Style icon, casual-chic extraordinaire, and blonde bombshell that just won’t quit Blake Lively has recently returned to the spotlight after having baby James, so we’re celebrating her glorious comeback as quite possibly the hottest mom ever.
First question: How does she do it? Answer: Completely on her own. Yes, seriously. No, we’re not kidding. Ms. Lively (Mrs. Reynolds?) doesn’t have a stylist. She really is just that effortlessly stylish… AND she gets to go to bed with this washboard every night. The level of #goals is real, ladies.
Because Mother’s Day is less than a week away (eeek!) we’re rounding up four of Blake’s best casual-chic looks and sharing some of her secrets for perfect street/airport/night-out style. We suggest taking notes, because the mom in your life needs to know where to spend her Mother’s Day gift cards so that she can steal her style and finally get on Lively’s level.
It’s official, overalls are back, and they’re making mommy style super easy and insanely covetable. Moms won’t even have to worry about concocting an outfit, because these dungarees do it for them. And when combined with a soft tee, hands-free crossbody bag, comfy flats, and giant sunnies to hide her lack of sleep like Blake, she’ll feel like she’s still in her PJ’s but look like an insanely hot mama. So send her a clothing gift card to MVM Miami where she can snag these white overalls—a springtime update to Ms. Lively’s ensemble.
All in the details
Blake always manages to look equal parts casual and chic, and it’s not hard to see why—she knows that the secret to style is all in the details. Swapping her normal denim for pants adorned with one-of-a-kind details is a super easy way to elevate her everyday jeans and tee. We love these Tibi seersucker pants because they’re just as stylish as they are comfortable—read: a mom-on-the-go’s dream come true.
Because the style icon believes in the power of a simple tee, she knows accessories are the key to covetable mommy style. We’re still not sure how she managed to look so good at the airport, but we’re guessing her felt topper and tasseled brogues have something to do with it. With a Mother’s Day gift card to Lori’s Shoes, your hot mama can replicate Ms. Lively’s look in a pinch. The Jeffrey Campbell New-Laws and Armitage Avenue fedora will help her achieve the look for just a fraction of the price… We can’t all be A-list stars (but we sure can look like ’em).
We already gave it away… but the secret to Blake’s impeccable style is the perfect tee. Whether peeking out from under overalls, brought to life with accessories, or majorly glammed up with an embellished pencil skirt, the ex-gossip girl’s T-shirt collection is one to admire. Luckily, Jill Roberts boutique in Los Angeles knows the recipe for the perfect tee. From tanks, to crewnecks, to the perfect little black tee, quality and simplicity are key—as is a stylish gift card this Mother’s Day.
