Hey guys, my name's Danielle and I sing for a band called Oh Honey. We just joined the Honda Civic Tour three nights ago with our friends in American Authors and The Mowglis, and we couldn't be more excited. Lisa has been kind enough to let me use her blog for the next few weeks so I can share my favorite outfits from the shows and some hair & beauty tips that keep me going on the road. Hope you enjoy!
Something you should know: I am completely obsessed with dresses and own way too many. Seriously. I have a problem.
The tour kicked off at The Moon in Tallahassee. Florida is still hot this time of year, so I went for something lighter & feminine that made me feel confident in spite of those first-show-of-tour nerves.
From that show we drove through the night to Orlando and went straight to the tv studio (on no sleep!) to film some interviews and performances for two different morning shows. I got the opportunity to rock something I love but can't wear onstage because it would fall off: a head chain. This is one of my favorites:
The second show was in Orlando, which has always been one of our favorite cities to play. I decided to channel my idol Stevie Nicks so I wore my flowiest, witchiest dress (something else you should know: I have an unhealthy obsession with Free People). I paired it with my usual thigh highs and pointy black booties. The "dress" itself is technically a tunic, so I threw on a black skater skirt underneath, so as not to flash the crowd.
Hair/beauty on the go: if you're like me and are constantly applying heat to your hair (and yes, blow drying counts), it's crucial to use heat protectant spray! My pick: Tresemme Heat Tamer Leave-In Spray. It sprays on easily and doesn't weigh my hair down or leave a weird sticky residue. I'm also a big fan of Tresemme because they don't test their products on animals! I spray it all over my hair & comb through before I blow dry, and on individual sections before I curl it for the shows.
