A Trick For Layers

Chambray: Charlotte Russe
Sweater: Target
Necklace: Mindy Mae's Market
I absolutely LOVE wearing layers, but sometimes I feel like they look bulky or lumpy.  So when I saw this trick on Pinterest, I had to try it!  And it worked fabulously!  I will definitely be putting together more layered sweater looks.

Here's the trick!!  Put a tank top OVER your first shirt. Warning: you will feel like a total dork with your chambray with a tank top over it haha. But, once you put the sweater over, it is great!  No lumps and no bulky creases to deal with!

                                         A smooth layered look!  Love this trick!

3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled 
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar 
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups chocolate chips (I like to make these with mini chocolate chips!)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees 
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside
In a medium bowl, mix the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Add in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk. Mix in the dry ingredients. 
Roll 1/4 cups of dough into a ball and bake on a greased cookie sheet for 11-13 minutes. 

These cookies are delicious!!

Coral and Blush Cravings

Coral and blush have always been some of my favorite colors! When I saw this collection by one of my favorite bloggers, I had to put together one of my own coral and blush cravings. This is definitely an "if money were unlimited" kind of collection. But a girl can dream right? :) looking forward to adding more coral and blush to my wardrobe this spring!
