Portlander Problems #9

1. I found our Heart In Oregon sticker while cleaning.  We never put it on the car for some reason.  Is that still a cool thing to do?
2. Depending on whether someone considers themselves a hipster or not, somehow everything that is either bad or good is described as "hipster."  I might hear, "that dress is so hipster" (meaning it's cute).  Or, "those pants are so hipster" (meaning they are ridiculous.)  I'm getting pretty tired of that word.
3. I feel like it is my duty to explain to people that beanies and tank tops don't actually make sense together.  Either your arms are cold or your head is sweaty.  Dear Portlanders, there is no such thing as beanie and tank top weather.

Click here to see my problems from past weeks.
If you live in the Portland area and want to share some of your own, I would love if you would submit your Portlander Problems to me. 
I will post yours one of these coming weeks.  E-mail me at kiralynnpdx@gmail.com.


  1. Lol beanies and tank tops is AWFUL!


  2. Tehehe. The hipster thing is so true along with the beanie and tank tops. Makes no sense!

  3. this is hilarious! here, hipster is definitely bad, no matter the subject or phrase. and i've also never gotten the beanie in spring or summer; it's too hot!

  4. Your Portlander Problems cracks me up every single time! So so so true :)

  5. Haha! I love that "hipster" has become the multi-dimensional adjective that is is. It can mean so many things!

  6. I have to disagree about beanies and tanks - Beanies keep you just warm enough in cooler spring or fall weather, so that you can still get some much-needed sun on your arms! Just my two cents. :)


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
