You can't get away from all things HIPSTER lately. Whilst i am not quite enough of a trendy-wendy to look as effortless (or in fact anywhere near) as cool as the super duper trendy lot in these photos, i can't help but feel a little bit inspired by the sudden popularity of all things Hipster.

So who is SHE? This Hipster lady i find myself FALLING for more and more each day. She is a stark contrast from my usual prettily printed and sometimes twee-clothed concoction that's for sure. I love the way this look is made up of BASICS: torn and worn weekend jeans, grey marl tees, scuffed shoes and a casual hat or headscarf - this get-up is the perfect ant-thesis to my usual attire and one which i find myself slipping into far more frequently lately.
The lifestyle has me HOOKED too. I love the idea of travelling everywhere on a bike, i mean of course i do. Of visiting hidden coffee shops, farmers markets and off the beaten track bars, restaurants and shops. I also love the urban references. Whilst i have always had myself down as a green gal through and through, i find myself more and more inspired by the crumbling and old buildings in the historic part of our beautiful city lately.
But BALANCE is the key. And i can't see myself giving up all that is a little bit twee and all of my beautiful prints anytime soon. But i wouldn't mind a trip to Manhattan with those two wheels of mine…if anyone's game.
What do you THINK? Do any of these photos inspire you..? Are you also feeling a bit inspired by all things HIPSTER lately..? I'd love to know!
