Happy Friday loves! I am beyond thrilled it’s finally the weekend. I normally don’t like to wish days away but this week was just no bueno. You guys ever have one of those blah weeks? I try to re-focus my energy on positive things when bad
days weeks happen but sometimes, oof – it’s very difficult.
On a happier note, today I’m sharing one of my favorite, comfy casual outfits that I wore while spending a day at the Santa Monica Pier with the hubs earlier this month. If you’ve been missing all the Cali fun, girl.. where you been? I’ve been posting vacation pics like a mad woman (almost done, I promise!) in this post, this one, and this one too. If you ever plan on taking a California vacation, I really recommend stopping by the Santa Monica Pier (and Manhatten Beach, but that’s another post). Yes, it’s very touristy but you can’t beat the fun atmosphere and Third Street Promenade.

My husband is not about crowds and likes to avoid them at all costs but one of his favorite spots is the pier. I think it holds a special place in both our hearts because it was one of the first trips we ever took together as a couple. We had such a great time that trip (almost 9 years ago!) that those feel-good feelings flood back when we get to walk the pier again.
If you plan on visiting definitely bring cash. The vendors don’t take credit cards (that I know of) and you’re definitely going to want to try the Mexican street corn and mango. The rides on the pier aren’t cheap either! But the good news is there’s a bathroom at the end of the pier so I guess, silver lining? We love parking by the promenade, spending time at the shops, having food and drinks at the most touristy looking spot, then walking to the pier about an hour before sunset. It’s our little tradition and it never disappoints.
Let me know below if you’ve ever been to California and what your favorite city is?
Enjoy your weekend loves!
