Nicole Richie Shows Toned Bikini Body In Colorful Swimsuit (PHOTO)

Looking good, Nicole!

Nicole Richie's toned bikini body looked gorgeous in California while she spent time recently at a Santa Barbara beach with her kids, Sparrow and Harlow. The mother of two wore a red-and-blue two-piece paired with dark sunglasses for the outing. They posed for pictures and looked for shells in the sand before heading back to a nearby pool.

The 31-year-old can credit her amazing bod to celebrity workout guru Tracy Anderson and to fresh juices by Pressed Juicery. And she's happy in her own skin.

"I feel [gets all fake dramatic] … great about my body," she told Glamour last year. "You know, aesthetically I can be picky, but I choose not to. I've taken huge leaps. I'm proud of that. I work out, and I get lots of sleep, and so I feel great. And that is most important."
