You’ve seen the signs when visiting a picturesque resort town…. “Live like a Local!”  But did you ever think you would be longing to experience that in your own home town?  For me…that’s Fort Worth, Texas.

Famous on the Northside is Joe T. Garcia’s Mexican restaurant.  Three things you need to know…they only take cash, people go there for the margaritas, and their beautiful patio is where the action is!  Ft. Worth designer, Sheridan French, is the queen of colorful and spirited prints.  Her stunning dresses, skirts, and tunics are perfect for this famous hometown patio….keeping it local y’all!     

The Kimbell, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, and  The Modern Museum of Art are world-class art museums…an incredible gift to our community.  From the classics to contemporary, Fort Worth offers art that speaks to everyone.   So what would Holley suggest you wear to a world-class art museum?  She’s loving a voluminous Mara Hoffman dress paired with plenty of personality.  Also ideal for museum browsing is an Anthropologie abstract tunic….and Picasso approved!  


If you’re looking to spot local celebs.…the Kimbell Café is the place to be.  Dramatic pants are ideal for this ultra-chic café environment.  For a luxe look, Etro’s mix-print trousers complemented with Cult Gaia clear slip-ons will definitely elevate your café style.  Also think about treating yourself to artesian-made jewelry from the museum’s gift shop!


From Bass Performance Hall and the Fort Worth Symphony to Cliburn Concerts….Fort Worth’s performing arts rival any big city’s.  To give your concert style a virtuoso vibe…a black and white ensemble is the way to go!  If you’re looking for a little “treble”….Chico’s black and white geometric striped pants are ideal for a symphony matinee.  For an evening Cliburn concert at the Renzo Piano Pavilion…a polka-dot bubble skirt will definitely put your style center stage!

Did you ever think you could find so much joy rediscovering your hometown?  And don’t you just love “living like a local”.….with style, of course?
