Squamish Valley Music Festival 2014

I felt like a true globetrotter last week because I spent Sunday in Manchester, Monday to Thursday in London, Friday in Vancouver, and then the weekend in Squamish for the Squamish Valley Music Festival. The SVMF was a particular highlight for me because it was my first ever music festival and I had an indescribable amount of fun! What made things even better was that I had the honour of attending this event as a brand ambassador for Denim & Supply for Ralph Lauren, one of my favourite brands for casual clothing. For this weekend event I wore two full looks from Denim & Supply that stylishly put me into the festival spirit.

On Saturday I chose to wear a madras sport shirt tucked into cutoff jean shorts. My favourite part of this look is the American flag detailing on the shorts’ pockets – such a creative detail!

I was introduced to the Scottish band Chvrches by my friend Amanda at this festival and I was thoroughly impressed by their performance. Their lead singer Lauren Mayberry has the most angelic voice and lovely personality.

Saturday was ended off with an explosive performance by Arcade Fire. They were spectacular live performers that captivated everyone in the crowd!

On Sunday I sported a more comfortable military-inspired outfit with a camouflage tee and cargo shorts. Squamish actually gets quite chilly after sunset, so I kept a denim jacket around my waist for stylish practicality.

Really love the camouflage detailing on the cuff of these cargo shorts!

Arctic Monkeys’ performance on Sunday night blew me away. I was never too familiar with the band but now I’m inclined to listen to more of their music!

SVMF ended off with an epic performance by the Real Slim Shady. Being a millennial child I grew up listening to Eminem’s music and so I was super stoked to see him live. Eminem certainly lived up to everyone’s performance with his flawless performance that included both his newest and oldest tracks. I can’t imagine a better way to close off this awesome weekend!

A big thank you to Denim & Supply and The Hudson’s Bay Company for sending me to this event. I had such a fun and unforgettable time!
