I am loving the statement / bib necklace trend right now! Is anyone one else?! I love that just one simple piece can dress up an entire outfit + make you look so much more put together — like you actually put a lot of thought into your outfit. My favorite is to where a statement necklace with your everyday white tee + denim jeans for a polished – put together look! I rounded up a few of my favorites at the moment + most won’t brake the back and are under $50!!
Four closet staples every women needs…are just that a STAPLE or a basic piece you can dress up or down through all the seasons. These staples most women will spend a bit more money on because they are timeless + can last you years! But if you find a good steal like this black leather jacket for under $100 by all means snag it!! So here we go.
black leather jacket: this is a must have and now is the time to grab one because most stores have all their coats and jackets on sale! Trust me I found the most fabulous leather jacket a few years back in the dead of summer and didn’t buy it, because it was 100 degrees outside. (insert kicking myself) Anyway, you can wear this jacket with anything…joggers, jeans, a dress you name it! It’s just that extra piece to dress up your everyday t-shirt and jeans.
basic white tee: everyone needs a few these! You all know when you find a good one that’t not see-through, washes well, is long enough and the neckline doesn’t out you wanna buy three!!
dark jeans: a great pair of dark jeans (that fit your body well) is a great foundation for basically any outfit!! This is usually where I will spend more money. I love these jeans because they stretch and for me that is huge. I like to wear my jeans at least 4 times before I even wash them. Plus, less washing makes them last longer and always turn your jeans inside out so they won’t fade.
simple neutral heel: these grey suede heels are one of my most worn + favorite pairs. Because the heel is lower I feel like I can wear them on more occasions and for longer + they go with everything!
Now go stock up on some staples pieces for your closet!
So last week the littlest dude turned 8 months (insert mama tears here) to get my mind off the subject of him getting older I decided to pack up the little people, call some friends and go celebrate with donuts! Cause you know donuts make everything better! Ha. I’m not sure why this time around it’s so hard for me to hit another milestone with Houston. Maybe because he’s my last? Anyone else feel like this? Or is it just me?!
Anyways, I am so excited to share with you guys this amazing little black dress I found!! Wait for it…it works for ALL body types!! Yes it does!! It’s not to tight, but not too baggy and lose so it shows that you have some shape. It’s light weight, but not see-through and it’s long enough to bend over and not let anything hang out (if you know what I mean) haha. I love the neck line because it doesn’t sag down when I’m holding the baby or when any of the littles are pulling on me for something. Plus, did I mention it’s under $90?! I honestly ordered about 6 black dresses (from my favorite store Nordstrom) to find this gem!! I wanted a dress that I could run around with the little people and dress up with heels and some nice jewelry for date night, and this baby is it!! Seriously, I love when my friends find that great staple piece and tell you about it…so of course I had to share with all you friends!! Hope you have a fabulous Thursday!! Who’s ready for the weekend!!
Last week we got invited to Disney’s screening of the movie Zooptopia. We headed down to Disney’s Motion Picture Studios in Burbank to join the party!! Joe and I had planned on taking the little people to see the movie before we even heard about the screening…so to say they were excited might have been an understatement! All four kids lasted through the entire movie and after it was over asked if we could watch it again! Haha. I absolutely loved the meaning + message behind the whole movie and think it’s a must see!! Really, it’s a good one.
After the movie Disney threw a little after party with lots of goodies for the kids. We had a few friends there so all the little people ran around through out the tables trying to help each other collect all the Zootopia characters. The food was great and made for such a fun night to catch up with friends and meet some new ones as well. A week later and my kids are still talking about the movie and wearing their fox and bunny ears constantly.

thanks to Disney for sponsoring this visit to the Zootopia screening
Happy Friday friends!! It is warming up here in Southern California and we are so ready for spring + our little people’s spring break next week!! We still aren’t sure what we are going to do, but we’re excited for a nice little break from school work. So I been on the hunt for the perfect tunic for Spring and I finally found it at Nordstrom!! I just love that store + the free shipping and returns are amazing!! Anyway, I thought I would share my three essential items you need for Spring!! I honestly can’t live without these + they are also great for your vacations or just the beach or pool!
Tunic Dress: I am in love with this tunic dress (for only $68)!! I love that you can dress it up or down!! It’s a little bit nicer then your everyday cover-up for the pool, which I like because I necessarily don’t want to be wearing the same thing as the 17 year next to us. Haha. But I love that you can add a pair of heels + a nice bag (my favorite pink purse is 40% off) and this dress can definitely be worn out for date night!!
Big Tote: If you have little people or are traveling alone you know the difference a big organized tote makes in your life!! I love this one because it’s big enough for the pool or beach but it doesn’t look like a massive beach bag so I can use it for my everyday to day errands as well + this bright citrus color is just screaming spring!!
Classy Flip Flops: These beauties are a must!! I love that they don’t look cheap and you could wear them out at night with some white jeans but they also aren’t to dressy that you can wear them to the pool or beach.
I just love items that are so versatile and can be worn for multiply occasions…pool, beach, date night, or even running errands with your littles. Plus when your on vacation or traveling these pieces are always great because it means packing less items and makes picking out outfits so simple!!
