All the pretty ladies!
Outfits were super cute, photos not so much. But hey, we are cute and silly! Sorry for the lack of post, I will be back! Not too worry!

It has been awhile since posting… things are ahumming at school, final applications are in and ready to go. Lately I haven’t found a lot of inspiration through clothes and fashion but I stumbled across these beauties and it sparked my interest. Robert Doisneau was a French photographer during the early-mid nineteenth century. His most famous piece was the picture named Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville (last one pictured). This picture encapsulated the essence of young love in the city of Paris.
Okay enough of a history lesson… and enough of me talking about France and Paris. I just love the simplicity and elegancy of the work. Amazing how these, not clothes have led me to find more inspiration.
Inspiration at its finest.
I blog about everything. What’s on my mind, what I think is cool, what I need to vent about and the clothes I love to wear! Over the years this has evolved into a different thing each time I needed it to be. Dare to dream was something that was close to me when I was in Grade 9. It was a term I couldn’t get out of my mind, keeping my dreams alive and well. While obviously I will never stop being daring and never stop dreaming, it was time for a change. The URL will remain the same for now but I will hopefully have a switch over in the next few months.
There’s is a long story attached to the chosen name. But the short of it all is a cute little story attached to my given name, Montana. Treasure State is the state of Montana’s nickname that appears on the license plate. Something clicked for me, it had to be it. My clothes, my quotes and my photos are all little treasures that I want to share with other people.
A lifestyle shock and love. Paris was a whirlwind vacation of biking, baguettes and boots. I have fallen in love with the city over and over again. The women are effortlessly stylish and beautiful. The butter makes my knees weak and the coffee kept me going all day. I dream of living there – just that pesky French getting in my way.
Je t’aime Paris!
So from one to the other we made it to dinner. Full red lips and a red bag make everything look chic.
Pictures to come from my trip this weekend. Jet lagged as can be… reasoning from my extremely early posting.
Me: polka-dot blouse, Zara ; camel pants, Mendocino ; fur vest, Le Chateau ; headband, Aldo ; booties, borrowed
Harry: blouse & blazer, Zara ; jeans, Nudie Jeans;
I don’t actually have an office job where this type of outfit transition is fully necessary but it worked out well for a quick switch. My new camel riding pants are super comfy and actually flattering. The blouse is also super cute and it seems like they were a match made it heaven! The vest is one from a costume so the fur isn’t that cozy but it pulls the whole thing together. Basically, this is my casual classy look ready for action.
Harry’s outfit isn’t done justice in these photos. The colour of the deep blue against his khaki blazer was awesome. He is looking extremely dapper on this nice fall morning. We both needed to “dress up” for school. Heheh we like to pretend we are alll grown up!
Stay tuned for the follow-up post!
