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 weekend has come and gone and I'm about ready to flop into bed and pass out. The weather has been incredible lately - cloudy, overcast skies with temperatures ranging from the mid-70's to the low 80's. My heart has a soft spot for weather exactly like this. Now if only the subway stations weren't mini-ovens that squeeze the sweat out of you.

I spent plenty of time with my boyfriend's two nephews this weekend and there's something about it that makes me feel so strangely adult. Maybe it's also because I'm not used to having family to visit since all of my family is across the country or overseas. Even my immediate family is less prone to having get togethers that often unless I initiate something. Makes me crave a visit to Taiwan just to be surrounded by family, even if I don't know them as well as I would want to.



  1. I love the tee knotted over the skirt like this, such a great summery look!! I have that skirt too and just love it

  2. beautiful look! i love the jean jacket paired with the mustard skirt.

  7. Perfect location to shoot that outfit in with the yellow on yellow. Love the print on your shirt and those strappy heels.

  8. Overcast skies in the 70's-80's is like my DREAM WEATHER. Girl, I just felt another connection with you. It's like the best bike riding weather and good for picture taking and all sorts of things. I love me some clouds. Mmm.

    The background in these pictures is so cool?!? AND YOU"RE SO CUTE MOTIONING TO THE TEXT ON THE WALL. Look at you. Precious. And your skirt even matches. Such a good skirt.

    1. My skirt is a good one - always does as it's told. ;)

  9. Reading this made me empathize with you - I wish we could be surrounded by family. Whenever I visit the Philippines and spend a month with our overwhelming family (seriously, like new cousins are there to meet every time I go back...) its a nice feeling. I've never had that here in the States.
    Ah well. Anyway, love that cute little skirt and how you knotted your top!
    Plus, that text in the background, haha, love that photo :)

  10. My dad is currently in Taiwan, since his job is there, but my mom and my brother are still on the East coast, luckily! :)

  11. Ooh girl, I love how you're wearing that denim jacket!! I was shocked when I reached the end and discovered it's Forever21. You seriously have a way of finding the diamonds in the rough at that store!

    And I'm with you about being around children, especially family's children- even though I still feel like a kid, there's something about being around the under-12 set that makes me feel my age. It must be hard to be so far away from your family, and I think it's brave of you to share that on here!


  12. Oops- looks like my comment appeared as a reply to Marien by accident! My apologies.

  13. love your skirt!! pretty!Irene Wibowo

  14. Lovely to be able to spend some time with your boyfriend's family though.

    You look darling in this- love the jean jacket!

  15. I am going to recreate this outfit ASAP! Love love love love!
