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....

The Monday Blues

Ah, the Monday blues… but in the best way possible! This weekend I was invited to attend an event at The W with chloédigital. Chloédigital is a lifesaver for bloggers (myself included). They are my “behind the blog” making sure everything runs smoothly. The event was for a handful of bloggers in the area and it was so amazing to finally get to meet so many people I love following....

Must Have – Off the Shoulder

Must Have - Off the Shoulder on Waketon Road wearing J.Crew

There has been a lot of talk on the blog this season about off the shoulder tops. It’s definitely a must-have style for spring and summer and I have already shown my fair share of them (here, here and here). I wanted to share a quick post with a few of my current favorites that are available now. My little gingham top sold out quickly, but there are still a...

Spring Date Night

Spring Date Night on Waketon Road wearing J.Crew

It’s always hard to come back after a holiday weekend, especially a long weekend. Since my scheduled days off are Friday and Saturday I got to enjoy a long weekend made even sweeter with Brian being home. We have been spoiling ourselves all weekend by trying a few new restaurants in the area. Our anniversary is this week so that combined with Easter made for several excuses for good food....

National Stripes Day with J.Crew

National Stripes Day with J.Crew on Waketon Road Blog

Happy National Stripes Day! When I heard that J.Crew was creating a holiday for my beloved stripes I knew I couldn’t let this go un-celebrated. J.Crew has always been my go-to when it comes to fun ways to style patterns. In my opinion no brand does it better. They make bold pattern pairings look effortless and cool, which always inspires me. There is something about stripes that we all seem...

Bold Accessories for Spring

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, I have been so inspired by the color red recently. It’s not a color that I usually wear in spring, so I wanted to challenge myself to find a few different ways to style red this season. On Monday, I shared this darling gingham skirt. Gingham is a spring staple, but red is a little more bold than the usual blue hues I tend to...

The First Year

It has officially been one year since I published my first blog post and I can’t even explain how crazy that sounds to me. I feel like I have grown so much over the last year, both with the blog and personally. You don’t really know what to expect when you hit publish for the first time and everyone’s journey looks different. But there is always so much interest around...

My Must Haves for a Classic Wardrobe

My Must Haves for a Classic Wardrobe on Waketon Road Blog

If I had to describe my style in one word it would be “classic”. I’ve never been one to float from trend to trend. I always prefer to stick with what I know works for me. I invest in pieces that will carry me throughout the years. My reason for this is because I want to be able to walk into my closet and pull a couple of my favorite pieces and...

The Spring Shirt

The Spring Shirt on Waketon Road wearing Loft and J.Crew

It’s that time of the year where I start to get very confused with what season it actually is. Some days are still cold and there are no signs of spring anywhere. Then I’ll wake up the next morning to a beautiful 70 degrees with birds chirping. Not to mention the stores are already showing their pastel colored spring lines making it even harder to tell! This week we have been...
