#MinimalistMondays is truly my every day style! I love a great t-shirt and pair of denim. It’s an easy style and ideal to dress up or down. Throwing on a pair of the Sixty Seven Indigo Sandals with this outfit was a no-brainer. I love the platform on these sandals. It gives a great twist to the Birkenstock look, and most importantly, I think it updates the trend tremendously. Everything, about my look today is easy and effortless, even the bun! Sometimes, we all need a look that can never let us down and for me, this is it! Have a great Monday guys!

Having and especially maintaining my own blog has been quite an accomplishment for myself. For almost two years, I’d thought about starting a blog but never knew exactly what I wanted to talk about. As I have been developing Four One OH!, I have set important goals for my blog as well as the idea of being more comfortable in my own skin. I have never been the type of person who loved having their picture taken, but this blog has definitely helped me loosen up a bit. I’m trying to take a cue from Tyra and practice as much as possible. (In fact, I’m smizing at this very moment!)
After, a blog meeting the other day at The Bun Shop with my Art Director Glenford Nunez, he gave me the best advice… “You think too hard, just loosen up.” While this is of course easier said then done, I agree completely. The best pictures I take are when I’m not thinking about it and just being myself. We all know that blogging is all about consistency and finding your voice. I’m hoping by the end of the summer, one goal I can cross off my list, is that I can master the art of taking a picture! Until next time…

Blogging 101: Practice Makes Perfect
I am addicted to the Zara suit! This week, I know Zara launched one of their rare sales, but unfortunately I have not had time to check it out. I have committed my Friday afternoon to seeing what they have on sale. This red suit from Zara, is one of my favorite suits! I love the fit and the versatility of the suit. I can dress it down, as you see here, by throwing on a pair of converse or dress it up with a nude or black heel!
The weather is still a bit cool in Baltimore, so I thought it would be a great time to wear my suit one last time before it gets too hot. I think I have a little addiction to suits anyway, so I am going to try and find some short suits to rock this summer! Until next time folks…
