Memorial Day Weekend


Soho Soft Shirt - Ultra Soft Chambray - American Flag Print // Similar Crossbody Bag Here // Similar Jean Shorts Here // Similar White Tassel Earrings Here  

Happy Memorial Day, everyone! I hope that all of you had the opportunity to have the day off of work and enjoy this important day with friends and family, celebrating what Memorial Day really stands for. Remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces. I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the family's of those who died while fighting for our country. 

This American Flag Print Chambray shirt that I am wearing above is from New York and Company, and I love the look of this shirt. It could even be taken into the Fall months! I decided to pair it with some jeans shorts and flip flops. I would also wear Keds with an outfit like this.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend celebrating this special Holiday! John and I had a pretty laid back weekend. We stayed local, with the exception of Sunday. We took a trip up to Virginia to check out the Great Falls. It did NOT disappoint! Definitely not looking forward to the work week, however every day is one day closer to our trip to Nashville! I can NOT contain my excitement! (We leave early next Wednesday!)

Here are a few pictures I took yesterday at Great Falls. There were 3 "overlooks" that you could step out onto to view the falls, and they were absolutely breathtaking. Legend has it that George Washington could throw a rock from one side the Potomac to the other! (I would love to see that!)

Overlook 1



Overlook 2


Overlook 3 (my fave!)


So John and I did a bit of legit rock climbing (super proud of ourselves) - and got quite the work out in. We definitely took the harder course on the trails, and witnessed some rock climbers and some people kayaking on the Potomac! Definitely a cool sight to see.



So I am in love with the "running skirts" from Victoria's Secret. Especially during Summer outdoor workouts. They are SO cute, and make working out so much more fun. Plus, you don't see too many people wearing running skirts when they work out, and I like to be different. My top is just a classic tank from Target (I own one in every color) and they are my favorite to just throw on before going to the gym!


Today we stopped by Kloby's for dinner because nothing says "America" quite like great BBQ. I'm topping my weekend off with The Bachelorette! 

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend, and if you haven't already, be sure to check out the Great Falls in Virginia - they are definitely worth the drive!

I would love to hear how ya'll spent your Holiday weekend!
Thanks so much for reading!

Shorts Weather + Bachelorette Recap


Similar Paisley Blouse here // J Crew Chino Shorts // Chinese Laundry Magical Wedge Sandal // Kate Spade Cedar Street Cami // Similar Tassel Earrings Here // Lipstick - MAC Rebel //  Manicure - OPI Don't Burst My Bubble

I am so excited that I am finally able to wear shorts! My fellow Marylanders (and ya'll on the East Coast) can probably agree with me on how sick we all are of the rain. Don't get me wrong, I love my Hunter Boots - but it's time to put those pretty things to rest. Bring on the shorts and open toes! 

This Paisley blouse is another New York and Company find, however it is unavailable online. The one that I have linked above is adorable and I am in love with the pattern! These wedges are from Chinese Laundry, they are called the "magical wedge sandal" which is pretty funny, because it's magical to me how comfortable they are. I usually cannot run around in wedges, but these bad boys are a different story!      

-----------------------------------------------

What did ya'll think of The Bachelorette last night!? First off - can we just talk about JoJo's hair!? So  beautiful! Best entrances - Luke and James. And Santa? "Jo Jo Jo" was cute the first time, and only the first time. As for Jordan, he definitely deserved the first impression rose - he's my favorite!! 

Thanks so much for reading!

Turquoise Tassels


Similar Crossbody Here // J Crew Factory Chino Short // Hot Pink Long Sleeve Tee // Manicure - OPI Don't Burst My Bubble //  Jack Rogers // Beaded Tassel Earrings  

I have become so obsessed with tassels this season, especially tassel earrings. I am a huge fan of big dangly earrings, but when they weigh down on my ears it really isn't worth it. Tassel earrings give a great look to any outfit, without weighing down my face (ouch!) 

