The hiking boots trend is going strong, as Blake Lively proved in New York City yesterday.
On Wednesday afternoon, the actress was spotted running errands wearing a simple, comfy outfit: a white long-sleeved Henley top with statement loose-fit striped blue slacks. Keeping the look functional, she finished off the ensemble with brown lace-up hiking boots by Chanel.
Lively’s rare paparazzi moment follows the recent launch of Betty Buzz, her line of nonalcoholic sparkling mixers. The actress said that she founded the new beverage brand—named for her family members—because she was looking for light, refreshing mixers containing more natural ingredients.
“I don’t drink. I know that’s odd coming from the wife of an infamous gin slinger,” Lively said in a statement regarding the brand, while also referencing her gin-loving husband, Ryan Reynolds. “Over the past many years of mixing but not drinking cocktails, it became clear mixers are the unsung heroes of the drink world and deserve just as much love as alcohol.”
Though Lively and Reynolds have been particular about maintaining their personal privacy, the two were spotted together in New York City’s Tribeca several weeks ago strolling around the neighborhood. For that outing, Lively opted for a white-and-navy checkered dress paired with a long navy cardigan and white boots, and wore her hair in a loose side braid. Reynolds looked earthy beside her in a white button-down shirt with olive-green studded detailing and matching pants.
Beyond business ventures and trolling one another on Instagram, the Hollywood couple have dedicated themselves to giving back to civil rights causes. Earlier this month, they announced that they will donate upward of $1 million to the American Civil Liberties Union and NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund for a fundraiser dedicated to social equity. Sharing the news on Twitter, Reynolds wrote, “We still believe in you, 2021. Let’s help @ACLU and @naacp_ldf change it together.”
