Guest Post II How To: Blake Lively Street Style

Hey there lovelies,

I hope you’re all well! Today’s post is a bit of a special one because I’m about to introduce my very first guest blogger to you! I have never had anyone write a guest post for my blog but when the lovely Remi asked me whether she could write a blog post for me because she loves writing but doesn’t have the time to keep up her own blog momentarily, I loved the idea. My blog has been so focused on beauty lately I love that she is bringing a bit of fashion back. So without further ado here is Remi’s post on Blake Lively’s Street Style.

How To: Blake Lively Street Style by Remi Mayer

A couple of days ago, I saw a photo of Blake Lively in a gorgeous yellow floor-length dress, which inspired me a lot. No matter if she’s walking down the street or the red carpet, her killer style leaves people speechless. Since we all look for a flawless street style in hot summer days, I’ve decided to take a peep at Blake’s wardrobe and present you with her most successful casual outfits. Check them out below.

Style 1: Vibrant and chic

What I like the most about Blake’s style is the manner in which she rocks it. She looks sooo cute and graceful regardless of what she wears. This might seem so because she always makes the perfect balance of the fabrics, colors and prints, which can be seen in this photo. If you need a simple, yet effective look for a walk in the park, maybe you should combine a light floral blouse with a pair of tight jeans and kitten heel booties, just like Blake did. It’s both stylish and comfortable!

Style 2: Casual and cool

Even the most effortless look requires a lot of layering and accessorizing, which Blake showed us in this picture. She made the perfect basis for her casual outfit, combining high-waisted capri pants with a classic black top. Gucci brown leather biker jacket, a super-cute Pandora box bag, a feminine beige chapeau and gorgeous black loafers were the final touch that made this street style simply flawless.

Style 3: Delicate printed pants

Blake knows how to rock cute printed pants, which have filled the shelves of almost all designer clothing boutiques and stores! Such outfits can be ideal for both grabbing coffee with your friends or a fancy dinner, with slight modifications. I like this combination as it brings both a casual and feminine touch to the entire look. She combined embellished Emanual Ungaro bold printed leggings with a simple white tee and pointed-toe pumps in order to achieve a classy effect. If you’re planning to take a walk, I would always recommend replacing the pumps with chic ballet flats that are far more comfortable!

Style 4: Comfy and sophisticated

Personally, I love this combination the most because it’s simple and ultra-sophisticated at the same time. She decided to play with textures and colors, pairing nude zipper shorts with a gorgeous blue V-neck blouse. In order to make the outfit more complex, she went for cute gray peep toe booties and a red leather hobo. Finally, Blake decided to spice the outfit up with accessories, including a beautiful and feminine marine necklace that fitted her entire style perfectly.

Natural look

Achieving a perfect look isn’t just about the latest fashion trends. It’s also about the choice of perfect hairstyle and makeup. This season, natural look is tremendously popular and Blake Lively rocks it perfectly. As you could see from all these photos, her almost no make up look emphasizes her natural and radiant beauty. So, instead of heavy foundation and overly intense makeup, go for warm and natural nuances that will make your skin fresh and glowing.

All in all, achieving a Blake Lively look isn’t that complicated at all. I’ve decided to go with these street style ideas because they are easy to achieve and, at the same time, they look sophisticated and glamorous. Enjoy!

My New Favorite Red Lipstick From The High Street

You guys might know by now how much of an obsessive lipstick hoarder I am and my collection is constantly growing as I love experimenting with different and sometimes quite exotic colors. However, nothing can bet a classic red lip for me and I’m always on the hunt for a new one. When L’Oreal released their Pure Red collection I was quite intrigued  to try one. I basically straight away knew which one I wanted to go for without even having to swatch it and the one I purchased is Blake’s Pure Red. First of all I’ve loved Gossip Girl since the very first episode came out all the way back in 2007, so I just had to get Blake’s color, right?

The main reason I opted for this shade though is that it’s a deep cherry red with blue undertones. I’m blonde with light skin and blue eyes, which means cool toned reds such as this shade are perfect for my complexion. I just had to get this and it’s very far from a disappointment. Basically Blake’s Pure Red is the most perfect classic true red if you’re looking for a cool toned red that isn’t too pricey. Seriously, if you’re blonde and have pretty fair skin you need to get this lipstick!!!

Another thing that really stands out to me about this lipstick is its formula. I, personally, prefer my lipsticks to be matte rather than glossy but unfortunately matte lipsticks can often be very drying which is such a shame. Take Mac’s Ruby Woo for example. It’s no doubt one of my favorite lipsticks ever but it can be so drying, easily clings to any dry patches and takes a lot of effort to wear. Despite Blake’s Pure Red being a lipstick with a matte finish it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a matte lipstick at all. In fact, it actually feels quite moisturizing on the lips and it glides on so smoothly. I’m so happy that this lipstick is so easy to apply. You don’t need to spend too much time on preparing your lips with scrubs, lip balms and what not unless you have incredibly dry lips. Otherwise this is so easy to wear. It’s not drying. It doesn’t cling to dry patches and it doesn’t smudge.

Another impressive thing is how insanely pigmented this little stunner is, especially considering that it’s from the drugstore. But then again L’Oreal is one of the pricier drugstore brands and they have a great range of products, so I always expect a little more of them but this lipstick can definitely keep up with some high-end lipsticks in pigmentation and longevity of wear as well. I also really love the packaging. The black mixed with some golden details looks really classy and far from tacky, so it goes perfectly with the classic shade of the lipstick.

Basically I’m obsessed. This is one of the prettiest shades I’ve come across in the drugstore and I’ve been wearing it so much lately it’s become a staple in my make up bag. A big thumbs up to L’Oreal for creating this amazing lipstick!

Have you tried any shades from the Pure Red Collection? Which is your favorite?

Thanks for reading!

Much love,
