Tuesday Talk: Bows & Clothes

Happy Tuesday!

Once a month, I link up with Ashley and Erika who host Tuesday Talk.

For this link up, you are supposed to chat about anything and everything.

In January, we chatted about whether or not I should keep my home phone.  (You overwhelmingly told me TO keep it!)

In February, we chatted about preparing for sitters at your house.

In April, we chatted about a book I read called Unstuffed.

In May, we chatted about what TV shows are good for kiddos.

And today, we’re chatting about BOWS & CLOTHES.

I get asked a lot about my girls’ clothes and their hair bows, so today, I thought I’d share my sources because as much as I want to pretend it’s not happening…back to school will be here before we know it and you might need already be looking for bows and clothes to kick off fall.

What gave me the idea for this particular post today was that last Wednesday, Matilda Jane (where I buy the majority of my girls’ clothes) unveiled their new back to school line and then at the same time, my cousin Casey (who owns One Stop Bow Shop) posted these pictures on her site and social media…

Isn’t that so cute?!  She made bows to correspond to the new Matilda Jane line.

(You know you’re a girl mom when that excites you!)

Right now, Casey is offering 20% off all orders with code: shay20  .  She said this code will go through July 31 with free shipping on all orders over $20.  Sounds like a good deal, right?!

So, since today is supposed to be a random post about anything, this is mine 🙂 .  If you want to order bows from Casey, you can find her shop’s website HERE and she is even a Matilda Jane rep, so you can order some cute back to school clothes for your girls (ages birth to even adult clothes!) HERE.

Bows, clothes and back to school…


…I sure love my three little bow heads!

  Happy Talk Tuesday!

    I love the bows! Growing up, my favourite Powerpuff Girl (ha ha) was Blossom and I always wanted a huge, red bow like her’s!

    I have two girls and we love bows as well! I feel like now with two there are so many!! How do you store bows for all 3?

    • Mix and Match Mama July 18, 2017 at 5:48 am

      In big baskets in their closet!

    I love your earrings in this pictures

  • Sheaffer Sims July 18, 2017 at 5:57 am

    Your girls can ROCK a bow.

  • Kerri July 18, 2017 at 6:21 am

    I am sad now that my 9 year old doesn’t want to wear bows anymore. 😢Bracing myself for the tween years!

  • Narci Dreffs July 18, 2017 at 6:27 am

    Casey makes the best bows! We love her bows!

  • Lizzie @ This Happy Life July 18, 2017 at 6:39 am

    I love your cousins bows!!!

  • Erika Slaughter July 18, 2017 at 7:04 am

    Casey is the queen of bows! I love that she’s matching MJ!

  • Morgan Godbold July 18, 2017 at 7:05 am

    Do all your girls wear the same size bow? If not which sizes do you get them?

    • Mix and Match Mama July 18, 2017 at 7:22 am

      My big girls wear XL Jumbo and Madeley wears the smallest of the grosgrain bows!

  • Caroline July 18, 2017 at 7:12 am

    My Emmie is a bow girl. We wear bows everywhere (including to the pool) because why not? 😂 Not a big fan of MJ’s prints/all the mixed fabrics/ruffles BUT those apple dresses are to freaking die for!!!

  • Kim Nations July 18, 2017 at 7:27 am

    Love these bows. Thanks for the heads up that she is a MJ representive. Your girls are so cute in these bows and clothes.

  • Erica @ Whimsical September July 18, 2017 at 7:28 am

    I’ve ordered SO many bows from Casey throughout the last two years. They are my absolute favorite! They stay in better than any others we’ve tried and they hold their shapes perfectly. My oldest daughter is almost four now, so I need to get some bigger ones!

  • Laura @ Laura Likes Design July 18, 2017 at 7:41 am

    These are all so cute — I hope I have little girls one day!


  • Michelle C July 18, 2017 at 7:49 am

    OMG…TOO cute!! I miss having little girls to dress up. My daughters are 18 and 20…I don’t think they would go for it.

