My DVR has been exhausted for several months now with all the summer programming. Or lack thereof. So the fact that season premieres are kicking off is exhilarating.
But not for the reasons you might think.
Yes, I will now have hours and hours of TV shows to start watching that I’ll never be able to keep up with, but what I’m even more excited about is that my style icon is back.
Yes, Ellen’s tenth season has officially kicked off.
My sister was the first to notice that Ellen and I dressed very similarly—or at least was the first person to bring it to my attention when she told me “nice Ellen shoes.”
Once I got to paying attention myself, I realized my sister was completely wrong. I don’t dress like Ellen. Ellen dresses like me.
And I love it.
Though I would be lying if I said that one of her outfits didn’t sneak into the inspiration to what I wore the next day. On several occasions.
But really, I’m not even kind of upset about it. Ellen is an awesome role model, has impeccable style, and from what I can tell from just watching her, and overly kind heart. And since she puts a smile on my face whenever I watch, if she decides to borrow from my lookbook from time to time, I’ll just let that be my return gift to her.
