    Did you use your current 1.5″ rod to curl your hair in this post?

    The one I used here is 1.25 inches I think :)

    So cute, I love the sailboat tee! Hopefully your purchases work out, they all look great!

    Oh I love those shorts, so perfect for summer!

    I hate it when boots are too tall in the shaft – I’ve had to turn away too many awesome pairs of boots because I’m too short!

    Cute! I love this Tara! The necklaces are a super fun addition too.

    How cute is this nautical look? I’m hoping to do some Nordstrom shopping this weekend. Hopefully I won’t do too much damage!

    Love your pattern mixing! The shirt and crystal necklace are so cute!

    Great post! Excited to check out the presale this weekend! The Sultra curling rods are amazing – the curls from it last forever – I have the 1-inch, but very curious about this one!

  • Sharon

    Hope everything you ordered fits! I’ve been wanting to try out a curling rod on my hair but I’m not sure the curls would hold. This nautical outfit is adorable!

    I’m loving how you paired the anchors with the orange stripes instead of red, it makes it less nautical and really fresh! xo


  • Rachel Raquel

    Such a great outfit… love the pattern play! I love those boots, I hope they work out for you! :)

  • loftyappetite

    I have that Halogen pencil skirt in 3 colors and will most likely get another one. They are so comfortable, never wrinkle and I love the thick material. I think I might get the camel one too 😉

  • http://www.mixmatchfashion.com/ Tara

    That’s good to know that they don’t wrinkle! I might have to invest in a few if they fit :) Thanks for the tip!

    Those boots!!! I have my eye on the Rebecca Minkoff cupid purse – my black purse is dying a slow death. I am thinking buying a pair of Frye boots as well. Love your summer outfit! Why have I not seen this adorable tee at J Crew before?
