Fall Favorites with Nordstrom & Winners Announced!

Happy Friday, friends!

I’m super pumped that today is Friday because I have lots of fall fun in my future.

High school homecoming game, check.

Pumpkin patch, check.

Oktoberfest, check.

Fall family pictures, check.

Hocus Pocus with my fam, check.

Disclaimer: Andrew Shull would say fall family pictures are not something to look forward to.  I’m pretty sure it’s his worst nightmare…wearing layers, trying to get the kids to cooperate, trying to look your best while whispering “stop touching her” at the same time through clenched teeth, everyone smiling at the camera at the same time…it is pretty much a recipe for disaster 😉 .

Today, I’m also excited because I’m sharing the names of the two lucky ladies that won this…

…plus, Nordstrom asked me to share some of my fall favorites right now and since I already do that, it was an easy post to say yes to.  Because YES to all things fall!!!

First up, check out my new blazer and heels

I mean…those shoes, right?!  Can you say “holiday party”?!  I am going to be wearing the HECK out of these babies this December!  And then check out my new navy blazer.  It sure did jazz up a basic tee, right?  It also comes in black.  For a size reference, I bought myself a 0.  The jeans are from last year and they’re Current/Elliott.

Blazer, tee, jeans and fun heels.  Those are more than just fall staples…they’re good year around!

So, I couldn’t resist the patent red heels, but they come in 8 other colors too!  I ordered true to size and they fit great!

And look at these earrings!  They are shockingly light considering their size.  I thought they looked fun for fall too!

I thought this could be fun for the holidays!  Those black jeans that I talk about ALL THE TIME (because they are THE BEST and right now, they’re on sale!!!), red heels and this cute top with the tie sleeves.  This top comes in five colors, but I was drawn to the basic black.

See how cute the sleeves are?!  And the top wraps around.  I thought it was so flattering!

And then I topped it off with a furry leopard vest…because you can be excessive over the holidays, right?!

Oh I heart you leopard vest 🙂 .

And then one final top that just makes me happy…


…this was me yesterday.  This top right here is one I’m going to wear over and over again.  Soft, comfy and easy to wear.  I paired it with my jeans and these little flat booties that making running errands really easy (they’re so comfy!!).

There are zippers on both sides of the booties.  They come in three other colors too.  So cute!

You could also wear it with a scarf too…

I bought the top in black and white stripe, but look at the other colors…

…love these tops so much!

Here are a few other things I’m loving for fall right now at Nordstrom.  Just scroll and click…


And then, I thought these tops just screamed CHRISTMAS…

Yes.  Give me all the tartan plaid!  This same top comes in six different patterns.

Whew!  So many fall finds from Nordstrom this season!!  Okay…

…so, who are the big winners from my Simmers giveaway?!??!


The winners are…


Congratulations Meghan & Carla!!  You two will each receive an All-Clad slow cooker and all five of my cookbooks!!!  I emailed you both this morning.  You need to email me back ASAP!!

That wraps up my Friday.  I’m off to do some fun stuff! (Let’s be honest, that doesn’t start until later tonight…I’m really off to do laundry.)

Have the best weekend!

  • Erika Slaughter October 6, 2017 at 5:35 am

    Shay! The first outfit-blazer, red heels, white tee is so YOU! Why have you not been wearing that everyday of your life? I’m gonna expect to see that three days next week! Super cute!

    • Courtney October 6, 2017 at 5:49 am

      I agree with Erika! Such a cute outfit on you, and perfect for holiday parties or any other occasion that calls for something super cute! 🙂 Can’t wait to see your family pictures; sometimes the best ones are they ones were no one is looking at the camera!

  • emily @ a little bit of emily October 6, 2017 at 5:40 am

    I love those shoes!!! And how cute would they be paired with one of those tartan tops for Christmas?! Great finds!

  • Sarah Lewis October 6, 2017 at 5:41 am

    Love all the outfits! Wondering also about your phone case? ☺️

  • Angelique at FourPointsMom.com October 6, 2017 at 5:48 am

    My husband and Andrew would get along … he hates family photos. We’ve compromised and only take “real” ones every other year as a result. Your striped top looks so comfy! As someone else mentioned, I’m crossing my fingers for fall weather to join the fall season soon.


  • Paige Sullivan October 6, 2017 at 6:08 am

    Happy Weekend and GOOD LUCK with the family pic!!!

  • Narci October 6, 2017 at 6:16 am

    Woohoo for Friday!! That outfit is darling on you, friend! 🙂 See you soon for pictures!!

