Reese Witherspoon has shed a few pieces of jewelry amid her divorce from Jim Toth.

The Academy Award winner, 47, was spotted Saturday in Nashville without her wedding and engagement bands for the first time since she and Toth, 52, announced they made the "difficult decision to divorce" last week.

She stepped out in a preppy outfit featuring a blue-and-white striped button-down shirt tucked into white pants, adding a brown leather belt, matching sandals and a crossbody bag. The look was accessorized with black Ray-Ban sunglasses and several pieces of gold jewelry, but nothing on her ring finger.

A source told PEOPLE that the two "really are the best of friends," adding: "This is such an amicable decision. They are so committed to co-parenting together. They are invested in their whole family and making this as smooth as possible for everyone."

Another insider said that Witherspoon is "headstrong and focused," while Toth is the more "laid-back" one in their relationship. "They've been spending less and less time together while she was working," the source said.
