Holiday thanks

As the clock ticks down around the world for Christmas I wanted to send out a special holiday thanks blog to you all!

I appreciate each and every one of you that have supported hinchology and all it has to offer! Whether it’s laughing with or at me, lol when I do a voice over, finding thrills in my frills, so not trying to rhyme, or maybe it’s the truth in my words of life lessons learned.

So I wanted to take a moment and say THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart thank you for accepting me for me! For all my quirks, for all my sparkle, all my color pops!

So this blog is a thank you note to my fam, and a photo dump for the holidays! It’s last minute but that’s OK! Let’s shop your closet!! Look for like colors in pieces you already have in your closet or similar combinations that can covert into a new style same color pallet!

Let’s start with comfy cozy! Jeans, pleather leggings, ski sweaters and kimonos all the way! Dress them up a little with a pleated skirt. Have fun with metallics and details!

Don’t forget to add in some sparkle and metallics. There’s no right or wrong way!

Last but not least get your prints on! Plaid on plaid, polka dots, don’t stop there play and have fun! If it makes YOU feel good then that’s what to wear!

When pairing prints remember these few rules of thumb, go big and small, matchy matchy or geometric and organic!

Cheers to dressing in what you want and a very happy holiday!

Until next style,

Xoxo,

Nicole

Tops of the season

As summer in New York continues to be hotter than the surface of the sun, I am wearing breathable fabrics and running from a.c. to a.c. So here are some of my top tops of the summer and how versatile they will or will not be for summer! Dress them up, dress them down, what to wear now and inspire for fall!

This Tee was my son’s, a souvenir from Hawaii!! I didn’t have the heart to donate it so I used it!! Put on some cream pants, draped a colorful scarf around my waist and Ta-da!

This Chanel inspo tee really brought the color! Pairing this for fall will be easy as 1, 2, 3! Don’t leave color to summer…fall will be busting with pops of fun colors.

Tube tops are a must for the super hot muggy days! This one I may actually try layering with an oversized bow blouse! Stay tuned!

This tank is an oldie but goodie! It layers amazing with plaid during the holiday time. Or go head to toe sparkle!! There’s never a bad time for more bling! Don’t you agree?

Do a basic tank with a little detailed edge and any print skirt!! Tops like this are great for under or over in the colder months! You can never go wrong with a basic!

A mock neck tank is always a great cut for summer and even better in the fall to layer for THE perfect color block look!

A little frilled neck always keeps whimsy in your look and uplifts the soul!! I created these lace pants, don’t look at the elastic..lol!! Other than that loved them!!

So end your summer at the top, with some of these tubes, tanks and Tee’s!! Get ready to get creative with them!! Because before we know it fall will be calling our name!

Until next style

Flower power

What would spring be without flowers and floral prints!! Those warm winds that hit you and get your soul stirring with excitement for future fun in the sun!! The smell of blooming flowers is always exhilirating.  Just like a flower, we are fragile, we need love, self care and an enviornment that allows us to grow!! So breath in the crisp air, learn to be you and keep at it! The best thing to happen may be just an email away!

A floral print with dragons to kick off this blog! Add diamond accessories head to toe!! Keep the textures similar for a seamless look.

Tired of feeling like you have nothing to wear?  You have to look at each piece in a different way.  This long sleeved bowed neck dress with a frilly tank scrunched up with a hair tie..add a blazer and  everything comes together.  Don’t get stuck in thinking there’s only one way to wear something.

A little retro floral print gives a whimsical and fun take on a 70’s vibe.  Love my “know your designer” earrings by my girls Cece at Jewels by Joan.  Pearls are always classic and in style!

Or how about a flash dance vibe to get things done! Dressing down can still be cute!!!
