She revealed last month that she wouldn’t be appearing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians anymore in order to focus on her nascent acting career.
While her boyfriend Scott Disick was away filming the reality series in Palm Springs, Sofia Richie was able to enjoy a lovely day out with her mother Diane Alexander, 52, in sunny Malibu.
The 21-year-old model stayed warm in a tan sweater as she took her mom out to lunch at the swanky Italian restaurant Tra di Noi.

Sofia lightened up her ensemble by pairing a set of white jeans with her loose-fitting sweater.
She completed the casual look with white sneakers, a pink handbag and sporty black sunglasses while wearing her dirty blonde locks back in a tight bun.
Diane matched her daughter’s earth tones with a long cream and brown cardigan, a white sweater, white jeans and white combat boots.
The mother–daughter duo affectionately linked arms as they strolled through the parking lot after their tasty lunch.

Diane began her relationship with Sofia’s father Lionel Riche in 1986, though he was still married to Brenda Harvey at the time.
He married the dancer in 1995, two years after divorcing Harvey.
In addition to Sofia, the couple welcomed an older son, Miles Brockman, in 1994. The Commodores singer had previously adopted Nicole Richie during his marriage to Harvey.
Sofia shared her delicious-looking lunch entrée to her Instagram Stories, which appeared to be the Orecchiette al Tartufo, a creamy dish with dome-shaped orecchiette pasta, peas, mushrooms and a generous portion of shaved black truffles.
Though Sofia wasn’t making any more appearances on KUWTK, she couldn’t totally escape their reality empire, as her boyfriend Scott Disick’s Flip It Like Disick co-star Miki Mor joined them for lunch.
She posted a short clip of Scott’s contractor as he picked out two desserts from a tasty sampler plate.

Though Sofia opted for a more private life without the reality series, she still opened up about her relationship with Scott in the April issue of Cosmopolitan.
Though she and Scott have come under fire from some followers because of her relative youth and their 15-year age difference, she didn’t seem particularly concerned.
When asked about the relationship, she said she has ‘this weird thing where I just don’t care what people think.’
The constant criticism ‘doesn’t bother me because I’m very happy,’ she said.
‘Why would I let someone from the middle of nowhere ruin that for me?’

Sofia has had to navigate her sometimes-strained friendship with Scott’s ex Kourtney Kardashian, but she didn’t find it that difficult to manage.
‘I mean, just be nice. There’s no reason not to be nice.’
She infamously joined Scott, Kourtney and their three young children on a family vacation, which appeared last year on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
