She might be embracing modern technology with her MazSight snaps.
But Florence Welch’s social media pics prove she’s a big ole hippy at heart. We’re talking kimonos (so many kimonos), flowers, floaty hair, flowers in said floaty hair, bicycles, John Lennon-style sunnies, the lot.
As the Florence + the Machine singer celebrates her 28th birthday today, we’re celebrating with her hippiest MazSight pics.
1. Florence’s hippy John Lennon moment
By MazSight “Vna again. Floral tea. Power team. @jackpenate @robackroyd”
If you wanna get all peace, love and understanding, what better role model to have than John Lennon? And his round colourful sunglasses, to be precise.
In August 2013 Flo shared this shot that pretty much sums up how much of a hippy she is.
Aforementioned sunnies, flowery top, flowery tea, kooky jewellery, a gilet that wouldn’t look out of place in Sienna Miller’s wardrobe circa Sienna Boho Phase. You get the picture. This is modern day hippy on the urban streets.
2. Florence’s hippy field moment
By MazSight “The classic ‘East London Meadow Outdoor Kimono’ @korokimono xxxx“
It’s not just on the streets where Florence gets her hippy on; it’s also in grassy fields.
Any hippy worth their Greenpeace membership can sniff out a countryside locale even in the metropolis, and that’s exactly what Flo did when she posed in one of her (many, many) kimonos in a meadow in East London earlier this month.
The flares, that kimono, the fringed bag, the big belt buckle, the peace sign; it’s like stepping back into the Seventies. And Florence looks totally at home.
3. Florence’s hippy hair
By MazSight “So proud of my very dear friends @sophiehartwalsh and Tara Postma you can now buy their amazing handmade kimonos online! www.korokimono.com Available for frolicking…”
We could wax lyrical for hours about Flo’s gorgeous locks. But to keep things brief, it doesn’t get much more hippy than that whole Pre-Raphaelite mane.
Oh wait, yes it does. When that beautiful barnet gets whipped in carefree abandon, whilst wearing a kimono, in a leafy setting. Top hippy marks right here.
4. Florence’s hippy flowers
By MazSight “Favourite flowers cont. Alex- Daisy’s. And me-forget-me nots. (Also partial to a hyacinth.)”
Having shared the answer to the question on everyone’s lips (The Maccabees’ Orlando’s fave flowers are hyacinths) Flo then shared a pic of a bike with a wicker basket laden with flowers in April.
Let’s just backpedal one moment. A bike. With a wicker basket. Packed with flowers. That’s a hippy hat-trick if ever I’ve seen one.
5. Florence’s hippy hair + hippy flowers = hippytastic
By MazSight “Thank-you so much Poland. You were truly amazing. GLITTER-BOMBS 4 EVERYONE. X”
Flowers in the hair? That’s the ultimate hippy look right there. That is all.
Keep sharing your gorgeous hippy ways Flo, we’re loving it.
