Come Shop With Me!

I am so excited to share more about what I have been up to and open up about some dreams I have had for the last YEAR!

If you follow me on Social Media, you may have noticed on my posts and on my instastories, that I have been posting about Poshmark and having sales in my “closet.”

I started using Poshmark out of a desire to reorganize my closet, get rid of items that I no longer wore but were still in really good condition, and see what I could make by selling my gently loved items.

Lo and behold, I made a few hundred in a few weeks of using the site (and I didn’t have thousands of items posted either!) and I knew I was on to something.

If you don’t know me well, know this. I love to shop.  I love finding beautiful clothes.  I love sharing what I find with my friends and family (stay tuned for my holiday wish list for the people in your life!) It is a way for me to express myself creatively by finding cute clothes and wearing them out.  Plus, when you feel good in what you are wearing, you suddenly find yourself far more productive.  I don’t know if that is really true, but I feel that is definitely true for my personality!

Poshmark is a free buy/sell app where men and women can buy clothes at online or you can be a seller and sell items from your own closet, resell items you find at thrift stores, or even open your own boutique on Poshmark if you qualify! (I will get into that in a second.)

If you don’t already have the app, you can download it and use the code tiffharper143 to save $5 on your first purchase!

I have been praying for new ways to bring in additional income for my family during our season our wait, and I knew I wanted to do something in regards to fashion. My husband has always teased me that I should have a job that pays me to buy clothes. And truthfully, I was looking at several companies that were not MLM’s, but would allow me to purchase clothing and accessories in order to sell them outside of my home.  I was so excited about the possibility, that I spent a good deal of time researching and praying and going over which company would be a great fit for me and for my family.

Poshmark, like I had mentioned earlier, had happened upon me and was initially just a way for me to move the gently loved items out of my home and declutter, and make some really easy and fast cash.  After two weeks of using the site, thanks to having plenty of sales in my closet and having 5 Star ratings, I was notified that I was eligible to open a boutique on Poshmark.  Which leads to this:

Olivia Rhea.

Olivia Rhea is the name of my little boutique on Poshmark.  I chose that name for one because it was the name that, should the Lord had given us a second daughter, I wanted Olivia Rhea to be her name. Rhea (pronounced Ray)  is my middle name.  I wanted something personal. This feels like another baby to me, but it is so much fun and I am enjoying it so much. It is fun and it is, for the most part, brainless, and I am really thankful that I get to do this!

I now have a boutique on Poshmark. Which means that each week, I will be adding new, beautiful clothing and accessories to my shop for you to buy.  And you can do it all from the comfort of your home, via an app. You don’t have to show me your credit card and you will get your items via priority mail….which means you get them quick!

Right now, I have the softest sweater EVER (seriously, you need it to layer over all the things as you go about your daily errands or after your workouts) and comfy leggings. More will be added in the coming weeks (including a new item today, so be watching my insta-stories)

Every item will be wrapped personally by me and with a special note, just to thank you for shopping with me. And if you are feeling brave and want to show off how amazing you look, don’t forget to tag me in your outfit photos!  I would love to see you!!!

I will also give you guys the chance to be the buyer!  I want to be able to add all sizes, so don’t be afraid to let me know what you want to see in my shop so I can try and get that for you.

A question that I will probably get a lot that I thought I should answer right now:

Will I always be selling my items on poshmark?

In short, no.  I have really big dreams and vision about where I want Olivia Rhea, the name of my little shop on Poshmark to go. For now, though, it works easiest for me and for all of you.  Easy shopping and fast shipping.  I will share more as those dreams become closer to becoming a reality, but for now, all shopping will happen on Poshmark (unless you are one of my friends and family and are local…obviously, come hang out and shop with me! I will have coffee and snacks!)

I cannot wait to share more with you gals and to offer even more pretty things so you can look and feel your best.  Because we are women who live with purpose and we wear so many hats, let’s dress ourselves with purpose and do the things we are called to do.

Be a Size You,

Friday Favorites Roundup

Y’all, this is NOT my outfit for today. This was  back around LAST FALL/WINTER.  It is still around eighty degrees in Southern California and the weather doesn’t look to be dropping anytime soon. Which makes this Fall loving gal really sad.

Come on, California! Get with it!

In the meantime, I am dreaming of sweaters, booties, warm and cozy things for your home, and soups to make at home.

First, who watched last week’s UCLA game against Texas A&M? I thought for sure I would have to comfort my Bruin loving husband because it did not look good. That comeback game was one for the books because even I was cheering (and I am a USC fan!!!)  I love games like that!! So good!

Now for my favorites for this week.

Since Fall is slowly happening, and for some of you, the transition into cooler weather is already happening in your area, I have been browsing some of my favorite sites for pretty Fall worthy items to add to my wardrobe.  I am always on the lookout for sweaters, duster cardigans, jeans, and booties, as well as some accessories.  A lot of these are on sale as well, so if you are able, snag a few of the items you have been eying before the price goes up again!

