Old Made New with GYPO

Today is the last link up for Spring Fever Fashion with The Blended Blog. We’ll be starting a new series next week called Fashion Files Link-Up.

The Blended Blog (1)

Well, I have to start with a little story today. Three years ago this month I did my first Style Challenge with Alison at Get Your Pretty On. That challenge is where I “met” most of the ladies that I collaborate with through The Blended Blog. From our first Style Challenge we started blogging together and created our very own collective blog. And I feel as though I’m going full circle today because I am featuring a gorgeous scarf that Alison created. This is only one from the gorgeous collection, which can be found here.

I thought it was also appropriate {and fun} to style this scarf with a couple of dresses that I purchased while I was participating in various challenges with Alison. If you’ve been here for any length of time, you have seen my grey sheath. It’s a workhorse! Since it’s Spring it needs a little pop of color. *Disclaimer – remember the wind in Texas!* Oh, the wind…will it ever stop?!

GYPO scarf

GYPO scarf

Y’all! This scarf! It’s silk! It’s beautiful and so colorful. But there is so much more. The design was created by an artist in Brooklyn, NY and the scarves are manufactured in the US. And to top it off a percentage of the proceeds are donated to a local domestic violent shelter in Dallas, TX. Y’all! These are all things that I love! People using their talents to create, creating here in the US and helping people in need. It’s all very beautiful to me!

I’ve also styled my striped sheath several times on the blog. I never really had any stripes until I came across the GYPO Style Challenges. Y’all that’s when I fell in love with stripes. That’s also when I fell in love with floral. I guess GYPO Style Challenges really did help my style!

Love these colors together. Love stripes and floral. Don’t they just scream “It’s Spring?” Oh, yes they just embody the beauty of Spring.

Friends, you can purchase your scarf here. The collection is truly gorgeous. Each of the scarves will add beauty to your wardrobe and find a place in every season. I’m excited to wear this now but also in the future. You’ll see it again.

And now, please add your posts to Spring Fever Fashion Link-Up! Can’t wait to see your beautiful selves!

    Great job styling your scarf! Mine arrived this week! I can’t wait to style them.

    • Thanks, Fonda! Looking forward to some beautiful looks from you!

  • Living on Cloud Nine

    What a beautiful scarf and looks so great with both dresses! I would wear the heck out of that this spring! Such gorgeousness on the most gorgeous lady!

    • Thank you, sweetheart!

  • Anna Marcus

    I really like the scarf, it is very lovely. I think this is a great accessory that helps to elevate a look to a new level

    • Thank you, Anna! The scarf is just a beautiful piece!

  • Ooh love this! Such a beautiful way to “spring-ify” a darker dress, but even better with the stripes. Such a happy combination! And I live in dresses like that striped one all summer.

    • Dresses are the best pieces for summer! So much cooler than pants and so much easier to wear!

  • I can not even believe that it has been three years!! So happy that Mr. Pushed me to try it and I got to meet all of you!! Love the scarves and all of the pretty designs.

    • I know, right! So glad we all met through GYPO!

  • Kim

    do you have a link to the striped sheath dress? Love the colors of the stripes!

    • Hi Kim! You might be able to find one similar on Old Navy. I purchased this a couple of years ago from there. Good luck, dear!

  • Beautiful pop of colour for your beautiful face!

  • Jodie Filogomo

    I’ve only just started appreciating scarves since I’ve been blogging, Carrie!! And look at how well this one works with a solid dress and the striped one!! It’s truly gorgeous!

    • I owned scarves before blogging but sure did not know what to do with them. Yay, for blogging!

  • Christy

    I love the stripes and floral together. It is the only pattern mixing I do successfully. Or so it seems….

    • I love them together too! Always so easy and so pretty!

  • You look beautiful! Such a great color on you.

  • Nicole Mölders

    I love sheaths. The striped one is awesome!

    • Me too, Nicole! Thank you!

  • I love you with bangs! (I know you have had them for some time now – but just wanted to say it again.) That is a wonderful story behind the scarves – and they add a pop of color.

    Daily Style Finds

  • Such a beautiful scarf! I also love when a product is made here in the US and is used for good!! I love it the most with the striped dress, so bright and beautiful!

    Pumps and Push-Ups

    • I love products for good! Just warms my heart!

  • Nicole Mölders

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I love your striped sheath with the scarf. So chic. You look stunning!

  • You styled it perfectly. At fist I was like it’s gorgeous with the gray dress because the scarf colors really stand out but then I saw it with the stripes and I think I may have loved it even more!!! Have a great weekend.

    • Thanks so much, sweetie!

  • Yay for you and Alison. That scarf is a gem. Fluttery like butterfly wings. Took your simple striped dress to a whole new place. Like a Monet you wear around the neck.

    • It really is beautiful! Of course, I would expect nothing less from Alison than perfection! She’s a great stylist.

  • Wow Carrie! I love the blue on you, so striking! The scarf is fabuloius on both dresses!
    thanks for linking!
