Ever get stuck on what to wear with what, how and when??…this blog will help inspire the fun, artistic fashionista that you are!!!
Hinchology came to mind when putting unexpected outfits together. I love to mix up brands that may otherwise never meet. I refer to the elements, principals and colors of art to influence my everyday looks.
Spring was made for layers. Some days you may need a little sweater, some days are feeling so good with warm winds that just a layer of jewelry is needed! Today we look at how seasons decide for us on HOW…NOT what we should wear!
Let’s start with TWEED!! What an amazing texture it is. Able to keep your temp perfect no matter the weather! Match the colors in the tweed with different hues!
Sometimes there is no need for a jacket, so go with socks! Love how knee highs are so versatile and they can transcend to look like tights!
A trench, without question, is a staple in everyone’s wardrobe, especially for spring! The color is such a neutral and can go with everything! Sometimes you can find trenches in colors that are always a pick me up!
A sweater is another fab mix to a spring like this Regina Herman red Cardigan that is purchase with purpose. (use code: Hinch15 for 15% off) Really love a pop to mix with prints to keep the look upbeat and fun and just a bit unexpected!
Sometimes the layer is jewelry and accessories ( Jelly is back and a must for the warmer months!) Layers of metal creates a vibe that gives that shine in the Spring time sun!
And last but certainly not least….a jean jacket! Light weight but keeps the cold out! Love how a denim comes in so many different colors and styles! NEW or old they are ALWAYS in!
Hope to see you getting inspired to have fun with all kinds of different layers this season!
Want to inspire together! #getahinch #hinchology @hinchology
Easter has always had a special nostalgia of pastel color dresses hats and the smell of a new outfit. Ever since I was a little girl I have treasured easter details like earrings in the shape of kiwis!! They even had seed details. Needless to say I have always been an accessory girl! Here are a few fun spins on Easter wear. If any of you needed an excuse to get dressed up take advantage of all Holidays! (for me any day is good) If something here speaks to you shop your closet by looking for similar colors, textures, prints and shapes!! (all bold and italic words are clickable and will get you to fun fashion buys)
Go lace with pops like pink for a great vibe to bring in the holiday! Love pairing a sock and heel that are almost identical in color. It creates a new shape and and look.
Lavender…can’t get more spring vibes than that! Love adding a color pop throughout.. accessories! (who would have thought that this scarf came from Joann’s fabric store, goes to show always be on a look out for something that speaks to you!)
This dress is an oldie but a goodie from Nordstrom! Love the way the lines are so whimsical and remind me of Easter joy!
Keep everything neutral and pop that color in unexpected spots like a bow and sunglasses! Don’t forget to add a white pair of tennis sneakers like these from Comfortiva the perfect pair for comfort and style!! Use code: Hinchology for 15% off!! Let’s face it there is no time like spring for a new pair of sneakers!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and don’t forget that if you are inspired and want to share a look #getahinch, #hinchology and @hinchology to lift each other up!!
How do you change up looks when you shop your closet? I realize, as many of you do, that accessories can up your look! The star of the show is Twillies,twillies and more Twillies! These versatile pieces can be used from your head to your toes! (any bold and italic words will link to all different twillies that would work so well!!) Many that I am wearing in this are from the fabulous Cece from Jewels by Joan!! Be sure to check her our @jewels_by_Joan2!
Now that the warmer weather is on its way you will see my hair pulled back a LOT more!! Hair frizz is the worst in the humid summer months so I am getting my pony tail game on point. Pull colors from the twilly to layer head to toe! Tie a bow and on with the day you go!
Go casual with the twilly as a head band (splurge)! Pop the ends over your shoulder!
Tie them on the bottom of your joggers for an unexpected fun pop!
Match the twilly with a print by matching the colors! Pin a twilly with a brooch at your neck line for an added detail!
Wrap it as collar, then wrap it on a wrist to upgrade from business to fun!
The possibilities are endless with a little scarf called a twilly!! Remember that if you get stuck on what to wear go to the basic principles and elements of art!! Excited to see all the different styles that you will create with scarfs and twillies this Spring season!!

I am Soooo ready for Spring…are you? I can’t wait to feel that warm burst in air. Although the weather has not caught up to my wants, my vibes have and this Blog is summoning Spring to hurry up!! Dive into to spring with your own bursts of color pops and prints…and of course layers!
With warmer weather, or at least the vibes of it, come lighter layers and pastels!! Kimonos a great way to layer. Turn it backwards for a dress! Keep an eye out for details like fringe.
Flowers flowers all you see is flowers! So fun to get dark colors with splashes of bright beautiful spring flowers to create an eye catching pattern!
Bringing out the white jeans screams…better weather is on it’s way!! Be sure to check out the most comfortable shoes from Comfortiva to step into for the next season!! No joke guys these shoes are so so so amazing and the quality is fantastic!! Use code: HINCHOLOGY for 15% off!
Have you ever thought why a power suit was given its name? Well because it gives you power! Power to get through your day! Power to feel confident! Power to make an impact! Let’s explore a few different takes on what a power suit looks like, and recognize how any suit can give you power!
Mixing a jacket from one suit with pants from a different suit to create a next level power! So let’s say you choose to get two suits, if you mix them up then you really have four suits!! Shop your closet while looking for different ways to use a piece.
My Moto motto is be sure you have one in your wardrobe for ANY change of season. “Moto” refers to a jacket with zippers and studs that usually are worn by motorcyclists. They are often made from real leather, however you can find amazing vegan looks that give you all the vibe and texture that the real deal would.
We all focused on print mixing coming from the views of a personal stylist, an industry stylist and myself. Being an art teacher has enabled me to dress like I am on a runway everyday inspiring my students and allowing my brand Hinchology to go from a dream to reality.
One mix that I love is organics like florals and animals prints! The fact that wild animals live IN the wild must be the reason they always looks so great together!! I adored the add of geometric houndstooth that worked so well because of like colors and created an amazing contrast!
Similar Prints are so super fun!!!! Even though they are different tie dye the color and type of tie dye worked well topped with a headband!
Find colors in one print and match it with another! Pulling pops of color from one print unifies the look. Here you see the geometric paired with the large animal print. (small print works well with big print)
Mixing large and smaller or thick and thin prints work well together! In layers it breaks up the print and brings balance.
Pop a colorful print with a muted one. Bring out the brights against neutrals. Use Black accessories to marry the two. When you add a solid it pulls your eye from head to toe.
Go for monochromatic or color combinations. Pairing colors in different patterns work so easily! A fun pick me up to ANY look!!
Pop white, cream with light pinks to accent a show stopping print or pattern!!! Pull those print mixes within the accessories to add unexpected details.
So grateful to have been able to mix it up with my friends Jennifer and Audree Kate. Collaborating, connecting, uplifting like minded fashionistas is exactly one of the reasons I started this journey!!
Feeling inspired #getahinch and #hinchology!
