Labor Day Sales + Recent Purchases.

     Happy Labor Day! I hope that it is a great Monday, whether you are working today or have the day off! Interestingly I am off work today, but I had to work both Saturday and Sunday this weekend (similar to my hours back from this spring/summer), so it isn't really a long weekend for me at all, since I only have Monday off. Ah, broadcast media life! Starting next weekend though, I have Sundays off instead of Mondays and I'm looking forward to that!

     It's not too late to enjoy the best of Labor Day Weekend sales, so I'm rounding up some from my favorite retailers in today's post! This Wednesday is Southern Belle in Training's 5th Blogiversary (and my birthday!) so there will be a special post up instead of my weekly Midweek Ramblings + Recent Purchases + Current Wishlist post. So at the end of today's post I'm also sharing my recent purchases of the week!

     And for my recent purchases of this week...

  • If you follow me on Instagram Stories, you know the funny story from the past few days with my newest pair of shoes! While at TJ Maxx, I found what I thought were the most darling embroidered flat mules. However, my mom is visiting this week and was shopping with me, and she was not into the shoes at all (she called them old lady slippers). We had a debate in the store about them, so I posted them on Instagram stories to hear y'all's opinions! I was so happy to hear most of y'all thought they were cute also, and that was able to convince my mom into getting them for me as birthday shoes! My exact pair isn't online, but this pair of mules is very similar and from the same shoe designer (and seems to be well in stock!) 
  • My mom and I also stopped by one of her favorite stores, which has a location in the Burlington area. Quite honestly, this isn't a retailer that I've ever shopped at, but I was absolutely thrilled to find this super cute fall dress there! I am already envisioning styling it with my favorite riding boots and floppy hat. 

      Also- this is your last chance to enter the last two blogiversary giveaways on my Instagram! Winners have already been picked for the first few, but two of them are still open. 

      Have a great Labor Day! I can't wait to share my special blogiversary post with y'all on Wednesday!

     God Bless,

     xoxo Annaliese (or Charlotte XO on-air!)
