One of my favorite places in LA is Venice Beach. I love the laid back, beachy surfer vibe… I also (not surprisingly) love the shopping and the food. For those two reasons, Abbot Kinney has become a favorite of mine. As you know by now, I’m obsessed with Aviator Nation for comfy cozy vintage-y sweats. (The bf is even more obsessed than I,) so every time we come out here, we make a trip to Venice to load up on hoodies and comfy tees.) Here are a few scenes from this weekend’s venture…
food truck heaven. burgers, tacos, or dim sum… what will it be?
The Dim Sum truck actually has a cheeseburger dumpling. I mean really..
lovely orange sodas, lined up like soldiers.
salted caramel heaven from n’icecream… yum-azing. (the coconut chip was also pretty good)
you can spot the aviator nation shop for miles… those bright colors = instant happiness!
pretty greenery outside a storefront.
