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...

How To Find Your Motivation When You’ve Lost It

Motivation Monday on Waketon Road wearing LOFT

Another weekend has come and gone and here I am on a Sunday night wondering what to write about for a Monday morning blog post. Most of the time when I sit down to write a blog post I know what I want to say already. Or at least have an idea. I also try to not make a habit of writing a post the night before. Last week, for...

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...

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

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...
