Spotted: Every “cool” person in Austin looking not so cool in their sweatpants and sweatshirts. The only trend that was happening for the first half of the day was the not so sexy just rolled out of bed look. I had to get a cappuccino to wake myself up after seeing so many sleepy people. However, after I finished waking myself back up it seemed that the rest of Austin was waking up too and heading south, down Congress Street. The senses are almost overwhelmed with the smells of food, the sounds of musicians and the sight of finally seeing all the cool people. I thought that Austin would just be filled with hipsters like I’m used to seeing at our local coffee shop every day, but I was really wrong. There are so many people in Austin that truly have an individual style. They aren’t trying to copy anyone or anything they have seen in a magazine, they are just doing their own thing. They often times don’t even realize that they look cool. The three girls who are rocking the knee high socks trend that I spotted didn’t even realize that they were cool, but they totally are. Who knew school girl high socks were the new thing? You can wear them all different ways, you can make them look sweet and preppy, total rocker chick, or casual and relaxed. After seeing them I might have to pull out my socks from my school uniform and try it too.
