Has Blake Lively Mastered Maternity Style? (Yes)

Spotted...just kidding. Forget Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants; forget Gossip Girl; forget Preserve (R.I.P.) — all in that order. Let's focus on the fact that Blake Lively has broken out of what could have been a pretty hard shell to crack. Gone are her days of ripped jeans and headbands, for we are in the Age of Adaline Lively. A street style star in her own right, the actress is at the top of her game right now (thanks to a stylist and several pairs of six-inch pointed-toe pumps, of course).

And the photographs ahead will explain what we're talking about. Our findings conclude that Ms. Lively, now married with children (and one on the way!), can wear up to six outfits in one day and still have a smile on her face, loves color (and will block that color any chance she gets), and without a doubt, will try every trend once. That, our friends, is how you take your style to the next level. You know you love her...(yes, we had to).

At first glance, it might seem like there's a lot going on here. But the trick is to stay in the same color palette. It makes accessorizing easy.

Sure, we could make a Pretty in Pink reference here, but we're more focused on those high-waisted flares.

There must have been a glitch in the printing of this dress, and we're totally okay with that.

It's hard not to think of a scrumptious black-and-white cookie when looking at this Gucci dress, but just try to think outside of the cookie jar box.
