Starbuck’s at Legacy Shopping Center
Highway 281@Hwy 1604
Starbucks represents something beyond a cup of coffee.

There are days when Starbuck’s can be a fashion spread covering many different looks. As I sat at a table, reading the Wall Street Journal and sipping my Skinny Caramel Macchiato, my eye began to capture all of the different styles collected in just one setting. There were the young, trendy, designer fashionables most likely 30-somethings….those who literally just walked out of the health club at the end of the parking lot, still sweaty and now very hungry….students with laptops already diving into studies though it was early morning and dressed like they went to bed in what they wore…the intellectual “we-are-to-cool-to-look-nice-because-it-is-shallow-and-elitist” couples reading in the corner….and Texas Starbuck’s would not be complete without the moms-in-capris-and-oversized-shirts!! I really wanted to shoot a couple of the trendier looks for the blog, but after I took the picture of my coffee cup, a nearby man began to watch me. I just did not want to be forced to ask anyone’s permission, so I put the cell phone down!!



I use to be the casual mom in capris and oversized shirts. Just about eight years ago, I would run errands looking my absolute worse. I wanted to be invisible. I just wanted to run my errands and be left alone. But, after my makeover, that changed. I have written before that salespeople treat me nicer now that I dress better for every day errand running. Also, I do not have to apologize when I run into people I know. It is rare to go to the grocery in my neighborhood and not see a familiar face. It actually makes me smile to think that someone might say in a conversation that I always look “put together.”

Excellent feature in The Wall Street Journal
on midi-length skirts!



On this VISIBLE MONDAY, let’s remember that you never know who is sitting at Starbuck’s watching you. It is worth the time and effort to fix up for the smallest of errands. Also, you will feel better about you!
