We strolled down Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice Beach a few weeks ago and saw this dreamy house with beautiful painted front door and wild, vibrant flower covering the fence.
This is why we love Abbot Kinney- every step there is a picture-perfect vignette. Not to mention the endless cool shops and yummy restaurants that we wish we had a bigger stomach to try them all.
Here are some spots you must check out if you go to Abbot Kinney:
Tortoise General Store - We feel instantly transferred from LA to Japan the moment we stepped int Tortoise General Store. We appreciate all Japanese made home goods such as this Kalita Copper Drip Kettle.
Aesop - New to Abbot Kinney neighborhood. We were first introduced to Aesop many years ago when we visited abroad. We love the plant-based beauty products of this Austrian born brand, and always wish they come to West Coast. Now that they are here, you will have to go experience it yourself!
TOMS - Everyone loves these comfortable shoes with good cause. TOMS opened its flagship store on Abbot Kinney recently. Now you can try on new shoes while sipping yummy soy latte. Not to mention its dog-friendly backyard. We can see ourselves hanging out there all day :).
