Blake Lively is a farm girl — at least, that’s what her latest social media post suggests.

The Gossip Girl alum took to her Instagram account yesterday to share a pic of herself sporting overalls as she got her hands dirty on a farm. However, rather than pairing the overalls with steel-toed boots appropriate for manual labor, Lively sported cute heeled Hermes shoes, a Chanel purse and Brent Neale bling for the occasion.

Lively captioned the post on her grid, “Overall…it was a good day.”

On her Instagram Story, however, she detailed the inspiration for the look, writing, “@nicolerichie @parishilton clearly skewed my understanding of Farm Dress Code.”

Lively is, of course, referencing Hilton and Richie’s former reality show The Simple Life, which featured the socialites-turned-entrepreneurs doing non-Hollywood jobs such as farm work.

The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants star got plenty of praise for her outfit in the comments section of her post. Rita Wilson wrote, “Bejeweled and bedazzled.” A follower joked, “Accessorized the infinity stones better than Thanos did.” A third added, “Yee haw but make it glam.”

Lively, who recently launched her non-alcoholic beverage company Betty Buzz, showed off a distinctly different fashion look while supporting her husband Ryan Reynolds on the red carpet for Netflix’s The Adam Project. There, she sported a multi-colored gown with a high-slit and low neckline. She did, however, also sport some denim at the premiere, wearing a long denim jacket over the look in certain photos.

While the actress knows how to slay red carpet fashion, Lively who welcomed her third child in 2020, opened up on her Instagram Story last year about how hard it was to find clothes that fit in the months postpartum.

“It doesn’t send a great message to women when their bodies don’t fit into what brands have to offer. It’s alienating and confusing,” Lively wrote at the time. “And I wish I felt as confident [then], as I do now, a year later looking back. That body gave me a baby. And was producing that baby’s entire food supply. What a beautiful miracle. But instead of feeling proud, I felt insecure. Simply because I didn’t fit into clothes. How silly is that in retrospect.”
