In the name of love

Can you believe it’s almost Valentine’s day? As we continue to navigate through different times I find myself reaching for looks that uplift me! It may be the texture, color or even details in the outfit that make me feel I have my armor on, ready to make an impact in my day! Here are my round-ups of V-day looks for a fun and loving vibe 💘 !

Go glam and chic! Texture it IS! Do you need a faux fur to wrap yourself in?..✔ Add a pop of red or lace for delicate details! Pearls are a romantic accent to push a Hollywood vibe!

Keep your pinks shaded to coordinate like these tassel earrings and wonderful bright beaded necklaces, add unexpected pops like these pompoms and metallic bracelet from woman shops world! You GOTTA check them out! Ethically sourced and full of creative accessories from DIY jewelry fun to a complete accessory haul! (Check out my reels on my DIY Hinchology necklace)

Of course what would this love holiday be without a pink and red combo right?!! Top it off with some sugar 😋 (yes to these delightful donuts 🍩 ) and cute scarf from the dollar tree that tied this combo perfectly!! (no pun intended)

It’s no secret that I have a little obsession with Chanel! Some of my favorites are doupes (inspired by) and some are the real deal! Of course when styling anything to do with this fashion industry power house, tweed comes to mind immediately!! Add some bling (dollar store heart rings, yes please) or as mentioned before pearls!

Let’s not leave out purple! This amazing fun fabulous hat is from my friend Allo! Gifted with love I knew it was going to be a show stopper. Check her out!! A woman that knows what she is talking about!! This gorgeous hat went so well with my layered unbuttoned blouse. That’s right I said unbuttoned, LOL, to reveal the ruffle details in the blouse underneath. Add those brooches…stunner look!

Don’t forget to add the tulle!? Make it polka dots!! If all else fails pair a red sweater(like this AMAZING Chanel inspo from Cece from jewels by Joan) with simple basics like black!

OR go warm tones, tans and browns to accent light pink pops! Pink is such a wonderful detail color for all year round!! This fantastic Regina Herman Luxury bag was the star to this outfit combo! Check out the unboxing of this amazing bag the Christine on IGTV. Dress down the look with your favorite sneakers!

I hope that no matter what look you go for that the day is full of love, sweet treats and laughs! Remember YOU can inspire and make a world of difference!

Until next style,

Summer Prints

With the fantastic warm weather comes a time to wear your brights and pop!! As you put on your prints this summer be sure they lift your spirits and put a smile on your face! For myself when I feel good in what I am wearing then I tend to have a better day!! By better day I mean I take things that come my way with a positive spin, I look for the good!! Even if it’s a bad day I focus on the lesson learned!

Watering the flowers or hanging in the yard for the day? Choose a print that is a pick me up! Investing in comfy and bright dresses is always a good idea for the summer!! This time of the year the dress prints are fantastic, bright and colorful!!

Speaking of color, sometimes you ask for the flavor ice cream that matches your outfit for the Insta pic, and it becomes your new favorite, Birthday Bash! LOVE Carla Marla’s in Bellport, N.Y.!!

Living a mile from the water (and the ice cream shop) is fun, and dangerous for my waist line!! Walking on long docks and enjoying the ocean breezes is ALWAYS a great time to inspire with fashion!!!

To enhance your look this summer season don’t forget to wear a hat or invest in some type of SPF sunscreen, PLEASE!! Being in my 40’s I know a thing or two about wrinkles! BUT do it in style!! Oversized hats are the rave and can add drama to a simple cute print dress!! (Or skirt made into a strapless!!)

Many summer maxi dresses come with cloth belts. Repurpose the belt as a headband to pop the print throughout the look. Pair it with some oversized shades and you bring a certain Je ne sais quoi to your outfit!!

And of course what would summer be without a rainbow print, right!!?? Rainbow fashion pops happiness!! June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride month so why not show your support and wear your rainbow!

No Matter the print remember to wear what you want to wear!! Love the fact that your style is different from the rest!! Mixing up asthetics with your own twists is what will seperate you from the rest!!

We must not live in fear of what others may say, rather be afraid to miss an opportunity to inspire someone!

What is your favorite summer print!?

Happy on the inside and out!!! Inspired!? INSPIRE!!! #getahinch
