Shay Mitchell has been sharing sneak peeks of her tropical getaway with fans as she vacations in St. Barts. The Pretty Little Liars actress has posted several outfits of the day and swimwear shots, including a high-waisted leopard print bikini that she showed off on Instagram on Jan. 4.

In the carousel post, Mitchell paired the chic bikini with a straw beach hat and accessorized with sunglasses and a bracelet. In one photo, she posed on a beach with sand and a blue sky behind her as her long, dark hair cascaded down her back. Another one showed a close-up of her sun-kissed face in the same beach ensemble.

The 35-year-old actress also modeled a second swimwear look, rocking a white bikini top, paired with printed Gucci shorts, a patterned bandana and a bold chain necklace.

“No caption needed just happy,” she wrote.

“A swim suit in January is so elite😌,” commented one follower, while another person piped in to say, “Just a gorgeous person.”

The previous day Mitchell posted pictures to IG in which she wore a knit pink beach cover-up with a white one-piece swimsuit underneath. She accessorized with gold slide sandals, chunky gold heart-shaped earrings and a pair of pink Versace sunglasses.

It seems St. Barts is the hot place for A-list celebs to be lately, as SI Swimsuit model Camille Kostek shared snaps to IG from the tropical location on Jan. 2, while fellow SI Swimsuit models Rose Bertram and Kate Upton also vacationed there recently.