  • sydnee October 6, 2017 at 6:30 am

    Love all the great fall finds! I would love to see a tour of your new closet, or maybe I missed that post?!

  • Diana October 6, 2017 at 7:06 am

    Where did you get the rugs in your closet? Looking for something similar. Thanks!

    • Mix and Match Mama October 6, 2017 at 7:14 am

      I bought them online from Chip and Joanna Gaines’ collection 🙂 .

  • Karen October 6, 2017 at 7:12 am

    Love your dark nail polish! Please share brand and color. Thanks so much!

    • Mix and Match Mama October 6, 2017 at 7:14 am

      Essie’s After School Boy Blazer 🙂

  • Jill October 6, 2017 at 7:18 am

    I love the navy blazer, jeans, white tee and red shoes!! Amazing look! I also love that you said Andrew hates wearing layers, that made me laugh out loud!!!!! Good luck!

  • Alexis deZayas October 6, 2017 at 7:30 am

    You are rocking those red heels!! And those plaid tops do scream Christmas! Going to check them out now 🙂

  • Mary Hartz October 6, 2017 at 7:31 am

    Where do you store all your scarves?

    • Mix and Match Mama October 6, 2017 at 8:09 am

      They’re rolled up on shelves under my shoe shelves.

  • Melissa October 6, 2017 at 7:33 am

    We are taking family pics this weekend and I’m pretty sure my husband feels exactly the same way as Andrew. Every year he talks to the kids on the way to the session and says “this is a gift we all give your mom so PLEASE cooperate.” ; ) Here’s hoping we both have drama-free picture days!

  • Sarah October 6, 2017 at 7:38 am

    I’ve been after a cute plaid shirt for Christmas for years now and yours are perfect! Thanks for sharing!!

  • kellie carrara October 6, 2017 at 7:41 am

    Ohmygoodness…the fall photo shoot made me laugh! I try to get mine done in Oct/early Nov so that I can have the Christmas cards in the mail the day after Thanksgiving! And even in MA it’s hot, we’re in layers, husband is complaining about the amount of photos being snapped, daughter is fidgeting & being sassy and dog won’t sit still…and it’s just the 4 of us! I can’t imagine wrangling your crew! (But your family photos always turn out so cute!)
    Also, LOVING the fun mis-matched stripe tee, especially with the blanket scarf!
    We did pumpkin picking last weekend so this weekend is full-on fall decorating for us!

  • Caitlin October 6, 2017 at 7:41 am

    Where are the carpets in your closet from? Been looking for something just like them!

  • Sara Turner October 6, 2017 at 7:45 am

    Hi Shay! Love all these finds! What size do you get in the tops? The black one and black and white one?

    • Mix and Match Mama October 6, 2017 at 8:09 am


  • Laci October 6, 2017 at 7:47 am

    I can’t decide which one is my favorite!?!?! Those red heels are just SWOON worthy!! Love it all.

  • Amy October 6, 2017 at 7:49 am

    … So Melania inspired– Love!

  • Morgan Godbold October 6, 2017 at 7:52 am

    Can we please get an updated closet tour? 🙂

  • Jenny Jo October 6, 2017 at 7:54 am

    Shay, I’m in love with your closet #closetgoals. But how do you reach your jackets? Theyre so high up ha.

    • Mix and Match Mama October 6, 2017 at 8:09 am

      A ladder 🙂

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick October 6, 2017 at 7:56 am

    Girl!! You look amazing in that blazer!!! And those heels are so fun! I have that white plaid Christmas-y shirt and it’s so cute!! I’ve been eyeing that red one too. Perfect for Christmas!

    That Inspired Chick

  • Audrey Wiederholt October 6, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Love all the Nordstrom finds. I received your new cookbook and am so excited! Those red shoes are great and you reminded me of Olivia Newton John from Grease. Love it!!!

  • Amanda October 6, 2017 at 8:24 am

    Just love your style! I bought a pair of red patent heels this season too! They’re dark red and so gorgeous but oh so painful. Definitely only made for sit down events, ahah.

  • Sandy October 6, 2017 at 8:30 am

    Hi Shay, I love your fashion choices! I’ve always wondered, is there any rules or guidelines on choosing a scarf to go with an outfit? I always think mine have to be against a solid color so they match.

    • Mix and Match Mama October 6, 2017 at 12:57 pm

      I love to mix prints. That might be all wrong, but I like it ;).

