Woman Crush Wednesday- Blake Lively!

Blake Lively is one successful girl. And one of my favorite things about her is that a lot of her success has stemmed from some of my other favorite things- books. Her TV show Gossip Girl, in which she plays the lovely Serena van der Woodsen, was adapted from a series written by Cecily von Ziegesar, and she also played Bridget Vreeland in both the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and its sequel, which were adapted from books written by Ann Brashares. Another success in her life? She snagged Ryan Reynolds!!

The show Gossip Girl is known for its amazing NYC style and some of that must have rubbed off onto our crush this week because we are LOVING what she is wearing. Here are some shots of Blake in our favorite outfits and ways that you can get her style here in Granger, IN from Flourish!

 This first one is of Blake is from a recent trip she took to Paris- shooting GG and catching Fashion Week- and it's Chanel. What I like about it so much is the asymmetrical hem. Here are some of our dresses that have the same shape.

 Here Blake is out and about in a black and white striped sweater. And as any Flourish follower knows- we LOVE black and white and we LOVE stripes! Here are some ways we have this in the store now.

Another one of our favorite trends is patterned or chevron maxi dresses, and our crush wore this black and gray one out and about in the city! Here are some ways you can rock this Flourish Style.
