A New York Day Trip: Governor's Island

Since yesterday I shared a New York day trip with you and since I have a little free time for the first time in a couple months, I thought I would post some photos I promised I would put up a long time ago from our trip to Governor's Island this past August. It was an amazingly hot summer day (in which it was predicted to rain) and Whitney, Rachael, Megan, Julia and I got all dressed up in 20s garb and took a ferry to attend the annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. It is something I had wanted to do since seeing all the pics on the Sartorialist and other street style blogs (we spotted Bill Cunningham there snapping away) year after year, but finally found the motivation to actually do it. And oh was it worth it, everyone in attendance was decked out in costume, not a better place in the world to snap photos and people watch. And although I did spend a lot of time scoping out the scene from our blanket, watching (and critiquing) everyone that walked past as I sipped on a summery cocktail, I seemed to have only taken photos of my friends. Ooops. Next year I will make a point to branch out a bit, but for now, here was one of my favorite summer days...

And a little tragic love story acted out on the water...
