Back To School Shopping with Old Navy

Back To School Shopping with Old Navy on Waketon Road Blog

No matter how long I have been out of school, I will always remember the back to school shopping. Every year when August rolled around I started to mentally prepare for fall and the new pre-fall collections that were hitting the stores. I always loved back to school shopping. Especially the first day outfit. It was the first impression for that year and it was something I took very seriously....

A Great Little Black Dress

A Great Little Black Dress on Waketon Road at George Coffee and Provisions

In all my years I don’t think I have ever found a piece of clothing that makes me feel the way a great little black dress does. I have always loved wearing black. Black is so classic and looks great on everyone. It’s slimming, allows you to explore different pops of color and is acceptable for any occasion. Also, if it’s good enough for Coco Chanel, then sign me up!...

I feel like I have been throwing the “F word” around a lot lately, but it’s true that Fall is right around the corner. So now that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has come and gone, I feel like I can go back to enjoying the last days of sweet summertime. I’ve been noticing a slight shift in my wardrobe choices lately. Maybe it’s the transition between seasons, but I have...

Why It’s Important to Make Yourself A Priority

Why It's Important To Make Yourself a Priority on Waketon Road wearing Old Navy

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about how I like to set the tone for the week. As I have gotten older (I’m about a month out from my 28th birthday) my priorities have really shifted. Not that I was really ever wild and crazy but my health and wellness are such a priority today. Now I’m not strictly talking about fitness-type health, although that has been...

Fall Must Haves: Back to Basics

Fall Must Haves - Back to Basics on Waketon Road Blog

I’m continuing my theme from Monday’s Nordstrom Anniversary Fall Wardrobe Staples with today’s post. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the perfect excuse to pick up fall’s hottest items on sale. As I mentioned in my previous post, I don’t go crazy when shopping the sale. I use it as an opportunity to replenish my closet with pieces that I know I will get a lot of use out of. So...

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Fall Wardrobe Staples

It’s that time of year where the fall fashion has already started to hit the stores, but it’s still incredibly hot outside! This transition period always puts me in a strange mood. I am longing for crisp fall days but not quite ready to kiss summer goodbye. It could cool down, just a little, though. Since the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is coming to a close this week, August 6th to...

Why I Am Getting A Little More Personal

Why I Am Getting A Little More Personal on Waketon Road

I feel like I’ve been getting a little more personal on the blog lately. Maybe you like reading my thoughts? Maybe not! While I love writing about fashion, trends and upcoming styles, sometimes there are just things I feel like talking about. I started blogging for many reasons, but one of the main reasons is because I’m a writer. Writing is therapeutic for me. It always helps me work through...

Blogging Tips: How To Work With Brands You Love on Waketon Road Blog

A couple of weekends ago I had the opportunity to takeover the LOFT Instagram Stories for a day. If you have followed me for a while, or just poked around the blog you will notice that I #loveloft. It was such an honor that they reached out to me to be part of the 97 Days of Summer campaign. As a relatively newish blogger, being able to work with one...

Set The Tone For The Week: Getting Through The “Monday Blues”

It’s been the most productive weekend! My weekends have been so busy lately with all of the travel and the projects I have been working on. I haven’t really been able to spend a weekend at home catching up on things around the house. I enjoy everything that goes into creating content for the blog, but I also love when a weekend of down time comes around. It feels so...
