The War on Drugs: This Indie Rock band from Philadelphia has been making it’s name in the music industry since 2005. We love them so much, we’ve actually used their songs in our previous marketing campaigns and in store playlists! Check out “Red Eyes” and “An Ocean In Between The Waves” for music you’ll want to put on repeat all day long.

First Aid Kits: Another sibling duo we’ve fallen in love with are Klara and Johanna Söderberg from Sweden. Their Indie Folk sound is not only powerful, it’s endearingly catchy and sweet.  We love “Stay Gold” and “My Silver Lining.”

How to Wear the Denim X Boho Artist Flare with Frank Vinyl

The new Denim X Boho Artist Flare combines our revolutionary high performance stretch denim with light destroyed details and an edgy released hem for a perfect harmony of style and comfort.

Francesca from Frank Vinyl pairs her flares with a flowy, boho top and platform wedges for a easy summer time look.

Meet Francesca:
Francesca Felix is a fashion blogger, stylist and photographer from San Diego, California. She loves to share her outfits with her followers and show inspiration on how to combine different outfits and pieces.

How to Wear the Denim X Boho Artist Flare with Frank Vinyl

What Inspired Francesca’s Look:
“My favorite is anything that is California Boho but I love to mix and match styles. I styled my AEO jeans with some platforms, fringe bag and off the shoulder boho top for a easy summer time look. I love anything that is flirty, feminine and a slight casual feel. The 70’s look is very “in” right now but I have also always been a long time fan of anything  vintage and slightly nostalgic. I added fringe and platforms with big round sunnies to reference the 70’s vibes.”How to Wear the Denim X Boho Artist Flare with Frank Vinyl

10 Ideas For A Daycation

Tired of the same old routine? Switch it up with these 10 ideas from CHAARG (Changing Health, Attitudes & Actions to Recreate Girls) to do on a free weekend day or in those few hours after your 9-5 and get addicted to these routine refreshers!

1] BE A TOURIST IN YOUR OWN CITY

Fall in love your city all over again and discover some new favorites! Head into the heart of your city, walk the side streets, check out the shops you’ve never been in before and don’t be afraid to get a little lost. Exploring your own city on foot will force you to look at things in a new light.

2] SAY NO TO NETFLIX

Instead of diving onto the couch immediately after walking in the door, try something different. Take an art class, volunteer in your community or try a new workout class you’ve never done before. The fewer hours you spend in front of the TV, the greater your mental and physical health.

3] REFRESH YOUR HAPPY HOUR

Instead of your go-to place, give your happy hour a different meaning. Pack an easy, travel-friendly picnic dinner, head to a local park and share a meal with friends. Not only will the new scenery be a refreshing change, but you’ll likely save a few dollars. Spending time outdoors can be a serious happiness booster, too!

4] SWITCH UP YOUR COMMUTE

Do you take the same route to work every morning? It’s pretty easy to switch it up. If you walk to work, try taking a new path, even if it’s a few blocks out of the way. Drive or ride your bike? For a more health-conscious option, try running or cycling home from the office. You’ll see things from a new perspective and that unavoidable commute will feel exciting again.

5] BUSY ALL DAY?

Even if your daily responsibilities run long past 5 pm, you’ve still got time to squeeze in a mini-adventure. Summer skies are usually cloud free, so head out for a nighttime walk the next time there’s a full moon. This new, fresh perspective can be great for sparking creativity or getting a quick mental refresh.

6] CAMP OUT (OR PRETEND TO)

If you or a friend has a truck, pack it up with some snacks, sleeping bags and a couple flashlights. Drive out to a nearby campground and set up camp in the truck bed. You’ll get the feel of camping with no equipment or major planning needed. No truck? Bring the same supplies, build a fire and roast marshmallows, then pack it all up and drive home at the end of the night. You’ll get the camping feel even if you don’t make it an overnight!

7] SIGN UP FOR A RACE IN A NEARBY CITY

Grab some friends and sign up for a race in a different city. You’ll get the chance to explore a new city in a unique way, and race weekends often have great deals on food, hotels and more!

8] CHASE THE SUNSET

Unless you’re a West Coast local, the sunset can be a bit elusive. Just as the evening light begins to fade, hop in your car and start driving toward the sunset. Be sure to bring your GPS so you can find your way back! Find a nice place to stop along the way and watch the last rays of light fade. The excitement of not knowing where you’re going and spending a few hours cruising to your favorite summer songs make this mini-roadtrip feel like a great adventure.

9] JOIN THE DAWN PATROL

If mornings are more your style, try squeezing in a sunrise activity before heading off to work or class. Outdoor workouts like yoga, paddling or hiking give you the added benefits of sunrise views. If it takes you awhile to wake up enough to work out, try grabbing an early morning breakfast with a friend—most cities have cafes that open at 6 for just that.

10 Ideas For A Daycation with Aerie and CHAARG

10] CONTROL YOUR TIME

Are you always wishing you had more time? Turns out you do, but you just haven’t taken advantage of it yet! Did you know that waking up 20 minutes earlier or staying up 20 minutes later each day will earn you 5 more days each year? It’s true! Take 20 to sip your morning coffee and enjoy those few minutes before the world starts buzzing awake, hit the streets for a few quick miles or use that time to try out that hobby you didn’t have time for before.

If these options still seem too challenging to fit into your schedule, remember that simply leaving your phone at home and going for a walk can be enough of a break from the constant buzz, and may be just what you need. Tiny changes can help make big improvements in your daily life!