  • Michelle W October 6, 2017 at 8:50 am

    Hi Shay. I was wondering what you thought of the new series 3 Apple Watch with cellular. I know you’ve had the series 1 and 2. I want to purchase an Apple Watch. I’m just not certain which one to get.

    • Mix and Match Mama October 6, 2017 at 12:57 pm

      I want to go to the store and play with it!! It sounds amazing!

  • Mary Woods October 6, 2017 at 9:00 am

    HI, what color lipstick are you wearing in your post? Thank you and Happy Friday:)

  • Laura Smith October 6, 2017 at 9:01 am

    Can you link your phone case? It’s so cute!

  • Lynn October 6, 2017 at 9:05 am

    Hi Shay!! I love those boots! What color did you get?! Its hard to tell…Also I’m usually a size 8 and I can’t decide what size to get! Any advice?!

    • Mix and Match Mama October 6, 2017 at 12:57 pm

      I bought “gravel” :). And I bought an 8 and I’m always an 8. I think they’re very true to size.

  • Meghan Rafferty October 6, 2017 at 9:30 am

    BEST. DAY. EVER. Thanks Shay!!! Can’t wait to try out all of your fabulous recipes!

  • Lisa October 6, 2017 at 9:48 am

    I received my copy of Simmers yesterday and can’t wait to dive in! I love all your Nordstrom picks, I’m currently 35 weeks pregnant so I’m doing nothing but dreaming of getting into some cute clothes soon(ish)! Where did you get your iPhone case? Obsessed!

  • shawnna October 6, 2017 at 9:50 am

    hey girl- love the post! cool clothes! Y’all have a great weekend!

  • Kristin Tate October 6, 2017 at 9:52 am

    The pumps are the most!! I love how they are the main attraction!

  • Heather K October 6, 2017 at 10:14 am

    Shay, have you ever recommended any belts? I despise wearing belts, but my post-pregnancy body requires them and I just can’t seem to find any that feel comfortable and fashionable. I need help!

    • Mix and Match Mama October 6, 2017 at 12:54 pm

      It’s been awhile! The last belt that I bought and loved was from Gap (I think it was summer 2016). I’m always on the search.

    • Tina October 9, 2017 at 3:25 pm

      I recommended Fossil brand belts! I have been wearing the same ones for years, without having to buy replacements! They’re classic and don’t go out of style and they hold up really well.

      • Tina October 9, 2017 at 3:25 pm


  • Erin October 6, 2017 at 10:31 am

    YES on that blazer! I have a coral-ish colored one from J Crew and wear it SO MUCH in the fall. And that was SUCH a fun giveaway! Disappointed I didn’t win but planning to buy Simmers for some girls as a fun gift on our next girls’ trip in January. The cover is GORGEOUS!

  • Whitney Pegram October 6, 2017 at 10:41 am

    Girlfriend, that blazer outfit with the red heels is amazing!! Happy Friday!

  • Tamra October 6, 2017 at 10:55 am

    Love those outfits and I am DROOLING over your closet. #closetgoals

  • Chrystianne Santos October 6, 2017 at 11:34 am

    So many questions about your closet. I think we need a closet tour lol. Needing some ideas to upgrade my tiny walk-in closet. Have a happy and safe weekend! 🙂

  • Jordan October 6, 2017 at 1:10 pm

    I would love to see the new closet makeover tour, for ideas! Your outfits are always so cute!

  • Justine @ Charm City Ciemny's October 6, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    Justine @ Charm City Ciemny’s

  • Lilly Gorman October 6, 2017 at 3:20 pm

    Yupp. I’ll take those pumps and that comfy sweater! So cute and perfect for this time of year. I’m in agreement with Andrew about the fall pictures… they really have me on the struggle bus this year. Love your nail polish, btw!


  • Corbie October 6, 2017 at 3:25 pm

    Is your watch band Navy or Black?? Do you still order them on Amazon??

    • Mix and Match Mama October 7, 2017 at 5:57 am

      It’s navy and it’s the one that came with my watch, so it’s from Apple.

  • Deanna Zehr October 6, 2017 at 5:44 pm

    Love the red heels! Have a fantastic weekend!

    Hey! I LOVE your nail polish color? What is it? It is perfect for fall and I have been looking for a new dark color. 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama October 11, 2017 at 3:03 pm

      It’s OPI Lincoln Park After Dark 🙂 .

  • Detroit Duchess October 12, 2017 at 11:46 am

    I love these looks with the red pumps! I have a BCBG pair that I need more looks for and I love this blazer/jeans pairing. My office has switched over to a dress for your day policy and I am usually more formal. This would be a good transition outfit.
