Before you jump to extreme fan girl conclusions, I would like to point out that I'm a classically trained vocalist with a sincere appreciation for a versatile range and impressive utilization of breath control. I'm also a firm advocate for eating disorder awareness and the importance of promoting healthy body images and lifestyle choices. With that being said, I'm ecstatic to report that I am not only going to the Demi Lovato concert in Orlando on Monday night, but I also get to meet her. Oh-my-gawdddd. I think I'll have a heart atta-a-a-aa-a-ck.
When it comes to owning a distinct style, multi-talented rocker chick, fashionista, and eating disorder over-comer Demi Lovato does it best. Ergo, The Radiant Collection, brought to you by Procter & Gamble's leading feminine protection brands Always and Tampax, has hit the road with Demi as a sponsor for her World Tour to inspire young women to have the confidence to wear what they want any time of the month.
“It took me a long time to realize that confidence comes from how I feel and not from what others think or say about me,” said Demi Lovato. As an official tour sponsor, The Radiant Collection will give young women style inspiration and fashion tips. At each concert attendees can:
- Get some serious style cred from the Radiant Demi-Inspired Closet, featuring one of Demi’s rocker-chic tour ensembles
- Showcase their stellar senses of style by snapping a pic in the selfie station
- Pose in the GIF photo booth
- Receive free Radiant product samples, coupons and information
Demi is also giving The Radiant Collection backstage access into her life on the road in online videos that can be found on the Tampax YouTube page beginning mid-September.
To give everyone the chance to join the fun on tour, and maybe even spot themselves in one of the videos, fans can enter the Be Radiant Sweepstakes from Sept. 10, through Oct. 10, 2014. The Be Radiant Sweepstakes offers fans the chance to win a VIP experience to attend Demi’s Brooklyn show in style receiving: a two-night trip to New York for one lucky winner and three friends, limo service, four front-row concert tickets, a meet-and-greet with Demi, and a year supply of Tampax Radiant and Always Radiant Infinity.

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, InStyle, Vogue and Elle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirefallfashion http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
Florida, its weather gods, and the Gregorian calendar may disagree with me, but as soon as Labor Day passes, it's officially fall. September is amazing in itself for the sole fact that all my favorite magazines release their fall fashion editions in the beginning of the month. During a routine shopping expedition at Target, I immediately grabbed Elle's and InStyle's September, ie Fall Fashion, issue, and the inspiration started flowing. I can't quite put my finger on why I adore this season's styles more than any other; it may be the plaid, the flannel, the scarves, the blazers, the boots, the tailgating ensembles.. I just love it all. From gingham to animal prints, wool to fleece material, booties to knee-high riding boots, my classically conservative style is epitomized during this beautiful season.
For my first spring OOTD of the year, I decided to spin the classic autumn elements into a more business casual feel, since I spend 80% of my life in my office these days. Don't ever let anybody tell you that flannel doesn't dress up nicely when paired with a not-so-mini J. Crew mini skirt and closed-toe patent leather heels.
When I combine the elements of classic and preppy, which in my opinion are already synonymous, Audrey Hepburn comes to mind. Ergo, I had to pair my outfit with a variation of her signature style of over-sized oval/round-framed sunglasses, as well as with an adorable neutral leopard scarf, pearl studs, and silver jewelry.

Oh, Labor Day... a national holiday dedicated to not working in honor of Americans working hard. For me in particular, it's a day essentially designer for playtime on the water, so my outfit needs to be cute, comfy, and boat appropriate. I found this pink ruffled romper from The Mint Julep and knew it was the perfect candidate for the job. I got together with the oh-so-talented Bill Ward of Lakeside Photography for this fun and fancy-free shoot, where we probably did more playing than working. Thanks, BW, for great photography and a great time!
Since Labor Day is also somewhat symbolic of the imminent end of sweet summertime, I always like to spruce up my outfits with brightly-colored accessories. I couldn't be more in love with these adorable teal Hermosa Tassel earrings from Chains by Lauren. They're the perfect homemade statement piece, giving a fun pop of gorgeous color, and they're literally light as a feather. Lauren also makes mini tassel earrings, too, in a variety of different designs, as well as other unique styles of beach jewelry and boho jewelry.
I'm equally obsessed with these adjustable Dana Beach Bangles from Chains by Lauren, and I'll be honest-- I haven't taken them off in over two weeks. The mix of these three colorful bracelets with their gorgeous rose gold hardware pair perfectly with any colorful outfit, especially this pink romper.
My fabulous bonded "Love" ring by ODEHYA complimented the bracelets well and also added a fun and unique pop of expression to my outfit. Since multiple adventures in pageantry this summer have left my hair and nails damaged and in need of a detox, I've been opting for nude nails as of lately, so added accessories are mandatory for dressing up my boring hands.
