This time of year, everyone is in preparation for holiday traditions. Typically, this foreshadows a lot of stress, anxiety, rush and hustle. Perhaps the most overlooked fact about this part of the year is that the fall and winter atmosphere calls for relaxation and renewal. The weather demands that we take it easy and pay closer attention and care to ourselves. We know that fashion and style doesn't take a break for "relaxation and renewal", but one could argue that fact as new trends emerge. Take for example the fashion industry's recent embracing of casual wear. The emerging "Athletic Leisure" trend will be in full effect by the time Spring and Summer blooms, and of course, here is my early dance with the comfy convenience of casual wear and trendy "athletic leisure" looks as I explore the beautiful scenery of Downtown Fort Worth.
