This past weekend, my friend Amanda and I went up to LA to see a Post Malone concert. We decide to make a stay-cation out of the trip, which led us to hanging around Venice pre-Post Malone (see what I did there 😉 ) . We went to Gjelena and ordered a plate gnocchi and a plate meatballs. The meal was simple, but incredibly delicious. Later, we walked around Abbot Kinney and checked out all the street-art and shops Venice has to offer.
I chose to try out the fishnet-jean trend for a grungy-LA look.
Venice is beachy and cool. Abbot Kinney was lined with palm trees and colorful beach houses like the ones seen below.
We popped into Salt & Straw (also on Abbot Kinney) and gawked at their list of flavors: lavender honey, gooey chocolate brownie, citrus creamsicle, almond brittle with chocolate ganache…I ordered the Stumptown Coffee & Compartes Love Nuts. It was heavenly.
Later, we changed and got ready for the concert. I kept the same foundation for my day outfit, but darkened it for the night.
The concert was fun, we even got to the second row. However, we almost got trampled by a crowd surfer who, for some reason, thought we would be the best people to catch him as he jumped…
I’ll post a youtube video of the whole trip later this week!
