The Bachelor alumna Rachael Kirkconnell is celebrating her 27th birthday and also simultaneously gearing up for Halloween. The influencer, who won Season 25 and is still dating the reality show’s lead, Matt James, channeled her inner Tinker Bell in a strapless green velvet dress featuring a figure-hugging bodice and puffy bubble hem. She paired the fairy-inspired number from Revolve with statement silver earrings, a chunky gold bracelet and several mixed-metal rings.

The Georgia native opted for a full glam moment, including feathered brows, sultry smoky eyeshadow, ultra-rosy blush and a glossy pink stained lip. Her medium length brown locks were perfectly smooth and straight.

“hello 27 💛🎂🍣thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes this week! and thank you to my angels for the best weekend. love you all sooooo much ♡,” she captioned the Oct. 6 carousel that she shared with her 936,000 followers.
