And the winner is…


Today is the day!!

I’m announcing the winner of this…

Travel Giveaway

…one lucky person will receive a $3,000 Mix and Match Travel Agency Gift Card!

So, thanks to a great partnership with Nordstrom this month, I was able to give 10 lucky winners each $200 gift cards to shop their Anniversary Sale and now, we get to send someone on a vacation!

Let’s recap really quickly before we get to the winner.

First…it was my favorite picks from their sale


…like these bracelets and that dress.  These bracelets are still my favorite items from the Anniversary Sale and will totally look cute stacked up on my wrist come fall.

Then it was…

Favorite Makeup

my favorite makeup pieces that transition so well from summer to fall.  I love each and every one of them!

#1:  Lancome primer

#2:  Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks (Liv It Up//Bosworth’s Beauty// Kim K .W)

#3: Lacome waterproof eye liner   I use the cafe color but it comes in 22 other colors too.

#4: Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper

#5:  Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream.  I bought it in Light Neutral.

#6:  MAC’s in Sable

#7: MAC’s Haute & Naughty Mascara

#8:  NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (I bought it in Biscuit).

#9:  baked blushes by Laura Geller  I have been wearing the Sunswept color for years now.

So, today, we’re wrapping things up with a few fall pieces from Nordstrom that will transition from the hot muggy days into the cooler ones.

I mean…yesterday, I posted swimsuits and cover ups, so it’s not quite time for fall just yet…but we both know it will be here before we know it!

Speaking of which…have you seen my Fall Pinterest Board????

Doesn’t that just make you happy?!?!?!

So, I found a top that I LOVE and when it arrived, it was so cute and fit so well that I went ahead and ordered a second.  I threw it on with my AG jeans, my new open toe booties (because in my opinion, those are the best transitional summer to fall shoes!), that cami that I always wear and BAM!  A transitional outfit was born…


My jeans are from the Anniversary Sale (which just ended), but HERE are several other styles of AG jeans.  They’re so comfy.  Seriously, this brand makes the softest jeans!  And the booties come in three colors.  I bought them in French Taupe.


The top is made out of a really light material but the colors just look like FALL!  (There are extra size options for this top.  I bought it in an xsmall.)

Here are the other color choices…

Hinge Top

I also went back and bought it in Coral Floral Bunches.

So, if you’re in the mood to think about adding a few fall pieces to your closet, here are some other cute ones I saw that looked great for that transitional time of the year…


So, ready for me to announce our winner?

This lucky person will be receiving $3000 to apply towards a Mix and Match Travel Agency vacation to Walt Disney World, a cruise or Mexican all-inclusive departing in 2018.

Drum roll please….

And the winner is…

    For the Disney vacations are you an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner or is it through your travel agency? Debating on planning a Disney vacation for this fall.

    • Mix and Match Mama August 8, 2017 at 5:36 am

      I am! We would love to help you. Right now, we are working on vacations departing after October 1st.

  • Nicole August 8, 2017 at 5:47 am

    Will you be doing a back to school clothes and shoes for kids post? 😊

    • Mix and Match Mama August 8, 2017 at 5:49 am

      I’m going to try! I have to get my kids to figure out what they want/need first. It’s always so challenging, right?

  • Erika Slaughter August 8, 2017 at 5:48 am

    Congratulations, Elizabeth!! So excited for you!

  • Meredith August 8, 2017 at 5:53 am

    Congratulations to the winner! She is one lucky girl! I love the top you are wearing and also live the coral. I think I may order those this weekend. They are perfect for fall in FL.

  • Courtney August 8, 2017 at 6:04 am

    Congratulations to Elizabeth! I almost ordered that very same top – it’s adorable! Where else do you shop for Fall staples?

    • Mix and Match Mama August 8, 2017 at 6:25 am

      Loft and J. Crew are my other two faves! Gap can be sometimes too (it’s always hit or miss at Gap but I do think their fall stuff is typically their best stuff!).

  • Elspeth Mizner August 8, 2017 at 6:16 am

    Love all the items from the sale. It gave me some ideas of some new outfits to put together!

  • Kristine August 8, 2017 at 6:29 am

  • Alexis deZayas August 8, 2017 at 7:42 am

    I think I need that top in a couple of colors too! Fall clothes make me so happy!

  • Angelique August 8, 2017 at 7:57 am

    Congratulations to Elizabeth and to the rest of us for surviving the summer. Texas summers are rough, but I’m now counting down to pumpkin spice lattes and the appropriate time to pull out my favorite fall decorations. September 1st right? And, of course, congratulations to you Shay for 10 years of this fun blog in your little corner of the Internet! XOXO

  • Tiffani August 8, 2017 at 7:58 am

    Love your blog and thankful to start my morning with a positive vibe! Would love your assistance in our Disney Vacation coming up in October or am I too late!?

  • Natalie August 8, 2017 at 8:35 am

    You should do a post on why to use a travel agent. I really don’t know what the advantages are or what they do for you. 🙂

    • Kristy August 8, 2017 at 10:47 am

      I agree! Now with all the options and ease of doing it yourself online I’d like to know as well!

    • Ashley Doroff August 8, 2017 at 11:29 am


  • Angela Ellingson August 8, 2017 at 8:46 am

    Congratulations Elizabeth! Wow! What would you say is the best age to take kids to Disney World?

    • Mix and Match Mama August 8, 2017 at 1:05 pm

      Oh goodness…the first time I took my kids, I think they were 2 and 3 (or 3 and 4???). I would probably say the ideal age is after 4. That being said, it’s always happy there, so you really can’t go wrong, right?!

  • Carolyn August 8, 2017 at 9:11 am

    I agree with Natalie. I’ve never used an agency, and would like to know how they work. Do we pay your fee or do the facilities you use pay it? Congrats to Elizabeth. I’m trying not to be bitter about not winning. 🙂

  • Marian Emch August 8, 2017 at 9:14 am

    Love that top on you! I love that you post where you can get your clothes. Thanks for your sharing your Alaska trip. We’re leaving in a few weeks and what you did was so helpful.

  • heidi August 8, 2017 at 9:24 am

    How exciting! !!
    Oh I love floral top so pretty!

  • Kristy August 8, 2017 at 10:26 am

    Bachelorette thoughts from last night?

    • Mix and Match Mama August 8, 2017 at 1:04 pm

      It’s still on my DVR! Smith had a flag football game, so I didn’t watch it last night. I need to catch up now!

  • Patty August 8, 2017 at 11:42 am

    I like that idea too, Natalie!

  • Lisa Richardson August 8, 2017 at 12:00 pm

    Congratulations to Elizabeth. What a fun prize. Congrats on 10 years Shay. Here’s to another 10!

  • Allison A. August 8, 2017 at 5:20 pm

    Big Congratulations to Elizabeth!! That top is so cute on you and perfect for now or Fall. I think I might need to order that for me. Looks very comfy, too. I love summer but admit I am getting ready for Fall.

  • Kim August 8, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    Where is the rug in your closet from? I love it:) Congrats on 10 years!!!

    • Mix and Match Mama August 9, 2017 at 5:04 am

      It’s from Chip & Joanna Gaines’ collection online!

  • Bethany August 8, 2017 at 10:31 pm
