Live Sale & WINNERS!!!

Friends, today is the day!!

I’m so PUMPED!

Today, the Anniversary Sale goes LIVE to everyone PLUS, I’m announcing the four winners of my giveaway this week!

All week, you guys have been entering this…

Anniversary Sale Giveaway

…and today, I’m picking the winners.

Ready? Set?  Here we go!

Congratulations to…


I emailed all four of you this morning!  Hurry and email me back and I’ll send you out an e-gift card TODAY!!

Okay…if you’ve been following along on Instagram then you know, Andrew and I are in Nantucket this week enjoying some kid-free time, so I’m going to be really lazy and just re-post my faves from the Anniversary Sale on Monday here today.  This way, if you weren’t a card holder and couldn’t shop earlier in the week, you can shop now.  Many things have been re-stocked, so make sure and check!

Happy Friday from me to YOU!  Here’s my post again from Monday so you can see what I loved from this year’s sale.

Sending you love from Nantucket!


I always shop the sale the same way every year: I buy good quality fall stuff for me and I also buy Christmas gifts for my family and friends.  Christmas?  In July?  Yes!  Because come December, I LOVE pulling out my stash of stuff that I already bought for my favorite girls.  I feel like a total superhero at the moment :).

Because I’m a Nordstrom card holder, I shopped online last week and my stuff was delivered to my house (because with free shipping and free returns, why would I take my 4 kids to the mall?!).

Now, if you see something you love but it isn’t in stock in your size/color, come back and check on Friday (and then again after that).  History tells me that they do restock items.  Most of the items are going to be sold all fall and winter long (especially boots!), so if you don’t see your size/color, make sure you check again.  I also want to say, that the things I ordered that I did not love, aren’t on here.

Here we go…
1. My favorite items for the Anniversary Sale
2. My favorite gifts for Christmas
3. A giveaway where FOUR of you will win at the bottom!

Let’s kick things off with…

this cute sleeveless top.  I love sleeveless tops in dark colors like this because they transition so well from summer to fall!  Even in September, when the weather is warmer but you’re tired of the bright/summery tops, this will look like fall without making you hot.  This top comes in one other color pattern and I bought it in an xsmall.

This one makes me so happy!

Now, I bought five pairs of jeans but am returning four of them…including this pair.  I LOVED the fit and fabric of this pair (which is why I’m showing you), but for this 5’3″ girl, they were a bit too long.  If you are a little taller than me, I highly recommend them though!  I also bought three pairs of booties this time and will return two of them.  I am keeping these because I LOVE THEM!  Look how cute they are?!  I’m obsessed!  They come in two other colors.  I bought them in an 8 which is my normal size.

One pair of simple gold earrings for the win this Anniversary Sale!  They’re light, they’re easy to wear and they’ll go with everything!

And a dainty little bracelet too 🙂 .  This would be an excellent Christmas gift!

I topped it all off with a leather jacket.  Now, I do not need another brown leather jacket (my go-to in life), but I couldn’t resist ordering this one, and I don’t think I’ll return it.  The leather was so soft and the fit perfection.  It also comes in black but brown is my fave 🙂 .  And for only $11, I topped it all off with…

a leopard scarf.  I mean, YES!!!!

I love light scarves like this because it looks like fall…but it’s not heavy and bulky!  And for only $11, it will make an excellent Christmas gift!!  I bought this leopard scarf this year along with…

this cute one too!  This scarf is black and dark red.  It’s a little heavier than the other one, but boy, it’s cute!! I was really thrilled with both scarves this year!  Underneath that cute top up there, I’m wearing one of those camis that I wear EVERY DARN DAY!  I have talked more about those camis than any other garment I own.  I love them.  I wear either white, black or navy just about every day.  So, when I bought a pair of workout leggings from the sale but not a top…

…I just paired it with the cami I already had on 🙂 .  These leggings are like buttttttttter.  Me oh my oh!  I am going to look so cute and be so comfy doing yoga.  Or let’s be real, sitting around my house because yoga pants like this are my preferred choice over really getting dressed 😉 .  I bought these in an xsmall.

These give me all the happy feels!  Speaking of which…

…how cute is this top?!  It comes in four colors, but I thought the red rumba just screamed FALL!

Isn’t it too cute?  They call it a “tee” online, but I think it leans more sweater.  It’s like a sweater and a tee had a baby…this would be the baby.  It’s lighter than a heavy sweater, but not thin like a tee.  So, I took off the other jeans (even though I loved them!), and put these on instead…

…that cute hem HAD ME!  This is the pair of jeans that I kept.  They are comfy, they are stretchy, they are more mid-rise (so my undies are showing!), and the length was great!  Pair it with those booties and I’m good to go!  Speaking of good to go…

this sweater is only $35 and it is SO SOFT!

I was actually blown away by how soft this is.  I am uber sensitive to itchy sweaters (something my mom has heard me complain about for 36 years), but this one was so soft and not itchy AT ALL!  Can’t you see me this winter?  Jeans, booties, sweater, repeat!  Speaking of which…

…give me ALL THE FLEECE TOPS.  You already know that about me…

…this is my uniform in life.  This cozy top comes in six colors, but they gray and white stripe had me.

Now, this top surprised me!  I bought it in purple surprise, but it comes in other colors too.  I thought it was darling!

Looks cute with those earrings

…and the booties too!  This sweater isn’t heavy, so I see myself able to wear it right when fall begins!

