An Abbot Kinney State of Mind

There was no school Wednesday because of Veterans Day, so Camilla, Emmett and I went to Venice Beach to hang and shoot photos. Camilla is working on her portfolio for school and hanging out on Abbot Kinney is always fun and inspiring. Lots of great shops, Gallery's, and coffee houses. One of my favorite places is Abbot's Habit to grab a coffee and people watch.

Valerie is wearing a vintage full slip as a dress with a stripped tee and cardigan by J Crew over top and belted with a vintage belt. Leather Jacket from Alpine Stars and booties by Jeffery Campbell.
All the necklaces by Energy Muse.
Camilla is wearing H&M Jacket and skirt, Striped romper worn as a top only is Rapscallion by Samantha Pleet, Shoes booties Urban Outfitters. 
It was a wonderful day full fun and love and inspiration abound hope you enjoy a walk down Abbot Kinney.
XO Valerie and Camilla

I loved Abbot Kinney when I last visited Venice! I must go back to Cali again. I'm definitely more of a laid back West Coast gal.

Love that ruffeld skirt and the braid. great you've worn it with a leather jacket so it doesn't look too cute.

You've both got great style! Love the photos with the graffiti - I'm fascinated by street art.
