floral print pants

These cropped floral pants have become a new favorite for me! I mean, who doesn't love a pair of floral pants?! I kept the look fairly simple and paired the pants with a classic ivory button down blouse, my new-to-me thrifted Gianni Bini heels, and a thrifted clutch! Easy-peasy! Happy thrifted thursday!

an updated ottoman

I've been wanting an ottoman for our living room for quite a while now. I wanted one that sits low to the ground because our couch sits low, and I also wanted one that had storage inside, but I wasn't willing to pay over $15...yep, I'm cheap! :) While out thrifting the other day I finally found the perfect ottoman! Well...except for the hideous fabric and the fact that it was stained and really worn-out looking! But, hey, I love projects! I used left over fabric from when I re-covered our dining room chairs. The fabric is navy and white Moroccan print and I also made black piping. Black and navy isn't my favorite color combination , but our couch is black so I wanted to tie that color in somehow - and this article I recently read affirms the combo! :) I really like how it turned out! Here are a few before and after photos!

A few days ago I was seriously craving French Toast, but was out of eggs! Without eggs, I couldn't use my favorite recipe, but I figured that it was possible to omit the eggs. I searched for eggless french toast recipes online and found several. The recipe I settled on was my modification of several different recipes and I think that it turned out wonderful! In fact, I might just make eggless french toast from now on to keep the dish a few calories lighter - although I'm sure that is irrelevant with the amount of powdered sugar I pile on .. ;)
