Friday Favorites Red, White & Blue Edition!

Happy Friday Friends!!

Today, I’m partnering with Nordstrom and ShopStyle and sharing one big red, white and blue post!

Two weeks, ago, I shared this outfit from Nordstrom

…and it spurred on a whole post.  Today, I have a few things you could wear, something for your kids and even fun flip flops for your hubs.  I’m, of course, linking up with my girls Erika, Narci and Andrea and sharing it all!  I love Fridays 🙂 .

Okay, let’s review this outfit once again because it includes the most amazing shorts ever…

…THESE SHORTS!!!  I’m obsessed with these shorts!  They have just the right amount of stretch in them and they’re mid-rise, so your undies won’t be showing.  I paired it with this striped tee!  It comes in so many other colors (solids as well as stripes!), but this white and red just screamed “summer party” to me!

Speaking of summer party, look at this cute top

…I found this cozy little long sleeve top that is sooooooo soft yet light that many of you (who don’t want to wear short sleeve or sleeveless) would look so cute in for your patriotic holidays.  I wore it the other  day to the volleyball tournament and loved it!  I bought the navy and white stripe, but it comes in many other color choices too.

With light little turquoise earrings (they also come in red!!).

I’m wearing it with my AG jeans and favorite sandals.

You know how I love a little dress in the summer.  This one was navy, white and made me happy…

…it was so comfy too!!!  The sizing is junior, so I bought it in a small.  I love it so much!

I wore this dress all day Tuesday with my sandals, favorite denim jacket, and these earrings which I PROMISE YOU at least EIGHT people during the day commented on.

Ready for the day!

One more navy top you might like for your holidays…

this cute little twist front tank is simple and still cute!  I wore my navi cami underneath it to give it a bit more length.  It comes in a bunch of fun colors too!

Whoop!  Whoop!  Look at my earrings 🙂 .  Wearing it with those white jeans I love so much!

This isn’t red, white and blue…but, if you liked my Mother’s Day romper

…then you can find it HERE.


Looks like a dress, really a romper 🙂 .

Andrew ordered himself two new pairs of flip flops for summer…

these and then THESE RIGHT HERE which are perfect for July 4th but haven’t arrived yet.

Nordstrom even made getting the kids ready for summer holidays easy.  They went ahead and “previewed” their new red, white and blue looks on Wednesday for school…

Ah!!  How cute are they?!  Too bad they were headed to school and not some sort of July 4th parade!!  Eeeks!  Okay, I paired a few new things with stuff they already had.  Easy, peasy and patriotic!  Nordstrom even sells Yankee shirts!  I love shopping for kids’ clothes at Nordstrom because if it doesn’t work, they make returns and exchanges so easy!  Plus, I really don’t ever have a good time to take them all in to shop, so the free shipping and returns is a lifesaver too!

Okay, here is what everyone is wearing:
Smith’s tee
Smith’s sandals
Ashby and Madeley’s dresses
Kensington’s dress
Madeley’s shoes
Ashby’s shoes
Kensington’s shoes

I love these crazy kids so much!!

We cannot wait until SUMMER!!

Additionally, it comes in a teeshirt that you can purchase on Ralph lauren website. The polo is sold out I most sizes on ralph lauren, but Macy’s has it available in all sizes.

  • Michele May 17, 2019 at 7:03 am

    You need to frame that one with all the kids laughing. It’s precious and made me smile when I didn’t feel like it today. Thanks!

  • Tracy W Doubts May 17, 2019 at 7:52 am

    I love your side part Shay! It looks great.

  • Kelly S May 17, 2019 at 7:56 am

    Shay, that picture of you and the kids on Mother’s Day is SO gorgeous! You need to frame it. 🙂

  • Stephanie Doiron May 17, 2019 at 8:03 am

    Great post!! What color are your Tory Burch sandals? 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2019 at 9:06 am

      sea shell pink 🙂

  • Erika Slaughter May 17, 2019 at 8:08 am

    THIS is what you meant with thinking alike this week! Ha! I’m such a fan of red, white, and blue-especially in the summer!!

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2019 at 9:05 am

      Hahahaha! YES!!

  • Ashley May 17, 2019 at 8:20 am

    I really want those jean shorts, but every time you’ve posted I’ve seen they only have a couple sizes. Any chance they’ll restock?

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2019 at 9:05 am

      I bet they do!!

