Lucy Hale cuts a casual figure while enjoying an afternoon of shopping in the California sun

Actress Lucy Hale was spotted out shopping in California on Saturday afternoon, looking relaxed in a casual ensemble.

The Pretty Little Liars star was seen browsing the stores in Los Angeles, sporting a denim jacket, a white tank top, black skinny jeans and sneakers. She completed the look with a pair of sunglasses and carried a black tote bag.

The 31-year-old star appeared to be in good spirits as she made her way around the shops, occasionally stopping to chat with friends who were also out and about.

At one point, Lucy stopped to take a selfie with a fan, and was seen smiling and laughing as she posed for the photo.

The star was no doubt enjoying the warm California sunshine, which has been a welcome relief from the cold weather in many parts of the US.

Lucy is currently filming the upcoming movie A Nice Girl Like You, in which she stars as a young woman who embarks on a journey of self-discovery after being accused of being too inhibited by her ex-boyfriend.

The film is set for release later this year, and is sure to be a hit with fans of the talented actress. Until then, Lucy can be seen out and about, enjoying the California sun while shopping with friends.
