The Today Show has been a part of my daily life ever since I can remember.
All through middle school and high school, I can remember walking into the kitchen where my mom would be sitting, reading the newspaper, drinking her hot tea while watching/listening to the Today Show.
While in college, I rarely watched it because I was either never up that early or if I was, I was rushing to class. But now that I have a full-time corporate job, The Today Show has become a part of my own daily routine.
As much as I loved Meredith Vieira, I was so pleased to finally hear that Ann Curry was going to fill her hosting position once she left the show. Even before her promotion, I'd always found myself admiring Ann's sense of style and would tune in just to see what she had on. In fact, on most days - she helps me pick out my own outfits.
"Oh, Ann's wearing a black turtleneck..It is pretty cold outside..I think I'll wear mine"
"Oh my gosh, I just love the stripes and bright sweater she's wearing...I think I can pull that look off"
"Orange and Teal!!..I'm totally wearing my blue cardigan"
Yesterday, I was loving Ann's black and white ensemble so much that it inspired me to put on a black and white dress that I've had in the closet for years. I wound up receiving numerous compliments at work (and even a few while in the grocery store).
Suffice to say, Ann Curry - You're MY style Icon.
It might be strange that I find myself taking daily style cues from a woman in her 50's, but shes just so cute! Who wouldn't want to look/dress like her?
