“Mama, yous always stand in fwont of da door and puts yours hands up and use da timer. Can you ever do somefing diff’went?”

Sorry, Graham, I guess I am a creature of habit. I got my new Spirit Love top in the mail and wanted to take a pic for Rach. Vintage Birds. Swoon. And my new jeans crawled out of Laundry Chair unharmed. And somehow unwrinkled.

I decided to fly out of my comfort zone and try a few different poses. I read something one time about holding a book to look more natural.

But I would really look like this.

Pose with something you love. That one’s easy. I love me some homemade salsa…

Then there’s the good old ‘holding a Starbucks’ pose.

But this is what I really look like when I drink coffee. My 17-month-old still doesn’t sleep through the night.

I tried the ‘candidly laugh at something off camera’ as Bess almost walked off the hope chest.

In my mind, I was pensive and sultry. No idea how we have three children.

I am a 21-year-old sorority sister. And apparently from the South.

Being natural. But trying to keep my arms down. I was halfway successful.

All joking aside, I love this top. All my favorite tops are from Spirit Love. The owner, who also happens to be one of my dearest friends, is transforming a vintage Airstream into a mobile boutique. I am thrilled to be a part of it, even from two states away!

So thrilled, in fact, that I am doing a GIVEAWAY!

1) Click on the campaign and give $10 or more.

2) Take a screenshot of your receipt and send it to

3) Share this blogpost with your friends. When they include your name in their receipt emails, you will earn extra entries!

4) Check back on March 2nd. Because I will randomly draw one person to win a $25 gift card to Spirit Love!



And one more. I managed to keep my arms down…there’s hope for me after all. Too bad Adelaide was licking my foot.
