Fancy Abbot Kinney

Time heals all, and heels hurt to walk in.
But they go with the clutch that you carry your lip gloss in.
— Fancy, Thank Me Later Album by Drake

Oh heyyyyy Abbot Kinney Boulevard! Named after the developer and conservationist who founded Venice Beach of LA, Abbot Kinney is perhaps one of the liveliest and trendiest streets of Los Angeles. An epicenter of laid back California beach vibe but with a more upscale twist than its slightly grittier sister Venice Beach Boardwalk, Abbot Kinney is one of my favorite spots for Summer dining and shopping. Imagine Nordstroms, but with individual boutiques for every brand. Restaurants such as the Bucher's Daughter and Neighbor and yummy Intelligentsia Coffee and Portland's Salt & Straw added with recreation lining in every inch of the boulevard, there’s enough to keep you entertained from sun up to sun down. 

A fresh and dainty lace dress from City Chic was my outfit of choice for a small shopping stroll down Abbot Kinney. The nude bodice under gorgeous lace is what adds the fancy to this little white dress. This dress was perfect for LA's heat and paired with a pop of color of some statement earrings added some Summer flair. This City Chic dress is well constructed to closely fit curves so order your true size. Catch me in this easy but fancy number in Abbot Kinney with an Intelligentsia cold brew in hand and a Salt & Straw's local featured flavor of the day this Summer!
