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.

Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Night

I'm pretty convinced that the entirety of New York City has turned into an easy bake oven and everyone walking down the streets is starting to get a little overcooked. Woof. Looks like those beautiful yet painful New York City summers have officially kicked in full force. I couldn't even bring myself to wear my denim jacket for a single outfit shot. My arms can't take that kind of unbearable heat.

On another note, this outfit right here is one of my favorites as of recently. It's super low maintenance, took barely any effort to throw together, and there's birds all over this beautiful skirt. You can never go wrong with animal prints, am I right? Well, I guess that depends entirely on the animal. I'm not sure how much I would love cockroaches printed on a dress.

Also, can we talk about the little, old man peeking out from behind the door in the second photograph above? He kept poking his head out for a good five minutes and he made plenty of appearances in the numerous photos that didn't make this post. I wonder what he must have been thinking about?


  1. that skirt is lovely...
    i went for a walk awhile ago here in my city, and i was sweating buckets!!! summer is really all over us! hahaha! :D

  2. I love your entire outfit - especially since it's in pastel colours (: So feminine and lovely (:

  3. Oh hello little man! I wouldn't have even noticed him. He totz tried to photobomb, but your beauty is too distracting for it to have worked. MMHMM, das right~ n____n

    I love that you described your city as an easy bake oven. That made my day.

    And also I love your pattern mixing. That light blue on your skirt... swooon! You're kind of dressed like a robin egg, and I dig it.

    FINALLY eeeEEEEE~ your comments are always so sweet and make me feel like I am on top of the worrrrrlldd! I can only hope I will land my dream job. I would be so super happy...! I adore you forever and ever, Jen, and I hope that's engrained in your lovely little brain! And I still keep your cute little keychain you sent me forever n ever ago on my keys. :)

    1. Ali, I seriously cannot find a way to express how amazing you are. But you are. Hands down, THE most amazing.

  4. You find the cutest things at h&m and i can never find them! love the tank. And its hard to believe its hot up there by looking at these photos! You look gorgeous!

  5. I love this outfit with the dots and the birds forming dots. I love the white top and sky blue skirt. So crisp.

  6. Hahah 'overcooked' people :P
    You look NICE! Love the bird print c:Xx

  7. I think the older gentleman peeking out must have been enjoying the chance to see a fashion model doing a photoshoot. Your Carlie pleated bird print skirt is pretty and looks like an excellent choice for the oppressive hot and humid weather we've been having here in New York. The skirt's pastel colour is nice. I don't have air conditioning so I'm sitting here typing in my lingerie and not looking forward to going out into the hot sunlight. I hope it cools down some soon.

  8. Love the color combination, clean and refreshing! That skirt is so pretty! x

  9. Lovely outfit, the light fabric is a great way to stay cool in this summer heat.

  10. I love these easy-breezy looks, and the mixed prints are so cute!
    I won't complain about the heat, I love summer.

  12. Birds and polka dots? How cute is that!
    I love the colour of that skirt too- everything about it is just so darn adorable.


  13. love the skirt with the dots! two small prints go together just great. :]

  14. This outfit is beautiful and I absolutely love the print/color on the skirt. And now you have me missing my easy bake oven.

  15. A gorgeous outfit, perfect to help you beat the heat a bit.

    Lol at your little old man. I've wondered what people have thought when they see a photo session happening too.
