Jennifer Garner was spotted out this weekend putting on a leggy show in a miniskirt.
According to the Daily Mail, Garner was spotted as she went to dinner with her friends over the weekend in Santa Monica. She was seen looking chic and comfortable, as she smiled while the paparazzi snapped photos of her outside of the Giorgio Baldi restaurant.
The actress wore the brown leather miniskirt paired with a khaki colored shirt with a tan knit sweater over top, and completed her look with some matching sneakers. Jen had her shoulder-length, brown hair parted down the middle and styled in natural-looking strands, which fell over her shoulders to frame her famous face.
Garner carried a matching brown leather clutch, and sported a pair of black framed glasses. She was spotted embracing her friends before jumping into a car that was waiting for her after dinner.
Garner wasn’t accompanied by her boyfriend, John Miller, for the outing, and also didn’t have her children with her. Perhaps the three kids, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, were with their father, Garner’s former husband, Ben Affleck. The pair split years ago, but only finalized their divorce in late 2018 after the actress was reportedly instrumental in getting Affleck into rehab for his alcohol abuse issues.
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding,” the couple said in a joint statement, while announcing their split, back in 2015.

If summer feels forever away, and you have lingering candy cane dreams— this delicious recipe for mint chip ice cream by @cookieandkate is just the trick. And, honestly, it’s not too terrible for you and your new year’s resolutions. ????????????????♀️ . Fresh Mint Ice Cream Ingredients: – 2 cups 2% milk – 1 cup half&half – 20 fresh mint leaves – 3/4 cups turbinado (raw) sugar – dash of salt – 2 large egg yolks – 1 teaspoon real vanilla – 1/2 cup chocolate chunks (optional for chocolate lovers ????????♀️) . Directions: 1. Combine milk, half&half and mint leaves in a medium sized, heavy sauce pan over medium-high heat. Heat until tiny bubbles form around the edge (about 180°). Do not let boil! 2. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes. That gives the mint flavor time to steep. 3. Uncover it and pour the mixture through a colander into a medium bowl. Press the mint leaves slightly with a big spoon to get all the flavor. Discard the leaves, and pour the liquid back into your pan. 4. In a new bowl, combine sugar, salt and egg yolks. Stir with a whisk until the mixture is pale. 5. Gradually add half of the milk mixture to the egg mixture, while stirring constantly with a whisk. 6. Pour the egg/milk mixture back into the pan with the rest of the milk. 7. Cook over medium-low heat for about two minutes (or to 160°), stirring constantly. 8. Pour the mixture into a bowl. Stir in the vanilla extract. 9. Place the bowl in the fridge until the mixture cools completely, stirring occasionally. 10. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. 11. Add optional chocolate chunks once the mixture is set and churn a little longer. 12. If you’d like the ice cream to harden up a little more, freeze it for a couple of hours. 13. Yum.
