My friend and I went to the Santa Monica Pier to take some photos and catch up. Despite the Southern California temperatures cooling down, and the holiday season starting, the foot traffic has refused to let up on the West Coast. We've been having an unusually warm summer/fall this year so it doesn't surprise me that people are still coming in hordes. I can't really talk though. I'm only a local because I've been here for five years from my Ohio move, but I'm still starting to get that grumpy "go home" mentality when the tourism doesn't drop off. Well either way, I got this skirt hanging in my closet and it was pretty much the perfect piece to get illuminated by all the pier lights!
