Jumpers and rompers

What are your feelings about jumpers and rompers? They are one of my favorite things to wear any season…until you have to use the bathroom…LOL. Some are easier on and off than others, however the look compares to no other!! They create a streamline affect head to toe that looks flawless and fun!!

I adore going with a monochromatic theme with a favorite color, yes you guessed it, purple!! Love putting purple on purple like my bucket bag with this romper. The purple velvet bucket bag is not available however the white leather bucket is!! Yes Please!!

Other rompers were meant to stand out like this cheetah one!! I found this at Shop Therapy in Northampton Mass for a steal!! Talk about comfort!! Paired with these Target bowed espadrille flats and I felt like I had a winning combo!!

Do you ever just choose a piece for the amazing pattern? I couldn’t resist this pattern. The color pops caught my eye!! I found this at pop up shop in my local mall a few years back. The long sleeves aren’t ideal for summer but if you have a cooler night it is THE perfect romper!!

Then of course there is the more practical romper. This was a fun wear to home depot while buying Hydrangeas to plant!(one of my favorite flowers) Paired it with my fanny pack across my body to keep up with the trends of today which also made it so so wonderful to shop hands free. The visor with the clear brim is genius, acts just like sunglasses!! I grabbed this romper a while ago from Target and this current short sleeve romper is so adorable and at such a great price!!

Talk about genius…have you tried Insomnia cookies!!!??? If you haven’t what are you waiting for!! They are so delightful!! Fresh, warm and oh so many choices!!! I had such a fun time snagging two dozed, buy one get one dozen free, by being on their loyalty program. My absolute favorite is the M&M cookie!! This jean romper was a fun and stylish way to get my sweets on. Pair a simple jumper like this with one color throughout your accessories to balance and connect head to toe!!

Of course if your jumper already has an amazing color and pattern there is little to add. I used my color wheel knowledge to add the head band to compliment the color. I found this at Target and my eye is on their sleeveless Jumper!!

Rompers and Jumpers can be the perfect addition to any season wardrobe!! Pairing details through the pattern creates a head turning look!! In the colder month you can layer with a suit jacket to elevate the look!

Each week there is a new fashion theme here on my blog and if you feel inspired tag me @hinchology and #getahinch!! Let’s inspire together!!!

Until next style!!

Fruit Fashion

What better time of the year to wear fruit prints than the summer, right!? When I put on a fruit print it instantly brings a smile to my face and a happy vibe to my outfit. The whimsy of wearing these prints is like no other!! You are guaranteed to smile while wrapped in fruit!!

What are some of your favorite fruits for summer!? I could eat watermelon and pineapple everyday!! That’s why when I found this dress in the girls department at Walmart I had to grab it!! Getting the largest size they had in girls was 14. I usually wear a small or medium in woman’s. Sometimes you can get lucky enough to find a girls size up to 16 which gives a bit more room. The cuts are a bit different fitting because lets be real they are made for a child, so sizing up is a good idea! If you find it hard to get the girls clothes to fit right at least be sure to check the fun accessories!! Am I the only one that shops in the girls department?

This head to toe oranges dress was also from the girls department at Walmart!! Though these dresses are sold out I do have this Yellow and blue striped dress in my cart right now!! The cut is loose and flowing so I know it will fit my curves!!

This banana dress is from last year at old navy. The newer version of this dress is just as fantastic!! Black and white leaves crew neck dress is on such a great deal and is perfect to add colorful fruit accessories to create a fun summer vibe!!

Speaking of fruit accessories, my pineapple print eternity scarf from Walgreens worked perfect when I pulled the green and white from the print. Sometimes there is no need to add multiple accessories if the print is fun enough!! The black and White Scarf that is available right now at Walgreens can be used in so many different ways.

Not only do I like a good headscarf I also love to wear hats and add embellishments like the pearl head band from Bougie bands. This pineapple shirt is from the boys section at the gap. Even though the boys tee’s had nothing as juicy this season the girls watermelon heart tee is cute to pair with jean shorts!! I love bright and colorful patterns and sometimes you get a bit more of that in the kids sections!

Bright color pops always catch my eye and so do a stack of french macaroons from trader joe’s (heehee). If you don’t know this about me they are one of my favorite desserts. I thought it would be fun to bring out my antique straw basket purse that was gifted from my pop, it reminded me of a huge macaroon. Pairing it with my DIY Crayola model magic fruit necklace and my sparkle Mulberry and Grand pants made for a fun afternoon!! These cream lounge pants would give the same wonderful look.

