Abbot Kinney Sunset

As mentioned in my previous post, it is still very much summer in some parts of California. It's currently in the 90's here in L.A., so my daily wardrobe right now is still sundresses and light, airy outfits. Can't complain with that too much though, since it allowed me to rock this lovely dress from Lulu's the other day in Abbot Kinney!

This piece is great for a nice, sunset stroll out and about (as featured here), or on a date where you want to look both stylish and flirty. Not only is it made of a delicate material that makes it ethereal and breezy, but it's also decorated with a floral print that, as you can see, is simply gorgeous. Because the dress does so well on its own, I chose to have it be the main focus of my ensemble and go soft and simple with everything else. Nude heels and accessories will literally pair with anything, and are staple items that should be featured in everybody's closets. Additionally, nude heels are perfect for giving the illusion of longer legs (I'm 5'3'', sooo this is a technique I use pretty often) and ultimately polishing off any look. I consider a good pair of nude heels to be a crucial component of my wardrobe, as well as something that will always be in style. 

On a side note - for anybody who hasn't visited Abbot Kinney yet and finds themselves in L.A. at some point, I highly recommend that you go check it out. It's a very cool and urban area full of chic clothing/ lifestyle shops, cafes, art galleries, and much more. I got some gelato at N'ice Cream there and it was probably some of the best gelato I've ever had, so definitely try it out as well if you find yourself in the mood for some. With palm trees lining the road and a location conveniently right near Venice Beach, this place truly encapsulates a cool So-Cal vibe and is overall a lovely place to visit and explore. Hope you can make it over here sometime!
