JennifHsieh is a space for my rambling thoughts and snaps of my everyday style. I'm based in Astoria, Queens and I share a home with my two derpy cats and my equally derpy fiancé.

Blast From the Past

I went home this past weekend for a change of environment. Sometimes, being in college for too long drives me crazy and it's nice getting to hang out with my mom for a bit. Every time I go home I always forget to pack a change of clothes and resort to using the clothes I keep at home that don't get much wear. I decided to rifle through my closet and took out these corduroy flares that I wore in this post. It's nice letting my forgotten clothes breathe for a change.

Urban Outfitters Scarf
Forever 21 T-Shirt
Abercrombie & Fitch Corduroy Flares similar
Platform Sandals from 7th grade

My mom is adorable when it comes to taking my outfit pictures. I had to teach her how to hold my camera and where the button was to take the picture. She just kept on clicking away and would randomly shout out instructions like to jump or to switch the position of my hands. I took a quick picture of her as well when I was testing out the lighting but I'm not allowed to post it. She wasn't camera-ready. :P

Oh, and I also didn't bring extra shoes home (all I had were my black boots) so I scrambled far into the depths of my closet to pull out these chunky platforms from when I was in 7th grade. I'm surprised I still fit into them! They're kind of awkward looking but it was fun clomping around - I think I'm going to put them back into hiding now.

Don't forget to check out and follow my tumblr to see what inspires me! :)

  2. lol I have long since thrown away all my middle school things but I looked pretty similar to this (without the scarf of course): t-shirt, flares, and chunky platforms hehe. I'm so glad you had a chance to go back home with all your hectic-ness.

  3. I adore those trousers, they're super cute!

  4. love love love that scarf!!! :)

  5. I think I said this last time, but I really like these flared cords! They look great on you. And platform sandals? I bet I had the same pair like 7 years ago :)

    You look so cute, and kudos to your mom for great pictures!

  6. I love how cute and bright your scarf is. :) I always forget to pack a change of clothes when I go home too and I'm always amazed by the stuff I leave at home. Dorming does that though, you always have to leave SOMETHING behind, haha.

  7. Your mom took some great photos! And those pants are a great fit. It's always fun rummaging through old clothes at home.

  8. The pictures turned out great, it's exactly the same way with my mom! Haha. Once I tell her which button to push, she starts furiously snapping away :)

  9. Love your simple yet chic style! <3 Gorgeous pictures, that's an amazing scarf!


  10. I love the scarf and how you are wearing it! So simple and cute.
