Ella Purnell found the perfect way to battle the California heat in June 2022, but she still admitted to being"hot & bothered." The Yellowjacketsstar updated her Instagram that summer in a stylish, sporty look, showing off her toned figure and treating herself to an ice cream. Looking like she was struggling with the sweltering heat, and likely exaggerating her facial expression, Ella delighted fans with her sunkissed snap, one showing her out and about in Solvang, CA. The town, known for its windmills and Danish bakeries, also looks like it's got a great ice cream parlor — holding a delicious-looking ice cream cone, Ella posed backed by a windmill.

Ella Purnell Is 'Hot & Bothered' With Ice Cream

Scroll for the photo. Standing in a mid-rise pair of jeans and with a white shirt wrapped around her waist, Ella highlighted her gym-honed abs in a fun, checkered crop top worn braless. Rocking her black and white top as she sent out sports bra vibes, the 27-year-old stuck her tongue out to lick her massive ice cream, using one hand to hold the waffle cone.

Looking a little flustered and definitely hot, Ella sent out a "tired and unimpressed" expression, wearing shades atop her head, plus her dark locks mostly tied back. "Hot & bothered," the actress wrote as fans left her over 24,000 likes.

"Hello, Hot & Bothered!" one fan replied. Another, seemingly knowledgable about Solvang, replied: "Los Olivos > Solvang. Do yourself a favor and check it out." Ella doesn't need to worry about a couple of dollars for an ice cream. In fact, she wore the same top one month earlier while earning herself some influencer cash on Instagram. "Kicking back in some classics," she told fans in May 2022 while rocking Vans and promoting the footwear brand.

Snacking On Fries In Bikini

May 2022 also saw Ella Purnell tease her fans with her swimsuit curves as she enjoyed a shaded spot while snacking on fries. Stripping down to a leopard-print bikini as she flaunted her cleavage and toned abs, she cheekily posed holding a fry to her mouth while telling fans: "Chips of fries, you decide."

The "chips" were a reference to Ella being British — in the U.K., fries are called "chips." A geotag had placed Ella in Palm Springs, CA, but there's somewhere else she'd rather be.

Mac 'N' Cheese Pie In Barbados

Speaking to Conde Nast Traveller, Ella outlined: "I’ve been to Barbados three years in a row now, and it’s just amazing. I love the food, the people, the music, the vibe. Get the famous local mac pie, which is mac and cheese, but in a pie, and it will blow your mind – crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle, the perfect cube of carby goodness."
