June Pin-spired

It’s June Pin-spired!  Mel, Sheaffer and I are sharing how we are getting inspiration from Pinterest to get styled this month.  Speaking of Mel…today is her birthday!!  Happy Birthday sweet friend!!  I hope you have THE BEST day!!!
Here’s the thing about Pin-spired this month…it’s June in Texas…all I wear from June 1 to August 31 in Texas is a swimsuit.  It is just so stinkin’ hot!  Goodness!  The kids and I wake up and go from pjs to swimsuits and then back to pjs at night…it’s just too hot to do anything else.
That being said, on the rare occasion that I do find myself in dry clothes this month, I thought I’d show you what kind of clothes that might be.  Here are 3 different looks for me in June.  Happy Pin-spired!
Look #1: Long tee with shorts and a scarf!
I like this look because if I’m wearing shorts (especially shorter ones), I feel like I need to balance it with a longer length tee on top (and even a fun scarf too!).  I really liked both of these looks!  I didn’t use my leopard scarf in my version, but you know how much I heart my leopard scarf
…love this scarf people.  And right now, it’s on sale for less than $9 :).
Anyway…I used a floral scarf to recreate this look…

…this is my summer uniform.  Even though it’s warm outside, it’s always freezing indoors, so the scarf and longer tee seem to work (and they balance out my shorts).  This Pin-spired look is from my closet and other than the shorts, none of it from this season, but I recreated the look below with items available now…
Look #2: The flowy top!
I’m kind of obsessed with all of the flowy tops I keep seeing on Pinterest!  Love these!
I recreated the look with my flowy tops and both jeans and shorts…
  All you need is a good tank, some shorts or jeans and a flowy top and you’re ready for June!  (White jeans would be super cute with this too!)
Look #3: Wellies and Shorts!
If we’re going to get rain during the summer, it’s in June.  When June rain showers hit, I have to get out of my swimsuit and into my Wellies…and shorts!  I’m all over shorts with Wellies!

My feet stay dry walking through puddles but I’m not hot in a bunch of heavy layers and pants…shorts and Wellies are the perfect solution sometimes.  Wellies do not come in half sizes, so if you’re a half size, I recommend going down.  I normally wear an 8, so my Wellies are also 8s…but if I were a 7.5, I would go down to a seven.

Last month for Pin-spired, I was loving my boyfriend shirt with the orange shorts…but this month, I’m loving it with the green :).  I love how the same shirt works month after month after month!
That’s it for June Pin-spired!  I keep thinking about what I’m going to wear for July…and for some reason, this is all that keeps coming to mind…
…I’ll keep thinking…

    I love my wellies, they make me look forward to the rain. I purchased the jade color about a month ago and couldn't be happier.

    So funny that you mentioned your Wellies with your shorts!!! Knew that was a Shay thing!!

  • Sheaffer {Pinterest Told Me To} May 30, 2014 at 11:15 am

    You told me years ago how when you wear your short shorts that you like to balance it on top with a longer sleeve or layers, and I thought it was so smart. It really is a nice little formula to follow! And can I tell you something? I've still never done Wellies and shorts. GASP! Next time it rains, it's Wellies and shorts for me for sure!

    Love your style!! Where are your denim shorts from??

  • Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries May 30, 2014 at 3:04 pm

    Love your look – as always! I like the idea of a longer or flowy top with short shorts. I'd love to see some shorts outfits from you with tees or tanks too. I live in Phoenix where it's hot, hot, HOT during the summer and I need some ideas without feeling like I'm baring it all! πŸ˜‰

    I love your railroad-stripe JCrew shorts and your white flowy top!

    Love the 2 flowy tops you're wearing in the pics, can't seem to find them in the links, are they from Nordstrom as well?

    • Mix and Match Mama May 30, 2014 at 6:04 pm

      They're the Lush brand from Nordstrom. Mine are from last season but they make several varieties now too.

    I love your summer go-to outfit! I usually rock shorts, a tank, and then my denim jacket when I am not at work.

    And I can't wait to wear my wellies with shorts this year!

    Love these looks! Is the Gap boyfriend shirt no longer available? Also what size tanks do you wear from Gap? I seem to be the same size in clothes as you. Thanks!!!

  • Mix and Match Mama June 1, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    I wear a small in Gap tanks and I just checked that link in my blog and it pulls up all of their boyfriend shirts. Mine is from last season but there are several others!

    Thanks Shay!!! Xo

    Hi! I was wondering what size you take in the Lush flowy tops. I think my size would be comparable to yours, but because it's a junior fit, I'm not totally sure.

  • Mix and Match Mama July 19, 2014 at 3:23 pm

    I wear a small!
