Southern Belle in Training

Fashion, Travel & Lifestyle Blog || Est. 2012 || Virginia Beach, VA


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, but I've been blogging here at Southern Belle in Training since 2012 and am equally in love with blogging.

      I started this blog way back on my 18th birthday in 2012, thinking that it would be a fun hobby to have in college, and a way to share the outfits that I wore for classes and weekends. Here we are over a decade later, and now blogging isn't just 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 Virginia, where I work full-time as a morning radio host on a local station. My weekday mornings begin very early, but I get to do what I love for a living, which is a blessing I don't take for granted! I am originally from a small town in 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
