#OOTD: The Tattoo Tank All Dressed Up

Today's outfit of the day is brought to you by the letter "M" for mom, makeup and moxie.

Tattoo Tank: Yes, it's a tank top, but that doesn't mean it can only be worn casually. You can dress up just about any article of clothing with a nice pair of pants (as seen here), a nice skirt (maxi, midi or mini) and heels. To shop this shirt, click here.

Let's just say you have a loose-fitting top or dress that you want to wear but you also want it to be a little bit more form-fitting. That's the style conundrum I came across one recent morning. As you can see in the photo above, this Swing Dress has an A-line silhouette and so, by design, it has a very flowy fit. It's comfortable and cute, but I wanted to bring it in in the waist.

Top 5 Reasons to Wear Black and White

1.  The color combo is timeless. Need proof? These images of Dorothy Dandridge from the 1950s, Julia Roberts in 2001, and Reese Witherspoon this year don't lie.      2. Chic, funky, classic, no matter your style, you can pull it off. 3. Black and white is one of the biggest fashion trends this spring and summer. Need style tips? Try very graphic pieces to emphasize the stark contrast between ebony and ivory. Another style tip: Accent the black and white with bold colors. 4. Sporty minimalism is also, ahem, on track to be a style, ahem, winner this year and black and white in a track pant is a perfect pairing. 5. Black and white = flawless, every time.

Q&A: Caleb Brown

  From painting, to teaching himself web development to baking, Caleb Brown is a man very passionate about his various creative endeavors. And as someone who recently tasted his lemon pistachio cardamom cupcakes, I know from personal experience that he's really good at whatever he does. Check out the Q&A below about inspiration and process from this Brooklyn-based freelance web developer and passionate baker.
