// photo's by the fashion gal //

last week i met a fabulous girlfriend of mine for a good old cup of joe! we rendezvoused on {one of my favorite streets in Southern California} Abbot Kinney! where the shopping is good... and the coffee is even better!!! since we were having such great weather last week (yesterday it finally rained, yippy!) i opted to wear this high-waisted maxi skirt and paired it with a cozy tank & my favorite structured blazer! oh... and where can you find such a colorful maxi like this??? well, i made it! and YOU can too!!! MAXI-DIY coming soon!

*for more info on this lovely little street {called Abbot Kinney} go here and read away!

maxi skirt: DIY made by me! // white tank: Michael Stars // belt: vintage // jacket: an old fave // sunnies: gifted from Olympic Optics // nude clutch: vintage // silver cuff & silver earrings: vintage // lipstick: MAC (liner: Beet, lipstick: Girl About Town)

first of all, i'm super impressed you made that skirt yourself-i can hardly sew on a button, let alone an entire article of clothing!

also, now i get where the name for the stylemint tee abbott kinney comes from!! (i had no clue).

CupcakesOMG!
