Blake Lively has taken the maternity-wear rule book and thrown it out of the window when it comes to her expecting-attire and, needless to say, we've loved seeing her baby bump grow under an array of very well put-together ensembles.
Her latest looks, however, completely has us stumped. Running errands around NYC with her gorgeous hubby Ryan Reynolds, we couldn't help but notice Blake's very steep choice of footwear.
Now, we're not one for bashing pregnant women for wearing heels AT ALL but we really just don't understand how Blake is able to walk so effortlessly in heels so high when she's rather, ahem, top heavy at this moment in time.
Kudos to her; she's working her super-high ankle boots — while toting a host of heavy bags, might we add — better than we would fair on a Saturday night with only a box clutch to weigh us down. Yep; she's a bit of an inspiration to us all...
We first clocked the 27-year-old actress (and one of our all-time favourite girl crushes) looking effortlessly chic in her skinny jean, long-line jumper and striped caped-cardigan get-up as she and Ryan made their way into a waiting car.
Then, a few hours later, we spotted Blake leaving her NYC hotel in a different top and jacket, but still rocking the same black suede booties, burgundy tote and skinny jeans. So, it looks like Blake managed to see out the entire day in her sky-scraper heels; something that every woman knows is no small feat.
While we LOVE Blake's daily dose of chic maternity-wear inspo; deep down, we can't wait to see her slug in out in sweatpants and trainers like the best of us...
