How to be Secretly Super Comfy and Still Look Chic

We’ve all heard it and likely we’ve repeated it to ourselves. It has been a fortifying mantra after a long night of standing in cute shoes, a motivation to get to the gym, a source of that knowing nod from a stranger at our newly waxed eyebrows. It goes: “Beauty is pain.” But we have a secret, beauty doesn’t have to be painful! This week, we’re giving ourselves a break and pulling out our favorite looks that are not only chic and fashionable, but are also incredibly comfy.

6397 Swig Blazer

6397 Swig Blazer | The Great Tee Shirt | 6397 Shorty Jean | Robert Clergerie Slides 
Rachael’s favorite 6397 Shorty Jean is both cute and comfy and her only and favorite way to wear a blazer is menswear style. A touch of sparkle transforms your casual look into one with edge and purpose. Marla Aaron chain detail below!

R13-cashmere sweater with distress

The Great Hoodie | Raquel Allegra Muscle Tee | R13 Denim Boy Skinny in Jasper |
Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Flag Sneakers 

Cutie in a hoodie. Sometimes the most chic looks are those that are super easy to pull together. Take this classic casual look up a notch by adding your Golden Goose sneakers and your favorite everyday necklace.

New Nili Lotan salvora blazer

NEW Nili Lotan Salvora Blazer | R13 Denim “Strange Love” Tee Shirt | 6397 Pull On Trouser | K Jacques Zenobie Lep Sandal | Hitchcock Madrona Chain Necklace
Patty loves these pull on trousers by 6397. They look like a Monday and feel like a Sunday. Causally pair with a blazer layered over a tee shirt to give off an air of chic confidence. Throw on your favorite pair of flats and add a necklace to complete the look.

Cashmere Distressed Sweater

R13 Cashmere Sweater with Distress | R13 Field Pant | Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Mid Horsy Sneaker in Leopard | Marla Arron Star & Gold Chain
Kayla’s got the subtle chic down. This isn’t your average sweatshirt, this is a cashmere distressed sweater that feels like a luxury no matter where you’re wearing it. Pair with your go-to R13 sweats and your latest pair of Golden Goose Sneakers. Adding a Marla Aaron necklace hints at your depth of fashion savvy. Toss on the R13 Denim Trucker Jacket and head out the door (details on the jacket below).

It’s March, which means we are either deep into our New Year’s Resolutions or we’ve accepted that next year might actually be the year to leap into action. That’s fine, remember, they say beauty is pain, but what’s really beautiful is what’s on the inside. Give yourself the self-care you deserve and treat yourself to a secretly super comfy look. You deserve it!

COMING UP: New arrivals! Stay tuned to Instagram and Facebook for the latest looks available in store! 

A Spring State of Mind

You may have woken up to a dusting of snow on your lawn this morning, or heard that Western Washington was colder than Alaska’s arctic coast on Tuesday, and you’re probably more than a little jealous of the record-breaking 78 degree weather in NYC this week. We’re right there with you. Still, with this cold weather, we have to admit we’ve loved the sunshine! All this sunny weather paired with new spring arrivals in store has us in a spring state of mind.

This week, we’ve picked out just four of the many spring dresses we currently have in store at La Ree. If you’re prepping for wedding season, summer, or a late spring vacation, come by and get yourself out of the cold and into a sunny spring state of mind!

Quick Trip to NYC: Kameryn and Rachael’s Essentials List

Rachael and Kameryn are headed out to the Big Apple for New York Fashion Week. One of retail’s most exciting times of year—and the busiest—means long days filled with appointments, walking, and shopping for the next great looks to bring home to La Ree Boutique.

For such a fast trip, no one wants to spend extra time checking bags or waiting for them after the long flight. Instead, pack efficiently, choosing items that mix and match together to create different looks each day. Plus, traveling with someone else means swapping clothes to put together even more options!

Rachael and Kameryn picked out items now available at La Ree that are perfect for a quick trip to NYC.

Quick Trip to NYC - Kams Packing List

Kameryn’s NYC Essentials Packing List
During the Day: R13 Denim Trucker Jacket and Biker Boy Jean, Jerome Dreyfuss Serge Bag, Golden Goose Leopard Slide and Isabel Marant Rica Belt.
For Lounging: R13 Field Sweat Pants and Frank and Eileen Tee Lab Muscle Tank
Mix and Match: Pair the Frank and Eileen Tee Lab Tank with the R13 Biker Boy Jean and layer with the Trucker Jacket.

Quick Trip to NYC - Rachaels Packing List

Rachael’s NYC Essentials Packing List
During the Day: Raquel Allegra Reversible Duster, R13 Denim Double Hem and Isabel Marant Dyna Boot. The Jerome Dreyfuss Felix is the perfect size to tote everything you need.
For Lounging: Nili Lotan Cashmere Janina Pant and R13 Denim Shredded Sweater
Mix and Match: R13 Denim Shredded Sweater and the Double Hem Jeans both layer perfectly under the Raquel Allegra Duster (it’s reversible, adding even more options!).

