Katie Holmes and her mini-me daughter Suri Cruise enjoyed some retail therapy in New York on Wednesday, July 14. The actress, 42, and her daughter, 15, were all smiles as they strolled the SoHo neighborhood in Lower Manhattan in casual chic outfits, hitting up retailer Scotch & Soda.

The Dawson’s Creek alum paired a stylish long-sleeved blue and white striped button-up with light-wash denim jeans, finishing the shopping look with black Gucci loafers and classic black tote bags. Her daughter, whom she shares with ex-husband Tom Cruise, wore an oversized white t-shirt, maroon shorts, and a bubble gum pink face mask.
In one snapshot, Katie can be seen pulling out her colorful Louis Vuitton wallet to pay for her shopping haul inside of Scotch & Soda, putting her fun dark purple nail polish in full display. The mother-daughter duo love their shopping sprees: in late April, the duo stretched their wallets in the big city, emerging with numerous bags of purchases.
That month, Katie paid tribute to her daughter on her birthday, sharing a throwback pic of Suri on Instagram on April 19. “Happy 15th Birthday Sweetheart! I love you!!!!!!” she captioned. “I can’t believe you are already 15!” She also gushed about Suri the following month on Mother’s Day, calling her the “sweetest daughter” in another throwback post.
While the actress has always remained relatively mum about her daughter publicly, she offered rare insights about Suri’s personality during her April cover story with InStyle last year. “My biggest goal has always been to nurture her into her individuality, to make sure she is 100 percent herself and strong, confident and able. And to know it,” Katie said. “She came out very strong — she’s always been a strong personality.”
She added of her daughter’s great resolve: “She’ll pick an activity and work her butt off until she’s really good at it. Then she’s like, ‘Okay, I’m going to try the next thing.’ She’s very focused and a hard worker.” In an interview with Australia’s The Daily Telegraph a few months later, Katie opened up about life with Suri amid COVID-19 quarantine.
“I like to keep her out of my interviews, but I will say that this time of quarantine has been such a lesson,” the actress said. “Just really looking at everything you have and celebrating the simplicity of making dinner and [spending] that time together.”
