Why I Started Shopping at Abercrombie & Fitch Again

Abercrombie & Fitch, Sherpa Half-Zip Pullover


Sherpa Half Zip Pullover


Yes, you read the title of this post correctly! I am a proud Abercrombie & Fitch customer and card-carrying member of the A&F Club (their free rewards program). Gone are the days of the overwhelming smell of Fierce the moment you enter an Abercrombie store and the shirtless models on the shopping bags.

Abercrombie has seriously had an adult makeover and my current wardrobe is filled with the brand. From sherpa everything to the perfect puffer my closet is filled with Abercrombie like it’s 2004. Everything is (almost) always on sale and the quality is pretty darn fantastic.

Now you won’t necessarily find an Abercrombie in your mall anymore their online store is my JAM and the source of countless sales, promotions and free shipping when you spend over $75.

Are you willing to give Abercrombie & Fitch a chance again?

The Perfect Weekender From Sole Society

Sole Society Mason Weekend Bag, Weekender, The Perfect Weekender, Travel, Travel Blogger, OOTD, KatWalkSF, Kat Ensign, Kathleen Ensign, Travel Blogger, Travel With Me, Girls Who Travel

I spend a ton of time prepping and packing for travel…but almost always end up overpacking – especially when I am going on a road trip. Why do I always end up throwing in an extra reusable tote filled with random crap right before we drive away? I am usually only going away for a night or two and have managed to throw everything from my apartment into my tiny mini cooper -leaving zero room for me or Benji!

While I’d like to report that those days are completely over…

They are almost over thanks to the perfect weekender in these photos. There are so many things that I love about this $79 bag from my friends over at Sole Society I decided to dedicate an entire blog post to it!

Why I Love the Mason Weekend Bag from Sole Society:

  • The price! How is the magical bag only $79?
  • The bottom shoe compartment. This is a MAJOR game changer. I’ve managed to fit one pair of boots and two pairs of flats into the shoe compartment. This is a MAJOR space saver and one of the key benefits to this bag!
  • The top handles and removable crossbody strap make it so easy to carry (it won’t break your back).
  • It’s faux leather and wears really nicely. I’ve taken this weekender on many trips and it still looks brand new.
  • The lining! I will update this post with a photo of the inside, but the lining is leopard and very on trend for fall!
  • The color options. It comes in three classic colors at Nordstrom and seven more adventurous colors on the Sole Society site.
  • The size and shape of the bag! The top compartment is perfectly shaped. I can throw my cosmetic bag, hair products and clothes all into it and everything is facing up and stays in place thanks to the shape of the bag. I’ve also folded up my tote purse and used this bag as a carryon on an airplane no problem!

Pattern Play: Leopard + Spots For Fall

Leopard + Spots: not necessarily your first thoughts when thinking fall fashion… 

But this fun pattern play works…right?

The leopard comes courtesy of the J.Crew original No. 2 pencil skirt. This classic silhouette is back, with a waistband that sits lower on your waist and a flattering fall appropriate knee length. Leopard print is having a serious moment for fall and this simple pencil skirt is a worthy investment. Not ready to splurge? J. Crew Factory has a very similar skirt for a quarter of the price here.

Now the spots come from an ASOS coat from last winter that is still in stock! This coat was a hit last fashion week. This lightweight coat is perfect for chilly fall mornings and has easily worked its way into my wardrobe year-round – thanks to San Francisco’s year-round fall like weather.

What do you think of this pattern play? Was it a hit or a miss?

Raise your hand if you sleep in an old t-shirt and boxer shorts from your ex?

If you just raised your hand you are me and you should keep reading this blog post. If you did not raise your hand you can keep reading, but you probably don’t need my fancy pajama lifestyle tips and tricks.

So if you are like me you sleep in whatever you can get your paws on before you hit the sack. I used to be the girl who sometimes slept with her makeup on and almost always slept in a random t-shirt and ratty old shorts from my college boyfriend. Well now at the ripe old age of 32 things have changed my sleepytime routine over here. I ALWAYS wash my face. I’m talking facewash (not just wipes) and after that, I have a nighttime facial routine. Yep, I’ve got lotions and potions just for nighttime…but that’s another blog post. Today we are talking about that fancy pajama lifestyle.

Now introducing a fancy pajama lifestyle into your nighttime routine does NOT have to be expensive. I’ve managed to round-up five affordable options that can instantly up your pajama game. I own them, I wear them and I love them!

