Reese Witherspoon posted an amazing shot of herself on Instagram yesterday that shows the actress in a stylish and pretty outfit that just wouldn’t look as good on someone else as it does on her. The Louisiana native simply oozes sex appeal and old-school glamour in the pic, too.

The Instagram photo shows a tanned Reese perfectly made up, posing poolside in a black bikini that’s partially concealed by a polka-dotted cover-up. The wild and mismatched sandals she’s wearing may even start a trend among her followers. The Instagram post so far has 218,266 likes

The Legally Blonde actress captioned the pic with, “Did someone say first days of summer?” The question was answered by fans, who said that “it’s actually pronounced ‘summa.'” Some fans ignored the sizzling question Reese posed about summer officially starting on June 21 and chose instead to do a little swooning over her.

The 42-year-old TV and movie star’s question certainly answered why Reese Witherspoon is a favorite. Replies ranged from “Love youuuu! Ugh why can’t we be best friends?” to “You are so Beautiful.”

Reese Witherspoon is also friends with Nicole Kidman in real life, and they play besties on the HBO series, Big Little Lies. She posted pictures of the two enjoying some coffee together a couple of days ago.

Big Little Lies was originally imagined as a miniseries, but its success has led to a second season that will see the original cast return. Season 2 will also add three-time academy award-winning actress, Meryl Streep. Reese also sent out a “Happy Birthday” post to the Devil Wears Prada actress, who looks stunning at 69.

Reese Witherspoon lights up social media every time she posts, especially when she dons a teeny bikini while discussing upcoming projects.

This includes projects such as her return as idealistic Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 3. Witherspoon took to Twitter and Instagram to post a video to let her fans in on the the news that the movie would soon be a reality. In the video, the starlet shared a GIF of her Legally Blonde character’s signature bikini with pink sequins as she floated on top of the pool’s water on a lilo.

That post got over 5 million views by people who couldn’t decide if they were more excited over the movie or Reese in the bikini.

Fans response indicated that they just couldn’t hold it together saying, “Omg I can’t wait!” and “WE ALL HAVE TO GO SEE IT????????”

Whatever Reese Witherspoon is doing, she always looks entrancing doing it. The ultimate beach girl is shown here in an Instagram pic taken on Memorial Day. The mother of Ava, 17, and Deacon, 13, makes 42 look like 22.

#MemorialDay weekend plans: Find beach. Stay all weekend. Anyone else?! ????????
