Jennifer Lopez has made the case for dressing up again - even if it's just for a casual day by the pool. On Friday, the queen of athleisure put her loungewear to the side, trading in her bold leggings and comfortable sneakers for a return to full glam.

In a series of photos shared to Instagram, J.Lo posed poolside in a white blouse, a yellow skirt with a slit, and thigh-high gold platform boots. While her choice in footwear wasn't the most practical option, Lopez isn't one to follow so-called fashion rules. "Today's look," she captioned her post, which also included a mirror selfie and a snapshot of her sitting with her legs crossed (sans boots).

J.Lo accessorized with matching gold jewelry and a bouncy blowout, courtesy of her stylist Chris Appleton. Over on his grid, Appleton shared another glamour shot of Lopez, but this time, she was dressed in a silky jungle print robe.

"Bronx Barbie is back," he wrote.

Back in 2017, Lopez revealed the reason behind the nickname. "People always joke that they get to be around six different Jennifers all the time," she previously told StyleWatch. "They call it Barbie-there's Bronx Barbie when I'm doing my music stuff, or Business Mogul Jennifer when I'm all dressed up."

She continued, "I have a core of what I like and who I am. I like classy, but I like it to be sexy, and I like to feel confident. I have a little bit of Bronx in me, but I also have a lot of couture in me, too. I love the classics. It's just a mix of everything I've been exposed to throughout the years."
