Bodysuit: size 6 (runs small)/ Skirt (sold out), similar here, here and here/ Sunglasses/ Shoes, similar here/ Handbag

A few days late but nonetheless, I wanted to share the outfit I wore to my Birthday dinner with Austin last week!  We celebrated early since we had a sitter lined up and went to one of our favorite restaurants, The Market in Del Mar!  Each time I go there, I love it even more.  I wore this leopard print midi skirt which sold out but I did link some similar ones for you guys below!  I paired it with this $25 bodysuit which I am SO LOVING at the moment and can’t WAIT to wear with jeans or cutoffs!  It also comes in white and red! Pretty sure this is one of my favorite outfits I’ve ever worn!  I turned 38 Saturday and since I have so many new faces around here, I thought I’d share 38 unique facts about me-  since this seems really ALL ABOUT MEEEEEEEE for a post, I’m going to keep it as light hearted as possible!  Thank you for all of the sweet Birthday wishes and as always, thank you so much for following along! xo
