Friday Favorites: Cozy PJ Edition!

Hey there, Friday!

I hope you guys all had the best week!  Right now, I’m caught between that spot of trying to soak in every bit of cozy wintertime while also peeking ahead to spring.  Today, I’m going to enjoy a few more minutes of coziness as I partner with Nordstrom and ShopStyle and share some of my favorite sleepwear pieces for the season (let’s be real, as cold as Andrew keeps it in our house, I will be wearing these pajamas into the blazing hot summer!).  There’s nothing I love more than eating a carb-y dinner, taking my bath (this bubble bath is so indulgent and always my favorite!), putting on my warm pajamas and sitting down with a good show on Netflix (I just finished binge-ing Grace and Frankie…hysterical!!!).  I love a sponsorship that matches up my favorite things!!  So, I’m here today and linking up with my girls Erika, Narci and Andrea to share that and more!  Have a great weekend!

I posted this pic on Instagram last Saturday morning…

…in my kitchen, with my coffee, working on my favorite client’s vacation (ME!!!), the house smelled like bacon (see recipe below!!) and wearing…

my cozy blardigan, of course!  Guys!  NOTHING says cozy more than this cardigan.  I’ve been wearing these for years, but my favorite style is the COASTAL HOODED style.  I have it both in this sand color and also in black (it comes in 8 different colors).  My favorite part about this style is the nice deep pockets on the side.  Perfect for carrying around my phone and any other random things I need to fit in my pocket.  Look, I found myself with wild hair wearing it again later in the week…

…crazy hair and so cozy.  This time, I had it on with these super soft joggers and a black cami.  Of course, I was wearing my Ugg slippers because they are THE MOST WORN ITEM IN MY CLOSET!

The older I get, the more I want my pajamas to be “nice” and by nice, I mean “not an old ratty t-shirt with old ratty shorts”.  Over the last few years, I’ve really been trying to step up my pj came.  Look how cute these are…

…oh my word!  These are so soft, but they’re also so light (not thick and heavy!).  They slide on like butter.  I bought the navy stripe, but of course, they come in many other colors/patterns.  Again, wearing them with my Ugg slippers 🙂 .

Poppy came in to say hi 🙂 .

And give me a kiss…

…ahhhh!  Puppy love!

If you don’t love sleeping in pants, I also found these cute shortie pajamas at Nordstrom too.  Cute pajamas and cozy “inside” clothes are my faaaaaaavorite!

For the last 400 years that I’ve been blogging, I have told you about this robe right here

…I am literally wearing it and those Ugg slippers right this second as I type this sentence.  Hands-down, without a doubt, my very favorite robe.  I have gifted it to so many people over the years because it never disappoints.  It comes in many fun colors HERE too.

Here’s the thing about Ashby…it’s ALL HER ATTITUDE.  She just has the sunniest outlook, most positive and upbeat spirit, a “nothing’s going to get me down” view of things…it’s so inspiring.  To get to be her mom is such an honor because she encourages me EVERY DAY!!  This week, we had an evaluation with an occupational therapist to strengthen her…left hand.  We all focus so much on her right hand, that we haven’t, until now, focused on her left hand.  She is, by nature, a right-handed person, but since birth, has had to use her left hand for everything (and typically it works overtime because her right hand isn’t available for support), but after a few months in kinder, we have decided it’s time to strengthen that left hand, so we’re going to start doing weekly therapy.  She is just so excited about it, happy to go, and ready to practice.  Attitude.  She has the best attitude.

Did you see what sweet Narci posted on FB and Instagram this week?  She’s turning 40 this summer (I mean, she DOES NOT LOOK 40, right?!?!), and we’re sending her on a fun tropical vacation to celebrate with her hubby!  Turks, anyone?!  Yes, please!  We were so excited for them when they booked their trip through our agency this week!  If you want to go somewhere warm this year, give us a shout!  We would love to send you too!!  Maybe you can go with Narci and help her celebrate 😉 .

