The Cameron

Source
We couldn't be more excited about the release of the modern times Annie hitting theaters this Friday!  We grew up adoring & watching/re-watching the Annie movie featuring Carol Burnett, & even though our kids all enjoy that version too, we are all just as eager to see the modern take of the classic story & musical numbers.

As we count down toward it's release we thought we would focus on one of the fashion icon actresses in this film - Cameron Diaz, who plays the role of the snarky & angry Ms. Hannigan.  Cameron describes herself as a shoe lover & denim obsessed.  From our point of view Cameron's style is the epitome of casual chic on the street & modern elegant on the red carpet.

We each challenged ourselves this week to use Cameron's style to inspire us & we thought we'd share the results with you.

The look I chose to imitate involves some of my favorite wardrobe pieces...stripes, denim, a scarf, & a blazer...a classic combination!

Although these individual pieces make a classic combination, it is a combination I've not put together before. This scarf is one I haven't pulled out in a while & I don't find myself wearing a blazer casually often enough (I generally sport them for the office).  

While I love the pop of yellow in the shoes, these particular shoes aren't very conducive to this time of year in Colorado, so I slightly modified this outfit as a second option with a boyfriend cardigan & ankle boots.

Yet again, another outfit that works well for my style & personality & the current season.  So, thanks to Cameron for being such a style icon!  It was a fun challenge for me to think through my existing pieces to replicate a look of hers & mix pieces in a new way for myself- I should do this more often!  Are you up for the challenge?

Be sure to come back on Wednesday to see how Stacie duplicates Cameron's looks - spoiler alert - her dupes are pretty great! You won't want to miss it!
