FESTIVAL STYLE TAKE 3

With Osheaga quickly approaching (hello, it starts tomorrow!) we can literally no longer contain our excitement! A weekend spent at Parc Jean Drapeau with the beautiful Montreal skyline resting peacefully in the background of the 2 main stages, an incredible lineup and the trendiest folks, really, how could we not be excited?  While last year was a total blast which included rocking out to Mumford and Sons backstage (yepp, that happened!), eating way too much food at the various glorious food trucks and sipping on sweet lemonade, well, all weekend... we're still positive this year is going to be next level.

Also next level, this outfit though. Whether or not you're a Rolling Stones groupie, anyone can rock this tee. It's a total classic and looks amazing paired with our printed skirt, combat boots and floppy hat, dontcha think? 







So, if you're heading out to Osheaga this weekend, keep your eyes peeled for the Ardene team! We'll be the girls snapping style pics with one hand and eating delicious treats in the other!

Be sure to share your Ardene festival looks using #ARDENEROCKS!

MUSIC MONDAY

There are so many reasons why we absolutely love Haim. 
Firstly, we love these sisters for their incredible folk-rock sound. Secondly, for what they represent: Strong, confident, talented girls.
They remind us that you should never give up and never look back.
#totesagree


We can't wait to hear them live at Osheaga, but for now, we'll just keep playin' this on repeat.

FESTIVAL STYLE: TAKE 2

We promised more festival-inspired looks, and we're keeping our word with this city girl meets country casual look.   How perfect for a festival though, seriously? These boots are made for walking to and from the various stages, and they could take a crowd beating without you having to yell "watch out for my toes!") Not to mention, you can sit, dance, skip (if you wanted to) in total comfort in our overalls. Perfect festival look? We think so!
