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...

Spring Stripes

Is there anything cuter than bistro chairs and colorful macaroons? Every time I see this cute set up I am instantly transported back to Paris. While the Eiffel Tower in the background is hard to beat, I love the little ambiance of Bisous Bisous in Dallas. Brian and I spent our honeymoon in Paris, so it’s always a nice little outing when we can reminisce of our time in that magical...

Weekends at the Coffee Shop

Another weekend has come and gone and we’re ready for a fresh week! I feel like time is flying by. We’re almost a full week into February and I’m still trying to figure out what happened to 2016. It’s been a busy and productive year already but with that I’m trying to remember to slow down and enjoy it. On the weekends, I treat myself to a trip to the...

Black and White Stripe

Black and white is the most classic combination. It will always be in style and will always be my go-to. If it was good enough for Coco Chanel, then it’s good enough for me! I’ve also never met a stripe I didn’t like. This stripe peplum shirt is just too cute! It’s oversized which makes it perfect paired with skinny jeans or leggings. I have always had a thing for stripes. No...

A Twist on the Classic Trench Coat

There is nothing more classic than a trench coat. They are versatile, comfortable and practical. It’s no wonder we all have some version of a trench in our closets. I have always been a fan of outerwear since I love to layer my looks. A rain resistant trench coat over a cute dress (seen in this post) and Hunter Boots is one of my favorite ways to style a trench coat in the warmer...

Causal Weekend Wear

Weekends are always best spent brunching with friends, making flower runs and relaxing before the next week starts again. This weekend was full of all of those things. I think it’s so important to take time to recharge since we all live such busy lives and are always on the go. My weekends can be just as busy as the week, especially when you factor in errands. Because I am always...

Pattern Mixing with J.Crew x Drake’s Collection

J. Crew x Drake's Collection Flats - Waketon Road

If you saw my post on Friday, then you know that I am loving J.Crew’s new fall collection! I don’t think there is anyone that can top J.Crew in the pattern mixing department. They always come up with the most unexpected, yet perfectly paired collections and this season is one of the best I have seen in a while. I have always gone to J.Crew for great basics, but recently...
