I had the pleasure to collab with Black Coffee Style, which is run by a great friend of mine, Kyla Grace Reed. We settled for all black and white looks. Both of which wound up going so well together, even though we didn't give each other any details as to exactly what we were wearing.
I chose to try something a little different than my usual silhouette, which always includes boots. I've been getting a bit of spring fever lately, so I opted for a black and white checked shirt that felt summery to me. I brought out my old Chuck Taylors from High school, which still have half of my graduating class's signature on them. I thought they just screamed summer! The thing I love most about them is that no matter how dirty or old they get, they still add a classic, care-free vibe to any look. Hey, the dirt just adds a little charm to them.
How cool is Kayla's tattoo?! It says "Anchor to my soul". She shared that it was a reminder to keep her grounded in her faith. I absolutely love it!
Casually pretending we're crossing the streets at London Fashion Week. *sighs* Someday.

Hope you find our outfits "Neato"! ;) I had so much fun with Kyla and Tim shooting this collab. After, me and Kyla enjoyed some really great coffee and even better conversation.
