The first week of 2014 has already created cause for celebration twice in the celebrity world. If Twitter is to be believed, Blake Lively has welcomed a baby daughter named Violet into the world. And based on who her loving parents are, Violet is sure to have a culturally and sartorially enriched life. While I expect Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds to privately enjoy their baby bliss instead of incessantly tweeting pictures to the world, it stands to reason that Violet will be one well-dressed little kid.
Based on the heart-melting and eco-conscious designs Lively's website Preserve features for infants and Lively's own bohemian/glamorous style, here are 13 environmentally-friendly and utterly adorable styles which I hope Violet sports in the first few months of her life.
Lively herself is a fan of shearling booties, so it would only make sense to outfit her newborn in a similar look.

Vintage Floral Ruffled Dress
With her eco-conscious attitude and adoration of prints, Lively is bound to dress her child in an ensemble akin to this 100 percent organic cotton Kate Quinn dress.

Printed Maxi Dress
Like mother, like daughter: Lively’s infatuation with maxi dresses will likely transcend generations, especially in the form of this Sprout San Francisco Maxi Dress, which is created using non-toxic dyes and organic cotton.

Striped Cotton Dress
No fashionista’s wardrobe is complete without a striped knit, and this Estella Knit Layette Leah Baby Dress was created in an approved Bolivian Ethical & Fair Trade Manufacturing center, to boot.

Wide-Brim Printed Hat
Much like her character on Gossip Girl, Lively has been known to sport a wide-brim hat. This certified organic Egyptian cotton Under The Nile Flower Sun Hat is the ideal version for the daughter of a fashion icon.

As enchanting as she looks in couture, Lively also earns points for her usage of chic off-duty garments, like a thermal henley. This Burts Bees Baby Thermal Henley Bodysuit is made with organic cotton, an ideal choice for a mother-daughter coordinated look.

Cat And Mouse Dress
Based on her own favoritism of Preserve’s au courant wares, I would wager that Lively’s daughter is destined to sport this sweet, hand-sewn linen Cat And Mouse by Little Goodall, available on Preserve’s website.
