Got the Wardrobe Blues? Here are 5 Pieces to Spice Up It Up

It happens to all of us. We walk into our closet and think to ourselves, how is it possible I have all these beautiful pieces and nothing to wear!? If you’re feeling a little unenthused by your current wardrobe, we get it, and we have a solution! Sometimes, all it takes to inspire a new love for your clothes is a special piece that can add a little spice to your look. This week, we’ve picked out five pieces that will do just that. Keep scrolling, it’s time to fall back in love with your wardrobe. IMG_8200

The Statement Pant
You already have the rest of this outfit in your closet. All you need now is a pair of pants that simultaneously go with everything while still standing out and bringing that smile to your face. That’s the statement printed pant. Featuring: NEW Giada Forte Autumn Leaf Print Pant 
Paired with: New Isabel Marant Sweatshirt, Ampersand as Apostrophe Tote, and Beek Slides

statement shoeThe Statement Shoe 
We love shoes, we can’t get enough of shoes, shoes were our first true love. But… sometimes we get tired of the shoes we have in our closet. If that happens, it’s time to jazz up your look with a statement shoe. Simple in design with something spectacular about them (metallics, anyone?), these shoes will be a go-to look for you to pair with a variety of outfits. Get ready for a slew of compliments to come your way. Featuring: Robert Clergerie Silver Yvan Oxford
Paired with: Nili Lotan Cami, NEW Raquel Allegra Silk Blazer, Adaptation Hi Rise Wide Crop

Statement Blouse

The Statement Oversized Piece
The oversized pant or the oversized blouse, also known as the definition of comfy. Wear them together like we did here, or pair with whatever catches your eye in you wardrobe. Featured: New Giada Forte Printed Shirt & the New Raquel Allegra Gray Pant. 
Paired with Ancient Greek Sandals

statement skirtThe Statement Skirt 
What makes a statement skirt? A simple cut, a casual vibe that can be dressed up or down, and either a stand out fabric or a stand out print. We’re going for the standout fabric. Who doesn’t love a bright silver skirt? The best thing about the statement skirt is that you can easily pair it with an easy t-shirt and sandals. Featured: NEW Isabel Marant Delphina Skirt
Paired with: Nili Lotan Baseball Tee and K Jacques Snake Delta Sandal

Feeling a little more inspired? Come by the store and find your statement piece to make getting dressed fun!

Memorial Day Weekend is Here! What to Wear

It’s hard to believe but we are already at Memorial Day weekend! If you’re like us and are constantly caught off guard by the rapid pace of time, we’ve got your Memorial Day style covered. Still haven’t planned what to wear? Check out a few of our favorite Memorial Day looks for the long weekend.

Memorial Day Weekend Weather

The weather looks like it will be partly cloudy with highs in the high 60s. Sounds like paradise to us locals.

Memorial Day Style

Simply Sweet
One of our favorite looks for a Memorial Day celebration is the classic simple summer dress. This Ulla Johnson dress is stunning, comfortable, and perfect for a backyard BBQ. As the temperatures cools down into the evening, pair with your favorite white or blue denim jacket. Bonus, this dress has pockets!
Wearing: Ulla Johnson Citra Dress | Beek Seabird Sandal

Memorial Day Style

Love of Layers
What’s more fun than layering? Layering may seem like a little bit of a challenge, but to us, it’s just another opportunity to wear as much of our favorite pieces as possible. This versatile jacket is a great summer snag. It is light and can be tossed over your spring and summer wardrobe with ease and style. Add a little extra to any casual outfit with subtle sparkle and some killer accessories.
Wearing: The Great Sergeant Jacket | Tee Lab Layering Tank | Tee Lab Pink Skirt | Ancient Greek Metallic Sandals | Peanut Wood Ring

Memorial Day Style

Summertime Sunshine
We know that “partly cloudy” means not quite warm enough to get away without a jacket all day. But we also know that Memorial Day is the official kick off to summer. So we’re dressing the part. Laid back and ready for sunshine, we’re loving these jean shorts paired with an easy top, and the Yosuzi bag and hat.
Wearing: R13 Denim Shorts | Veronica Beard Silk Tank | Ancient Greek Black Slide Sandals | Jewels By Piper Bone Necklace | Yosuzi Hat | Yosuzi Kasha Bag

