Style with Riva | Culottes, I Like You Lots

We celebrated Father's Day in Napa. If you haven't been in Napa, you should definitely go. An hour and a half away from San Francisco, Napa has lots of beautiful places, quaint shops, wineries, and nice warm weather. Expect it in the 80s. So that means flowy sundresses, shorts, hats, and shades on.  

I've collaborated with Ruti and came up with this outfit. Just a bit of a background about Ruti, Ruti Zisser, a Tel Aviv native, moved to the states only to find she missed her favorite fashion brands. Deciding to depart her tech career in Silicon Valley and follow her dreams of fashion, she opened the first Ruti store in Palo Alto's Town & Country. More locations in San Francisco, Santa Monica, Berkeley and Venice soon followed. Ruti both designs & curates unique, ready-to-wear clothes + accessories which creates a chic and modern collection. Inspired by her Israeli roots, Ruti clothes make the customer feel authentic, confident and strong and is great for women of all ages. 

Have you worn culottes? Can I just say that they are definitely one of the greatest inventions in the world of fashion. It is not a skirt but pants but they look like a skirt. If you know me and my style, I'm always about comfort and I kinda gear towards basic and very minimal. 

I paired up these culottes with a nice cute flowy dark salmon blouse. It's loose on the arms, so it's really airy. I can see myself wearing this a lot this summer. And of course Napa, you need a hat, a cute pair of strappy sandals and a small crossbody purse. I find this outfit perfect if you want to go casual, loungey but stylish. Since the culottes are black, you can rock it with a nice crop top and stiletto heels and you're set for a party. I honestly can't wait for the denim ones, cuz my goodness they're just super comfy!

We went to Redd Wood for lunch on Washington St, and oh my gosh, this place is beautiful. With a touch of Italian style, I had to take photos there. Napa you have my heart. <3

Talk soon!
