After having pretty much the best summery weekend ever these last few days, I'm on a complete summer high...hoping it lasts through September.

A new online boutique you're sure to adore

Is this what sending your child off to the first day of kindergarden feels like? For the past couple weeks I've been helping put together the new website for the boutique I'm working at this summer. Designed by the oh-so-lovely Kate Arends of Wit & Delight (how talented is she?!), we are finally ready for the site to go live. I present to you:

Life lately, according to my iPhone

1. I'm head over heels in love with the city of Minneapolis, if you didn't already know. Taken at Calhoun Beach.

2. Post-beach sushi with friends. Wakame has THEE best sushi happy hour around, the prices are unreal.

3. Some of the most talented women I've ever had the pleasure of meeting; Thao from Parc Boutique, Kate from Wit and Delight, and Wing of Canary Grey. I'm sure the dude at far right is talented also.

4. I take food holidays VERY SERIOUSLY, so naturally for National Doughnut Day I found myself the biggest glazed monster I could. 

5. Pattern mixing brightens my day, especially polka dots and stripes.

6. Sitting around a bonfire with friends and making s'mores OWNS going to a bar. 

7. Ahh, my lovely new bag from Parc Boutique. AND, get this, the inside says "Let them eat cake", WITH a little cupcake embroidered. RIGHT?!?!! My friend Steph so cleverly put it, "If you were reborn as a purse, this would be it." Totes.

A proposal flip book?

Now there's something I haven't seen. 

I'm starting to get nervous with these epic proposals you guys. Kind of like the jumbo-tron ones (WHICH IS SO OVER DONE OUTLAW THEM SOMEBODY), in my head I'm like, "Great now she can't say no. She totally wants to say no. She's dying inside. Great. GREAT." 

......but as far as creativity goes, this owns.

Deconstructed state sandwiches....okay, now I'm hungry.

Someone hire this girl. Kelly Pratt, a design student in Chicago, has set out to create some serious sandwich art. She's making (and photographing) a beautifully deconstructed sandwich for every state. She only has about ten so far, which you can see here, but plans to do allllll 50. 

The best part? When you're done drooling you can head to this part of the website, which has the recipe for each.
