Style with Riva | Feeling Peachy

This is probably the most productive week I have this summer. Back to back shoots, it's definitely peachy. 

My color palette pretty much consists of neutral colors. I normally wear a lot of white, grey, brown and black. Blue or denim is pretty much my only primary color. I mentioned earlier that a pop of color like red is usually my go to. But lately, I've been feeling more adventurous and adding peach, salmon, or blush (i refuse to call it pink haha) in my wardrobe. Just you know, pink is my least favorite color. I do love pink peonies, roses and daisies. I just least prefer that color. But lately it's growing on me. Finding the right shade to suit my skin color is key.


you need to 

try this



One Sunday, Kev and I were driving in the Sunset as per usual, we went to Home Cafe in Noriega to plan for our Euro trip. I freakin' love their condensed milk toast. You guys have to try it. It reminds me so much of my childhood. 

If you've been to Sunset or Richmond District, you'd see a lot of pastel colored houses. Thought of using one as a backdrop for this timely outfit. I got this peach top on sale from Madewell for 29 bucks in Portland. I couldn't resist the no sales tax, I just couldn't. I love the tied sleeves too, I think it's pretty cute. What do you think?

I paired this with my Levi's skinnies and brown suede block sandals from Zara. These are probably the only sandals I could wear for a day. To make things peachier, I wore these huge earrings (also just for being extra (Is that how people use that word these days?)) and my Rayban sunglasses. They're prescription too! These are totally a splurge but thank God for medical reimbursement! You've already seen my tote from Madewell which is my everyday bag as well as that red scarf. 

Do you guys like to explore and be adventurous with your wardrobe options? I definitely recommend to have more of the stuff that truly works but here's to trying out a new thing! Maybe next time, you'll see me in yellow. Not. :P Is there something that you guys have been wanting to try on yourself? Here's some other peachy stuff that are currently on sale right now. 

Loretta stripe, Portside Skirt, Double Zip Bomber Jacket, Blouson Dress and Crewneck Sweater (you know SF)

Style with Riva | Four-Dollar Shirt

Hey, thanks for coming back! Welcome! 

In case you don't know, I also work full-time at a tech company in Downtown SF. I still do freelance photography alongside. I just have to manage my schedule well. So please inquire if interested! Living in the Bay Area definitely comes with a hefty price, friends. It's no joke.

My workplace is pretty much casual, you can rock whatever style you want as long as it's appropriate of course. Since becoming full-time, I found myself wearing more athleisure and laid-back clothes, constantly hunting for super comfortable shoes (got me some Ultra Boosts aka pillow shoes! In the search for sandals, pls send recs!), and even buying and always looking for good deals on clothes online. I describe my style as comfort, minimal, neutral and casual. I like stocking up on the basics: lots of tees, good quality denim and shoes. Five days of the week, I'm basically Basic and pretty much on Sundays I get to play dress up. If you work at a place where you're on your feet all day long, then I can totally relate with you. So if you're like me whose closet is a capsule wardrobe, high five girl! I am finally going to utilize this blog as my platform to share how to look put together with your basics, maybe suggest some current good deals, and if this still is not your cup of tea, maybe you can still enjoy photos of San Francisco.

I told you I'm going to be blogging. :)



I bought this shirt at H&M for 4 bucks. No kidding. I don't really own a lot of slogan shirts but when I saw this for 4 bucks I just couldn't pass it up. That's literally a grande latte. So win! And it was just so fitting to wear this cuz I was also on a 7 day work streak. I wore this last Monday, you know Motivational Monday, and it was my 5 of 7. So go Riva! 

I paired this with my Madewell overhauls which I got on sale for really cheap and my Stan Smiths which are my footwear of choice most of the week. White goes well with anything. My feet have a high arch and with these guys on for 5 hrs is good. But for the whole day, inserts or cushion pads for my heel for extra support are definitely needed. 

Since this is a simple outfit, I put on my red scarf from F21. I'm loving red as an accessory! Especially with the lips and nails. Definitely my go to for a pop of color.  



My friend, Felicia (she also took some of these photos!) and I stumbled across this super cute alleyway in FiDi after we had coffee. It's on Belden St. Isn't it so cute?! 

I couldn't find this shirt anymore even online but here's some slogan shirts that are inexpensive that you can rock when you need some motivation.

You Go Girl

Hope you enjoyed this post, here's to me surviving this week! Hope yours is better.
