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!...

Cute and Casual Basics

Cute and Casual on Waketon Road wearing Abercrombie & Fitch

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...

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...

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...

How To Deal With Negativity

I have been thinking a lot recently about the affect our thoughts have on our lives. When you make a conscious decision to be positive, you see that positivity reflected in your life. That’s the case with any emotion! If you decide you are going to be happy then that will be true. This is something I work on every day. Some days are easier than others, depending on the...

Beach Time in Florida

We’re back home from our trip to Florida with my family. It was just the break I needed! We stayed with my aunt and uncle who live around Pensacola and enjoyed everything the area has to offer. Which was pretty much great food and even better company. I haven’t been to visit in a couple of years and this was the first time that Brian was also able to come....
