Warning: This post may read like a teenager gushing about their favourite celebrity - it's actually a person in their mid-twenties gushing about their favourite celebrity.
I've always been a huge fan of Blake Lively and her style and wanted to do a post on her for quite some time, so I thought what better day to write one than her Birthday! (I read once somewhere that her birthday was on the 25th of Aug. and I'm good at remembering dates, that's how I know. I'm not some psycho-stalker-fan. Just a regular-crazy-fan).

So, Blake Lively - where to begin? Whether she's playing It-girl, Serena Van Der Woodsen on Gossip Girl....

She has quickly become a style icon in her own right. I love everything she wears!
And I especially love her long, thick, wavy hair...

...which is something we both have in common (and the fact that we were both born in 1987) - except her's is golden like sunshine and mine, dark as night. She gives me the confidence to wear my hair au natural and rock it, without feeling the need to always have it pin straight or meticulously curled.
She's always my first source of inspiration when trying to put together outfits. Can't wait to see what she wears next...

Happy Birthday, Blake Lively (even thought it's technically not 25th Aug in Australia anymore - it still is in the States)! xoxo
