After a tough day on the beach doing an exotic looking photo shoot, Solange Knowles has been enjoying some down time with her friends in Croatia.
Beyoncé's younger sister still managed to look great though as she wore a straw hat with white knit sun dress and some gladiator sandals finishing off her look on Friday.
The beautiful 26-year-old sported some cat-eye tortoiseshell sunglasses as she strolled around the island of Hvar while still wearing her lengthy braids down, clutching a large bag during her walkabout.

Solange seemed to be having fun as she went exploring with her two friends after embarking on a very busy schedule recently.
She jetted into Croatia for a four day holiday after performing six shows over five days - including seven flights to five different countries.
So, it was a well deserved rest for the talented performer who has been posting some videos of her time in Croatia to sharing app Vine.

On Thursday Solange showed off her super long braids during her photo shoot - with her hair pulled to the side she looked like the Goddess Venus as she emerged from the crystal blue waters.
Wearing a lace tunic with golden cuffs on each arm she accentuated with chunky hoops dangling from underneath.
At one point she raised her arms into the air and closed her eyes for a more dramatic look - before she changed into a patterned kaftan as the shoot moved to the stony beach of Bracu.

The mother-of-one will be releasing her third album Sole Responsibility later this year after working with talented producer Hynes.
Solange's new sound has earned her more fans but she is still nowhere near eclipsing her superstar sister Beyoncé who enjoys worldwide recognition.
Queen Bey is preparing to return to the studio to record her fifth studio album - which will feature Timbaland, The-Dream, Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake.
