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.

The Home of the Brave

Did I overdo it on being patriotic today? Perhaps. At least I'm not wearing a flag wrapped around my body and running around singing the national anthem. Or at least it wasn't captured on camera and posted on my blog. ;)

This year I stayed home and watched the annual firework show from my window. I'm lucky I have the perfect view even miles away. My grandmother is currently visiting us and I haven't seen her since before I started college. It's nice having her around and I know my dad likes having her stay with us, even for only a little bit. I know when I'm older, I'm going to love having my parents visit. Having my grandmother around makes me visit I was more studious when it came to learning Chinese. I can understand everything perfectly, but my vocabulary is pretty limited. Hopefully I'll get better with my words after talking to her some more.

So I've realized that I've recently begun to wear more and more patterns and bold colors. Commuting back and forth from NYC in the summer heat is exhausting; therefore, I keep my outfits simple and light. Just to make sure my outfits don't get too boring, I rely on colors and patterns to liven things up. I recently got a few samples from Ali & Kris which is a brand based in Times Square. Everything is a really bright print and made with a light fabric so I'm super excited. I'll probably be giving away one of the tops at some point this month. What's the fun in getting samples if I can't share the love? :)
