Celebrity Style Bargain: Blake Lively's Madewell Denim Jacket

Blake Lively wears a $118 Madewell Denim Jacket
Blake Lively looked radiant in a lemon yellow ballgown topped with her Madewell Denim Jacket ($118) while exiting The Today Show in NYC earlier this month. I'm not sure if the jacket was merely an afterthought to keep her warm (or cover her adorable baby bump) but I'm loving the juxtaposition of bright yellow with blue accents, carried out in the jacket and her jewelry. I'd copy this look with a simple summery yellow chiffon dress and blue crystal earrings. Blake's exact Madewell jacket is just $118 at and totally worth the price for something so versatile that you'll have - and love - for years!

Ashley's Summer Beauty Essentials
As the seasons change, so do the contents of my makeup bag. In the summer months, I pare everything down to simple basics and focus on taking care of my skin, which means rarely wearing a full face of makeup. I like keeping things light and easily manageable, making sure I can spend as much time as possible with friends, out in the sun and making memories. A handful of products can keep me glowing, moisturized, protected from UV rays and looking effortlessly gorgeous. I never run out of these fave five products and even keep a few extras in my purse and yoga bag. Read up on my summer beauty essentials, try a few and see if they make your top 5!
