Though I didn't eat many Nutter Butters growing up, I would always find myself infatuated with the perfectly-shaped, crisp, nutty cookie sandwiches when I did have them on rare occasion. I was so intrigued by this recipe, I wanted to make them as soon as possible, because they just looked that good.
I solved the flour issue by mixing all-purpose flour with cake flour, which is finer in texture. And in regards to the butter, I let it slide just to see how to cookies would turn out. Thankfully, I didn't end up seeing or tasting any issues and they turned out into crisp, but still chewy, peanut butter cookies shaped into cute peanuts. Though I still want to give the Nutter Butters recipe a second go, this altered recipe will be a keeper. Sometimes baking experiments can turn into wonderful creations!

No matter the season, I think a great pair of dark wash skinny jeans, a crisp white button-down, and a red lip always make for an easy and classic put-together outfit. Though animal print has not always been a regular in my closet, this scarf was an awesome find during a recent stop by a local flea market and I hope to take a look at a few more soon! Anything you love finding at flea markets?

|dELiA*s Dress, Robin K Sweater (found at TJ Maxx), Belt (Unknown), Earrings (gifted from HK)|
I recently found this beautiful blue and green geometric-patterned maxi dress I hadn't worn since last spring and because I've had no desire to wear jeans or any other type of pants for the last few days, I've caught myself finding any excuse to wear this dress over and over again. It’s a great piece to slip on for unhurried days and I love that it works with minimal jewelry and this relaxed sweater on top.

|Inside the H&M Purse|
Over one year ago, I shared my first installment of Peek Inside the Purse. Looking back, I think it is quite evident nothing has changed much. I still have a thing for deceptively inadequate-looking bags in which I carry around too many things inside to keep myself entertained. Nonetheless, I thought it would be a fun idea to once again show the insides of my purse.
