When we first met Deena Nicole on Jersey Shore, she was a heavily bronzed guidette meatball, someone you might call Snooki’s other half. But since the show ended, Deena has grown up a lot and really come into her own. She’s even started settling down with her boyfriend, Chris Buckner, whom she recently went on an amazing and romantic vacation with to Aruba.

Deena worked really hard to slim down and get in amazing shape for her big trip, and all of her hard work has definitely paid off. We think she looks fabulous (even though she’s always been beautiful) and is sexier than ever. We’re loving her new summer look, which she recently shared with fans in a fresh new Instagram photo.

“Hittin the beach with my girls,” Deena wrote as a caption, smiling in this pretty pic of her looking naturally gorgeous with minimal makeup that highlights her big brown eyes and a lovely coral top that shows off her cleavage. Deena kept her sun-kissed hair straight and sleek, and her skin is noticeably free of fake tanner. So beautiful!

She has certainly calmed down a bit since her days at the Shore, and honestly, we love the new Deena! This gal can still party, but she’s always classy when she does!
