HIGHLAND PARK, CALIFORNIA

Hi friends!

I’ve really been loving posting about my little trips around LA, so I’m sharing another post with you about some cute shops Lara and I visited this weekend in Highland Park! We went to Highland Park with the sole mission of visiting Shorthand, my favorite beautifully curated stationery shop.

Shorthand carries tons of my favorite stationery brands like Appointed, Midori, and Mr. Boddington as well as a huge selection of pens and greeting cards, some of which are handmade right there in the store!

Right next to Shorthand is Crush, a super cute stationery and gift store.

I mean… just look at that wallpaper! We crossed the street and ventured into Dotter, a cute boutique with tons of precious kids clothing and toys in the back!

We popped into a Vanessa Mooney pop-up sample sale and of course I had to grab a pic of Miss Venus.

Lara grabbed an iced vanilla latte with macadamia milk at Highland Cafe & loved it.

Overall, the day was super successful! We walked up and down both sides of the York Boulevard and popped into tons of cute places. One of my favorites (I didn’t get any pictures) was MindfulNest. It’s a great gift shop with locally sourced products!

Definitely recommend swinging by one of the many coffee shops and bars while you’re there!
