When I packed up my belongings and excitedly (...okay, and nervously, too) moved to Montana, I don't think I quite understood the landscape I was leaving. Growing up in one place for your entire life kind of makes you forget that the rest of the world doesn't have everything your hometown does. In my case, the thing I missed most when I left and realized that the rest of the world didn't have them was the rolling hills that Idaho has to offer. Every single time I come home, I kind of get lost in the magic of descending into my little hometown nestled between the rolling hills. Montana is beautiful and their mountains are more impressive than the ones found in my hometown in Idaho, but there's something irreplaceable about being able to drive through the back country between the hills.
I think that's part of what makes me unmotivated about taking blog pictures in Montana. I just love taking pictures in Idaho too much. It seems like they always turn out pretty. Which is largely due to those rolling hills that aren't found anywhere else. But, truly. It's hard not to be inspired living in such a place. I guess going back to Montana is going to take some extra effort!
I'm kind of obsessed with how these pictures turned out. As Niklaas was taking them, he kept saying, "Oh my gosh." Which basically translates to, "These are really amazing." The bad thing about getting such good pictures is that I can't post all of them and narrowing them down is so tough! If you all aren't sick of my red tights yet, I'm going to keep wearing them. I'm absolutely obsessed with them. Walking around downtown has definitely attracted a lot of stares (not my intention at all) and is kind of embarrassing, but I love them. This black, white, and red trend I have going might not stop. Hehehe!
Niklaas was wearing a really adorable outfit when we went out that afternoon, so of course I had to take a few pictures. I tweeted a picture from instagram and I loved your comments! I think it's been kind of awesome to see how his taste in clothing has changed, too. It's not very different, but he definitely isn't a strictly flannel boy anymore. I'll be honest, a boy in khaki skinnies, boat shoes, cardigan, and button down pretty much does it for me. In my college classes, I tend to text my best friends about well dressed cute boys in my class and secretly hope to befriend them all. I can't really imagine dating a boy unlike Niklaas in that way! *swooon*
Speaking of Montana... I go back to school in one week. I really shouldn't be complaining because my six week winter break is longer than, well... everyones. I've pretty much done nothing over break. I'm not sure how getting back into the swing of a schedule is going to go but I'm really not looking forward to nor excited for a new semester. Excited to move out of my parents house again? Yes. Excited to see my roommates? Yes. School? NO. I guess that's the difference between sophomore and freshmen year.
I got this dress last spring. As in... almost a year ago. Oops. One of my New Years resolution is to keep wearing all of my clothes. I got better at it, but there are still a lot of things that don't get worn. I tend to be a phase girl and by that I mean that when I like something, such as an outfit, I'll wear 10 variations of it for a month straight. It's true. This dress and these tights might be my January/February phase. I'm in love! I left these heels at home over the fall semester and I pulled them out of the back of my closet at home last week and have since worn them twice. T-strap heels = the best!
Anyways, I hope you guys liked these pictures as much as I love them! Sometimes, I can't believe what a lucky girl I am. Thank you, Niklaas!!! <3 You are the best-dressed-greatest-photographer-adorable-boyfriend ever.
