santa monica


First post of 2015, wahoo!

Today, I'm going to talk about a special destination that everyone should stop by if they're ever in Southern California: Santa Monica.

Although I've been living in this sunny area for the entirety of my life, I haven't stepped on the wooden planks of Santa Monica Pier in ages. What is there to do here? Well, of course we need to start off with the gorgeous beach. The sand, the water... everything here is so clean, crisp, and beautiful. The pier has all sorts of fun activities, such as Pacific Park (Ferris wheel and roller coaster galore), Playland Arcade (they have photobooths), and Blazing Sandals bike rentals. If your stomach starts growling, you can grab delicious churros, funnel cakes, or try a meal at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Popular spots such as 3rd Street Promenade and Urth Caffe are just blocks away.

Warning: don't buy cotton candy when you're at the beach. You're going to become a sticky mess within seconds!

It's been quite a warm winter this year, so I opted to wear a breezy tee with my trusty pair of black high-waisted jeans. And, I thought these comfortable platform sandals were perfect for a day at the beach.
