We have been pretty impressed with Blake Lively as of late, what with her wonderful style at the 67th Cannes Film Festival this year, including her lovely makeup and that glamorously bold braid with a scarlet Givenchy gown. On Monday, Blake earns our applause once again with this sweet summer look she wore for the CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in New York City. Her full hair, simple makeup and pretty sundress offer a perfect style to steal for this upcoming season.

Of course, very few of us can afford the Michael Kors Resort 2015 dress she wore, nor her pink suede Casadei heels. But that doesn’t mean we can’t get a similar look at a way lower price point!

Dress: Atelier 61 Neon Flower Print Dress (House Of Fraser, $47) is a pretty alternative you can wear both in the office and out with friends.

Or, if you’re searching for a more dressed up version, the A Sweet Aperetif Dress in Mint (Modcloth, $58) is a stunning option, too.

Shoes: This pair of Enzo Agliolini Dollton Suede D’Orsay Pumps (Lord & Taylor, $65) is a dusty pink set of heels you’ll use well into autumn

As for makeup, you can get her pale pink lips and bright eyes very easily.

Face: Apply a lightweight primer like the Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfecter, then a dewy tint all over your face such as LUSH‘s Feeling Younger Skin Tint so you can look polished without sacrificing freshness. Use a creamy peachy-pink blush like Make Up For Ever HD Blush in 225 on the apples of your cheeks and blend.

Eyes: Apply a sheer bluish grey shadow to your eyes, such as Maybelline ExpertWear Eyeshadow Singles in Blue Blazes, then do two coats on your top lashes of a thickening mascara like Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara in Black. Tame brows with a transparent formula, like Illasmasqua Brow And Lash Gel, so your eyes are framed properly.

Lips: Keep lips looking full and smooth with Ardency Inn Boom Base, then apply a bubblegum pink lipstick. I’ve been obsessed with Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Bon Bon and L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolor Compact in Azalea.

Hair: Add some volume to hair using Fekkai Full Blown Lightweight Styling Whip to the roots, then tease a bit at your crown and put on this pretty pink headband from Forever 21.

    Forget the dress ands shoes, I weirdly love the lipgloss the most.

      I’m always such a fan of pale pinks on people’s lips. It makes her look like a fairy here.
