Friday Favorites

Whew!  Anyone else need a weekend?

Ashby is doing better.  I think this one was really hard, but she’s hanging in there.  That girl just blows my mind

My week has been all kinds of wonky (my kids love that word), so today’s post is going to be short, sweet and filled with ACCESSORIES!  I’m partnering with Nordstrom and ShopStyle and sharing some of my favorite accessories right now…plus, I decided to put my own little spin on it and show you accessories perfect for the poolside.  This weekend, we have volleyball, a birthday party, and I’m working my way through season 2 of Game of Thrones.  In the meantime, I’m linking up with my girls Erika, Narci and Andrea and sharing my faves!

Happy weekend, friends!

I thought I’d gather up all of my favorite accessories to wear poolside and show you a flat lay including my white coverup and my FAVORITE swimsuit from our Disney Cruise


Let me break it all down for you…

Coverup: I bought it in white, but it does also come in black.  I love the sleeves! It’s a little fancy and a little simple all at the same time.
Super Cute Clear Earrings: I love that they’re clear (go with everything!) and they’re super light too!!  I don’t wear earrings when I swim, but if I’m going to a pool party and am in a swimsuit but maybe not legit “swimming”, I do like to have a fun, light pair on.
Bangles: Set of five bangles for only $25!  Lots of jangle for your poolside!
Beaded Bracelet: Colorful and fun and easy to throw on with anything.
Hat: I bought this one last year and am still wearing it all the time.  It packs well and then holds it shape after you pull it from the suitcase.
Sunglasses: Oldies but goodies…my favorite pair!
Swim Top: I think the colors just scream “wear me in the sun!”.
Swim Bottoms: I bought them in pink, but they come in so many other fun colors too!
Flip Flops: These are cute, comfy and only $26!

So fun, right?!  Easy little accessories to jazz up your summer 🙂 .

I also bought this little romper too!  You can’t have too many coverup rompers come summertime!

I love easy little accessories to throw on!  Speaking of which…check out this next  fave…


Allllll the earrings I’m wearing right now!  Aren’t they fun?! None of them are heavy because I can’t wear heavy earrings, but ALL of them are FUN!  You have seen me wear all of them before.  These were all big hits on our cruise and in constant rotation at home.  Most of them come in multiple colors, so make sure you click and take a peek!

Look at all the earrings in action 🙂 .

Here’s a little widget of all the accessories from today’s post.  Whether you order online and pick up in store or order at home and use their free shipping and returns (both super convenient!), you cannot go wrong with Nordstrom!

And bonus!  I just heard that the entire HiSugarplum Collection has been restocked!!  Woohoo!!

Check out all of my favorite pieces HERE.

We’ve been celebrating Andrew’s birthday all week!  One of my faves has been dinner at Benihana’s with my fam 🙂 .

We sat at two different tables next to each other…a girl table and a boy table.  Catherine and I sat next to each other, and it’s a good thing because our hubbies wanted sushi but were making it all healthy…we wanted sushi but we wanted ours with cream cheese and fried.  Ha!  Ours was better 😉 .

Lovie and the littles!

Kensington had been behind Isaiah talking to my dad, and he could hear her voice.  He was trying every which way to see her.  Sweet boy!!

The biggest with the littlest 🙂 .

What a fun night we had!!!  Look at all of those happy people!

And wrapping up today…I don’t know about you, but in my family, we MUST have deviled eggs with our Easter meal.  It’s a requirement!  Today, I’m sharing…

Smoky Pecan Deviled Eggs

…my Smoky Pecan Deviled Eggs.  You’re going to want to see that recipe right HERE.

Happy weekend, friends!  I will see you guys here on Monday!! xoxoxo

    Love all the great accessories for spring and summer. Can you please share the color name of the bikini bottoms as that brand has several variations of pink. Thanks! Have a great weekend!

  • Hallie April 5, 2019 at 5:23 am

    How is the sizing of the bikini top as it runs a little differently? I have no idea what size to get!

    • Mix and Match Mama April 5, 2019 at 5:31 am

      So, I thought it ran just like Athleta swim tops!

  • Narci April 5, 2019 at 5:38 am

    What a fun list of favorites!! I love that pic of you with Catherine, and those deviled eggs are calling my name! Yum!

    I had all kinds of thoughts about your cute accessories but then I got to the deviled eggs and they all disappeared! Those deviled eggs sound SO good!!

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams April 5, 2019 at 6:09 am

    Aww I wish I had enough time to scoop up that bikini before my vacation! I love La Blanca swimsuits! Glad Ashby is doing better and that photo of K and Isaiah is just precious! Have a great weekend Shay xo

    Hey Shay! Random comment here, but I made your Celebration White Bundt Cake yesterday for a small work party, and it was literally GONE in five minutes! I’ve NEVER made a cake that got so many compliments before. I put it in a 13×9 rectangular pan instead of a bundt cake pan, and I added Heath bar bits to the frosting. DELICIOUS!!! Thanks so much for the recipe! 🙂

      Oh my goodness!!! No way?! This made my day!!!!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick April 5, 2019 at 8:33 am

    That bikini top is the cutest!! And I think I need all of those earrings!!

    I never met a deviled egg I don’t love so that recipe looks delish. I am so glad Ashby is doing better. It’s SO hard on our momma hearts seeing our kids suffer :(. Hope you have a great weekend!

  • Heidi Jusula April 5, 2019 at 8:42 am

    Can you share what color you have in the flip flops? Thank you!

    • Mix and Match Mama April 5, 2019 at 12:13 pm

      The ballet rose color 🙂 .

  • Alison Trauger April 5, 2019 at 8:58 am

    Sushi is SO much better with some cream cheese and crunch. 😉 Love that your family always has a big dinner out together to celebrate birthdays!

    That romper is adorable. And if you really loved me, you would make me deviled eggs for my birthday.
