She may have had a tough few months getting to grips with her divorce from Tom Cruise and unveiling a private view of her SS13 collection at New York Fashion Week in the space of a couple of months, but Katie Holmes is sure bouncing back.
The 33-year-old actress-turned-fashion designer showed off her fabulous figure in a leg-baring floaty mini-skirt as she strolled through New York with her privileged daughter Suri Cruise.
The vivacious six-year-old was seen hopping alongside her famous mother as they walked home from her upper-market private school, Avenues, which has a $44,000 a year tuition fee and is located near their Chelsea apartment.

And whilst Suri looked super cute in a grey coat, black Mary Janes and a pink headband, mum Katie Holmes looked as if she was channelling her inner school girl in her casual day time attire.
The newly single mother, who turns 34 next month, flashed some flesh in the beige skater skirt teamed with a striped unbuttoned blouse underneath a denim jacket, worn with sensible yet stylish flat shoes.

It looks as though Katie and Suri are beginning to enjoy each other's company on a daily basis without daddy Tom's presence, being spotted eating ice cream together regularly and visiting priceless places like the zoo – part of Katie's plan to bring Suri back down to earth.
Wearing her brunette locks ina loose, natural style with very little make-up Katie looked gorgeous as ever on the school run, and we bet she's inspiring a lot of single mum's out there!
