Denim Mini Shorts? That's How Katie Holmes Rolls In Miami

What do those fabulous A-listers do during the festive period? Well, unlike most who wrap up and snuggle up indoors - they pull on their old faithful denim shorts and make for the pool.

Katie Holmes is set to spend New Year's Eve in Miami with her seven-year-old daughter Suri and a close circle of friends. But yesterday, the 35 year-old American actress proved that a pink halter-style bikini, a plaid shirt and a pair of Levi's goes a long way.

Easy-on wares, messy updo and a pair of shades equals maximum effect.

Actress Katie Holmes is seen walking out and about in a blue and green plaid button down shirt, Levi's jean shorts and with a black camouflage print handbag in Miami, FL. <P> Pictured: Katie Holmes <P> <B>Ref: SPL673480  301213  </B><BR/> Picture by: Splash News<BR/> </P><P> <B>Splash News and Pictures</B><BR/> Los Angeles: 310-821-2666<BR/> New York: 212-619-2666<BR/> London: 870-934-2666<BR/><BR/> </P>

Oh to be sunning beside the pool at this time of year, the thing is Katie makes it all look pretty low-key. And can we just talk about that black camo handbag, complete with studded embellishment?

Clearly a Christmas pressie, and clearly a must-have this season whatever your locaton.
