Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't need a red carpet to show off her style.
The Oscar winner didn't make an appearance at New York's glamorous Met Gala this year, but was sure to make the more casual-yet-chic scene at her Goop Pop-Up shop in Los Angeles.
Paltrow, 41, attended the star-studded gala last year, but later said she regretted it.
"I'm never going again. It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all," she told USA Today after the event.
True to her word, Paltrow skipped the ball on Monday, and the next day attended the opening of the Goop shop in L.A.'s celeb-friendly Brentwood Country Mart.
The mother of two dressed casually in a white T-shirt, black blazer, jeans and heels, and managed to look effortlessly pulled together. Mom Blythe Danner showed up to support her little girl as well.
Inspired by Paltrow's lifestyle blog, the shop is loaded with high-end clothes and housewares.
The two grabbed dinner together at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, and did their best to keep the meal as low-key as possible.
"You can be with someone very wonderful, but because of your own issues you cannot let that be celebrated in the right way," Martin recently told BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe.
