Vanessa Hudgens had a very painful start to 2016 when her father Greg died at the end of January from cancer at the age of 65.
The actress kept her work commitments by performing in Grease: Live and then shooting the new TV series Powerless in Canada.
So it was a very welcome break for the 27-year-old actress to spend some time in sunny Florida where she was seen hanging out with her sister Stella.

On Friday the Salinas, California native was seen hitting the beach in a turquoise blue and purple print romper that gathered in the middle.

A black leather cap, cross-body purse and Givenchy Paris black slides rounded out her Young Hollywood Hipster look. Dark red lipstick added an edge.

Her sister, in a blue and white dress, trailed behind.
