How To Not Miss An Opportunity

How To Not Miss An Opportunity on Waketon Road

I have been thinking a lot lately about blogging, social media and all of the things that come along with them. I have shared a few thoughts on the blogging industry and what I’ve learned on the blog before. But recently I have to admit I have fallen slightly out of love with blogging. The struggle to compete in a saturated market and the countless hours spent on social media...

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...

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 Fall Day in the Gardens

If you have been reading my blog for a while you might know that Brian and I love visiting botanic gardens. We got engaged at the Dallas Arboretum and go back every year. It’s one of our favorite things to do because it gets us out and enjoying the beautiful weather. I also have a serious love for flowers. I wish I could grow a garden but unfortunately I was not...

Thanksgiving Preparations

The holidays have really snuck up on me this year! Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I still don’t know how that happened. This is the second year in my working career that I do not work in retail. I think not being in a retail is partly why this holiday season has caught me off guard. It is also the first time I do not have to work on Black Friday so I am looking...

Weekend Uniform

The weather was cool and rainy this weekend in Dallas. I loved it because I love cuddling up on the couch with my blanket and a cup of tea and just enjoying some much needed relaxation. The brisk weather inspired me to pull out all of my Harvest decorations now that the Halloween has been put away. I love home decor. I get very excited about decorating during the holidays and...

Hello November!

This week has flown by! Halloween has now come and gone and we are going full steam ahead into November! I personally love November because, for those of us in Texas, November is much more like the rest of the country’s October. The crisp fall days are starting to appear in the middle of all the 80 degree days. Our leaves are starting to yellow and fall from the trees. It’s...

Orange Blazer for Halloween

Happy Halloween! Every year when Halloween rolls around I find myself thinking back to my childhood days of trick-or-treating. It’s pretty safe to assume I was dressed up as the latest Disney princess. I always loved getting dressed up as some character (I was a very theatrical child) but over the years the desire to dress up in a costume changed. I still love to dress up, but in a different way. Now,...
