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.

Another Dynamic Duo? Why the hell not. Since we're both on tight budgets, Jasmine and I decided to remix one of our favorite items - our mustard skirts from Urban Outfitters. My love affair with mustard always resurfaces when the colder weather comes around. There's something about the fall/winter seasons that screams, "Why aren't you wearing mustard? Wear it!" Taking these self-portraits was quite challenging mainly because I chose a semi-secluded area that had low hanging branches, making it very hard to stand without having ten branches in my face. Not only that, but right when I had decided to set up shop, someone came and set up his fishing pole only a few feet away, creating a very awkward situation. Oh, and to top it all off, when I did stand and make myself visible to people walking by, one guy decided to start yelling racist statements my way. We made eye contact for a good ten seconds as he yelled at me before I decided to run away and hide.

But on another note, I love that I'm wearing a sweater and scarf combo while Jasmine is rocking the bare arms. It's always fun seeing how different the weather is on the east coast versus the west coast. It reminds me of our Dynamic Duo post from almost two years ago where I'm standing in a snow-covered forest while Jasmine is next to a beautiful, sun-filled pond. If you're new to our Dynamic Duo series, Jasmine has a Dynamic Duo page explaining our history and what it is. :)
