I love visiting new places, and L.A is just full of so many amazing things to do and see! I teamed up with Lulu*s who outfitted me in perfect L.A ready looks to hit the town, and here I am sharing some of my must see spots. L.A from A-Z

ABBOTT KINNEY- One of the coolest strips in the city (named after the man who built the Venice Canals) it is bustling with shops and eateries (make sure to stop in at The Beach House for amazing swimsuits and delicious ice cream!) this area is fun to wander through, and is close enough from the Venice Boardwalk to take a tour after hitting the beach.

BEVERLY HILLS/RODEO DRIVE- There are shops throughout West Hollywood worth checking out, but if you are going to stop in one area in Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive is it! From Chanel to Gucci to Dior to Fendi, they have literally got everything. Each shop is completely decked out, just walking up and down the street will make your jaw drop.

THE GROVE -The only way shopping can get better is when you can do it outside! When you get hungry after shopping, head across the street to the permanent Farmer's Market, they have tons of delicious options, from taco's to freshly baked pies to candy stations to ice cream stands...pretty much anything you might be craving, they have it!

MALIBU -The perfect "getaway" from the city, Malibu is a definite must on my L.A list. Driving along the Pacific Coast Highway is breathtaking (you can imagine Hank Moody cruising along in his porsche) and it only takes about 25 minutes to get there from Santa Monica. For surfers, some of the best surfing is said to be had at Malibu Pier, and if you are just looking to relax, head to Paradise Cove where you can rent a bed for the afternoon and sip on cocktails all afternoon.

MELROSE AVENUE -A simply beautiful street made even better with some of my favourite shops like Oscar de la Renta and Chloé. Make sure to stop in the Isabel Marant store, if only to walk through the beautiful garden of succulents. Once you've shopped to your hearts content, Fig & Olive is the perfect spot to stop for lunch.

SANTA MONICA- One of the best spots in L.A, Santa Monica is beautiful to visit. There is tons of shopping on Third Street Promenade and Montana Ave, and you can enjoy the view and an ice cream cone at The Santa Monica Pier. If you want to relax book a massage at the beautiful Viceroy Hotel, or stop for breakfast at the FIG Restaurant in the Fairmont Miramar, or stop in for a cocktail in the evening at The Bungalow.

VENICE - One of my favourite areas of L.A, with never ending beach, the Venice Boardwalk, fun shops and food stops and of course, the Venice Canals. A great spot to end your day for a fabulous sunset! Also, make sure to look out for La Isla Bonita Taco Truck, they add caramelized onions to their tacos, and let me tell you, it is addicting!

More coming up from L.A next week, including my project with Revolve! As always, stay tuned ♡
