A little luau

How is your summer going!???? I can’t believe that it’s the end of July!! Ayaya!! We have had a packed summer so far with some work, lots of fun and memories and home improvements!! It always feels good to check off a few things on the to do list when you get a little time off! I’m enjoying dressing for backyard bbq’s, birthday celebrations and brunch! So here’s a little ode to luau and all the magic that comes with them!

Loving a linen floral dress. It ALWAYS brings vacation vibes! Adding gold and a shade lighter metallic turqoise, a bit of white and everything comes together!! All I’m missing is the grass skirt!!

Try a simple long sarong or extra large scarf! Wrap around your waist for a long or short skirt by folding in half. Stripes, no matter the color, and white become a go to basic!! The pink went well with the colorful print! Staying on trend with a bit of macrame with the bag and for added texture my visor and sandals!

Add your own twist of luau with bright colorful cotton pants! Use a scarf as a top by tieing the bottom two corners of your scarf around your waist and the top two around your neck!

Here’s another take on luau with a silk body suit and layered beads! Never enough details.

Until next style,

Summer print pops

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 bottom floral 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/dress is 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!

Until next style,

Dresses of spring

What is a spring dress? For me that includes all kinds! From maxi to sun and a little bit of flow…it’s all about the details that you add with the dress to give the title spring!

Great cotton neutral wrap dresses can pop with layers and bigger than life bags!

This white embroidered beauty is from Mexico! It’s absolutely hands down a favorite!! love adding colorful accessories to give a celebration kind of vibe!

It’s not exactly a dress but adding what I call my wrestling belt created a dress vibe! The hot pink knee highs took it to a whole new level!

Loved the way that this yellow popped with the cloudy gray! The shape was fun and an instant mood boost! Gave a bit of royal vibes!

Fairytales are made of metallic fabrics and dainty necklaces! Working in like colors to your earrings and accessories creates a match made in heaven!

Textured lace, Jean jackets and evil eyes will keep the pep in your spring step!

Kaftans and an art show…yes please!! Keeping things easy breezy when on the go!

Denim gives far from the blues!! Pop it with colors from the print. I always find navy to be so flattering!

Love using hot summer day dresses in spring!! Great for layering and bringing in a little hot weather vibe!

Simple cotton dresses can be cinched at the waist to create a great shape!! Definitely invest in a neutral fringed sweater to have through chilly summer nights and well into fall and even winter!!

Grab that white linen dress and add tweed for some great texture!! Pair the look with a neutral! Hats are always a great accessory addition for spring!

So start getting use of your summer wardrobe by layering before spring is over!!

Until next style,

Street wear

This time of year layers are necessary!! I’m not always dressed to the nine. Good comfy street wear is ! What’s my definition of street wear? Fun, comfy, layers and a bit of bling!

Love a great pair of Adidas, some color pops and an unexpected pattern like this Valentino clutch!
