I have long desired to see the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles. I finally got the opportunity, and it reminds me so much of the Boardwalk at home! I was thrilled to get to frolic on a beach and bask in the warm weather considering how cold it was at home in DC. The pier is exactly as I pictured it. The rides right on the pier are pretty unique. I love a good ferris wheel (to see, not to ride. Haha. My crippling fear of heights doesn’t really allow). We had a nice lunch out on the pier and soaked up some California sunshine. We didn’t have time to make it into town, but Santa Monica is known for cute shops and great eateries.
I chose this blue and white striped dress from J.Crew to wear. These big, beaded earrings from Kenneth Lane (Tuckernuck) are some of my favorites. I thought they were perfect for a fun LA beachy day!
The whole area had such fun boardwalk food places and little artists and sellers. It’s a lot of fun, and the parking was extremely reasonable. Plus the view is just spectacular!
Awesome little food stands. And yes… we DID get a funnel cake.
This view is pretty spectacular. I highly recommend a visit to Santa Monica if you’re in town!
