Vanessa Hudgens carries an oversized bag on a solo shopping trip in NYC wearing a plunging summer dress... after Italian vacation

She recently returned to the Unites States after a romantic trip through Italy's coast with her boyfriend. 

But on Thursday Vanessa Hudgens went solo on a shopping trip in New York's Soho district. 

The 30-year-old actress wore a summer wrap dress as she headed through the city.

The former High School Musical star was in a yellow wrap dress that featured a white pattern. 

Showing some of her chest in the plunging dress, it also had a lettuce hem and a thin string tied around her waist.

She paired with three gold necklaces, gold Birkenstocks, rings and think black sunglasses hanging on the tip of her nose.

Be a bronze goddess like Vanessa Hudgens in Birkenstocks

Vanessa Hudgens looked summer streetstyle ready as she stepped out in New York wearing a cute peach wrap dress, her favourite basket bag and a pair of cult bronze metallic slides.

They are, of course, Birkenstocks. The famous chunky sandals are always a favourite among the fashion pack and Vanessa is just one of many celebrities and influencers to be on board with their popularity.

Birks are so comfy and come in so many different styles, so we don't blame her!

Vanessa had her hands full as she carried an extremely oversized bag from her trip to Tumi and a wicker tote hanging off her left arm. 

Her hair was up in a messy bun as she made her way through the cross walk. 

Her NYC shopping trip comes after a trip to the coastal Italian city of Sardinia with beau Austin Butler.

The singer shared snaps from their trip that included sunset views and boat rides. 

One post was of two photos of herself and the-27-year-old lounging in a shady respite from the beaming sun.

The 5ft1in beauty had on a strapless suit with thick yellow and white vertical stripes. 

Seated beneath Vanessa was her boyfriend Austin, who recently showed off his chilling side as a devotee of Charles Manson in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

Earlier this week, the couple were joined on their yacht off the Sardinian coast by Game Of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel as the trio soaked up some sun. 

In addition to flaunting her glamorous looks, Vanessa shared a cute Insta Story featuring her pooch Darla, whom she adopted last year while promoting her movie Dog Days.

'When u go to the bathroom, come back and your dog has taken your spot. Lol,' she wrote over a short clip of the dog snoozing peacefully right below Vanessa's pillow.

She and her longtime boyfriend seem to be as happy as ever on their Italian trip.

The two first began dating back in 2011 and appeared to be going as strong as ever.

While her boyfriend has been tapped to play Elvis in the biopic, earlier this year she starred in Netflix's neo-noir action film Polar and filmed the third Bad Boys film, Bad Boys for Life with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. 

The film is set to be released in 2020.
