An exciting announcement!

     Ladies (and whatever gentlemen there are reading this), you're going to be hearing a lot more from me in the next couple months! :-)

     I've been saying pretty much since I started this blog that I'd like to get on a regular post schedule. I wanted blogging to be a part of my daily life, like how it was in high school with my old blog. But even though I've kept busy in college, I could never find that much to write about and I'd forget to ask my friends to take photos of me for fashion posts. That's all about to change though, because...

     I'm going to be graded on maintaining this blog for my intro to communications class! How cool is that?! A big chunk of my homework grade for the semester is based on me keeping a blog. I was thrilled when my teacher said that I could use this blog as my project instead of starting a new one just for school! We have to post a minimum of 3 times a week, so that's a lot of posts coming your way.

     The one catch was that every student's blog has to have a specific focus. As y'all probably know my posts tend to be a little all over the place, so I had to do some thinking on what I want the majority of my posts to be about from now on. I thought about sticking with general posts about college life, but honestly my life here at school isn't too exciting. While I do make time to have fun with my friends, I mostly just stay busy with homework, church and clubs. I feel as though this would get old really quickly for me to keep blogging about. Soooo that means that the official focus of Southern Belle in Training is that it's now a (predominantly)...

     ...Fashion blog! I know that it's been forever since I've done a fashion post, but I've always gotten great feedback on my fashion posts and they're the most fun for me to do. Not to toot my own horn, but I think that I have a very classy and slightly unique sense of style, and I can't wait to be sharing more about it with y'all a few times a week! I like to mix cheap bargain pieces with nicer splurge items, and you'll learn quickly that I like bright colors and I love sparkles!

     From time to time I'll give updates on my college life and share thoughts on my faith, but be prepared for a large dose of fashion in the next few months! I'm so excited that you are reading this post, and I hope that you stick with me!

xoxo Miss ALK
