If You Can't Get Over Blake Lively's Sundress, Here's Where To Find Your Own

In a world of celebrities trying to be relatable, Blake Lively is still Serena Van Der Woodsen. Her clothes are a little fancier and better fitting than yours, and her blonde mermaid hair (it has to be insured, right?) is just a few shades less brassy than you can ever get yours. Don't even look at her husband, Ryan Reynolds, because he's certainly a level above any Bumble date you'd ever have.

At a July 21 party for the launch of Target's new kid clothing brand Cat & Jack, Lively showed up in full earth-mother force. With her breezy, floral dress and totally frizz-less waves, the actress looked every bit the Disney princess in disguise.

The soft floral dress was the creation of NYC-based designer Lindsey Thornburg.  Its loose sleeves and slit give off the perfect "I'm not sweating vibe" — one we could all use, given the current heat wave. And, if that's not enough for you, Lively changed from stilettos to white Converse halfway through the night. Mama's got to do what mama's got to do.

Thornburg and Lively go way back, and the star can often be spotted in her friend's patterned coats and ladylike dresses. Lively's never been shy about classic silhouettes, so it only makes sense she'd choose the style when dressing her burgeoning stomach.

While you and I can admire Lively's designer buys, we can't exactly afford them. Looking for your own version of the perfect sundress? You've come to the right place.
