Blake Lively is the kind of friend you want in your corner. She’s goofy, loyal to her friends, and protective of her family. And her rule-breaking and down-to-earth style totally makes us want to raid her closet.
Blake Lively’s Instagram is basically a non-stop showcase of all the ways she is the totally real and totally relatable girl that makes her feel like she’s all of our BFF. Here are 40 of the top times we wanted to be a part of her crew.
1. She’s not afraid to look super silly. Goofy points!
2. She has absolutely no chill when meeting other celebs. Though TBH, Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown looks pretty stoked too.
3. She stages photo shoots of her killer manis instead of doing all the other million things she needs to do when the kids are in bed.
4. She FaceTimes her besties (and screencaps it, bc duh).
5. Her love for Disney will never die.
6. She hides at the gym instead of working out because ew, no thank you.
