She has spent more time in Los Angeles in recent months as her relationship with her former fiancé Ben Affleck has warmed up.
And Jennifer Lopez took another step toward a permanent move to Southern California when she visited a school in Santa Monica on Saturday with her son Max, 13, in tow.
The 51-year-old actress and pop star had all eyes on her thanks to a relaxed ensemble that highlighted her curves.

Jennifer looked relaxed in a slim black turtleneck that hugged her torso, which she had tucked into her high-waisted jeans.
The skinny pants were torn across the knees and thighs and frayed around the edge, and she held them up with a black Chanel belt in leather with a gold buckle.
She matched the pants with a stylish set of gray-blue suede stilettos with eye-catching gold tips for heels.
The Out Of Sight star blocked the penetrating sun with a beautiful set of square metal frame sunglasses.

He blocked the sun with a blue Vans baseball cap and wore gray shorts with black Converse sneakers in high top.

Gets serious: Hustler’s actress is trying to nail a school for her children amid reports that she’s ready to move in with her boyfriend. ‘They plan to move in together very soon,’ an insider told Us Weekly on Thursday
Hustler’s actress is trying to nail a school in the LA area to her children amid reports that she is getting ready to move in with her boyfriend.
‘Ben and Jen spend almost every night together when they’re not working,’ an insider told Us Weekly on Thursday. ‘They plan to move in very soon.’
The news came ahead of a July 7 report that the couple is ‘obliged’ to ‘spend the rest of their lives together’ after realizing they have found ‘true love’ per se.
‘They are fully committed to taking the next steps and spending the rest of their lives together … As far as they are both concerned, they are just blessed to have found each other and discovered true love, like most people can only ever dream of. ‘
In June, a source told People that the Armageddon star was coming in with his girlfriend’s children.
‘They are slowly learning Ben,’ said the source. ‘Everything seems to run smoothly. It’s very obvious that Jennifer’s serious about Ben. She has not looked so happy in a long time. ‘
Growing Close: In June, a source told People that Ben was infiltrating Jennifer’s children. ‘They are slowly getting to know Ben,’ said the source. ‘Everything seems to run smoothly’
Scenery change: Jennifer and the twins have been based in Miami, but they are reportedly on board moving to California with her
They added that Max and Emme were ‘on board to start fresh in Los Angeles’, where Ben is based.
The actor, writer and director does not prefer to go far from LA as he will be able to spend as much time as possible with his son and daughters.
Jennifer has long been based in Miami, where her ex-husband also lives, but she seems more open to a west coast move, especially now that her teens seem to support the idea.
Their renewed relationship seems to be a kind of wish fulfillment for the Out Of Sight actress, who sees Ben as ‘the one who got away’, a source told Page Six last month.
‘Jennifer always saw Ben as the one who got away. She was crushed after they broke up, even though at the time she felt she had no choice but to interrupt their engagement, ‘the insider said.
The A-list couple originally started dancing in 2002 and got engaged later that year, but they broke off the engagement and split in early 2004.
