Bump-up the 4th & the best Burgers ever

Yes, I did take these pictures with my iPhone.  I felt as if the cheesy-ness of the photos went with the complete tacky-ness of the Bumpit I have in my hair!   My friend and I decided that we had to have Bumpits in our life, so we ordered some from Hong Kong... We are totally in love with them.
Anyway, today is Independence Day! So happy 4th everyone.  Due to the tradition of bbqing, drinking beer and watching fireworks, I thought I would share my favorite burger recipe ever.  My mom and I made it up one year and are obsessed.  For those of you similar to me (or not) who don't like meat, the Portobello Mushroom Burger is the way to go! 

The mushroom burgers are wonderfully simple.  Just grill some portobello mushrooms and melt some provolone cheese on them.  Meanwhile, make your favorite Pesto and lightly grill some whole-wheat buns.  When the Mushrooms are ready, put the Pesto and some sliced, grilled Red Peppers (you can buy these at the store or do it yourself) on the bun.  Voilà!  I would grill some corn too, to go alongside. 

Happy 4th!

Basil & the Jardin

So many fun new things!  I started a Jardin ( French for 'garden') this year!  Soon I will have red, yellow & orange peppers, beets, beens, an assortment of herbs and lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, peas and many more yummy treats.  I am so excited because I essentially live off of fruits and vegetables and buying everything local or organic gets expensive!  I am also obsessed with basil and my old plant was looking a little weak, so I bought a new one! 
I also have an iPhone now and I am loving it.  Finally I have entered the modern world.  I found an 'app' for this crazy cool camera (a hipstamatic).  It's completely horrible (and addicting) because it makes every picture look cool even if you have no photography skills what-so-ever (i.e. Me!).

Home on the Ranch

I am a very bad blogger and did not take that many photos from the road trip.  Here are a few though.  Some photos of the ranches around montana, a cool car, and a wedding cake of course!  
There is also a photo of this months Vogue.  It was impossible to find an Elle or a Vogue anywhere during the trip and I needed one for the 9 hour car ride. 
I finally wore the Acne dress with some lovely Jeffery Campbell shoes, but, alas...I literally had no time to take a picture of it!
Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Book Club

A a friend of mine let me borrow this book and it is wonderful.  In fact, I can't put it down.  If you are bored this summer, I would definitely pick up a copy of "The Savage Detectives" by Roberto Bolaño.
You can't see in the pictures, but I wore little brown Oxfords by Steve Madden with this ensemble.

Lines & Dots

This is kind of an odd combination but it works I think.  I love, love, love these shorts that I bought last year in France.  I often have trouble figuring out what to pair them with.
The Arts Festival is this weekend, which I was pretty excited for, but turns out I won't be attending.  I will be in Montana (which is equally exciting).  I will finally have the opportunity to wear the Acne dress I purchased in NYC.  I am definitely looking forward to that.
