Steal the look: Celebrity mom Kelly Ripa
Talk show host and supermom Kelly Ripa looka as radiant as ever in this sunny outfit. Steal her look and feel the cheer!
Steal a tailored blazer from your work wardrobe and add it to a casual ensemble as Kelly does here. Though the blazer's usually reserved for more professional wear, Kelly keeps it laid back by leaving it unbuttoned and rolling up the 3/4-length sleeves. Kenneth Cole New York's Single Button Boyfriend Blazer has crisp lines even with its loose fit, and has analogous 3/4-length sleeves. If you don't already own a black blazer, you'll find it's an all-purpose, ultra-functional piece, and this particular one offers a lot of quality for the money.

Kelly's whole outfit seems to center around her sunshine-yellow top. The layered ruffling gives her petite frame a bit of shape and adds visual interest to an otherwise monochrome piece. Forever 21's Silk Zipper Ruffle Top is the same shade of cheerful yellow as Kelly's and has comparable thick ruffling down the front. Though you won't be able to see it with the blazer layered over it, the top features a stylish exposed zipper in the back. And for ultimate convenience, this top is machine washable.
