We are headed down to Newport Beach for a short weekend getaway this Friday + I can hardly wait!! My little people don’t get out of school until mid-June so we need this little break before summer hits and baby comes!! I thought since I am packing (plus nesting like a mad women) I might as well share some of my weekend getaway essentials with you all!!
I have always loved a good flowy top + jeans (that stretch)…to let you eat whatever you want on vacation! Ha and because with three kids and by the end of the day I don’t want my outfit to look all stretched out.
Flip flops…we all know you’ve got to have a good pair that won’t rub in-between your toes or hurt when you walking alot. I love these teal ones + a having a fabulous cover up/dress that you can dress up for lunch or dinner is a must have as well. The back is amazing on this orange midi dress!
This floral swimsuit is even cuter in person!! (I know impossible right?) One of my good friends has it and the fit was beyond darling on her! So of course I had to snag one as well…and this ruched coral swimsuit I love, because ruching always helps cover the stomach. I already have 4 ruched swimsuits…because, I feel they are the most flattering on almost any body type!
As I have gotten older and seen the damage the sun does to your skin…I now won’t walk out the door without putting sunscreen on my face. I always use a stick like this because I can get it exactly where I want + it never gets in my little people eyes. Also, if you follow me on Instagram you know my love for any kind of hat + sunglasses. (crazy hat lady) haha! Enjoy!!
Happiest Memorial Day!! I hope you all are enjoying the long weekend and spending time with family and friends doing some super fun things. Well, I rounded up the BEST of the Memorial Day Sales going on…along with all the coupon codes to go with them. I hope you are able to stock up on some items for summer or back to school for your little people or just a new pair of shoes/sandals for yourself! (because we all know how much I love shoes) Haha! Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy + take advantage of these great sales below!!

I hope you enjoy + and are able to snag some great stuff, because things are going fast!!

Happy Monday friends!! So the husband + kids were beyond sweet and got me this pale pink purse for Mother’s Day!! I might have slightly freaked out!! All I have to say is that it’s the perfect size + the color is even better in person + I love the long strap shoulder strap!! I rounded up a few more fun spring / summer purses that I think are just darling + I have been eyeing…like this tan fringe one for only $28 and I am dying to snag this REVERSIBLE coral tote…it’s like to purses in one! You just can’t beat that + the price is amazing!! I always love adding a little more color to my outfit for just changing up my purse for the week. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do, and I hope everyone had an amazing weekend!!
Happy Friday friends!! So “basically” I feel like we all need a few basic staples in our wardrobe/closets. Pieces that can go with almost everything + are so simple to style. I swear I can pair this denim jacket with almost everything + I wear it weekly!! I love to add it to a nice black dress if I’m trying to tone down the look, and we all know Converse are a must! Every girl (or person for that matter) needs a pair or two or three. Now lets talk about this basic grey dress that is NON-maternity…ladies it is ONLY $27!! Yes, such a steal from Target + I have two other colors!! This is the perfect summer dress. I have dressed it up with a blazer + heels like here…or down with my denim jacket + tennies. Do yourself a favor and go snag one!! (these sold out fast awhile ago) Last but not least, we all need a good basic colored purse that goes with everything. I usually like to switch up my purses quite a bit, but I have honestly not changed out my purse for over a year and half!! That’s just how much I love this grey purse!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend with your people!! And I just want to thank you so much for taking the time to stop by…it truly means a lot to me!! Happy Weekend!
So we are SEVEN weeks away from meeting baby #4!! I seriously can’t believe it is getting so close! The little people asked yesterday if we could start looking through all the baby items we have so far, and of course I was more then happy to bust them out. Hunter asked why everything we had was grey?! Haha. I kinda was thinking the same thing + this not finding out the gender is starting to get hard. We all can hardly wait to find out if this baby is a boy or girl, but until then “gender neutral” it is. Here are just a few of my favorite baby items…some we have and some I am still needing to get. If there is anything I am missing or need to add to my list please leave a comment + let me know what this baby needs! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Check out this post for the most “Chic Diaper Bags”.
I am so excited today to be teaming up with the ladies of Pure Fit Pure Food, Brecke and Devrie. They have some of the most fabulous + easy healthy recipes for you and your family! Not to mention great fitness plans to fit each of our individual needs…since we are all different and want to go at different paces. I am actually using some recipes from their Meal + Movement Plan that I love!! This plan also comes with a step by step fitness program that I am excited to start full force once baby is here. (I have been doing a few exercises that I can pregnant, or that my doctor has okayed) and they have helped keep me in shape during this pregnancy. I mentioned to Brecke and Devrie my love/cravings for healthy smoothies right now and they were fabulous enough to share a new recipe with us!!
Also…you can get 20% off the “REAL” program by using the code : KAILEE20
This smoothie is the perfect post workout fuel – it is ideal to consume within 45 minutes after a really intense workout (long/hard sprints, circuit/interval training/HIIT, or cross fit type workouts)…the type of workout you know you’ll be sore from. Or in my situation just consume anyday + everyday! Haha. Enjoy!

the gold standard for muscle repair as it is absorbed quickly by recovering muscles. Be sure to always choose high quality with minimal ingredients.
So I have been wanting to add some more color into my family’s everyday life. Over the weekend my mom was in town, and as we were cleaning up breakfast…I thought why not just grab some colored dishes for everyday?! So later that day off to the mall we went. We stopped by Anthropologie and I about died over these bowls + these!! My kids had read my mind and were already calling/assigning everyone in the household a color. Of course I had to snag every color! I seriously love them + my kids have loved helping wash and put the dishes away. Happy Monday friends!!
I have been loving all the picks /choices for diaper bags out there! You don’t have to sacrifice your style for sensibility when it comes to buying a bag. I fell like diaper bags have come along way, even since my last baby almost 4 years ago. Now they are so modern + sleek and well just fabulous looking! I like to stick with neutrals so it goes with any outfit and can be used for your future babes, but I also love color and bright colors at that!!! So I always have a hard time deciding. If you like color I recommend Petunia Pickle Bottom bags – there’s so many fun prints + styles to chose from. This Marc Jacobs bag is 40% off and has amazing reviews – snag it on sale while you can! I’m loving this grey bag, but not sure I can bring myself to splurge. Tell me your favorites or diaper bags you haven’t liked…all opinions + help wanted. Thanks so much friends!!
Also, there is a fun giveaway going on over on my Instagram (@kailee_wright)…for one of you lovely ladies to win a Petunia Pickle Bottom bag of your choice!!