Lookin’ for a little #OOTD…

…love this top with my cami underneath, those AG jeans I wear all the time, the wedge sneakers and pretty earrings!

This top was cute to wear all day with my jeans, but will be cute in the spring with shorts too (I love a shirt that can be worn multiple seasons!).

I threw on my military jacket (exact one HERE) and hit the road!



I feel like all of these pieces can transition from winter to spring to summer and then back again in fall.

Remember how I mentioned bacon at the top of this post???  Um, I was making this…

Bacon Cheddar Croissant Casserole

…to bring to church the next morning for my friends in Sunday school.  Yes.  You need my BACON CHEDDAR CROISSANT CASSEROLE in your life this weekend.  Trust me.

Okay, that wraps up my Friday Favorites!  I hope you all have the BEST weekend!!! xoxo

    There’s nothing more relaxing than lounging around at home in PJs! Friday sounds perfect for that (too bad I still have a 9-6 job, haha). 🙂

    Eeeeeekkkkkkk!!!! I cannot wait for Narci to head out on her birthday vacation. They’re gonna have so much fun! And that breakfast casserole…I went back for seconds. At church.

  • Tanya February 22, 2019 at 5:34 am

    I predict that someday Ashby is going to write a best-selling motivational book featuring how to have an incredible attitude like hers. She’s amazing! Have a super weekend! Tanya – The Other Side of the Road

  • Sheaffer Sims February 22, 2019 at 5:43 am

    That Ashby. She’s a ray of light. Lover her and her disposition so much!

    Your pjs are so cute! I’m so sad right now because one of my blardigans is in the wash and the others are in my closet…behind sleeping puppies. So, I’m blardigan-less. And I’m sad.

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams February 22, 2019 at 5:44 am

    I love that OOTD! I like your earrings and hairstyle with it too 🙂 Those short set PJS are so cute and I need a pair for the spring/summer months when it’s hotter! Happy Friday Shay!

  • Narci February 22, 2019 at 6:00 am

    Go Ashby! She IS amazing! And, we seriously can’t wait to head to Turks! You girls took care of every detail! The best travel agents ever. 🙂

    • Monica February 22, 2019 at 9:22 am

      Make sure you make it to the Thursday night fish fry and a dinner at Grace’s cottage is a MUST!!

    • Erin February 22, 2019 at 10:34 am

      YESSSSS to Turks with Narci please!!!

  • Leslie Alexander February 22, 2019 at 6:12 am

    I see the W-S copper pot in the background of your kitchen pictures. That’s been on my wish list for quite some time. What do you think of it vs. Le Creuset or Staub? Review, please!

    • Mix and Match Mama February 22, 2019 at 7:28 am

      My mom bought it for me for Christmas. I don’t use it…I just love the way it looks. It’s too pretty to use. Ha!

  • Alexis deZayas February 22, 2019 at 6:41 am

    Ashby is making my OT heart smile this morning! Good luck to your sweet girl!

  • Brooke Richardson February 22, 2019 at 7:11 am

    That casserole was delicious. It’s all I can think about now

  • Kami Cekosh February 22, 2019 at 7:18 am

    Love every post! Heading to get those jeans now 🙂

  • Sue Jones February 22, 2019 at 7:21 am

    You are so stinking adorable. That is all. Have a wonderful weekend!!

  • Holly Sheridan February 22, 2019 at 7:34 am

    Yay for Ashby getting OT! I’m an OT, and I sure wish she were one of my kiddos!❤️ She will do great!

  • Dianna February 22, 2019 at 7:48 am

    I watched the first 3 episodes of grace and Frankie and it just not sold. Should I really keep going? I just finished New Girl and loved it. Have you watched it? I’m tempted to start it over again.

    • Mix and Match Mama February 22, 2019 at 8:47 am

      I think it gets even funnier and funnier with every season.

  • Lis February 22, 2019 at 8:16 am

    I know you’ve said in the past you can’t wear heavy earrings – are those kendra scott earrings lighter than her normal ones?? I’ve recently started having the same issue and can’t wear any of my fave kendra scott earrings anymore – but love those ones, so if they’re lighter than usual, I’m getting them!

