DIY Raspberry White Chocolate Mocha

Holiday planning is in full-force now!  While you’re searching for holiday drinks, look no further!  This one is kid-friendly and super yummy.  I mean who doesn’t love white chocolate?  Plus, the raspberry gives the drink a very festive pink color!

For this drink, you need:

  • 5 cups of coffee (optional, we all know kids don’t need any caffeine)
  • 2 bars of white chocolate
  • 1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk (can substitute for: 1 bar of white chocolate)
  • 3 cups of milk
  • Raspberry syrup (to taste, I usually add about 1/2 tablespoon)

Serving size: approximately 10 drinks

This drink is super easy to make.  First, make the coffee.  Then, while the coffee is brewing, pour 3 cups of milk in to a saucepan.

Tip: Slowly stir the milk as it heats up (this prevents that gross film from developing)

Once the milk is steaming, break pieces of white chocolate in to the milk.  Once the white chocolate is fully melted and incorporated in to the milk, add half a can of sweetened condensed milk. This makes the white chocolate milk super creamy and luxurious!  My mouth is watering while typing this….

After everything is blended together, pour the coffee in to the milk.  Stir everything together.  Now, add 1/2 a tablespoon of raspberry syrup for a splash of color and flavor.  And you’re done!

DIY Halter Crop Top in 9 Easy Steps

DIY Halter top feature image

Feature Monday will start again next week!  Until then, check out this great DIY!

After browsing through Pinterest for almost six hours, I am completely convinced that there is nothing you can’t make from a t-shirt.  So, I’m going to make a halter crop top from two old t-shirts that have been sitting on my floor for the past few months.

For this project, you will need:

  • Two semi-fitted T-shirts
  • scissors
  • needle and thread (or a sewing machine if you have one)
  • an iron and ironing board

Time to complete project:

  • 2 hours with sewing machine
  • 4 hours hand sewing

First step: Take the two shirts and turn them inside out.

Second Step: Cut the sleeves, neckline, and hem off of one of the t-shirts.

(This will be used to cover the neckline and hem of the halter top)

Cut 2 inch strips

Third step: Cut FIVE 2-inch strips from this shirt.

Then cut the loop open, so it becomes one long strip.

Now, let’s create the halter top base with the other t-shirt.
Cut dotted lines

Fourth Step: For the halter top, cut the neckline off and both the sleeves off in a diagonal line.

Fifth Step: To clean up all those raw edges, take the 2-inch strips and fold the strips down the middle, so no raw edges are showing.

  Now, iron the strips to secure the fold.

Sixth Step: Sandwich the raw edge of the halter top.

Pin the three layers together.

Seventh Step: When two raw edges meet, cut the excess fabric and fold both of the edges in.  Then, pin the clean edge.

Eighth Step: Repeat this process for all the raw edges.

**If you don’t like to sew, you can leave the bottom hem raw.**

Ninth Step: Sew all the edges!

How To Layer Statement Necklaces

Whether you’re trying to spice up an outfit or just trying to nail the accessorizing game, statement necklaces are going to be your best friend.  A plain t-shirt and jeans outfit can instantly look chic enough for brunch with a pair of strappy heels and a statement necklace.  Take your style game to a new level by layering statement necklaces.  Yes, I said it.  You can layer statement necklaces, just remember to keep the color palette simple.

Wearing the same old necklaces can get boring, so give your jewelry new life by layering them!  Here are some examples:

You can play with length when layering necklaces, just make sure both necklaces have the same color scheme.  When layering statement necklaces, don’t mix silver and gold necklaces together.  Remember less is always more.  Statement necklaces make a statement on their own, so don’t try to put too many colors together.

3 Ways to Rock the Minimalist Style This Fall

DressIn 1

I have been in love with minimalist style for years now.  I love the shape, cut, and effortless style of minimalism.  From home decor to my closet, minimalist style is clean and chic.  To achieve the minimalist style focus on three things:

  1. Fit
  2. Length
  3. Cut

Right now, I’m in love with oversized, boxy fits.  This simple shape is classic and looks effortlessly sophisticated.  For example, a boxy white collared shirt would look amazing with some fitted skinny trousers.  Or to play with volume, a boxy collared shirt would look fashion week ready with a pair of wide leg trousers.

Length, length, length.  Length is everything.  It can make or break an outfit.  Cropped or Tunic length tops are super chic and can be paired with a variety of things.  Such as fitted trousers, wide leg trousers, fitted skirts, and maxi skirts. For the fall, my favorite combination is combining a tunic length collared blouse with a cropped sweater.

DressIn 2

For cuts, I love the trendy unfinished hems on workwear pieces such as collared blouses, dresses, and jackets.  Draping is also a beautiful detail that can give any outfit some Hollywood Glamour.  The slightly loose fit on this top makes it perfect to layer with jeans or a classic pair of trousers.

The asymmetrical cut is super trendy right now.  Whether this angled cut is on t-shirts or blouses, it looks chic and sophisticated.  Angled shirts can be hard to style, so try to pair them with fitted trousers for a easy, yet polished look.

When putting together a minimalist style outfit, remember to always KISS (Keep it simple stupid).
