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...

The Importance of Time With Fossil

The Importance of Time with Fossil on Waketon Road Blog

I’ve been a little under the weather since I got home from Nashville. I think it was my body’s way of telling me to slow down. After working for a straight six days, hopping on a plane for a whirlwind weekend and back home to go straight back to work, it’s no wonder my body shut down. I’m not the best at slowing down and taking time for myself. I...

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!...

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...

Casual Weekend Style

I can’t even tell you how quickly this week went by! I’m still having a hard time remembering it’s June and we’re already half way through the month! Work has been incredibly busy for me lately and I am also working on a few very exciting projects for Waketon Road. I love staying busy but I really need to remind myself to slow down and breathe. It’s so easy to...

Why It Is Important To Adapt

Why It Is Important to Adapt on Waketon Road

When I sat down to write this post I had every intention of writing about the many reasons you need a utility jacket in your wardrobe. And I still believe that, so definitely invest in one if you don’t already have one. But as with so many things this week, I found myself adapting to a new direction. This week has been full of “curve balls” and as a planner...

The Inspiration Behind a Cohesive Brand

The Inspiration Behind a Cohesive Brand on Waketon Road Blog

Something I get questions and comments on quite often is how I keep my feed so cohesive. I wrote this post about the technical side of how I make everything flow including what apps I use. Today I wanted to focus on something completely different but probably answers the question better. It really comes down to inspiration! I have also talked about how I find my inspiration in this post,...
