Selfie Style Diary, a Meet Up and Blog News

It’s Friday!  I hope you’ve had an awesome week and, by the way, happy early Mother’s Day!

There are a few exciting changes coming up at GYPO this month that I can’t wait to tell you about.  First off, my posts are getting streamlined to be more relevant to what you really want.  They will be a little less frequent but more suited to what you’re asking for, so it’s all good!  Also, a little later in the summer, the site will be getting a makeover to be a little prettier and a lot more user-friendly.  Don’t worry, it will be the same GYPO, just better!

You may have already noticed the first change in the title of this post from Daily Style Diary to Selfie Style Diary. Selfie Style Diary will now be a monthly feature with my favorite everyday outfits from the previous month.  Other favorites features like Mother/Daughter Style, the I Feel Pretty link up and Outfit Basics will still be here, and some fun new how-to’s and easy everyday outfit formulas.  I hope you like what you see!


Last Friday night, I met up with a few of the north Texas girls from the Spring Style Me Challenge for the very first GYPO GNO!  Everyone was dressed so cute in their challenge outfits.  We had great food and conversations and I may have revealed a secret or two about the summer challenge, shhh.  I’ve never been good at keeping secrets.  🙂



Here are some of my favorite looks from the last week of the Spring Style Me Challenge.
