My Travel Style

Travel Style - Waketon Road

The Holiday’s are upon us which means travel for many of you. Brian and I are fortunate that both of our families live within 20 minutes of us. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t traveling happening this time of year. As I’ve mentioned before, I love to travel. No matter where I’m heading I prepare for my travel in the same way. In this post I shared how I...

How To Style Burgundy Accessories

Burgundy Accessories - Waketon Road Blog

If there is one color I have not been able to get enough of lately, it’s burgundy. It’s been my go-to for everything from accessories to monochromatic looks. Usually this time of year I’m all about true red, but this year it’s all about burgundy. You have seen a couple looks on the blog already that fall into the maroon/burgundy family. The velvet leggings from this look are some of...

Cyber Monday is here and it’s one of the biggest online shopping days of the year! There have been so many great sales running recently but online shopping has it’s challenges.

The Ultimate Boot Guide

I’m a boot girl! I look forward to fall every year just so I can break out my boots again. I always feel like an outfit looks so much more put together with a boot. It’s the finishing touch! I love everything from booties to over-the-knee boots. Since boots are my favorite winter accessory I wanted to put together the ultimate boot guide to show some of my favorite styles...

Two Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas - Waketon Road

Thanksgiving is almost here and I’m so ready for all of the delicious food. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. If I’m being totally honest it’s because I really love stuffing. I also love being able to spend time with my friends and family.  I know it’s cliché but this time of year makes me even more grateful for the people in my life. Brian won’t be home for...

Pleated Skirts and Why You Need One

Pleated Skirts and Why You Need One on Waketon Road

It’s hard to explain why I love pleated skirts so much. They probably aren’t something most people are immediately drawn to. There is a slight touch of “granny style” with a pleated skirt, but to me they are very chic. I love them for walking around a new city (seen here) or for a fun holiday party (seen here and here). Pleated skirts are all the rage around the holidays...

Blanket Scarf

Blanket Scarf on Waketon Road wearing Old Navy

Well, here we are… November! It’s so hard to believe that this year has flown by so quickly. The weather this weekend made it seem like we had skipped right from summer to winter. Luckily, fall decided to make another appearance again for Halloween. I’ve said before that I always love fall style. A Blanket scarf, boots and light layers are my favorites. And even though I love pastels, the...

October Adventures with Old Navy

October Adventures on Waketon Road wearing Old Navy

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables. A quote from one of my favorite books and I statement I completely agree with. October is a magical month. It’s hard for me to put into words what I love about it. The obvious things like pumpkin flavored everything and changing leaves are wonderful, but it’s something else. I relate...

An Evening in Montmartre

One of my favorite neighborhoods that I never get to spend much time in is Montmartre. When Brian and I were in Paris I knew I wanted to take him to see this charming neighborhood. We didn’t get to explore this area on our honeymoon so this was a must see on our day trip to Paris. I love what an artistic feel Montmartre has. The hills and winding streets...
