Tracee Ellis Ross shared throwback pictures on Thursday, remembering when she could travel freely before the coronavirus pandemic began early last year.
The 48-year-old Black-ish and Mixed-ish actress posted the photos on Instagram but did not mention the location.
She is seen relaxing in the sunshine wearing a red two-piece swimsuit and eating an apple in the snaps. Her long black hair is tied up in a neat bun, and she is wearing a pair of sunglasses to shield her eyes from the bright sunshine.
She shared the photos and captioned one of them, “when I used to fly places,” as she reminisced about her travels and experiences before restrictions were imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tracee Ellis Ross, who is the daughter of music legend Diana Ross, also referred to her throwback location as a “pretty place,” which allowed her to take time “away from home.”
Last year, she shared more sunny bikini pictures on Instagram. In August, she gave fans a glimpse of what appeared to be her garden as she reclined on a bench wearing a two-piece black swimwear set and draped a khaki jacket casually around her waist.
In the caption, she told her ten million followers that she was “too scared” to throw a party, apparently referring to the risk of coronavirus, but that she was telling Siri to “play ‘Summertime'” as the sun shone against her glowing skin.
In other posts on social media, Ross shares her feelings about restrictions on travel, saying she is “longing for Italy.”
Tracee Ellis Ross recently revealed that she is “happily single,” but she would not mind finding Mr. Right.
The star explained: “[T]hat doesn’t mean I am not open to and don’t want a relationship. But in my wonderful and robust experience of being single, I have learned to have a productive relationship with loneliness and an intensely juicy relationship with my joyful solitude—I really enjoy my company.”
She added that she is focused on self-love: “I used to spend so much time trying to be perfect to get it perfect. But that’s not realistic. Bad feelings come up. There was an element of risk to try something different—to try on the idea of: What if the universe is conspiring for good? Not necessarily mine, but what if I don’t have the full picture here? What if this is all OK? And that was the start of a turning point. If you keep putting good stuff in your cup, eventually, it overflows. And you’ll be like, ‘Oh, I need a new container.'”
Ross has recently starred in the comedy-drama The High Note, playing a “superstar singer.” She stars alongside Dakota Johnson, who plays her underappreciated assistant, craving a taste of the music life as a producer.
