LA-based indie pop act Youngblood Hawke has been trending with its catchy, carefree single, “We Come Running.” This song is currently on repeat for me at the moment, and it’s getting me super pumped to see the band live at Firefly Festival this weekend.

Tough leather + whimsical print + slick men’s loafers make a formula for a fresh take on an otherwise commercial resort concept. I love the element of surprise with each added detail, lending subtle femininity coupled with chic modernity.

Funky 80′s tomboy meets downtown cool in Jen Kao’s Resort ’14 collection. I’m loving this look that combines casual denim with unexpected green, crisp white, and sporty flatforms.
