Her son Camden John is less than a month old, but Vanessa Lachey is already back in her jeans.

The 31-year-old's low key outfit was chic yet comfortable, while she had taken the time to blow dry her long brown hair.

Vanessa donned fitted blue jeans and sported a loose red printed top that fell three-quarters the way down her arm.
The brunette looked stylish yet casual as she teamed her long tousled tresses with oversize sunglasses beige sandals and a large Louis Vuitton bag.
The TV host had just enjoyed a meal with her friends and left her son at home with his presenter and singer father Nick Lachey.

Nick, 38, is usually the one seen out of the house since they started a family, regularly picking up food and drinks for his wife.

He told Parade magazine: ‘That smell of your newborn baby
doesn't last very long, but it's something you'll always remember.
‘So I find myself sniffing his head and his neck. There
is that baby smell that is so special, especially when it's your own baby.’
Nick also said fatherhood has thrown up many surprises
for him, but he's enjoying each and every one.

He added: ‘It's been a roller coaster, but all good. It's
been incredible to go through for the first time. It's all kind of surreal. Every
day is a new surprise or expression. It's a lot of fun. I try to do everything
with the baby. I sing to him. I shush him a lot. It's all about spending as
much as you can.’
The new father has also been inspired to write songs by
his new arrival, which he's planning on turning into an
‘I'm actually working on a lullaby project that's
inspired by Camden. I'm in the studio now finishing it up so it should be out
