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...

A couple of weekends ago I had the opportunity to takeover the LOFT Instagram Stories for a day. If you have followed me for a while, or just poked around the blog you will notice that I #loveloft. It was such an honor that they reached out to me to be part of the 97 Days of Summer campaign. As a relatively newish blogger, being able to work with one...

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...

Summer Trends

Summer is approaching and I’m not quite sure that I’m ready! Spring is my favorite time of year because of the beautiful weather and all of the pretty blooms. I love summer, but we do get such ridiculous temperatures in Texas that I find myself longing for cooler days. But with summer comes all of the fun summer trends! When I think of summer I think of off-the-shoulder tops showing...

The French Quarter in New Orleans

It’s almost impossible to hear “New Orleans” and not imagine a vibrant city full of color and excitement. Since it is my first trip to this charming city, all of the major tourist spots were at the top of my “must see” list. The French Quarter is quite a contrast from the quiet streets of the Garden District. Definitely more what you think of when you picture New Orleans. We...