When it comes to my home, I love switching out pillows to match the seasons.  One of my favorite shops happens to be Linen and Ivory. They have such cute merchandise so if you are looking for something festive, you definitely should check this small business out.
I love this pillow
And this one
Name that movie!!!  It is one of my favorites for Halloween. My sisters and I have always wanted to dress up as the Sanderson Sisters for Halloween. I call dibs on Winifred Sanderson.
There are a ton of beautiful pieces, so please go check them out!!!  I have these two Pillow covers currently in my home:
And Candles? Yes, we need fall scented candles in our home! Pronto!
My favorite candle scent is Marshmallow Fireside from Bath and Body Works. You guys. YAAAASSSS!
Bath and Body Works is having a special right now on these candles (regularly $24.50) but you get them for $12.50 each when you buy 2 or more.  Do it. I always stock up on my favorite scents when the three wick candles go on sale. I love having them burn in my home, especially when the weather cools down and when I am reading….or just anytime really. I don’t need permission to light a candle!
I am also dreaming of delicious soups to make during Fall/Winter months that are relatively easy, yet delicious and healthy and satisfying.  That is super important to me.
Here are some soup recipes that have caught my eye recently and I am going to make in the coming weeks:
That is all I have for today.  What are you loving this week?  If you don’t already, follow me on Insta to see what I am up to daily!

Mom Chic for Fall

Fall?!

I know. For those of you who live in Southern California, it is not even close to fall weather. We are still seeing 100 degree temps. The image of sweaters, booties, jeans and leggings sends us into hives!

But, in case you didn't know, I am not a normal California girl. I am so excited for Fall!

Fall to me means:

College Football (Go Trojans!)
Warm lattes
Fire place
Cooler temps
Cute clothes!

There is just something about boots and sweaters and skinny jeans that gets me so excited. I like to shop ahead of time and browse my favorite online boutiques, or even hit some of the sales to score some really cute pieces.

My family and I had a HUGE garage sale to get rid of a lot of stuff we had accumulated over the last several years. I am embarrassed by how much of that was clothes that we no longer wore.

You guys. What the heck??!! That is horrendous! No one should have that many clothes!!!

Thankfully, a lot of sweet mamas and kids were able to buy some new to them items, and the rest that weren't sold, we were able to give away. Huge win and relief. I don't want to be a hoarder.

But back to the reason for this post: for my mamas who are looking to be chic and comfy for Fall.

It is not impossible. I promise, even for those of you who are in the middle of nursing babes and lacking sleep, you can still look and feel good. I also have a 5 Minute beauty routine that I personally use to help me look wide awake (even if I need four or five cups of coffee!)

It doesn't take much. I promise.

For those of you who are looking for effortless style, here is what I have found lately that I am loving.

Shoes:

I am a sucker for a good bootie. I am really digging the fact that gray colors are considered neutrals and that they go with everything!!! Everything!!! Dresses, jeans, skirts,

These particular pair I found from a site I am in love with and is fairly new to me called Gray Monroe.

Some more shoes that are a little more on the high end, but are gorgeous nonetheless can be found at Nordstrom. Please tell me you took advantage of the anniversary sale this weekend! I did and I got these really cute booties in black:


I wanted to grab these ones as well in Greystone, but I decided to wait. We will see about November.

I also saw some amazing tops that I thought would be perfect for a play date, school activities, errands, and even date night.

These styles are also available from Gray Monroe and they get new arrivals each week. Also, if you sign up for their email list, you get first dibs on sales and specials and new arrivals. Yay!!!

I am so eyeing that mauve off the shoulder top and the cream sweater. Those are mine! 😍😍

Are you excited for Fall? Or are you clinging on to summer and dreading the changing of the seasons?

And most importantly, who is your favorite College Football team? I must know these things!

Fall Outfits I have Been Loving

I love dressing for Fall.

Get me some skinny jeans or leggings, oversized tops and sweaters, scarves, booties or boots, and I am so good to go.  If you haven’t guessed, I LOVE shopping. I love clothes. I love helping my friends find cute outfits and deals and helping them feel like the cute sassy mamas that they are.  My mission is really to help women feel good in their skin and say so long to insecurity. (Great book by Beth Moore by the way! Go read it!)

Here are just a few of my favorite outfits recently:

We are still experiencing high temps here in SoCal, but pretty soon, I won’t be able to wear those cute shorts or dresses. But these have been my favorite go to pieces so far.  I love oversized tops.  And if you recognize a few of those pieces, yes, they are LuLaRoe.  I don’t know what happened, but I have become obsessed with their clothing.

I don’t sell it, but I know several amazing gals who would love to style you if you have ever wanted to try them out. Their leggings? Like buttah!

There are also some great pieces at H&M, Old Navy, Brickyard Buffalo, Jane.com, and of course, Target!!!! That is where I stock up on most of my seasonal wear.  I also love layering too, which comes in really handy when the weather cools down and you have dresses that can go from summer to fall.  Don’t be afraid to mix and match and get creative.  IG and Pinterest are great places to get inspiration so you can find a style all your own and rock it!
