Farewell, Southern Belle in the 'Bunk!

      Dress: Sold out {Similar here}

     I have so enjoyed bringing all of you my fun summer post series, Southern Belle in the 'Bunk! This was my tribute to my hometown of Kennebunk, Maine. This summer will most likely be my last full summer of living here at home, as I am entering my senior year of college in North Carolina, and planning to live in the South following college.

     I had planned to keep this series going until Friday, August 14th, but sadly there is just too much going on it my life right now to continue it! I have been working 40 hours every week since coming back from France (including one week of overtime!), and with leaving for Charlotte in just a few weeks, all of my free time right now really needs to be focused on packing for school and spending time with friends and family before leaving (and scheduling regular blog posts!). As much as I adored doing this series, the posts did take longer for me to write as I wrote in them about both fashion and the locations that I shot at!

     You can still reference any of the posts from this series by clicking on the Southern Belle in the 'Bunk label on the sidebar of my blog's homepage. Also: below are two links to blog posts from Summer 2014 when I shot at two locations in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport that are also scenic and dear to my  heart!! I didn't include these spots in the Southern Belle in the 'Bunk series, but I thought I would include the links to these older posts to close out the series.

     Thanks so much for all of the positive comments and feedback during this series! So glad y'all enjoyed.

      xoxo Your Wannabe Southerner who is definitely still a Mainer,
