Abbot Kinney

Several weeks ago Danielle and I took a trip to Orange County to look at a hotel. On our way back to LAX we usually stop by Fred Segal to see what is happening in fashion, but this time Danielle suggested we check out the shopping on Abbot Kinney in Venice.

We had a great time exploring the stores and we also had time for a wonderful lunch with our good friend Dan at Gielina’s.
One of my favorite stores on this trip was Bountiful. Check out the cake stands in the pictures. I wanted one in every color. Not a store you want to be in during an earthquake, but I think you will see an event inspired by the abundance of cake plates.

We also saw lots of succulents, a trend that continues this spring.

If you have time next time you are in Southern California, stop by Abbott Kinney for the afternoon.
