another andrea & a radio show!

Jul102010_0074
A couple weekends ago, Andrea and I were on In Her Shoes, a local radio talk show. We were the young professionals to be represented on the show. Andrea dressed cute and comfy while I showed up looking like a bum in a grey t-shirt. Andrea has great style and looks polished whenever I see her out and about. She’s the talent retention director for Lansing Economic Development Corporation and I adore her. This particular afternoon she wore a printed, flowy dress on dressed down with flippies. I believe her plans were to hang around downtown following the show since it was a Saturday and there were fun things going on downtown.

One of the hosts, Shelley, really cracks me up. I met her a couple times at Toastmasters, but I never realized how absolutely hilarious she is until the show. I wish I had her quick wit. Shelley owns Mieshel Image Consulting and she kept talking about how she had to go shopping after the show with a client at the best mall in Michigan and my favorite: Somerset. Oh her rough life!

Haley in Old Town

Jun282010_0146

My beautiful friend Haley is in town every Mondays (now that she lives out of town, I look forward to these days when I get to see her.) I wanted to photograph her because she’s just so lovely. I just found out her boyfriend and one of my good friends as well accepted a position in Houston so they will be moving there sometime in the winter I think. I must hang out with her as much as I can until then! This outfit is totally her style. She brought over an assortment of clothing and I eyed this top out first for the shoot. She has a weakness for cutesy things from Anthropologie, but this special power of resisting temptation unless there’s a huge sale involved. She got this fabulous top half off. That’s so Haley! Good girl!

east lansing art festival!

The East Lansing Art Festival took place on Saturday and Sunday and I spent both days browsing the booths, listening to music and eating delicious food. It was so so hot though and I haven’t yet adjusted to the heat. I quickly tracked down my favorite booths to find a few jewelry pieces and spent most of the time looking for food and listening to music at the main stage. 

It was such a fabulous weekend with my friend Courtney here visiting. She met a ton of my Lansing friends and we celebrated my friend Sarah’s birthday on Saturday with dinner and dancing. Here are a few photos from the weekend!

One of my favorite booths was the leather goods booth. My friend Jenn purchased a gorgeous leather bag and I picked up a couple leather wristbands.
