End of Summer Style at Basin Harbor Club.

     Hello September! Fall comes a bit earlier to Vermont since it's such a northern state, so it's time to kiss summer goodbye until 2018. This is one of my last favorite summer looks to share on the blog for the end of this season!

     Keeping today's post of the shorter and sweeter variety! It is finally Friday and TGIF!! (Although I work Saturdays still so TGIS tomorrow...? Haha.) If you follow my Instagram, then you know that last week the main radio station that I work for, what was formally known as Planet 96.7, rebranded and relaunched as The New Hot 96.7! Relaunching a radio station is a huge effort, and my bosses pulled it all together in amazingly just a few weeks, so work has been quite crazy to say the least. I'll try and have a new Radio 101 post up for September sometime in a couple weeks! 

      Even though today is only September 1st, cooler weather has already returned to Vermont! This Labor Day Weekend I'll be switching out my summer to fall closet and also starting to decorate my apartment for fall. Sadly, that means it's time to put away pieces for the season like this cute romper!! I found this on clearance earlier in August and fell in love with it. It seems rare that I find something on a clearance rack that fits like a glove, but this did! Rompers can be hard to buy... I feel like so many of them are too skimpy and inappropriate to wear for most situations, but this one covered both my butt and chest (and was still cute!) so I knew I had to have it! It is unfortunately sold out online, but this one is similar and on sale and from the same retailer. I know I'll look back on these photos and smile in months to come when it is way too cold to even think about wearing a romper!

      These pictures were taken by the lovely Amanda from Amanda Rose Photography! (She also shot the yellow dress outfit from this post.) I connected with Amanda through social media and was excited to shoot with her a few weeks ago! We met at the beautiful Basin Harbor Club lake resort in Vergennes, Vermont, which you can get a little taste of in these pictures. I was definitely nervous moving to Vermont about finding new blog photographers after having such a great relationship with Deeana, but I've been so lucky as to find not one, but two here! 

     Just wanted to give y'all a reminder as well to enter my blogiversary giveaways on Instagram! Southern Belle in Training turns FIVE next Wednesday (also my 23rd birthday)! There will be a special post that day to celebrate here on the blog, but all this week to get ready for that I've been hosting a different giveaway each night on my Instagram. They're all still open for entries and very easy to enter- you can do so here

     Happy Labor Day Weekend! I'll try and update y'all on Sunday or Monday with the best long weekend sales! Also remember to keep the victims of Hurricane Harvey still in your thoughts and prayers, and donate if you haven't yet to relief efforts!

      God Bless,

  11. You looks so beautiful on your romper. So chic. Happy weekend love!!

  12. I completely relate to what you said about most rompers being inappropriate. I feel like they make the torso area too short most times & the shorts part is never long enough! But, this one fits you perfectly!

  13. I love the colors in that romper! You look so pretty!

  14. Okay this romper is adorable! You look so cute!

  15. That romper is the absolute CUTEST on you!!!! I am obsessed!
