I am continuing with my blogging theme in honor of Waketon Road’s one year anniversary. Over the year I have gotten questions from people regarding photography, editing and creating a cohesive brand. This is all a work in progress and I will continue to evolve as I learn more. But I wanted to share with you what I have learned so far and the tools that help me stay cohesive....

What I Learned My First Year Blogging

If you read Monday’s post you will know that Waketon Road just celebrated its first birthday! It’s been a fun year of learning the ins and outs of the blogging world. Now, I am by no means an expert but I have learned a thing or two that I do want to share with you. Whether you’re thinking of starting a blog, have been blogging for a while, or just curious what...

The First Year

It has officially been one year since I published my first blog post and I can’t even explain how crazy that sounds to me. I feel like I have grown so much over the last year, both with the blog and personally. You don’t really know what to expect when you hit publish for the first time and everyone’s journey looks different. But there is always so much interest around...
