Blake Lively  soaked in the CA sun while filming Gossip Girl  near the Pacific Ocean yesterday. She traded her usual down jacket  for a printed sarong on set, where she also had a laugh between takes. Blake was solo for the scene since her costars are all busy with other obligations. Penn Badgley  just traveled from a screening of Margin Call  in NYC to Miami while Ed Westwick popped up at an event in Melbourne . Leighton Meester  is on the go as well , but Blake has no trouble handling the cameras on her own. Next week, she'll wrap up her sunny LA trip and head to Las Vegas, where she's being presented with the award for breakthrough performer of the year at CinemaCon .
