Friday Favorites: SUPER-SIZED Edition

It’s a SUPER-SIZED edition of my Friday Favorites!

I don’t know what it is…but I wrote down a lot of fun and favorite things this week PLUS, Nordstrom reached out and asked if I wanted to share some of my favorite gifting ideas today and since basically all of these things would make great gifts, that was an easy partnership to say YES to!!  As always, I’m linking up with my girls  AndreaErika and Narci and sharing everything I love with you today.  I’m so happy that it’s FRI-YAY!

Obviously, a favorite of mine this week are the Disney recaps that we’ve done.  If you’ve missed any of them, you can catch them here: PART ONE, PART TWO, and PART THREE.  I just got home from vacation, but these posts have me itching to go back 🙂 .

If you know me, then you know how much I value skin protection…which is why my name is Shay and I have 8 billion beach hats.  Whether you need to grab you a hat for this summer or if you know someone who is a skin protector like me, any of these hats would be great gifts too.  Plus, they’re all super, super cute and under $30!  Just see…

I love you floppy beach hat #1.

And you too beach hat #2.

You might be my fave beach hat #3.   And pssssst: my cover-up is HERE.

One of my favorite gifts to give…plus things to wear…are cute earrings.  I’ve been telling you ladies about these new ones from Kendra Scott because they’re actually light (unlike many of her other ones).  I wore them on this night…

…with my cute red dress and heels, but you can’t see them.  Here is a good pic of them though…

…so pretty and LIGHT.  Thank you, Kendra Scott for finally making light (but big) earrings!

Did you see my post on canning?!  I did not expect so many great comments from you girls!!  THANK YOU!!!

If you missed this post, go back and read the comments.  I am super pumped thanks to you ladies!!

Look what I scored for 50% off!

Hello, summer.  I’m ready for you.  These wedges arrived this week and I’m obsessed!!  Plus, at 50% off, I feel like I am totally #winning.  If you’re looking for a similar shoe with a lower heel, I found these too.

We love, love, love when LoweCo. brings out these…

Cards that Grow!!!

Have you seen my uber-talented sister-in-law’s cards that you can plant and then a wildflower grows?  They are so stinkin’ cute!!  Kensington thinks it’s just about the most fun thing EVER!  Check them out HERE.

Looking for an Easter dress?  I wore this one to church last week and after I got home was like “Why didn’t I save that for Easter?”…

…cute, right?!  And comfy too 🙂 .

Look how cute this stack of bracelets is…

…I was so pleased with them when they arrived!  For $38, you get five bracelets...

…here is the backside of the bracelets.  You can wear them all together or separate them out.  I thought this would make a super cute gift to give for a graduation this May or even Mother’s Day.  I bought the gray stack, but there is a blue stack too.  Fun little bracelets to get, gift, or give.

And since we’re obviously talking Nordstrom gifting today, my favorite thing to give from them is…

…is a good old-fashioned gift card.  You can even send e-gift cards directly to people straight from Nordstrom (which is typically what I do when I host a giveaway!).  They make gift giving easy which is why they’re my go-to for presents 🙂 .

Wrapping up today…

Everything Easter

…it’s my Everything Easter post!

From breakfast ideas (like Resurrection Rolls!) to sides that go perfectly with your Easter supper, sweet treats and more.  See all of the yummy recipes HERE.

I hope you all have a great weekend!  See you on Monday. xo

    Those bracelets are CUTE!! And such a great gifting idea at that price point!

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams March 23, 2018 at 5:41 am

    Those KS earrings are my favorite! You looked so good in all those beach hats, I have one I bought on Block Island, RI over 5 years ago that I always wear because it fits me perfectly. Have a great weekend!

    Love all these! How do you travel with your hats? The one time I tried to fly with a hat in my bag it got bent.

    • Mix and Match Mama March 23, 2018 at 6:07 am

      With a prayer 🙂 . I stacked them together and then carefully packed everything around them in the suitcase (under them and on the sides).

  • Shan Rocha March 23, 2018 at 6:05 am

    Love the Easter dress, looks fabulous on you ! Happy weekend 🙂

  • Nichole March 23, 2018 at 6:12 am

    Do these hats actually stay on your head? I have such a problem with them blowing off on the beach that I bought a super ugly hat with a strap! 😂

    • Mix and Match Mama March 23, 2018 at 6:20 am

      Well, I have a big head, so they fit nice and snug 😉 .

      • Nichole March 23, 2018 at 6:31 am

        Same on the head. I measured mine one time for a hat that was “one size fits most” and my head was outside of the limits. 😂

      • Cathy March 23, 2018 at 7:12 am

        Me too – so this cracked me up. LOL. Big headed people unite.

  • Narci Dreffs March 23, 2018 at 6:15 am

    You looked adorable in that dress on Sunday!! And, your rock a floppy hat?, friend!! Happy Friday!!

  • Alexis deZayas March 23, 2018 at 6:59 am

    I’ve been checking out the spring shoes at Nordstrom also. They have such a great selection. Those are really cute!

  • Emily March 23, 2018 at 8:00 am

    Speaking of sun and skin…I recently had a facial and the cosmetologist applied a tinted spf at the end. I loved it and discovered it was also a brand my dermatologist carries. It’s a “smart” shade so it automatically matches your skin tone. She said she’s used it in all complexions from light to dark and uses just it as her tinted moisturizer or foundation. Here is the link – kinda pricey but a little dab is all you need. Plus it’s spf 45! My dermatologist is hosting a sale day next month so I plan to purchase it then and can’t wait.

  • DANIELLE K RIGG March 23, 2018 at 8:11 am

    Thanks for always sharing your Friday Favorites. I love the cards, just clicked the link and purchased them 🙂 I also love the bracelets & earrings. Have a wonderful weekend.

  • Sarah Shaneyfelt March 23, 2018 at 9:11 am

    I’m a huge fan of beach hats! I definitely want to protect the skin on my face as much as I can. And love that dress you have on!

  • Emily March 23, 2018 at 9:14 am

    What color nail polish is that you’re wearing? White color! I love it!

    How do you store your beach hats?!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 23, 2018 at 12:52 pm

    Great faves! I’ve loved seeing all your vacation recaps and we want to start planning one now! In the mean time, our family is itching to take a weekend somewhere just to enjoy one another, slow down and have fun! Any great, last minute and kid friendly ideas for a fun getaway? I live in Michigan! Thanks!! 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama March 25, 2018 at 5:30 am

      Have you done Chicago with your kids? That’s one of my favorite cities!

  • Nicole March 25, 2018 at 5:48 am

    NO! But I was just looking that up!! Any specifics or tips? Would you stay in a hotel or AirBnB? Thanks so much!!!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 25, 2018 at 6:28 am

      In Chicago, I would probably do a fun hotel with a view. Your kiddos would love that!!

  • erin March 26, 2018 at 9:55 am

    Can you tell me where you ordered your Fenway park t-shirt i saw in your instagram stories?

    • Mix and Match Mama March 26, 2018 at 12:01 pm

      It was a gift! I’m sorry! I don’t know where they got it.

  • cassie {hi sugarplum} March 26, 2018 at 10:48 am
