The 2011 Jazz Age Lawn Party

2011 Jazz Age Lawn Party- (4)

The Jazz Age Lawn Party, held bi-annually on Governor’s Island, is my hands down favorite NYC event of the summer. I first fell in love with the party last August.

There’s nothing like spending the day on Governor’s Island, enjoying old time-y dancing, picnic lunches, tasty drinks, and amazing jazz age inspired fashion. The street style at the Jazz Age party cannot be beat! Sadly, I’ll be missing the August event this year. But I did manage to make it over to the party this past Sunday. With the help of the new East River Ferry, my journey was cut in half! I’d definitely recommend using that as your mode of transport if you’re based in Brooklyn, like I am.

This summer, the event was bigger than ever! I made so many wonderful new friends. If I took your picture, say hi! The photos really speak for themselves, so I’ll cut this short, and get on to the good stuff.😉