    • Mix and Match Mama February 22, 2019 at 8:46 am

      I cannot. They are. I like these because they have a back on them. I’ve pretty much decided that I can only wear earrings with a back on the post.

  • Chrys February 22, 2019 at 8:22 am

    Hi Shay! Do you ever sleep with your Apple watch or do you ever just leave it on continuously until it needs to be charged? I have the first generation one and it dies in like 10 hours so I’m jealous of everyone that can wear their watches ALL DAY LONG, ha!

    • Mix and Match Mama February 22, 2019 at 8:46 am

      I don’t. I always use that time to charge it.

  • Liz February 22, 2019 at 8:30 am

    I just love Ashby’s attitude. We all need a someone like her to nudge us and remind us that life is a gift! Take it with laughter and smiles. And oh I need warm!! But we have upcoming surgeries ..David’s rotator cuff in March and my hysterectomy in April. But I am gonna need some of those cozy things!! Any excuse, right?

  • Amy February 22, 2019 at 9:04 am

    Hi I love all the cozy ideas! How did the stripe pj’s run? Did you need to go down a size?

    • Mix and Match Mama February 22, 2019 at 1:28 pm

      I bought xsmall in all of them, so I would say TTS.

  • Erin E Port February 22, 2019 at 9:23 am

    We are still in the thick of cozy season around here and those navy stripe PJs are calling my name. I can’t wait to pull out my military jacket. Loved that outfit and those earrings on you!!!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick February 22, 2019 at 12:40 pm

    You always look so adorable in your PJs! And I love that OOTD! And yes, that casserole was yummy!!

  • Kendra February 22, 2019 at 1:48 pm

    I love you Shay! You brought this casserole to people serving in Sunday School or for the kids? Just gotta know?! Such fun PJs thanks for sharing. So glad you posted the shorts because I LOVE pants but my legs are way too long for so many pj bottoms. Hugs

    • Mix and Match Mama February 22, 2019 at 2:16 pm

      Ah! I brought it for those people in my Sunday school class (of which, almost of them serve in the children’s building in our church!).

  • Mother of 3 February 22, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    That casserole looks amazing! Cute Pj’s too; I found a few pairs at Christmas time that I just loved and stocked up on them.

  • Missy February 22, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    Oh I hope Narci is staying at the Palms in T&C!!!! Just got back and it was FABULOUS!!!!! Wonderful service and beautiful rooms!!!!

  • Amy February 22, 2019 at 10:44 pm

    All the best with OT. I often recommend cooking, baking, dough work for hand strengthening for my clients…. (in so many ways) she sure is in good hands with a mama like you!

  • Keri Walden February 25, 2019 at 1:07 pm

    cute pjs! How FUN for Narci….she is the perfect SOUTHERN BELLE! My family and I LOVE T&C!

  • Francesca February 27, 2019 at 8:17 pm

    This pjs are so cute! Can I ask a semi dumb question? Do you wear clean pajamas every night or do you go a day or two between washing? I’m not really a sweaty sleeper… I guess I’m wondering what’s normal haha!

    • Mix and Match Mama February 28, 2019 at 5:03 am

      I really like putting on fresh pjs every night. When i’m traveling, I don’t pack one for every night though!!

  • Stacey March 9, 2019 at 2:56 pm

    Do you have to have your jeans hemmed? I ordered some AG jeans and they are a little longer than I would like.

    • Mix and Match Mama March 10, 2019 at 5:36 am

      Sometimes…but most of the time, no.

  • Casey Mussell March 16, 2019 at 5:38 pm

    I don’t know If this is the right post to ask on, but I am looking at your Bobbi Brown post. I see a radiance primer and am illuminating balm. Which would you recommend? My age is catching up with me and I need all the help I can get 😜

    • Mix and Match Mama March 17, 2019 at 5:34 am

      Ohhhhh! They’re both really good! I think right now, I would say radiance primer!
