It looks like Amanda Bynes is having a smiley summer!
The star, who celebrated her 30th birthday in April, made a rare public appearance out and about in West Hollywood, California on Thursday. Bynes looked happy and healthy as she waved to photographers while strolling through town in dark-wash jeans, a gray pullover sweatshirt and white ballet flats.
In April, Bynes was spotted celebrating her birthday at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California. The star has emerged with a more low profile lifestyle after a turbulent few years.
But the actress is “doing great,” the Bynes’ family attorney told PEOPLE earlier this year. “She is happy and healthy and excited about the future,” Tamar Arminak said.

And Bynes’ lawyer David Esquibias told PEOPLE she has enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles in preparation for a career in fashion. She first enrolled in 2014 and started taking classes again in October 2015.
“Amanda is doing great, enjoying school and thriving creatively,” he said in April. “She appreciates all of the love and support she receives from family, friends and fans.”
A source close to Bynes also echoed similar sentiments about her budding fashion career, and said her work is “incredible.”
“She is working on her own designs, which are incredible thus far,” said the source. “She hopes to launch her line soon.”
