OOTD: A Fedora Kinda Day

I'm pretty sure the temperature today was over 100 degrees C. 
It was so incredibly hot and I didn't feel like doing my hair if it was just going
 to be ruined by my sweat and the heat. So, I decided to make use of a hat :)

[warning= nearly everything is from Forever 21]
What I wore:
-fedora: Forever 21
-leopard tank: Forever 21 (but I fringed it myself)
-tan braided belt: thrifted
-black high-waist shorts: Forever 21
-tan boots: Forever 21
-camel buckle bag: Aldo
-bracelets and dagger earrings: Forever 21
-ring: (I don't remember)

ps. It was so hot shooting these pictures! but always fun :)

XS Collective Haul: Forever 21 & CVS

Recently, I made a small online purchase on the Forever 21 website and I have to say, every time I order from them, the process is so easy and quick. I love the random free shipping promotions that they do here and there!
Also, CVS is one of my go-to places to purchase drugstore makeup items. 
Here's the VERY small haul :)

The items together.

Forever 21: black hi-low lace top $13.50
the top doesn't have a pic of its own :(

Forever 21: silver spikes/pearls necklace $8.80
Forever 21: brown/peach teardrop necklace $7.80

CVS: Wet n Wild nail color set $9.99

Now, THIS purchase, I am so proud of! Despite the fact that the quality isn't as great as pricier nail brands, for its price and color selection, Wet n Wild polishes are pretty great!
The $9.99 for a $25.00 value was a good deal, however, the colors in this set got to me.
Can't wait to try these, esp the magenta and pale violet color!

same set with flash.

CVS: NYC City Mono Eye shadows in "I love NY" $2.49
(shimmery pearly white)
CVS: EcoTools 6 pc Bamboo Eye Brush Set $7.98

*overall, I think this e/s is okay for its price of only $2.49.
I only use it for the inner corners of my eyes anyway and it does its job.

here is a close-up of the mini brushes.

*I am actually a huge fan of EcoTools, so I love this travel brush set. 
Each brush is labeled with a designated purpose but I didn't use them as labeled.
The fluffy crease brush (top; 1st) and flat lid brush (3rd) are my favorite!

That's the end of this post. Thanks for reading! <3

A few days ago, the weather was beaaaaaautiful. So my boyfriend and I  decided to go on a day date to a man-made botanical/Japanese garden near his house :)

Now, time for the fit!

What I wore:
-black bandeau: Forever21
-white t-shirt tank: diy
-leopard shorts: H&M
-studded clutch: Sam Moon
-Dark green booties: Forever21
