Abbot Kinney: LA's Coolest Neighbourhood?

After convincing myself that Spring had sprung, and then despairing for days on end about the horrendous British weather we've had of late, I decided enough was enough. I contacted LA blogger, Tommy Lei of My Belonging and asked him to show me the very best that Spring had to offer on the sunny side of the street in Los Angeles.

According to My Belonging, the 'it' hangout in LA is Abbot Kinney. Described by GQ as "the coolest block in America", it's not hard to see why the cafes, boutiques architecture attract so many to the area.

Here is a sneak peak of Tommy's beautiful shoot at Abbot Kinney. View the rest of the shoot and read the full post, in which he takes us on a personal tour of the neighbourhood (and his gorgeous outfit) on my fashion blog, The Leake, here.