In my eyes ANYTHING purple is a yes….its’ my favorite color!!! Walmart delivered again from the girls section!! My purple dress is not available anymore however this pineapple sunglass print tank dress is and such a great pick for these hot humid days!

Creating this post was so much fun and I wanted to leave you with the famous quote:

“When life gives you lemons you make lemonade!” Everyday may not be perfect however you can choose to have a great day everyday!! Perspective is what’s needed to do that!! So if you are needing some sweet lemonade added to your day try this lemon dress from Shein!

As the summer months unfold with beautiful weather get your fruit fashion on!!!

Have a favorite fruit look #getahinch and tag me @hinchology to inspire together! You can now follow my blog through Bloglovin’!!

Until next look!!!

Swim Suit Issue

This may not be the SI (Sports Illustrated) swimsuit issue but it’s MY swimsuit issue!! Swimsuits can be so much fun when you finally find the right fit!!! It has taken me my whole life to know how to accept and love my body!!! I have had a child (my Frankie) which gave me stretch marks (battle wounds as I like to call them) that I am proud of!! Our bodies were meant to be different!! Ever heard ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!?”

That doesn’t mean I don’t adore a cover up! LOL!! They are so easy to go from being on a beach towel in the sand to being in line for ice cream at the Mr.Softie truck!! I absolutely love bright popping colors or embellishments!! This way you are always styling!!

Even though some cover ups don’t always do what they were meant to, cover up, they create a nice layer to have while running to and from the beach or store!! I love to invest in the basics!! Sarongs are so versatile. Tied around the waist as a skirt or crossed around your neck as a dress!!

Look for loose fitting dresses to use for cover ups!! They will give you a fun look and versatility to take on the day!

One accessory that I can’t seem to get enough of this season (and maybe ALL seasons) is turbans!! The ease of just throwing it on for a little hair control is fantastic!! The look is classic old Hollywood!

The secret is in the accessories!! They can make a pair of linen pants look fabulous!!

Accessories are a way to enhance your look! Surfboards are in the category of summer accessories (hee hee)!! A paddle board is also on the list!! Living so close to the water and knowing what a great core work out it is I really would love to invest in one!! For now we will just match our surf board!!

When you are looking to purchase coverups consider that they should be able to take you from a backyard water fight to an afternoon of BBQ fun!! I love to use my LBS (little black suit) with a simple black skirt and change of hats. Again sometimes all you need is some new and fresh accessories to make an old suit look good!

No matter where you go this summer do it in style!!!

You don’t need to buy a whole new collection of bathing suits, focus on accessories like coverups, fun hats and jewelry!!!

Feeling inspired? Want to inspire? #getahinch to be featured in my story!!!

Be beautiful on the inside and out!!

Black and White fashion

What’s your view on black and white fashion?! I feel that this combination is versatile and complimenting to everyones’s figure!!! Whether you stay true to a 50/50 combo head to toe or pair it with pops of your favorite colors, its a hit!!! Having a go to LBD (little black dress) or a pair of white skinny jeans, keeps you styling all season long!!

In black and white fashion EVERYTHING works together!!! Use stripes, polka dots or houndstooth….No matter the pattern it will work!! Add your favorite Pearls and crystals to create a polished look!!

Be sure to have your basics in both white and black!!! This way you can pair quickly and easily!!

Mixing large and small prints together works impeccably! I favor turning skirts into strapless dresses this time of the year! The idea that I can get several different stylish looks from one piece in my closet is a win-win!

Finding balance in an outfit can be as easy as using belts as headbands, like the houndstooth print below!

Its more than fantastic to have such an easy and quick go to for summer fashion right!? Better yet you can pair it with ANY color pop!!! Adding a colorful hat, necklace, scarf, or shoe can be the perfect pairing.

Fashion is as you know way more than black and white, however when you want to run out for a walk or a drive to your favorite ice cream spot, grab black and white!!

Your fashion can ignite happiness and inspire others!!

Do you have a Black and White go to outfit!?

I have been so impressed and inspired by all my wonderful Insta tribe, (My Instagram family) and their #getahinch !! LET’S INSPIRE TOGETHER!!!

Don’t forget……have fun!!!
