Gabrielle Union is ready to skip over spring and head straight into summer and she's got the beach-ready ’fits to prove it.

The 49-year-old actress just saw the release of her Cheaper by the Dozen remake, where she stars alongside Scrubs actor Zach Braff. But in between her visits to the red carpet, Union has still found time to show off more stunning outfits on Instagram.

Union's latest ensemble from New York & Company looks like it belongs to a character from H20: Just Add Water. The seafoam green sweater dress was constructed out of a knit material, with a deep-V neckline and cutouts at the hips and lower back. The dress also features slits on both sides of the skirt. (And did we mention it's on sale?)

This mermaid-esque gown is part of the Gabrielle Union collection at NY&Co, and along with her slideshow showing off the dress, Union said, “It’s the cut outs for me [fire emoji]. New @nyandcompany. Shop at link in bio!”

Throughout the pics, Union shows off her outfit while posing on a pristine, white balcony that overlooks the ocean. As she leans against the railing and does her best Dangerously in Love pose, we can see that Union paired the cozy gown with brown sandals and large, skinny hoop earrings. Meanwhile, the star's wavy hairdo was tied up in a high ponytail.

Fellow celebs showed their love for the pics, like photographer Nino Muñoz who left a heart emoji and diamond emoji in the comments. Model Afiya Bennett wrote, “Yes yes,” along with a series of heart-eyed emojis.

Don't mind us while we go grab our credit cards to get this Gab Union-approved ’fit.
