The Safe Haven actress, 24, slipped on a tiny metallic printed string bikini top and fashionable white lace short-shorts for her beachside jaunt on Friday, Apr. 26. The former Dancing With the Stars pro topped off her cool, casual look with a fedora and shades. See more photos of gal-pals Julianne Hough and Nina Dobrev in Miami.
It's been a busy month for the Hough, who debuted a fresh new 'do and blonder hue during an outing at Hollywood hotspot Chateau Marmont on Thursday, Apr. 11, just four weeks after she and then-beau Ryan Seacrest announced their decision to part ways.
Sources told Us Weekly that the pair, who had dated for nearly two years when they decided to pull the plug on their relationship last month, simply couldn't balance their demanding schedules any longer.
"Dude works all the time," a friend told Us at the time. "[Seacrest] never sleeps. It's a lifestyle she couldn't handle anymore. Work always, always came first [for him]. She wants a more low-key life."
Hough herself also hinted that it wasn't easy for the two of them to stay connected last year when she was shooting Safe Haven with Josh Duhamel in North Carolina. "We were working really hard, so we were really focused, but he came by a few times."
