Almost There

Sooo...been doing a lot of packing recently for my move back home over the summer break. Sometimes I just wish I could stay here until the next semester starts up again instead of looking into storage units and flights back to CA. I miss my family loads, but still, I'm completely worn down from everything that's happened recently and wish there was an honest-to-goodness break.
Since my outfits lately have been essentially tees with shorts (it stops the bf complaining about wearing "granny dresses and cardigans" anyhow XD), here's some sketchy stuff I've been working on.

These are some watercolor 3-minute gestures we did in class (the model was awesome):

Rough sketch for my sis:

Marchin' On

 (this is one of my favorite necklaces friends never get the reference at first)
Tank, Sweater: Target
Skirt: Modcloth
Necklace: Disney Couture

Aaaaaand the flu is gone! Just in time for the teachers to start bugging us with final projects and essays (at least I'm ready :P). Yesterday was Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry's, so a gaggle of my friends and I partook of the free-ness. It's so weird to go someplace without your wallet, but it was pretty cool too. I got Half-Baked, which I'd never had before (shocking, right??), then we walked over to the beach. A few of us jumped in, but I'm a wimp and I hate having wet clothes. And the skirt was new. XD

Speaking of the's going to be a new favorite. I'm in the process of weeding out a lot of my black clothing (soooo much), and I realized I have no colored skirts whatsoever. So, this seemed pretty cheerful, and I really like the buttons (and pockets!). I'm thinking it's comfy enough to wear on the plane ride home to CA next month, you guys do that? Plan out traveling outfits? I have three flights to get there, but I'm not seeing my family for the first time in months wearing a t-shirt and jeans. XD

Dream on Repeat

Dress: F21
Belt: Target
Shoes: Poetic License

Sooo....this last week has been pretty strange. I've been hit up with just about every kind of flu and cold symptom (included the dreaded sore throat) and have spent most of my "spare time" (I did have to miss a class or two) laying around watching Twilight Zone. It felt like I was in some sort of time bubble, and now it doesn't feel like Friday at all. o.o
In any case, I'm doing a lot better. I have lingering traces of a sore throat, but I'm hoping to have that knocked out with lemon tea and cough drops.
(Anyone have any at-home remedies...? I read somewhere that a dill pickle worked?)

Completely off-topic: I love these shoes! I never really considered myself a "shoe" person until I saw some Poetic License pairs. They're so OTT and lovely that they just called to me...this pair is more tame, definitely, but I can't wait to wear them out more when I have my sea-legs back.

Ohhh, this project was due way-back, but I'm pretty happy with it and thought I should post some more recent art:
It's the mock-concert poster for my Graphic Design class (I picked Rasputina). No grades back yet, but I have my fingers crossed!
