A few weeks ago, I visited one of my best friends, Emily, in LA. She is an LA girl by heart and knows the best places to eat, workout, shop, and relax in Marina Del Rey, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and beyond. On this particular day, we went to Mendocino Farms in Marina Del Rey for lunch, where I ordered a delicious avocado & quinoa superfood salad (pictured below). We then went shopping in Manhattan Beach, home to SunLife Organics (life-changing), and shopped around. Manhattan Beach has a great Marine Layer (for cozy basics), Seafolly (for top-of-the-line, modern swimwear), Splendid (for simple, classic looks), and William B (Emily’s personal favorite for trendy pieces).
