While researching my playlist for last week, I found a offbeat, kooky, hispterish holiday song. I loved it so much, I used it to start a new playlist. The playlist was kind of a joke, looking for other indie, folksy, decidedly hipterish songs. I never expected to fall in love with it. But that is exactly what I did.
I guess it makes sense, I have quite a few hipster traits. I like hipster fashion, even if I cannot pull most of it off. I love to don my glasses, rock my natural curls, and throw on a scarf to look casual and trendy. So, my fashion sense is on the hipster fringe. My love of social media is certainly a hipster trait. My increasing desire to eat a clean, wholesome diet is trending toward the hipster. My love of obscure music, movies, and books is most definitely hipsterish. You guys! Am I a closeted hipster?? I think I might be! I really hate to fully embrace the label of hipster, because in my mind hipsters are much younger (both chronologically and emotionally) than I am, but there is no doubt I skirt the edges of this subculture. I would absolutely love it if my little town became a hipster haven, and I think my covert hipster status is what makes me want to move to the west coast.
I do not think I will ever be full on hipster. No PBR or skinny jeans for me thanks. But I will proudly share this hipster holiday playlist, and tell you that I love it with the fire of 1000 suns.
