|Noelle, Rachel, and Me|
Last weekend, I had the honor of joining Garage, a Canadian based clothing company, at the Osheaga Music & Arts Festival in Montréal, Canada. Besides the awesome music, three things made this trip magical: I had never been to Canada before but always wanted to visit, Garage is one of my favorite clothing brands, and two of my favorite bloggers Rachel of Jag Lever and Noelle of Noelle's Favorite Things were coming as well. So when I won the Garage Festival contest, I was over the moon! The contest prizes allowed for me to bring one person along with me, hotel paid for, a food budget, an Instax camera, and a shopping spree. My older brother, Billy, (who is a professional photographer) accompanied me.
The Garage crew was very welcoming and fun to be around. It was amazing to get a behind the scenes look in the Garage headquarters and meet all the wonderful people. It's truly incredible how much goes into a fashion company. After the company tour and shopping spree (so we were all decked out in Garage clothing all weekend), it was off to the music festival. Osheaga was insane! Everywhere I turned I saw large crowds of teens and young twenty somethings dressed in their best festival looks, eating the most delicious junk/carnival food, and jamming to their favorite bands. The energy and movement of it all was so intoxicating and like nothing I'd experienced before. My favorite performances included Chromeo, Haim, Jack White, Kate Nash, Cherub, and Lorde.
On top of the music being phenomenal and the fashion being fabulous, I will never forget the friendships created. Rachel and Noelle were even cooler than I imagined and the Garage group was a blast! I definitely had an unforgettable trip and I hope the photos below help share my journey.
❤ Thank you Garage for everything! ❤
