Pineapple Print Maxi






Dress, Handbag, and Bracelets – 12East / Shoes: MadAboutHeels (Charlotte Russe has them  for BOGO $10!)

How fun is this dress? When my sweet friend sent me a snap of it, I couldn’t resist ordering it for 12East. And then, I couldn’t resist grabbing one for myself! haha, do you blame me? It’s seriously comfortable. I didn’t think I’d be so into the pineapple and palm leaf/ banana leaf trend but I am LOVING it. I’m considering buying these shorts and this adorable romper. I also love this adorable little cosmetic case that’s under $6 from Forever 21. But really, do I need another cosmetic case? Who am I kidding – of course I don’t! Stay tuned to Instagram (@SecretiveStyle) for a fun giveaway today!

What do you think of all the pineapple print you’re seeing in stores? Do you love it or hate it?

Dress, Jewelry, & Hat are all / Shoes: Mad About Heels

It’s funny how the day that spring started, the flowers immediately bloomed and the weather became so intensely gorgeous. I’ve been making a point of spending Monday-Friday trying to get everything done before the evening so I can spend a good bit of time outside with my John, Grayson, and our Golden Retriever. I am just counting down the days until the pool is warm enough to get Grayson out there, hopefully not too much longer!

Anyways, since I’ve had Grayson I find myself trying to put myself together daily even if that just means putting make up on and fixing my hair. On the days where I can actually put something nice on and get away from the computer, I absolutely love a good dress! With the temperates constantly changing here in Louisiana, I find dresses to be a much better choice when the temperates start soaring. This pink dress is absolutely incredible – I love, love the colors and the fit and I can’t wait to wear it on a fun vacation this summer. We’re thinking about somewhere in southern California so if anyone has been there and has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

PS: Get 10% off my dress until 5PM CST today only with code CALLIE!

TUTORIAL: Effortless Beachy Waves




So, after receiving so many emails and comments asking how I achieve and maintain my curls, I decided to make a new tutorial to show you how I do it! In the video, I’ll explain the products I use and how I achieve my look (as well as a few goofy faces!) For quick product reference, I use Tresemme #1 Mousse in #4 hold (I use a generous amount when my hair is wet!), Tresemme Smooth & Silky Shine Spray (on wet hair!), and Dove Dry Shampoo! I absolutely do not use hair spray! My hair is already so heavy and so flat and straight that hair spray at any hold will weigh it down.

I’m looking forward to making so many more tutorials including one for how I do my own brows at home and a few more hairstyle tutorials! If there are any particular ones you liked, feel free to leave me a comment and let me know! Also, if you have any questions, feel free to email me at or comment below the video on youtube.
