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.

Pseudo Athlete for a Day

Gray Sweatshirt c/o Dresslink, Gap Black Overalls (similar, similar), Converse White Canvas All-Star Sneakers

Wearing clothing that has vague undertones of athleticism makes me feel more adequate at sport-related activities than I actually am. 

In fifth grade I was hands down the fastest runner in my class by far. That was the peak of my career as an athlete. Then I went through puberty and my body decided that enough was enough; running was a big no unless I wanted all my muscles to cramp up. Sure, I dabbled in tennis classes and had the most pathetic tryouts for the junior varsity team. Sure, my dad made me play baseball and basketball outside our house everyday during the summers in an attempt to be well-rounded. But none of it stuck and now I spend more time in front of a computer screen than with sporting equipment in my hands. 

But these outfits...they give me a chance to pretend and to believe. Olympics 2016, here I come. 

...and yes. I do think that just adding four stripes on my sleeve qualifies as sporty. 


  1. This is the fricking cutest way to wear overalls, ever. Period. You win the internet today!

  2. You look so cute. I love your hair in these and you're totally pulling off those overalls.

  3. I am very much a pseudo girly-girl. I wear a lot of heels and skirts, but I assure you. I don't do much girly stuff hahaha. I use to be a tomboy, but all that changed when I grew up and got low self-esteem hahaha.

    Love the overalls! I have a pair but I had no idea how to style them only now <3

  9. Overalls! Been wanting to get a pair for a good while now.

    If your dad is like any typical Asian parent, I can imagine him making you do activities. But alas, most of us spend more time in front of our computer screens. There's just so much more to do there! *click*