  • Elspeth Mizner May 17, 2019 at 9:02 am

    That romper is so cute!! One of my favorite items of clothing from this post! So versatile! Also, can’t believe how fast the children are growing up! Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Raquel Whatley May 17, 2019 at 9:09 am

    HI Shay, do your white jeans get loose and saggy after you wear them for a bit? I am having such a hard time finding a pair that won’t do that.

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2019 at 11:30 am

      They do not!!! That used to be a struggle for me too, but these hold up great!

  • Nicole Buschlen May 17, 2019 at 9:25 am

    I can not believe how much you look like your mom!
    I always think you look like sisters.
    The funny thing is people say the same thing about me and my mom and I always think “does that mean I look old or she looks young” I’m going with the she looks young! And you should too. Love your blog!

  • Paige E May 17, 2019 at 9:49 am

    Girl, you are just the CUTEST!!! Mom of 4, whaaa??? I love a simple style of jean shorts and a good t shirt. Summer, here we come!

  • Debbie May 17, 2019 at 9:57 am

    All so cute Shay! Here is a Walmart link to a few other cute tops, Americana! I ordered some and they are very cute and the quality is nice. After your Amazon acrylic earring post, I’m finding it hard to spend $42 on a pair of bauble bar earrings from Nordstrom! 😉

  • Kim Bayt May 17, 2019 at 10:02 am

    I just love your hair since you’ve started to part it on the side!
    Happy Friday…

  • Suhana Ema May 17, 2019 at 10:15 am

    I love your hair parted to the side. The curls look amazing and frizz free.

  • Becky B May 17, 2019 at 10:55 am

    Have you ever done a closet organization post? Yours looks amazing and would love to see how you sort everything. Also, would love your feedback about what you hold onto and donate etc.

  • Ashley May 17, 2019 at 11:06 am

    Please tell me your nail colors on your hands and toes! So fun for summer! Thanks!

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2019 at 11:29 am

      My toes are Alpine Snow by OPI and my nails are NexGen (at my local salon) the color number is 164. Have a great Friday!

      • Ashley May 17, 2019 at 3:50 pm

        Thank you so much! Happy Friday!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick May 17, 2019 at 11:14 am

    Love your Mother’s Day picture with your darling children! So dear! Madeley’s dress looks soooo adorable!💕💕

  • Rebecca May 17, 2019 at 2:47 pm

    Where are all of your fun bracelets from!?

    • Mix and Match Mama May 18, 2019 at 6:39 am

      Aren’t they fun? That was a 7-piece little stretchy stack from BP at Nordstrom for only like $25, but they’re sold out now.

  • Amie P May 17, 2019 at 3:11 pm

    Since I know you like changing your polish out I was just curious if you have ever tried the nail stickers/wraps? They are amazing. You just pop them on and you don’t have to wait on them to dry. I change them every couple of weeks, they are just sooo much fun and cheap!! They are the topic of conversation at every one of my orthodontist appointments!! haha Here are two brands: these are by far the best!! They last a full a full two weeks depending on how fast your nails grow These work well but maybe are good for a week You can get them at walmart in store or online.

  • Kristy Moore May 17, 2019 at 8:39 pm

    Are you guys all done school and into summer? Still a full 6 weeks left for us here in Canada. 🙁 The countdown is on!

    • Mix and Match Mama May 18, 2019 at 6:39 am

      We’re done in May!!!

  • Angela Lloyd May 17, 2019 at 9:48 pm

    You look just like your mom! Beautiful!

  • Debbie May 18, 2019 at 12:47 am

    Baublebar dupe earrings on Amazon! $42 vs. $10.99.

  • Kimberly C May 20, 2019 at 6:34 am

    Do you decorate for the summer holidays like you do for fall and Christmas? I would love to see it! Summer holidays are my favorite — the weather, the red, white, and blue, just the patriotic feeling in general. I go almost as all out for summer as I do for Christmas and fall.
    The Daughters of the American Revolution chapter I belong to is in Memorial Day and 4th of July parades so I bought myself this dress for the events:
    Simple and can add a cardigan or jean jacket for cooler weather =]

    • Mix and Match Mama May 20, 2019 at 8:54 am

      I do add some red, white and blue!! Right now, I have a sign in my kitchen, I changed out my napkins on my table to red and have the kids’ patriotic plates sitting out.

    • Andrea May 24, 2019 at 8:51 pm

      Where is your turquoise bracelet from on the red white abs blue post. Love it. Thank you

      • Mix and Match Mama May 25, 2019 at 7:16 am

        Nordstrom! It’s not there any more though. Bummer.
