Chilling out: Olivia Wilde, 38, looked effortlessly cool and laid back in Daisy Dukes and cowboy boots while out in Los Angeles on Thursday
Olivia looked comfortable stepping out on the town in a plain white T-shirt and her Daisy Dukes, which had severely ragged hemlines.
She showcased her cropped legs under the shorts, culminating with her tall black boots, which were decorated with stunning feather-like charcoal designs.
The House star wore her long brown hair – which still looked wet – straight down her back, and she covered it in a black baseball cap.
She blocked out the piercing sun, which comes amid the LA heat wave, with a stylish pair of aviator sunglasses.

Finally home: She was back on the west coast after attending the world premiere of her second feature Don’t Worry Darling at the Venice Film Festival
Olivia completed her outfit with two bags: a small brown suede Gucci bag that she carried on her chest and a larger gray tote bag.
After taking care of her groceries, she was seen getting into her car and driving off.
Olivia looked upbeat despite her new film Don’t Worry Darling receiving disappointing reviews from critics. The film currently has a disappointing 43% rating among critics polled by Rotten Tomatoes, and the film’s score drops to an even worse 22% when only reviews from respected publications are included.
But even if critics don’t care for the psychological thriller, fans are certainly looking forward to it – or at least a chance to see her boyfriend Harry Styles live.
IMAX claimed Friday that Don’t Worry Darling has become the best-selling film of all time for early screenings in premium theaters, scheduled for September 19.
The screenings, which sold out within 24 hours, will be followed by a live Q&A broadcast to theaters featuring Olivia with Harry, Gemma, Nick, Kate Berlant and other cast members, although Florence and Chris are noticeably absent.

Freezing weather: She and Harry promoted the film at its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, but star Florence Pugh skipped a press conference and kept her distance from the two
The TV star had just emerged from the world premiere at the Venice Film Festival of her second feature Don’t Worry Darling, which stars Florence Pugh, her current boyfriend Harry Styles and Chris Pine, among others.
The lovebirds promoted the film with Chris and fellow stars Gemma Chan and Nick Kroll, but Florence, who plays the titular role, was notably absent from most of the festivities.
She skipped a press conference for the film which Olivia and the cast attended because her flight reportedly landed too late for her to get there, although she was later seen in nearby Venice while was unfolding.
At the premiere screening and on the red carpet, Florence seemed to keep her distance from her director.
It never ends: Problems within the production spilled over to the premiere when some fans were convinced on social media that Harry had spat on his co-star Chris when he sat next to him, although there is no evidence of this, and Pine’s representative denied it.
Problems within the production spilled over to the premiere when some fans were convinced on social media that Harry had spat on teammate Chris when he sat next to him.
A video showed Harry sitting next to Chris, who had clapped but instantly stopped when his co-star sat down.
However, the video clearly showed no spitting, and a second clip from another angle showed the two politely chatting seconds later.
A representative for Pine later vehemently denied that there had been any spitting.
Messy: Original Florence costar Shia LaBeouf also added to the drama surrounding the film after denying he was fired and sharing a video of Olivia begging him to stay with the production
Florence’s original co-star Shia LaBeouf also added to the drama surrounding the film.
He was originally set to star in Don’t Worry Darling before Olivia replaced him with Harry.
After LaBeouf was sued by his ex FKA twigs and details of his allegedly sexual drumming and harassment against her emerged, Olivia claimed she fired him from the production.
But the Honey Boy actor later produced a video that Wilde apparently sent to him pleading with him to stay with the production, and he claimed he left a “lack of rehearsal time”, while passing on e -emails to Variety to support his case.
Florence and Olivia reportedly had a quiet argument after the actress was reportedly uncomfortable with Olivia’s relationship with Harry on set, although she told Vanity Fair that her relationship with former costar Jason Sudeikis was “over long before” she and Harry first met.
