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.

Jenny From the Block

Popbasic Gray Dress (similar), DKNY Trenchcoat (similar), Peep Toe Mesh Wedges c/o LuLu*s, Urban Outfitters Canvas Satchel, What Time? Watch c/o Rakani

It's been a whirlwind of an adventure down in D.C. this past weekend and, for once, I took way less pictures than I normally do being the obnoxious camera fiend that I am. I was too busy doing lots of walking and even more eating and drinking. No regrets, dudes.

Now I'm pooped beyond belief but still ready to tackle the week - mainly because there's a light shining at the end of the week and it's called HALLOWEEN. Then again, for once I don't even have my costume planned yet and I'm starting to get nervous because things like this are apparently really important to me. The [haunted] clock is ticking!

What are you guys dressing up as?

There Is a Way to Be Yourself

Madewell Chambray Shirt, White Drop Waist Dress c/o LuLu*s (similar), Geometric Necklace c/o Gogo Philip (similar), Tan Georgia Boots c/o LuLu*s

Even though I'm pretty settled in my apartment by now, I still haven't taken any pictures of it to document my second New York City home. So, here's a slight sneak peek of the lovely, little abode I share with Jeremy. We did a good job of combining both of our personal touches to the place and I'm super proud of creating a home we both love. 

This weekend the two of us are heading down to Washington D.C. to visit his friends from his time teaching abroad in Turkey. I'm super excited to see them again but I'm also excited just for the warmer weather, even if it's only by a few degrees. Sure, I love my sweaters and boots and all, but nothing beats the feeling of the sun shining down on your skin. YOU KNOW.

Officially Cold Weather Season

Forever 21 Brown Dolman Coat (similar), Black Striped Midi Dress c/o LuLu*s (similarsimilar), Black Leather Skirt c/o LuLu*s (similar), ASOS Thigh High Socks, Aldo Black Oxford Wedges (similar), Two-toned Tote Bag c/o Chicnova (similar)

I know it's officially cold weather season (in the world of Jen) when this coat comes out of the hall closet and onto my shivering body. This coat will forever be my favorite (until a new favorite suddenly appears, obviously). Not only because it's fantastic, but because I scored it for a mere $10. Pretty sure I've been bringing that fact up in a blog post around this time every year but it was a really proud moment, you guys. It's like your child winning an award for being the fastest kid in his third grade class and you're like, "things can only go uphill from here!", but not really because I've never been a mother and I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Yeah, it's definitely about that time I leave work an head to happy hour for a couple of a drinks.

You're Just a Hideaway

Urban Outfitters Mustard Cardigan (similar), American Apparel Polka Dot Chiffon Skirt (similar), Shoemint Crossbody Purse, Madewell White T-shirt, Georgia Tan Boots c/o LuLu*s 

This past weekend I learned that (1) drinking all the booze before eating the brunch at a boozy brunch with destroy you. (2) There's no such thing as too much Greek food in Astoria. (3) You should always have three desserts at once if you can. (4) I can surprisingly rock hot pink lipstick and (4) I can now make dumplings on my own from scratch (although they might still need some work). 

Weekend well spent.

A Complete Sucker for Fall

Madewell Texturework Sweater, American Apparel Polka Dot Chiffon Skirt (similar), Two-toned Trenchcoat c/o RD Style (similar), Two-toned Heels c/o LuLu*s (similar) 

I'm definitely not meeting my quota of apple-picking, pumpkin carving, or fall foliage pictures this year. Maybe I'm being a bit pre-mature worrying about this since it's only mid-October, but it's a real concern compared to previous years and I just realized this morning that I need to step up my game. So far I've only taken a pumpkin home from work and had the coffee lady put some pumpkin syrup in my coffee one time.

That Canadian Tuxedo Life

Madewell Chambray Shirt, Lucky Spades Jeans c/o Level 99 Denim (similar), Black Ankle Strap Heels c/o LuLu*s (similar), What Time? Watch c/o Rakani Watches 

The rain has been falling down pretty consistently for the past few hours and, instead of gently putting me to sleep, it kept me up for a good portion of the night. Might be because I have so much on my mind lately that it has the opposite effect. It also makes the commute to work a lot less appealing compared to cuddling up on the couch with a hot cup of tea.

But whatever rain, you're harmless today, so I'm going to tackle you full force with my trusty umbrella. Come at me, rain.

...but like seriously, don't come at me too hard since I put some extra effort into my hair today.

Mornings in Athens Square Park

Two-Toned Trench Coat c/o RD Style (similar), H&M Oatmeal Sweater (similar), Yellow Drop Waist Dress c/o LuLu*s (similar), Black Crossbody Satchel c/o Pink Basis (similar), Black Ankle Strap Sandals c/o Via Spiga 

I remember always loving the winter when I was younger, spending my days anticipating winter wonderlands and snow days. Now, living in New York City, I've started to dread the colder weather. Since the streets are heated from all the activity underground, it makes it hard for any sort of snow to stick to the sidewalks, so you just have the bitter cold but none of the winter beauty.

I've only just accepted trench coat weather and I'm too stubborn to pull out my heavy duty coats and jackets. My denial that winter is right around the corner is usually also the way I get sick. Whomp.

Searching the World for What's Right Here

Gap Utility Jacket (similar), H&M Polka Dot Tank (similar), Urban Outfitters Mauve Skirt (similar), H&M Brown Belt (similar), Brown Cut-Out Wedges c/o Wayfair (similar), Forever 21 Beige Crossbody Bag  

I recently lost my favorite headphones and I've resorted to stealing Jeremy's big ass headphones for my morning and evening commutes. They straight up make me look like someone trying too hard to be a hipster, a basic bitch, or a healthy combination of the two. But I have no shame so they work just fine. Just fine.
