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!
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!
As the summer season is nearing the end I will gravitate to looks with layers!! I love linen and a bit of lace!! Linen gives great shape and form while lace adds texture to an everyday outfit!!! I do love summer, a favorite part of the year, however there’s nothing like fall dressing! So let’s get into the beauty of seasonal shifts and venture into these amazing fabrics!
I love the transition that comes with each season, especially when layering is involved!! I took my Bachelorette party dress, yes a few years old, and layered it with this fantastic up graded tee with dollar store beadsand a fringe vest!! Look at your dress as a possible skirt or maybe a top!! When you can see your wardrobe worn in different ways the possibilities are endless.
Talk about a necessity! LBD.. (little black dress)! Most of us have more than one, however I am happy to say this linen has lasted the test of time!! Add pops of color at the waist with belts! Keeping everything a basic black accessory except one special piece creates a show stopper in the look!
Lace is a great detail added to simple pants or a skirt! Pair it with sneakers to be fall ready for pumpkin picking and colorful nature walks on trails uncharted.
Summer to me screams fun! Care free, not knowing what time it is and playing with prints! In this blog you will be seeing spots, dots that is!! See how polka dots play a whimsical approach to a simple print that anyone…yes even you, can wear!
Ah the marriage of stripes and dots...so simple and satisfying! Pop this combo with a great color!! These crayon pillars were created in my art club a few years back and I absolutely love them! Reminding me every time I show up to continue to be good, try hard and NEVER give up!!
What is one of your favorite treats for summer? Of how I love my sweet treats, however there is nothing like fresh fruit in the summer!! So here is a spin on how fun, flirty and in season fruit prints are for the hot summer months!!
Sometimes fruit frills are hard to find in adult sizes!! Go to teen or kids! I found this colorful dress in the girls department at Walmart! I got the largest size available then layered it like a t-shirt!! Stay with colors in the print for pairing layers and accessories. Here’s a cute adult size fruit print dress!
I did the same thing here with this tank dress! Tuck it in for a top and pair with a like color for a monochromatic vibe.
So bananas about this print, sorry had to! This is an oldie but a goodie!! Found the exact dress here!!! Do you shop Poshmark, or Ebay? This is a great way to be a fashionista that is a conscious buyer!!
Orange you having fun with this blog yet..lmao again couldn’t resist! Now is the time to find amazing prints for woman, they are whimsical with frills. This dress is the Perfect summer party dress!!
So will you be mixing up and playing with fun fruit prints the summer?

Summer calls for fun in the sun, bold prints and magical moments! Putting together these looks definitely brought me back to Hawaii, Aruba and Bahamas, 🎶come on pretty mama🎶 ok yes I am that corny and that old..Lol! So even if our destinations may not be to a tropical paradise we can have fun and bring the vibe through our wardrobe!
White dresses don’t have to be plain…look for pieces that have embroidery pops at the neck. It brings a little color splash and adds details without layers of jewelry!! Be resourceful and reuse a gift ribbon for a headband!! The more creativity the better your style will be!
Nothing like an island vibe like an island print!! This dress is a favorite staple in my wardrobe!! I wear it alone, layered with another skirt or a sweater!! It’s a super fun unexpected print to see ALL year long! Flower accessories are a must!!
