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...

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

Blanket Scarf on Waketon Road wearing Old Navy

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...

How To Find the Perfect Trench Coat

How To Find The Perfect Trench Coat on Waketon Road Blog

Well, we’re back from our wonderful trip to London. I am already missing the fall temperatures and the sidewalks covered in golden leaves. Since September is truly the start of Autumn, especially in Europe, I knew I would need a wardrobe that would work with the cooler temperatures. England is also notoriously damp, which is why it was the birthplace of the trench coat. Thomas Burberry was the original creator...

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 month 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...

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...

Fall Must Haves: Back to Basics

Fall Must Haves - Back to Basics on Waketon Road Blog

I’m continuing my theme from Monday’s Nordstrom Anniversary Fall Wardrobe Staples with today’s post. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the perfect excuse to pick up fall’s hottest items on sale. As I mentioned in my previous post, I don’t go crazy when shopping the sale. I use it as an opportunity to replenish my closet with pieces that I know I will get a lot of use out of. So...