  • Brenda July 18, 2017 at 8:04 am

    Best bows we’ve had! We even wear them in the pool to keep her long bangs out of her eyes & they dry looking like new!

  • Lisa D July 18, 2017 at 8:20 am

    Darling clothes and bows! Your girls always look adorable in you pics.

  • Angela Ellingson July 18, 2017 at 8:27 am

    Precious!! Looking at Casey’s website, she has so many different types of bows/headbands. Love it!

  • jackie carson July 18, 2017 at 8:28 am

    I’ve been buying her bows since you very first introduced us all to her years ago! They are by far the best quality! We always get compliments on them and I’ve referred many friends. Thanks for sharing!

  • heidi July 18, 2017 at 8:36 am

    Enjoy those bows days in the blink of an eye they are all grown up wahh

  • Staci Patyrak July 18, 2017 at 8:38 am

    First of all…such cute items! I see some shopping in my future. Do you have a go-to regarding shorts to wear under dresses? I’ve got one going into Kinder and one going into PreK and its for sure time to make sure that anytime they wear dresses, they are covered so that they can play, play, play to their heart’s content! Also, I LOVE your blog!

    • Mix and Match Mama July 18, 2017 at 12:20 pm

      Yes!!!! My favorites are from Monkey Bar Buddies!! monkeybarbuddies.com 🙂

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams July 18, 2017 at 8:54 am

    I have loved all the outfits and bows I’ve seen on your blog! I can’t wait to have a little girl some day to put all those pretty bows in her hair lol. Thanks for sharing!

    My daughter will not keep a bow in her hair once she realizes they’re there. I can’t even pull her hair in ponytails if we’ll be driving because she hates the feeling of then against her car seat. Any tips for me?


  • Erin Hunt July 18, 2017 at 10:35 am

    Do you get yours with the clip or slide?

    • Mix and Match Mama July 18, 2017 at 12:19 pm


  • Erin July 18, 2017 at 4:24 pm

    Such great quality! We got a bow box from them! I just wish my oldest would wear bows! Your family is precious! Xoxo erin

  • Britt Hensley July 18, 2017 at 5:38 pm

    We love being a part of Casey’s team. The bows are perfection on so many levels!! #bowmama

  • Whitney Pegram July 18, 2017 at 5:45 pm

    SO SO cute!!!

  • Fenny July 18, 2017 at 10:10 pm

    Are these bows a Texas thing? I don’t really get it. I think they take away from their beautiful little faces. I don’t mind the smaller ones but some of the bows are so big. I really haven’t seen anything like it here in Canada. Unless you’re a competitive cheerleader. Just curious. Your family is beautiful!

    • Mix and Match Mama July 19, 2017 at 5:05 am

      Ha! Yes, I believe it’s a Southern thing :).

  • Natalie July 18, 2017 at 10:50 pm

    Love the bows…. the girls always look so sweet with them…Shay where is your shorts and black shirt from in this post ? love them both.. Thank you so much…

    • Mix and Match Mama July 19, 2017 at 5:05 am

      They’re both from Nordstrom!

  • Olivia Snyder at Joyfully Prudent July 19, 2017 at 4:54 pm

    I typically don’t read posts like these (#boymom), but we’re welcoming our first girl this Fall and I’ve never been more excited about bows and dresses.

  • Cici July 19, 2017 at 9:49 pm

    Love these bows! Thanks for the code. What size bows do Kensington and Ashby sport?

    • Mix and Match Mama July 20, 2017 at 6:40 am

      XL Jumbo

  • Britt July 27, 2017 at 9:55 pm

    Love the giant bows! I hope to have a girl one day to buy bows for! Yes it’s def a southern thing & one of my favorites (along with smocked clothing & bubbles on babies!) mj is new for me, as I don’t love the mixed patterns/too big of Ruffles on little ones but I’m loving the women’s line so far and I’m sure if I do ever have a baby girl, I’ll learn quickly all about mj. So great that your cousin matched bow colors to new line! Your family is beautiful! Even non bow wearing smith & Andrew ☺️
