The fashion entrepreneur -- who turned 36 on Sunday -- celebrated early with a relaxing beachside getaway on Thursday. She spent the day soaking up the sun and showing off her killer body in a red-and-yellow string bikini.

A few months after flaunting his six-pack during a vacation to Cabo San Lucas in January, Simpson's husband, former NFL pro Eric Johnson, stayed slightly more covered up while chatting with friends beside the water.
