Can you believe we are in June!!??? The weather has been so amazing and has got me excited about the fun prints, color pops and bold accessories that work in spring and through summer!! So let’s get into a few of my favorite pieces that get me through season to season!
Right now my shopping focus is for summer BUT I love to get a piece that I can see me wearing layered NOW. If you have been following me on IG than you have seen my current boutique obsession more amore boutique in New Haven Connecticut. That’s where I scored this fab green floral print dress! I know this dress will be on rotation this summer.
How about adding a dress with your favorite pair of suit pants! The shorter the dress easier to make into a long tunic top layered with a great bright pant! When the weather turns hot, hot, hot I will add a pair of Bermuda shorts, brunch ready!
Let’s get into prints!! Color pops are always a good idea!!! Pairing together separate, doesn’t matter! You can easily pair the third quarter sleeve with shorts and the pants with a simple tank! So get the fun print and don’t look back!
Go with that neon pop and make it a high neck line and sleeveless! This way for spring it can be layered, under or over with a great puff sleeve or even a sheer sleeve!
Now let’s talk long sleeve and a maxi skirt!!! I LOVE taking a maxi and turning it to a strapless!!! So easy to pair with fun bold metallic accessories! The long sleeve can easily pair with denim anything!!
Kimonos or bust!!!! Do not sleep on long dusters, kimono and robe pieces to layer with jeans to suits to a hot night out with the hubs!!
I hope some of these fab spring finds make a splash this summer in your wardrobe!

Summer is meant for fun prints and lots of color! Whether it’s in the clothes or the accessories, prints make everything better! So here is a collection of prints to find, wear and love!
This Sara Joy kaftan is a must for summer! Whether running errands, heading to lunch after the beach or anyr fun summer activity. The color pops against the black creating movement in the print, I couldn’t help but pair the dollar store butterfly stickers as accessories by just adding a few bobby pins!
Try a bit of a hippy vibe with wide leg bell bottomfloral neutral pants with a fun swirl of color for a head scarf. I love pulling colors from patterns to add in to my accessories.
This Tabitha Brown X Target collaboration kimono/dressis a must with the bright pop of orange/yellow, colorful flowers and adorable white polka-dots! Paired so well with all white accessories!
Go BIG or go home is what they say! So pairing this fab lemon print, another great piece from the Tabitha Brown X Target collab, with this stark black a white print was such a great marriage!
Do you do matchy matchy? I have to say..LOVE IT!! This jump suit is a repeat and from Walmart kids. If you are on the short side you can fit in some of the larger sized children’s clothes in lots of stores.
Sometimes a look comes together with opposites. Like light and dark. Pink, maroon..same family different shade!
A must in your wardrobe is a little jean vest!! Great for a little cover up especially if your in the a.c. and then heat! Pair it with a great black floral print.
So…….which prints will you be trying this summer!? Tag me @hinchology and #getahinch and #hinchology to be featured in my stories!
Summer is here and some of us will be working!! So here’s a little suited inspo for the upcoming season in the A. C. For me these looks won’t work cause I am in a hot box of a classroom!! The less layers for me the better! But for those that need layers here are my top 3 combos for your best suited summer!
Sun dresseslayered with a tweed jacket and neutral accessories are perfect for day looks that can convert into a hot summer night out or when you leave the A.C.!
Bright and bold for those hot days. Bring out the values of one color to make everything work well together! A silk tank and bright pop jacket. Love adding print like tigerto an orange look. This was an inspirational day to say the least!! I walked with so many amazing woman to create equality for African American woman, and to remind ALL women that we are queens!!
Stepping through the summer garden chic and savvy!! Being a boss doesn’t stop because of a season!! Keep going! NEVER give up! Black and blue with a pop of turquoise will get you backyard BBQ ready straight from the office!
So remember these simple pieces to pair: Tweeds & sun dresses, pants & tanks and lots of color values for an uplifting summer filled with fashion!
Sometimes you just find a piece that is so super easy to create multiple looks with!!! So here’s a blazer that has a pop of it’s own!
If you wonder why this purple and yellow goes so well together that’s easy, they are complimentary colors on the color wheel. Loved how the butterfly clips gave a magic moment with these fabulous gloves! It’s all about the details for me in this look!
So hard to not add purple with this jacket…this time with tulle and a bit of my favorite school girl vibe!! Don’t worry I will change it up for the next look…promise!!
Grab that long Maxi skirt, make it a strapless, cinch your waist with a belt! Added metallic pops help your eye moving head to toe!
So find a jacket that you just can’t get enough of and layer it up before spring is gone!
Layered large Tee’s are a favorite for sure. I don’t know about you but this time of the year is a time to get off my winter weight and feel good about sleeveless tops , short shorts and bathing suits!
Usually my take on street wear is colorful, but sometimes keeping it dark and denim is the way to go!
Spring time calls for fun suits to layer on or take off. Let’s explore exactly what does a suit look like in a hinchology world!
Suits don’t always have to be three pieces. This look is for weekends or a dress down day suitvibe! Find a t-shirt with color pops, and grab a suit jacket with one of those bright colors. Scarves, purses and sneaker pops add to the fun.
Tweed and stripes are a bright unexpected fun pop!! Adding neutrals like creamand tanto have the attention put on the color fun.
Go neutral with pink and peach while letting the print be the star of the show!! I loved how this drop off box for used clothes matched my look.
Love, LOVE my silver mini shopper by Telfar!! Get on board with this amazing brand!! The quality and comfort is like no other!! I have my eyes set on a medium shopper next!! What color to get what color to get!? Pair a largeand small print in the same color family and you can never go wrong!!
AccessoriesAccessoriesAccessories…..I know that saying that you should take off the last accessory you added, that’s why I am always sure to add six brooches! Remember that your style is just that YOURS!! There are no rules to when it comes to what YOU like!
Layers to me are a sign of the next season to come!! Of course being a New England native, go Pats, yes Massachusettes, I adore all the seasons of the year!! But spring…OOOHHHHH SPRING!! It is my absolute favorite!!! I love the warm breezes that start to come through, colorful and gorgeous flowers and more skin!! I could go on and on!! This fashion season I am MORE than excited!!! The color pops that walked the runway during fashion week were right up my alley!! So let’s see how layers can keep you cozy but if those warm winds come, there’s a layer to peel off!!
Love a peach and pink vibe!! Spring is full of pops! But they can be pops like painted watercolor marks on the blouse! The flower socks through the mesh boots created a cute little surprise!
A little cotton candy tie dye and fringe? Yes please!! Black faux leather panel leggings with what I hope will be the last we see of the black puffer coat until next winter…lol I don’t know about you but I am ready for the warm weather!!
