Pregnant & Glowing! Blake Lively Shows Off Growing Baby Bump

Pregnancy clearly suits Blake Lively! The actress looked glowing as she showed off her baby bump as she left the “Made In America” summit at Martha Stewart’s office in Chelsea, New York on Saturday.
Blake — who is expecting her first child with Ryan Reynolds — confidently strode away from the summit wearing a grey sweater with a monochrome wrap.
The 27-year-old — who is launched her own lifestyle blog Preserve — seemed to get the seal of approval from the icon after the two women met at the summit.
Stewart originally had reservations when she heard of Lively’s intentions — but she was more encouraging during a panel discussion at the summit introducing the actress as her ‘friend and neighbor’.
The Gossip Girl star has revealed that as well as having her baby she wants to pursue more acting and establishing Preserve also. Blake also has stated that neither she or Reynolds want to know the sex of their baby before the birth. See more of Blake’s amazing style HERE.

Celebrity Style By Metaphor

I was so excited to be asked by Sears to team up and check out their new line called metaphor! If there’s one thing I am always on the hunt for, it  is comfy clothes that look on trend and chic. I was so impressed with this line,  from the amazing variety,  gorgeous fabrics,  cozy sweaters and….incredible price. I chose this black and white v neck sweater that has just the right amount to sparkle for the holiday season.

I love the oversize fit and the super soft feel of the knit. I also adore the chiffon peeking out underneath which gives it the on trend layered look. I paired the sweater with my now favorite ‘Missy’ leggings. They are quilted which give them a fun texture and also allows them to go seamlessly from day to night. Clothes that do double duty are always a win in my book.

They also offer super cute boots and handbags that are simply stunning! I adore my Givenchy Antigonia bag but for those of you that are looking for a high-quality, look for less, metaphor’s Grove Street satchel does the trick!
One thing is for sure if you’re looking to have a super stylish holiday season without breaking the bank the Sears metaphor line is for you!

Tis The Season To Travel…In Style

Without a doubt, the airport is one of the best places to spot authentic star style. Celebrities bring new meaning to the phrase “traveling in style.” I know firsthand how difficult a comfortable, yet stylish travel look can be. When time is a factor, it’s common to jump from the tarmac to a meeting with little or no time in between. In such cases, I rely on several go-to pieces to get me through. My go to travel outfit relies on a mostly black ensemble, a chic and forgiving color. Skinny jeans and stylish booties provide sharp lines, while a stunning leather jacket or chic handbag keeps the look from being plain Jane. A few well-chosen accessories can add color and trend.

Here are more mile high style tips from Fashionista Lauren Conrad:

  1. Keep your look simple. I like to wear mostly black when I travel. Sometimes I throw in one complimentary color, such as burgundy or beige.
  2. Wear socks! Is there anything worse than forgetting to pack socks and then having to tiptoe through the security line with bare feet? I think not…
  3. Forget anything strappy or full of buckles. Like I said before, simplicity is key. By avoiding anything superfluous like strappy sandals and triple-buckle boots, you can cut down on the time you spend preparing for security and up your in-flight comfort factor too!
  4. Minimize your jewelry. Instead of piling your wrists with watches and bracelets, keep your accessories to a minimum. Nine times out of ten you will be asked to remove everything before going through airport security.
  5. Layer up. Wear your most comfortable pair of jeans or leggings—preferably in a dark color. Top off your look with a simple tee and a cozy sweater or relaxed blazer. Finally, twist on a scarf (or pack one in your carry-on). We all know that planes get chilly! I usually like to keep my jacket and scarf packed in my carry-on to cut down on the time I spend getting ready to go through security. If I already have these layers off, then I don’t need to worry about taking them on and off during the security screening. Once I’m through security, I usually pile these items on to prepare for the artic temps to come on the plane…
