A San Francisco Urban Hike with Reebok

First things first what exactly is an urban hike?

Here in San Francisco, I normally define urban hiking as exploring the stairways, hills, and hiking trails of the city. However, Urban Dictionary defines an urban hike as extensive shopping in a city shopping district (aka urban hiking trail) where paths or sidewalks adjoining different stores are open-air rather than enclosed.

I am a huge fan of both definitions of urban hikes, but since I partnered with Reebok via DSW for this post let’s chat about the stairways, hills and hiking trails of San Francisco! We can talk about shopping tomorrow.

Where are my favorite urban hikes in San Francisco?

Full disclosure – I live in North Beach in San Francisco. I’ve lived here for almost ten years and prefer to stay as close to my hood as possible, so all of my urban hikes start in North Beach, involve exploring the trails on this side of town and involve me wearing my Reebok Classics with my small white dog Benji. Why Reebok Classics? They are fashionable and functional and perfect for an urban hike!

I live at the bottom of North Beach close to Pier 39 and Fishermans Wharf. There are a ton of tourists in this area so I only hit Pier 39 or Fishermans Wharf very early morning before the tourists hit the area and it is hard to move at a normal pace! So with that in mind here are my favorite urban hikes in San Francisco:

  • Pier 39 to Fort Mason (very early in the morning) – starting at Pier 39. I always like to head straight to the sea lions, they live on the dock to the left of the main Pier 39 entrance and are LITERALLY the best part of San Francisco. I spend some time quality time with the sea lions then head over to the Alcatraz viewing area and check on the rock. From there I head through the center of Pier 39 and over towards the wharf. The wharf in the morning is a magical place and I love getting a little behind the scenes action of what it takes to make all that clam chowder in a bread bowl happen. The wharf leads to Aquatic Park, Ghirardelli Square, and Fort Mason. I like to enter Fort Mason from the base of Aquatic Park and get my hills in for the day. I can spend some serious time in Fort Mason being one with the woods or I can head straight to Chrissy Field and get in some faux California beach vibes. When I’m ready to give up I head over to Chestnut Steet and grab a coffee or beer and uber my booty back to North Beach.
  • Washington Square Park to AT&T Park – starting in Washington Square Park. My love for Washington Square Park is real. In fact, if you don’t want to go on an urban hike you can just sit in the park and have a grand old time (this is the park where a homeless man gave me Benji). Anywho, if you want to an urban hike, do this: start in the park and head up Filbert Street to Coit Tower. This is uphill so be prepared. Your glutes are going to hurt! Hit Coit Tower and take in views of the city (if it isn’t too foggy) and keep an eye out for the coyotes. Yes, there are coyotes on Coit Tower – so keep your dog close! From Coit Tower head down the Lombard Street steps and down to the Embarcadero. From here you are done with hills and can cruise the Embarcadero for as long as you like. Hit Pier 23 for a beer, explore the Exploratorium, grab a bite at the Ferry Building and finish at AT&T Park. The back half of this urban hike is right along the water and usually fairly sunny for San Francisco standards. And if you make it all the way to AT&T Park you are pretty far from North Beach and it is time to call an uber to get home.

These are just two of my favorite urban hikes, but I plan on keeping this post updated and continuing to share my journey with Reebok and my city by the bay. So check back for a new San Francisco urban hike and shop Reebok at DSW here.

Free People at Macy’s. The Secret to Shopping Free People on Sale.

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.

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

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.

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.