These turquoise tassel earrings from Francesca's inspired this 'color block' look, and it's SUPER comfy. I would wear this out shopping or out to lunch! I was unable to find my tassel earrings on the Francesca's website, but I know they are still available in the store, and I have linked similar ones for ya'll from Etsy

What do ya'll think of The Bachelorette so far? I am so in love with JoJo (her hair is amazing)! My favorite (so far) is Jordan all the way! 

Who is your favorite guy on The Bachelorette!? I'd love to hear!

Thanks so much for reading!

Paisley Maxi Dress


Similar Maxi Dresses here, here and here // Similar Tassel Earrings here // Similar Tassel Bracelet here // Street Level Reversible Faux Leather Tote // Jack Rogers Georgica Sandal

I am so excited the sun is finally starting to peak through here in Maryland. I am so over wearing pants and so ready to pull out all of my summer dresses! This one above is an old favorite from Target, but I have linked a few similar ones for you guys above! I am a huge fan of bright prints, and paisley has always been a favorite of mine. The colors in this dress make it really easy to accessorize! 

Tassels are huge this season - and both my earrings and bracelet are from Francesca's! They are in stores, but I am unable to find them online. (all dresses are 20% right now - so check 'em out!) I have linked similar Betsy Johnson earrings and a Bauble Bar bracelet (super cute) for you guys also!

I hope everyone is having a nice and relaxing Sunday! I was looking forward to Wine In The Woods this weekend, but the rain had other plans for me. It's been a much needed relaxing weekend, and I am so grateful I was able to relax!

What are your favorite things to do on Sunday?
Thanks for reading!

Country Blue


Similar Blue dress here // Corral Women's Circle G Cognac/Turquoise Beige Wing & Cross Boot // Kate Spade Phone Case // Similar Crossbody here // White Tassel Earrings // Manicure - OPI Don't Burst My Bubble // Lipstick - Sephora Rouge Shine 

This blue dress is one of my Summer staples. It's so light and flowy, and pairs perfect with wedges or cowboy boots. The one i'm wearing is from last year at Target. It's made by Mossimo, and came in several different colors! I picked it up in coral and blue. I have linked a similar one above for you guys (i loove the ruffles on this one!)

On Thursday night John and I went to see Kenny Chesney at Merriweather with some friends. We had BEAUTIFUL weather! I chose to wear this outfit, but I brought along a denim jacket for when it got cooler at night. 

These Circle G Coganc/Turquoise Wing & Cross boots from Corral are a recent purchase from Country Outfitter. I am counting down the days until we leave for Nashville and wanted to get some new boots for the trip! For those of you who don't know, Cowboy boots are pretty painful to break in, so i'm trying to wear them as much as possible before the trip! Is anyone from the Nashville/Tennessee area and have any must-see places for John and I to check out? We leave in TWO weeks and i'm already starting my packing list! I would love to hear from you guys!



I hope everyone is having a nice and relaxing Saturday! 
Thanks for reading!

3. Never shop for jewelry again. Rocksbox does an amazing job at hunting down all the major designer jewelry brands. 

My first Rocksbox included:


This Perry Street Jolie Necklace. I added this necklace to my first Wish List and was so excited when it was in my first box! However, it was a little to costume-like for my taste. I wore it with a black dress to work and it really spiced up the outfit. 


Kendra Scott Lawson Cuff in Crushed Ivory Pearl - This cuff was so gorgeous. I am a huge fan of Kendra Scott, however it is not very affordable. This is why I LOVE Rocksbox!

Sophie Harper Pave Open Circle Studs - I love earrings. They are my weakness! I struggle with big earrings being too heavy for my ears, so it's a nice break for my lobes when I have studs in. These are a gorgeous pair, and they're dainty but still stand out!

My stylist, Molly, did an excellent job at paying close attention to my wish list and the comments that I had left on my taste in jewelry. Doing this allowed Molly to better understand my everyday fashion, and it made me enjoy my first rocksbox that much more!


I have teamed up with Rocksbox to give each one of my readers their first month FREE with code jaclynkreftxoxo. Don't forget to fill out your wishlist and let your stylist know if you have any requests! I just checked out my second box and there is this gorgeous set of Kendra Scott earrings on the way... so. excited.
