priviliged white kids who subsribe to the hippie lifestyle (because they can) since they have no worries about money, a job etc. They can then devote their lives to eating organic, following Phish, and wearing dreadlocks (no need for job interviews).
Sarah is a trustafarian. It's totally evidenced by the combination of her brand new car and nice digs with her "earthy" clothes and dreadlocks.

Rich kids "slumming it" and thinking they're being cool by smoking pot and living out their "creative" fantasies that usually don't come to anything, in between travelling to exotic third world places like Bali, Morocco, or Thailand, more or less like a cross between a neohippie and a hipster (although there is considerable overlap between trustafarians and both of those other subcultures) commonly found in the Venice, Echo Park,Atwater Village, and Silver Lake neighborhoods in L.A. (although Silver Lake is getting a bit too expensive for all but the wealthiest trustafarians, so some are going to Hollywood and assuredly some will go to Koreatown soon if they haven't already). The term is derived from a combination of "trust fund" and "Rastafarian".
Abbott Kinney Blvd. in Venice is riddled with trustafarians who claim to be working on film scripts or doing art but nothing they're doing ever amounts to anything.,

A word that combines Trust-Fund with Rastafarian. A well to do hippie type person that is not encumbered by a job and usually has hair matted into dreadlocks. While not especially materialistic they have resources that enable them to attend a multitude of events such as Burning Man, all forms of jam band concerts, enviromential protests and the like.
Those guys that can afford to follow a Jam-Band around the country must be trustafarians or something.

a. a spoiled rich white kid who smokes pot.
b. a person who, in an act of rebellion has taken to smoking pot, pan-handling, and following grateful dead rip-off bands during the week, and then returning to his or her parent's cozy home in the suburbs during the weekend.
c. one who lives with poorer people in an attempt to gain credibility, or street-cred, while disguising the trust fund they actually live off
Don't let that guy smoke any of your stash, he's a trustafarian, and never has his own to share.

Portmanteau of trust fund and rastafarian. A hippie poser. Essentially a rich kid who smokes weed, wears hats designed to hold dreads when he in fact has none, and uses the word "peace" to say bye.

A trustafarian is a spoiled rich kid most often still in college who decides to adopt a neo-hippie lifestyle to fit in and because their parents are supporting them with money which is then used to buy drugs. This way trustafarians can afford to go to jam band concerts and dance like a prick, and generally become a complete burnout on their parents tab. In a rather ironic twist some trustafarians were former fraternity/sorority members and have decided to discard their former conservative ideals all to common within the greek system and a adopt a more progressive liberal outlook. All in the pursuit of the next drug and alcohol bender courtesy of daddy's credit card.
Serious student: Man this marketing test tomorrow is gonna kill me. I've been studying all night!

Trustafarian: No way bro! I'm hitting up Phish tonight. Gonna be absolutely filthy. Trey is gonna melt my face. Gonna straight RAGE! Already got my goody bag ready for the show if you know what I mean.

Serious student: Wow... his dad even PAYS him to be a piece of shit.
