Second Guessing Hipsterhood…

I live in the land of the hipsters.  However, not everyone in the Minneapolis metro area is a hipster.  The other day when I was out shopping and walking through H&M I overheard the funniest conversation between two girls in their jeans and school sweatshirts…

Girl One:  So, I really tried to get into the whole hipster thing…but it really was too much work…

Girl Two:  I know, right?!  So hard…I just do not know how they do it?!

And then the convo went on, but I had to walk away because I had to walk away to avoid laughing in their faces.  News flash…if you are trying to be a hipster you are already failing miserably.  Especially since the average hipster will deny his or her hipsterhood.  It isn’t a title or identity one should be aiming for – it defeats the purpose of trying to avoid labels.   So, I am not sure where I fit in this whole issue – all I know is I am not trying to be a type of any sort.  I wear my business clothes during the day and then have a more relaxed look for the night.  Give me some leggings, a mini, over sized sweater or flannel, boots, and if I am cold a big warm scarf for my post-yoga look as I head out for the night.  If that makes me a hipster, great…if not, even better.  And if I never know, I am alright with that, too – because unlike the lovely ladies I overheard at H&M, I do not want to try – I just want to be and wear what is me.

So – would you call yourself a hipster or not?  Would you say your style is an expression of you or something you are trying to make yourself to be?

Much love,

  1. So funny! The whole hispter thing makes melaugh actually. I mean I have many a hipster friend but I definitely am not a hipster. I’m not trying to be anything but me though. I’m too old to try too hard to fit any label. I just dress to please myself 🙂
