I've spent most of my weekend around the house cleaning, rearranging my room, getting caught up on unfinished projects, etc., so I thought that an around the house shoot would be fitting.  I'm currently living with my parents, so all of the lovely furniture you see here is theirs.  My parents are a big fan of arts & crafts style furniture, and my father, a school administrator/woodworker, made many of the pieces in our house, such as the shelf, hutch, and bench featured above.

I was told today at church that my outfit is very fitting of a librarian, and I can't help but agree. I fell in love with this plaid wool skirt a year ago and purchased it when it went on sale, but today is the first time I've worn it! For some reason I've just had the most difficult time styling it, but after playing around for a bit this morning I think I came up with something that works.
