Great Expectations

Great Expectations on Waketon Road Blog wearing Abercrombie & Fitch

I have thinking a lot lately about “great expectations.” No, not the Charles Dickens novel, but how we all think something should turn out. I think we are all guilty of building something up in our mind before we even experience it. It’s a way of looking forward to something and it might help us escape the routine we’re in.

Christy Dawn Gingham Dress on Waketon Road

I’ve heard it said that if gingham wasn’t worn, then spring didn’t really happen. This spring I have already worn my fair share but I don’t see it slowing down any time soon.

Off the shoulder tops can be challenging to wear since they limit your range of motion and the sleeves slip. Even with all of that I still love wearing them. It’s...
