One of my favorite bi-annual NYC events happened last weekend— The Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island!
I harass my friends about going every year. They always debate whether or not it’s really as awesome as I make it sound…and then they see my photos, and regret not going! Never fear though: if you missed it, it happens again in August.
For this year’s June weekend of festivities, I attended the party on Saturday. A first, and honestly, not something I’m sure I’d do again. The past two years, I’ve gone on Sunday, which always seems to be more lively, and full of more dressed up, dedicated party-goers.
Either way, it was still fun, drinking in the sun, taking photos, and making some new friends. I don’t, however, recommend attending after you’ve had a late night out with friends. I was a bit late heading out, and only caught the last 2 hours of the event. (I won’t make that mistake again!)

Me, looking a little kooky.
Menswear! So cute.
I saw this adorable little girl everywhere that day.
A familiar face from last year.
Too much fun in the sun?
Zak and the tower o’ beer!
These two win best dressed couple of the day!
New friends I made on the ferry ride over!
