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...

Pattern Mixing with J.Crew x Drake’s Collection

J. Crew x Drake's Collection Flats - Waketon Road

If you saw my post on Friday, then you know that I am loving J.Crew’s new fall collection! I don’t think there is anyone that can top J.Crew in the pattern mixing department. They always come up with the most unexpected, yet perfectly paired collections and this season is one of the best I have seen in a while. I have always gone to J.Crew for great basics, but recently...

J.Crew Fall Must Haves

I can’t even begin to explain my excited for the new Fall arrivals at J.Crew! To say I want everything, would be an understatement. I just had to share some of my “must haves” with you. Can we talk about that pink coat? I’ve been wanting one for years so that one has my name all over it! And I am obsessed with the new Drake’s collection, too. I just...

The Art of Fashion

Day at the Museum - Waketon Road-13

It may be fall in the stores but it is definitely still summer outside! We had a really hot weekend here in Texas, so hubby and I were looking for any excuse to stay inside. We decided to head down to the Dallas Museum of Art for an air-conditioned afternoon spent wandering the exhibits. Even though we have both been multiple times I felt like I was seeing everything for the...

Classic American Sportswear

Navy Blazer - Waketon Road-17

When I think of classic American sportswear, I think of navy, red and white stripes and pieces that will never go out of style. In the late 80’s and 90’s designers like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein made a mark on American fashion by designing wearable separates for women in casual but luxurious styles. With fall collections hitting the stores, I am so excited to see these preppy styles...

Poppy Dress with VIPme

VIPme Poppy Dress - Waketon Road-24

As someone who has always enjoyed fashion and styling, shopping is obviously something I love. I get so inspired by seeing the new collections and the emerging colors and styles. As I have gotten older (and busier) I have noticed a shift in the way that I shop. I used to go with my friends to the mall and try things on only to be persuaded by my friends opinions...

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Final Chance

I did one last drive by of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just to make sure there wasn’t anything left I couldn’t live without. Turns out there are a lot of things I can’t live without! I’m sharing a few of my favorites with you, also if anyone would like to send me one or both of the coats it would be greatly appreciated! 😉 I hope you all have a...

Plaid Blazer

Plaid Blazer - Waketon Road-23

As I said in Monday’s post, I am getting very excited about fall fashion. Once August rolls around I start making the mental shift to blazers, sweaters, boots and plaid. Texas weather hasn’t been cooperating with my rush to fall, but that hasn’t stopped me from breaking out a few of my favorite pieces to wear right now. I’ve been collecting a few great blazers that I am excited about layering...
