Her honey-toned tresses were swept up in a messy bun and she kept her makeup light and natural.

Lopez shielded her eyes with gold-framed sunglasses that had a retro brown-tint.

She appeared in a jovial mood during the family outing, though she enjoyed some time to herself as she browsed a high-end clothing store solo.

Meanwhile, Affleck and Max picked up some large soda drinks from a nearby food stand for them to sip on.

The Argo actor cut a casual-cool figure as he styled dark denim jeans with stark white Nike sneakers with a gold swoosh.

He completed the look with a black T-shirt and a marled gray blazer to stave off the chilly breeze that swept over the affluent LA neighborhood.

Max – who has a twin sibling Emme that did not join the trio on their shopping trip – looked cozy in a color-blocked hoodie, gray sweatpants and colorful sneakers.

The pair were previously engaged back in 2003 after co-starring in the box office flop Gigli, which was released in 2002.

Affleck and Lopez – often referred to in the media as ‘Bennifer’ – were one of Hollywood’s hottest couples in the early 2000s. Unfortunately, the duo called off their engagement in 2004 and went on to marry different people.

While Lopez married Latin singer Marc Anthony, Affleck moved on with  13 Going On 30 actress Jennifer Garner, 50. Affleck and Garner share three children: Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.

The former couple split in 2016 though their divorce was not finalized until 2018. They now amicably co-parent their kids.

She continued, ‘When I’m in love is when I’m inspired and I was the most inspired then and I have not made another record like that since then.’

‘I was in so much pain for so many years and my way of surviving was by working more and hiding that side of myself,’ she said. ‘But now 20 years later, it does have a happy ending.’

She said: ‘I was like it’s time for me to make another record and the reason we’re here is because I want to capture this moment in time because it is even better than the first time.’
