Starbucks is for sure the best place to go and people watch.

Take for example the girl who came in today with the denim, embroidered ruffled jumper/dress and a winter scarf tied around her neck with a plum colored undershirt.

That type of get-up may not work so well in normal settings, but it totally works at a coffee shop.

Starbucks makes me want to go to Goodwill, buy some crazy retro off the wall outfit and just go for it!

It makes me want to get my toboggan out and a shirt with a big peace sign on it.

Get some faded blue jeans with a hole in the left knee.

Shaneboy surprised me today with a few hours to myself while he took care of the boys. So clearly I headed to Home Depot. I browsed around the plants and flowers. Then I headed to Lumber. I was checking out the crown molding because I want to put some on top of our living room windows and add wood casing around the outside. I can do it and they can help. Or if I build it they will come. Or something like that.

Just a 4-1-1- if you see me around town with a scarf around my neck in the middle of summer you will know I am just experimenting with my coffeeshopinspiredwardrobelook. Thanks. Bye.

Was it a winter scarf? Or a summer scarf?

I am quite a fan of the summer scarf. I have two.

But I agree that, in coffee shops, you can get away with eclectic or hippie outfits. I love it :) Actually, you should just be back in college. In Fayetteville, hippie is definitely "in"

I'm just not quite cool enough to pull off stuff like that...
