In the casual interior of downtown’s Café Keough, you find traditional café chairs and a bountiful supply of Lorina French lemonade. And, in this case, it would be rather hard to exclude the uniform-free barista Chalsie Petteway among the restaurant's charming details. Laden with layers of beads, large dangling earrings, and a flowing floral top, Chalsie brings both style and comfort together in an authentic way that matches Cafe Keough's ambience.
Chalsie’s typical look is “a combo of the '70s and '90s, and running late!”
“I am always rushing, so I grab the first thing that I see, even if it doesn't match, and if patterns clash, so what?” she says. A believer of style as self-expression, Chalsie even prioritizes comfort as the aesthetic. “Wear what makes YOU comfortable and it will look 10 times better.”
