The scent of roses and raspberry leaves

Outfit Details:
on a sheer day top - c/o ModCloth
shorts and wedges - c/o Joie
Mid-City Tote in Poppy - c/o Foley + Corinna
lip color - Laura Mercier lip stain in Hibiscus
glasses - Ray-Ban

Big thanks to my little sister, Tessa Marie (or Cheech, Monchichi, Chichi, Goose, Little One - I have so many nicknames for her) for taking these photos, as we were on our way back from getting our nails done. I rarely ever get my nails done, and I've literally had two or three pedicures in my life, which drives my mom nuts. I'm also extremely impatient and put my shoes on too soon, so I managed to ruin my toes before I even stepped out of the salon. Tessa must take after me, because the day she gets her nails done, she starts chipping it off. Like sister, like sister!

On Sunday, we took the girls to Governors Island for the Jazz Age Lawn Party. We met up with some friends from Rebecca Minkoff and a small group of bloggers for a little picnic and an all around relaxing Sunday. If you are in NYC and haven't been to the Jazz Age Lawn Party, go! There are two more dates this year - August 20th + 21st. Tug-o-war, dancing, picnic foods and 20s garb (your choice if you want to dress up) - it's a great time!

I have lots of photos to share from my sister's visit.
