Sneaks in Pink

I love my hot pink sneakers because they make any outfit feel cool and edgy. Do you have a pair of sneakers that you love? These are a few of my favorites that I have my eye on… here, here, and here. Along with the cool sneakers and jewelry to match, sometimes a messy ponytail adds the perfect touch of carefree fun to an outfit. Tamara, hairstylist at DèStefino Southside Salon, mastered this hairstyle for me, and taught me some tricks on how to do it myself. Go see her to learn {you will love her}!
