Affordable Fashion // Attainable Travels // Authentic Living


Affordable Fashion // Attainable Travel // Authentic Living

     Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Annaliese, and this is my little corner of the internet. My day job is in radio broadcasting (which I'm very passionate about!), but I've been blogging here at Southern Belle in Training since 2012 and am equally in love with blogging! I started this blog on my 18th birthday, thinking that it would be a fun hobby to have in college, and a way to share my passion for fashion. Here we are many years later, and now blogging isn't a hobby anymore- it's my side hustle and creative business! I still do enjoy blogging about affordable fashion and style, but I also enjoy writing about a variety of lifestyle topics including travel, my Christian faith, beauty, relationships and my radio career. I love the fact that my blog is also a place not just a place to share my outfits, but it's also somewhere that I can share some longer posts on deeper topics that mean a lot to me! 

     I currently live in Charlottesville, Virginia, where I work full-time as a morning radio host. My weekday mornings begin very early, but I get to do what I love for a living, which is a blessing I dont' take for granted! I am originally from Coastal Maine, I went to college in Charlotte, North Carolina, and my first radio job was in Vermont, so I've moved from North to South to North... and now back to the South to stay! 

     Thanks so much for reading Southern Belle in Training! I hope that you'll stick around awhile. 😊

     xoxo Annaliese



  1. You have such a lovely blog! My monogram is aLk, my initals are AKL-- close! And I'll be going to school in North Carolina next year--Elon! Have a great day :)

  2. I just saw your post on The Darling Prepster and thought I would come say hello! I also go to school in North Carolina, at Chapel Hill.

  3. Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog! After reading your about me I can already tell we have a lot in common. I am also a communication major, and love it! We also like the same TV shows. Can't beat 7th Heaven and Sister Sister! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm your newest follower by the way :)

  4. So glad I found your blog! It's actually scary how much we have in common! My 'About Me' Page needs some updating, but you'll see that I'm ALSO communications major! I'll be the marketing editor for our campus radio station this year, so I'm also considering becoming a DJ on a radio station. I ABSOLUTELY love music so much. I'm rarely caught on and off campus without my ipod headphones in.

    I can't wait to keep following you :)

    xoxo, Lizzy