I bought one more of those sleeveless tops for fall.  It’s cute, it’s darker, it’s sleeveless…it will work for fall even on warm days.

This top also comes in red, but I loved the black.

Thennnnnn…I paired this top with gray jeans and some cute wedge booties.  I loved the jeans so much, but they were a little too long for me, so I’m sending them back, but they really were so soft and comfortable.  If the length would have worked, I would have kept them in a heartbeat.  The price will shoot up in a few weeks, so now is the time!   I loved the booties too…

…so cute, right?!  I decided I only needed to keep one pair from the sale, so even though I loved them, I picked the gray ones instead.  This pair does come in other colors though!

All so cute!  Someone hand me a pumpkin spiced latte.  STAT!  I’m ready for fall!

Want to know what surprised me most from the sale?  These next two things…

this dress right here!  I’m obsessed!!  It is just so cute!!

I don’t know?  I was really not expecting much, but I love this one!

If your size is already sold out, come back.  I bet they get it restocked!

And go ahead and get ready…

…to see me in this dress 100 times over the next six months.  This dress was my FAVORITE thing from the sale!  Now, it’s out of stock right now…but since it’s Madewell, I’m just really thinking it will be back in stock ASAP!  It’s soft, it’s cotton, it’s not too shear, it’s PERFECTION!


I paired this dress with these peep toe booties right here.  Aren’t they cute?  I think I’m going to return them…but they are so darn adorable!!  Peep toe is the perfect transition shoe for fall!

Love 🙂

Here’s a close up of all three pairs of booties…

…the wedges…

…the peep toes…

…and my favorite, these 🙂 .

Now, there are a ton of great beauty buys in the sale.  Like seriously, SO MANY GOOD THINGS!!  Remember me telling you how much I love the eyelash stuff that makes them grow in so long and thick?  IT’S IN THE SALE!! I bought these two things…

this Bobbi Brown Deluxe Cheek and Eye Set which has a value of $380, but is on sale now for under $100.  I was waaaaaay impressed with this set!  They are full sized eye shadows, a bronzer, a shimmer bronzer and two blushes in one cute case.  I also snagged this from Bobbi Brown…

this mini glow set!

You can see all of the discounted beauty items (from skincare to hair to makeup and more!) HERE.

Now, it wouldn’t be an Anniversary Sale if I didn’t buy pjs

…how cute are these?!  I took a few pics at night before I went to sleep and then a few more the next morning.  PJ Salvage is my favorite brand of pajamas and these are super, super cute!  They come in four patternsPJs and robes are my go-to Christmas gifts (like my blardigan which is on sale!).

Speaking of pjs…look at these!!

Eeeeks! Aren’t they so cute?!  Kensington still wears the PJ Salvage pajamas from last year’s sale, so I bought her a fresh new pair and Ashby one too.  You can see all the slippers from Nordstrom HERE.  Slippers and pjs make great Christmas gifts for kiddos too!

Looking for great Christmas gift?  The home section of the sale is FILLED with them!  From Moscow Mule cups to monogrammed cutting boards, I was super impressed by this department!  Just look…

Andrew got online and shopped the sale himself.  He purchased everything from shoes to body wash…

I’m going to do a whole post soon on back to school stuff, but in the meantime, these were my faves in the sale…

And then look at these outfits here…

…eeeeeeks!  So cute!!!  The dresses, the leggings and the shoes all make me so happy!

Whew!  So much goodness, right?!  Anyone else ready for fall now?

I saw this on Pinterest and it made me laugh so hard!

That’s it for today!  I will see all of you ladies back here on Monday!!

    I had a feeling y’all were heading back to Nantucket! Eat at the Boarding House for me, and don’t forget your nightly ice cream at The Juice Bar!

  • Kathy Wood July 20, 2018 at 8:23 am

    I received the button tee yesterday in my normal size. I love the tee but I’m indecisive with the fit of the neckline. I knew when I ordered that I would need a strapless bra. They don’t have an xsmall at this time for me to try. How did the neckline work for you?

    • Mix and Match Mama July 20, 2018 at 12:59 pm

      I bought an xsmall and am wearing a strapless bra with it!

  • Angela Ellingson July 20, 2018 at 9:31 am

    What a dream to be on a getaway with your hubby in Nantucket! Congrats to the winners – luckies! I’m going to grab a pair of the unicorn PJs for my daughter. She will love them.

  • Kristen July 20, 2018 at 10:45 am

    Help…i am back to school shopping. what is the best thermos to use for sending lunches? I know I have seen in some of your posts the kids cups you use but can’t remember if you ever listed what kind they are?

    • Mix and Match Mama July 20, 2018 at 12:59 pm

      We use the Pottery Barn Kids one for school!

  • Leanne Gilchrist July 20, 2018 at 10:55 am

    I’m so happy for the winners, yep, and a bit envious!! LOL! I’m glad the sale is open to anyone now….I’ve got some things in my bag!! Have fun in Nantucket!!

  • Leigh L July 20, 2018 at 6:35 pm

    This is an odd question…but where did you get the pillows on your bed (the faux fur ones)? They are beautiful!

    • Mix and Match Mama July 21, 2018 at 6:40 am

      Pottery Barn 🙂

  • Emily July 21, 2018 at 10:21 am

    Just so you know I am only commenting on this because I found it hilarious and like something I would do (not to make fun!) but I died when you were talking about how much you loved your mid-rise jeans because they showed your undies. I assume you meant because your undies aren’t showing?? Haha again, not making fun I just found it so funny!
