September Style With Old Navy

September Style With Old Navy on Waketon Road Blog

September is here with the crisp early mornings and the occasional slow flutter of a leaf falling. September always signals a fresh start to me. It was the “back to school” mode for so many years of my life. It’s the beginning of the fall season. It’s also the month of my birthday so it marks the start of a new year. September is a monthΒ I look forward to for...

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...

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!...

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...

Why It’s Important to Make Yourself A Priority

Why It's Important To Make Yourself a Priority on Waketon Road wearing Old Navy

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about how I like to set the tone for the week. As I have gotten older (I’m about a month out from my 28th birthday) my priorities have really shifted. Not that I was really ever wild and crazy but my health and wellness are such a priority today. Now I’m not strictly talking about fitness-type health, although that has been...

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...