That Kimono Lifestyle

I’m HERE for a kimono, especially when both of these kimonos come from local San Francisco shop Kim + Ono. Snag my exact kimono here. Wear it around the house, wear it as a bathing suit coverup or wear it with a tank and jeans.

A Matching Satin Set

Because nothing says fancy like a top and shorts that match! Yes, these shorts are from Abercrombie and YES I know that I am 32. I’m wearing a medium on top, a large on bottom and holding onto that coffee for dear life.

The Sexy Short Robe

The best $58 I’ve spent in a long time. This little number from Topshop instantly ups your loungewear game. This short, flirty satin robe patterned in smart stripes is easy to pack and even easier to wear.

The Tie-Front Button Up of MY DREAMS

The Abercrombie shorts make another appearance this time with this super soft top. I’m not sure if this top is even considered to be a pajama top – I just know that I slept in it last night, I’m still wearing it and I really really like it,

Travel: Easy Travel Looks For The Girl On The Go

Easy Travel Looks For The Girl On The Go

Are you the last person on the airplane always looking like the hot mess express?

That was literally ALWAYS me. Sliding into the gate like it was home plate, spilling my coffee everywhere and looking like I just rolled out of bed. Well, my friends, at the ripe old age of 32 I have (almost) figured it all out. Gone are the days of glamourous travel, but with just a little bit of effort and punctuality you can look fab and arrive at your destination in comfort and style.

So I present to you three of my favorite easy travel looks:

Easy Travel Looks, KatWalkSF, Kat Ensign, White Luggage, Comfy Pants, Dad Sneakers, Goyard, Goyard Duffle, Girlfriend Collective, Sunglasses, Kat Ensign, Kathleen Ensign, Travel Blogger, Travel With Me, Girls Who Travel

Look #1 – I got a blowout and I’m not afraid to show it off.

Starting your travels with a fresh blowout is rule number of looking like a travel pro even though you just want to be comfortable and have no idea what you are doing. I almost always do my best to schedule a blowout the day of or night before I travel. Good hair goes a long way and there is nothing worse than landing at your destination knowing that you have to unpack all your hair care products and wash your hair.

Top: RE/DONE (c/o), Cropped Boxy T-shirt

Leggings: Girlfriend Collective (c/o), Black Compressive High-Rise Legging

Shoes: Public Desire (c/o), Cheetah Chunky Trainers

Sunglasses: Le Specs, The Prince Sunglasses

Bags: Goyard + Gabbinao (c/o), Avila Collection 3-Piece Hardside Upright Spinner Set

American Eagle, AERIE, Gucci Sneakers, Sole Society, Sole Society Weekender, Kat Ensign, Kathleen Ensign, Traveler, Travel Blogger, Easy Travel Look, Real Travel Look

Look #2 – A matching sweatsuit goes a long way.

This sweatsuit is not pricey and instantly makes you look like you know what you are doing when it comes to travel. A matching set elevates your look (even if they are just oversized rust colored joggers) and matching luggage takes that look to the next level.

Sweatshirt: Aerie, Hometown Sweatshirt

Joggers: Aerie, Destroyed City Jogger

Sneakers: Gucci, Rhyton Leather Sneakers

Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Large Original 62mm Aviator

Weekender: Sole Society (c/o), Mason Weekend Bag

Luggage: Gabbiano (c/o), Avila Collection 3-Piece Hardside Upright Spinner Set

Easy Travel Looks, KatWalkSF, Kat Ensign, White Luggage, Comfy Pants, Dad Sneakers, Goyard, Goyard Duffle, Girlfriend Collective, Sunglasses, Kat Ensign, Kathleen Ensign, Travel Blogger, Travel With Me, Girls Who Travel

Look #3 – Head-to-Toe Black = Chic

When in doubt, keep it simple and chic in head-to-toe black. These are also great pieces to have in your travel wardrobe. I have been living in these black leggings from Girlfriend Collective. These extra high-rise leggings with four-way stretch are basically everything you need to get through your favorite high-impact activities, like running, yoga, binge-watching housewives and travel.

Sweatshirt: H&M, Relaxed-fit Sweatshirt

Leggings: Girlfriend Collective (c/o), Black Compressive High-Rise Legging

Shoes: Public Desire (c/o), Cheetah Chunky Trainers

Sunglasses: Le Specs, The Prince Sunglasses
