My sister came to visit me in New York last week.

To give you an idea of how happy I was, just before she arrived, I spent almost two hours glued to my couch watching her plane as it got closer and closer on the JFK flight map before finally hopping into a taxi to go wait for her at the airport.
Yes, I was REALLY excited.

My sister is the best of my best friends, she’s like some kind of supreme friend. We’re close to the same age, we know each other by heart and we totally understand each other (and burst out laughing) with just the blink of an eye.

Our lives are nothing alike (she is in Corsica, and I’m in New York) but we really get each other. Anyway, I’d better stop now before I start crying since I miss her so much now that’s she’s left ;)

When it comes to style, we started out with very, very different tastes.

She’s always had a very chic, feminine, pretty classic side to her – she loves beautiful jewelry, explained the Beauty of the Kelly to me and she’s been wearing Tod’s since the beginning of time.
I, on the other hand, was always more of the boyfriend jeans and Vans type, and I didn’t even start wearing makeup until a few years ago.

We’re completely different, but we’ve always talked a lot about our styles, and exchanged clothes (sometimes after lots and lots of negotiating) and little by little, our styles have grown together – she got a little more relaxed, and I got a little more sophisticated.

Here are a few photos of my favorite tourist in the whole world. I could talk to you about her for hours, but I’ll stop there, because I think you’ve already figured it out: I love her, I think she is amazing, and I adore her style.

    Salut Garance, je commente très peu mais je lis tous les jours ton blog, et d’ailleurs j’ai eu mon année je pense que ta réponse ” courage” y ai pour beaucoup, enfin bref j’adore l’article que tu viens de poster car moi aussi j’ai deux sœurs, et je me retrouve complètement dans ce que tu dis, en un clin d’œil on se comprend. Sinon vous êtes toutes les deux super belles, c’est de famille d’avoir des trop belles jambes, c’est clair qu’elle est très classera sœur, j’adore car quand tu parles d’elle on voit que tu l’admire vraiment, il y a toujours un détails sur ses achats qui montre qu’elle aime les classiques et les pièces qui ont de l’histoire (la commode Louis XVI si je ne me trompe pas, le Kelly …), c’est le genre de choses que j’aime, le fait d’investir dans des pièces intemporelles. Merci garance de nous faire part de ces moments la, ce sont ces articles que j’aime, car tu livres une part de toi avec beaucoup de bienveillance, et avec une touche de mode.

    Bisou bonne journée

    Ps: les photos sont sublimés, j’aime beaucoup la lumière, ah vive l’été :)

    She is perfect! This is my favorite post of all your posts. No relationship that I have ever had can compare to what I have with my sisters and I think you put it so perfectly in this story – waiting by the computer for her to arrive – and going to the worst place on earth (JFK!) just to spend an extra hour together. I think my husband is completely taken away, blown away, confused and at times jealous of how much I love my sisters and want to spend time with them – and of course because they even have a better idea of what is in my underwear drawer than he does!

    Ah! Love this. I have 2 sisters, both younger, but we are all close with each other in different ways. Sisterhood is THE BEST. Sad for my mom who grew up with only brothers, and hoping in a tiny way that I will have 2 girls so they can enjoy that bond. (Though I know there is something lovely in every sibling relationship.)

    (Also loved this post because it turns out I have the Laetitia sunglasses and the Garance haircut. Somehow I feel 3000% cooler.)