Even when packing light, carefully selected pieces can create a variety of looks throughout the trip! Rachael and Kameryn like to share clothes, to build even more options for each of them.

Your Last-Minute Guide to New Year’s Eve Style

Ten… Nine… Eight… Seven… Six… Five… Four… Three… Two… One… Happy New Year!

Do you know what you will be wearing when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve? If you’re still scrambling for the perfect outfit to watch the ball drop in NYC (on the TV, of course) or what you’ll be rocking while dancing the night away, we have you covered for your last minute New Year’s Eve style. What better way to ring in the new year than by looking fabulous?

Nili Lotan Cami Dress

Belt It…
Just not some cheesy karaoke. Instead, snag this killer Nili Lotan Cami dress for a great go-to for layering throughout the year. Belted with the Isabel Marant Deakin belt makes this look rockin’. Pair with the Jerome Drefuss Bob and Han Leather Jacket and the Robert Clergerie Bisuoto Boot (both on sale, btw) for a look that will give you just the right amount of layers for a Seattle NYE.

Raquel Allegra Silk TankBlack out…
All the negative that happened in 2017. The new year is here filled with new opportunities and fresh beginnings. Here’s to successful resolutions and a year brimming with possibilities. But first, we celebrate the end of a year. It’s a long party so let’s be stylish and comfy, pair the Raquel Allegra Silk tank and Coulotte Pant for a look that is as chic as a romper, but way easier to manage. With easy slip on Isabel Marant Poween heels and a touch of sparkle in the Marla Aaron lock, and you’re ready for dancing well beyond midnight!

Raquel Allegra Silk Sister

Count down…
The number of ways you can wear this dress! We had to throw it in twice, because it is such a great option to dress up or down. Wearing (again) the Nili Lotan Cami dress under the Raquel Allegra Silk Sister cardigan, paired with the Jerome Dreyfuss Remi bag and the Isabel Marant Garret boot (on sale!).

R13 Boy straight Denim

Tear up… 
The dance floor. You’ve got the moves and the style to show 2018 what you’re made of. Rocking these frayed R13 Boy Straight Denim is a perfect contrast to your Silk Raquel Allegra tank. Toss on the Jewels By Piper Lariat necklace and grab the statement Jerome Dreyfuss Disco Bob bag, and you can take on anything, no matter what 2018 throws your way.

If you’re still recovering from the holidays and are planning to stay home and watch TV from the comfort of your couch, we get it. Cozy up with a good blanket, your favorite loungewear, and a special dessert. You can still make the night extra special with a new item by Xirena. Come by and see what little something we can hook you up with to make NYE a night to remember. 😉

Happy New Year, everyone!

New Year’s Eve: 10am – 4pm

Rocking Around the Christmas Tree with Holiday Style

Christmas is 3 days away but we’re still trying to plan our outfit. If figuring out what you’re going to wear is still on your list, no need to check it twice, we’ve picked out a few of our holiday style looks for the next few day’s celebrations!

Christmas Eve DinnerChristmas Eve Dinner
Do you get to open one present the night before Christmas? Give yourself something special a little early and deck yourself in this comfy casual look that is perfect for a Christmas Eve celebration. The metallic sheen of the Vanessa Seward Albert Lurex top is the perfect balance between celebration and everyday wear.
Wearing: Vanessa Seward Albert Lurex Top, Amp Twist Jean, and Isabel Marant Garret Boot 

Holiday Brunch Style at La ReeChristmas Brunch Style
You’ve been up for hours already, if you went to bed at all. Presents have been wrapped and unwrapped. Now it is time to celebrate with friends over eggs, french toast, pancakes, or any other Christmas-y brunch-y food traditions. Throw on this look, and erase that Christmas morning crazy.
Wearing: Alc Stone Coat, 6397 Grey Tee, R13 Biker Boy Jean, Isabel Marant Dyna Boot, and Hithcock Madrona Chains

Christmas Day Party Style

Christmas Day Dinner Party Style 
The Christmas day dinner party is a chic affair at the end of a long day. You can pull off a stunning look, be secretly super comfortable, and be ready in almost no time at all. Pull your hair up into a bun for chic style without the hassle, toss on this pleated black Pomandere dress (it’s 70% off right now, by the way), and stay warm in the Nili Lotan jacket. A few sparkles with Marla Aaron locks and you’re ready to go!
Wearing: Pomandere Dress, Nili Lotan Garbo Jacket, Isabel Marant Poween Heels, and Marla Aaron Necklace and Earrings. 

Day After Christmas Back to Work

December 26 Back to Work Style
Diving back into work the day after Christmas can be brutal, but looking incredible doesn’t have to be. We’ve got your outfit for the 26th already planned for you. The classic white blouse with leather pant look is always a great go-to. Kick it up a notch with these leopard print kicks by Veronica Beard.
Wearing: Vanessa Seward Elinor Blouse, 3×1 Leather Bell Crop Pants, Veronica Beard Leopard Boot, and Ampersand as Apostrophe Pouch.
