When was the last time you shopped at Macy’s?

If you are anything like me it has been YEARS since you stepped foot in your local Macy’s store.

Why? I outgrew the brands they carried, everything was constantly on sale and a mess, the outdated floor plan with the awful inefficient incandescent lighting and t he overwhelming crowds in San Francisco’s Union Square scared me away in my mid-twenties.

Until now. Yep, over the past four weeks, I have placed at least one Macy’s order almost every week. Why? I always shop around for the best deals when I shop online and Macy’s has proven to have the best deals online for one very specific brand – Free People. That’s right ladies stock up on ALL your Free People needs at macys.com.

All three of the Free People pieces featured are over 30% off right now. There is almost ALWAYS a sale happening at Macy’s and ALMOST everything from the Free People collection is included. And these a good Free People pieces. Pieces that are full price at Nordstrom and Shopbop. These are pieces that have managed to become staples in my wardrobe over a short period of time.

Now before I sell you the online shopping dream at Macy’s I need to make one very important point clear. The online shopping experience is less than ideal. The site is outdated (like the stores) and your order arrives in a sloppy Macy’s plastic bag maybe with tissue- but what’s in the package is pure magic and all that really matters. So go for it, fulfill all your Free People shopping dreams at Macy’s.

[update] almost all my favorite Free People styles are an extra 20% off this weekend with the code: SUPER

Get Your Dress Tape + Nipple Covers Ready – The Backstage Pleated Dress

The Backstage Pleated Dress

I fell in love with this stunning dress the moment I saw it on Kathleen Barnes’ Instagram and the $45 price tag made it a very quick addition to my wardrobe. Yep, this stunner was just $45 (and comes in a two of other colors here and here if pink isn’t your thing). I hadn’t placed an order with Nasty Gal in years and I saw this as an opportunity to give the old brand a shot and filled my cart with everything my heart desired, delightfully at 50% off.

Now, this dress was stunning on Kathleen Barnes and most likely designed for the not so busty lady – something I should have considered before I checked out. But oh-well I loved it and was determined to make it work. Thankfully I included a set of nipple covers in my Nasty Gal order (a must with this dress) which helped with the first part of my busty issue, but the dress has zero support for the girls and is quite flowy on top. So in order to keep this dress safe for the public, I had to tape it down and keep the girls in check. This double-sided, medical-grade tape ensures a no-slip fit and prevents any wardrobe malfunctions when wearing daring, more revealing styles – insert the backstage pleated dress. The tape is $16 and will save you for the rest of your life! #TrustMe

It’s here! It’s here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here!

And unless you’ve been living under a rock and far far away from social media…

You are well aware of the fact that every fashion blogger will be letting you know that you have until August 5th to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Yes, this sale happens every year and in my opinion, the sale just keeps on getting better. So with that in mind, I decided to break down the best pieces and styling suggestions from the sale for all my San Franciscans.


When can you shop?

Early Access (with a Nordstrom card): July 12-July 18

Public Event: July 20-August 5

The best way to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale San Francisco style:

  • Take advantage of the buy now and pick up in store feature. It is a major lifesaver and honestly the only way I ever shop at Nordstrom. Find it, Love it, Get it – FAST!
  • Stock up on what we really need in San Francisco. The Anniversary sale is the best time of the year to stock up on cardigan sweaters, jeans, basic layering tanks, tees, and boots – AKA the basic San Francisco wardrobe.
  • Shopping for you man? If he lives in the Marina – hook him up with all The North Face and Patagonia!
  • Looking to drive and park? Stonestown is your only option in the city. Looking to really go for a drive? My two favorite spots to shop outside of the city are Corte Madera and Palo Alto.

#Collection wines by Gia Coppola – A Getaway to Francis Ford Coppola Winery

#Collection wines by Gia Coppola, Coppola Wine, Francis Ford Coppola, Wine Country, Wine Country Style, KatWalkSF, Kat Ensign, Travel Blogger, Travel With Me, Express Jeans, Express Duster, M. Gemi Wedges

A weekend getaway to Sonoma during the summer is easily one of my favorite activities – especially when it involves attending an event at a winery with a pool! The Francis Ford Coppola Winery is located in Geyserville, Ca (about ten minutes from downtown Healdsburg) and an absolute must if you are heading to Sonoma during the summer.

This past Friday I attended a pool party at Coppola Winery to celebrate the launch of #Collection by Gia Coppola. The nighttime soiree featured a silent disco with tunes by Myles Hendrik, carnival food and 80s arcade games. The #Collection by Gia Coppola was inspired Gia and her creative personality. This new style of wine—one that’s light, unpretentious, and made for the hashtag generation was flowing all night long (I am fairly certain I had ALL the rosé).

This look is from our drive up from San Francisco to Sonoma. I kept it comfy for the drive (just about two hours), yet chic with the addition of the hat and basket bag. I just snagged these jeans from Express and I could not be more pleased with the fit. I have been looking for comfortable, mid-rise white jeans for months and little did I know the brand that I hadn’t shopped at since high school would be the source of my new favorite jeans!
