Outfit of the Day: Santa Monica Pier!

Hey everyone! I had a free evening last night so I decided to do something I've been meaning to do ever since I got to LA: take photos at the Santa Monica Pier! I managed to get some good photos and even filmed a vlog of the little outing, which you can see on my YouTube vlog channel.


I decided I would do an Outfit of the Day since I had already pulled out all of my camera equipment. My outfit was casual and comfortable with an oversized white shirt (Nordstrom), dark green shorts (H&M), and brown strappy wedge heels (Nordstrom). I accessorized with a simple long gold leaf necklace from Express... one of my favorite pieces of jewelry lately.



These shoes are probably my favorite pair at the moment. I bought them last week at the Nordstrom on the Third Street Prominade, and coincidentally they were marked down by almost 50% due to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Score! The heel isn't extremely high and because they are wedges, they are super comfortable to walk in. The brand is Boutique 9, in case you are wondering.


As for makeup, I'm wearing:
-MAC Style Snob, Satin Taupe, and Naked Lunch eyeshadows
-MAC Fleur Power blush (amazing!)
-MAC Prrr lipglass


Off to the pier! Here is the entrance:

They have a wooden walkway through the sand... how cool is that?
