car shots Hilary Duff scarf baby weight sneakers

Accessorizing her all-black ensemble with a beautiful bright scarf, Hilary Duff couldn't stop smiling as she made her way to a friends house, before hitting the recording studio in Hollywood, on Thursday afternoon.

The busy new mom has been plunging head-first into work after taking a break to welcome son Luca early this year, and Duff excitedly shared via Twitter early Thursday: "rushing to the studio to record...!!!"

Hill is currently recording a follow-up to her 2007 album, Dignity, after revealing in January that she had officially returned to the studio to lay down some new tracks. We can't wait to hear the finished product!
