FASHION: Independence Day

Dan and I spent July 4 playing with fire. Starting with misfires, as the bike-to-a-party plans faded into a flat. Instead we grilled up locally-sourced burgers and sweet potato fries, toasted champagne, and fired up our new portable steel fire pit recently acquired from Grocery Outlet ($70). Then, a photo session devolved into a fiery dorkdom. En guarde.

Dan had a gig in McCall at Alpine Village a few weeks ago. The sky, white and hazy with fire smoke, matched our pale outfits, also skin.