It’s just one of the best SALES of the year…the Shopbop sale! Now is the time to stock up on any winter items you’ve had your eye on, as most items are already on sale like my favorite brown hat that is already 50% off + you can get up to 25% off when you use the code: BIGEVENT16 at checkout.
Above are some things I’ve had my eye on and a bunch I already own + are HUGE staples in my closet! Like these grey booties!! I got two years and still look like new and the the light blue distressed denim . . . I wear a these a few times a week. Haha. I hope your able to snag some of your favorites + I’ll just be drooling over that white + black swimsuit forever!! Thank you for always stopping by + all your support here!!
Happy Friday Friends!! So I have promised to share the four new hair products I’ve been using for my shorter hair and today is finally the day!! If you follow along on Periscope (I’m kailewright over there) I did a scope last month about these hair products + why I am I just love them. So I’ll give you the run down and why I’m using more product then I did with my longer hair. And if you’ve got longer hair you can see exactly how I curled mine in the video below. Also, make sure you subscribe to YouTube Channel so you don’t miss any of my new videos!! K, love ya!
Its a 10 Leave in : This stuff is such a great leave-in conditioner/detailer! Since I have not been letting my hair air dry as much this has helped protect it from all the heat from my blow dryer. Spray this in wet before your dry your hair.
Unite Texturiza Spray : Oh my word…if you saw this stuff on my Periscope you know how amazing this stuff is to get you some major volume at your roots/base with out teasing + it stays!! Game-changer for sure. Use this after all your hair is dried and styled.
Big Sexy Play Dirty Wax : Okay, so before I cut my hair I hardly used any product after my hair was styled…like no hairspray nothing, but now with shorter hair I like the piecey-messy look a bit more. My friend told me to get this spray wax and all I can say is this is what makes the whole look!! You spray it in like hairspray and it will automatically give you so much texture on your ends. Of course, use this for finishing your dry style.
Moroccan Oil : I use this oil after the above spray wax. You only need a LITTLE bit and only use it on your ends, just to smooth them out and take an fuzzy’s away.
Also, NUME is still honoring my deal for $50 OFF any product with the code: KAILEEWRIGHT! Plus you get free shipping over $50 . . . And now there’s another deal…any wand for $29 click HERE and you can use the code: LEAPYEAR (deal ends Feb. 29th). I am in love with my 32mm wand and 25mm wand I seriously use these daily!!
(NOTE: I still use this same technique to curl my shorter hair now, but I am currently working on another tutorial for my shorter hair girls out there..so hang in there!)
You can view all the items I used in this video HERE.
Friends!! I just got an email that my Most Favorite Distressed Jeans (also here + here) have been restocked in a few sizes!! These jeans are amazing and so worth the price!! I honestly wear mine at least 3 if not 4 times a week!! I linked to all the stores that had any sizes available + plus my tee is only $28!! Enjoy and check back here tomorrow for all my hair products + an awesome deal on the Nume wands!!

Happy Monday friends!! So a bunch of you asked details about my dress I wore yesterday to church + my shoes. This dress is currently sold out but THIS DRESS from Gap is almost identical!! Plus, it’s currently 40% off!! Use the code: NEW4U. I just ordered myself one, because you can never go wrong with a classic striped dress!
Hey friends!! Today I am sharing four items me + our family use everyday!! Most of them I can’t live without for our day to day errands and running around of little people. As you can see I definitely have my priorities straight as a comfortable out + athletic shoes are two out of the four!! Haha! If your a mom, sister, nanny or anyone that is taking care of littles all day you totally know what I mean. Enjoy!!
Comfortable outfit : This is key for me with four little people and running around all day long. I need an outfit that is functional but I also want to wear something that is fashionable as well!! This top honestly feels like a pajama top + these black pants are seriously amazing and so worth every penny!! The stretch in them is unreal and I only wash them about every 4-5 wears. Plus, black hides spills or spit up from your little people.. so you can look put together the entire day.
Athletic Shoes : I am loving that this is the trend right now, because who doesn’t love to wear gym shoes with every outfit?! I have tried quiet a few athletic shoes and these ones are by far the best!! My mom actually got them for me + my sisters for Christmas. They are the lightest pair of shoes I own…it feels like I don’t have shoes on, if that makes since. These Nikes come in a few other colors but if you know me I love black!
Tote / Diaper Bag : I am really picky with the INSIDE of my bags. I am an organizational freak and I have to have a ton of pockets so everything has it’s “right” place!! I love this TOTE and have two of them. There are 6-7 pockets inside and one on the outside for your keys and phone. It really make all the difference for me + makes it super easy and fast to find just what I need.
Stroller : I learned the hard way with my first baby and just bought the cheapest stroller out there without really thinking. Since having 3 more babies after that I am all about, function, how easy the stroller moves, folds up, stores all my peoples items and more. I have loved this Nuna stroller! The bottom basket is huge, it folds up so nicely, you can take of the seat part off and it can face forward or face you, the carseat attaches nicely and there is also a cot you can buy when you baby is a newborn. With running around every day to soccer, dance, gym and errands this has been the best stroller for our family at this time!!