Memorial Day Style

Classic Cool
They say you’re not supposed to wear white before Memorial Day. We don’t really agree with that (who doesn’t love their winter whites?!), but we’re willing to play along. It’s officially time to rock that white denim all summer long. Pair with a cute clutch and patterned top to add a little extra something to your style.
Wearing: Nili Lotan Cleo Blouse | *NEW* 6397 Shorty Jean | Robert Clergerie Slide |
*NEW* Jerome Dreyfuss Clutch

Inspired? Come by the store today or this weekend to check out all our options for your long weekend celebrations! We’ll be open all weekend!

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!

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.

Too Good To Wait for Spring New Arrivals

The seasons in Seattle always seem so far behind fashion. How can we be thinking about Spring already when we haven’t even made it through the Holiday season? These new arrivals are just too good to wait on though. Fun spring new arrivals can add color to your winter wardrobe and with some clever layering, are perfect for Seattle-not-so-cold winters. We’re not ones to skip past the holidays though! We love holiday parties, so we’ve designed a look from our new arrivals that will stun at any holiday event you have coming up.

Holiday Va Va Voom! 
Pair the new Nili Lotan Slip Dress with the Vanessa Seward Velvet Blazer for a look that is everything you want in holiday this year.

Kickin’ It Casual for Girl’s Night Cocktails 
What to wear, what to wear? Pull off this comfy casual look with a fun above the knee slit in the Isabel Marant Belina Skirt.

Add booties or pair with new Golden Goose sneakers.

Isabel Marant Floyd Jacket Color Me Raspberry 
Does this Isabel Marant Floyd jacket remind anyone else of Chambord? (Who else adds it to their holiday cocktails?) Paired with these unique and so cute Isabel Marant Corliff Jean and the Golden Goose Slide Sneakers, we’re ready for some shopping gift shopping.

Nili Lotan Nadeen Sweater

Baby, It’s Cold Outside 
Toss on this light pink Nili Lotan Nadeen Sweater with your Boyfriend Jeans and you’re ready whether you really must go.. or stay… maybe just a half a drink more. Paired with the Golden Goose Velvet May, ’tis the season!

Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, or Hanging Out, We’ve Got you Covered

Anyone else ready to push pause on this year? How can we be just two weeks away from Thanksgiving already? Since we can’t actually pause time, we’ll pull out the eggnog and dive headfirst into the holiday season. If you haven’t had a moment to think about what you’re going to be wearing for the upcoming Thanksgiving festivities, we have you covered, no matter if you’re attending a Friendsgiving, a formal Thanksgiving, just lounging on the couch, or doing all three.

FRIENDSGIVING
Friendsgiving, made popular during the Recession and Friends, has since morphed into an annual celebration for friends to get together and have a fun Thanksgiving celebration before, or in lieu of, visiting their families. If you’re headed to a Friendsgiving this year, we’ve got the perfect casual and cute outfit for you to wear.

Friendsgiving Style at La Ree Boutique

Wearing: Amo Babe Tee and Twist Jean, Isabel Marant Delwood Sweater, and Clergerie Jacnec Boot

SOCIAL THANKSGIVING 
If you’re headed to a more formal Thanksgiving celebration, you’ll want to be comfortable and chic. Up your style game, with a jacket over your comfy tee shirt, and dark denim. Add cute heeled boot and a statement necklace for a that extra pizzazz.
Social Thanksgiving Wearing: 6397 Boy Tee, Vanessa Seward Velvet Jacket, Nili Lotan Alek Jean and Pedro Garcia Engel Bootie

CASUAL THANKSGIVING
If your Thanksgiving crew is more casually inclined (and, hey, why not? You’re going to be eating all day), then layer a cozy sweater over your favorite pair of jeans, toss on your sneakers, and accessorize with an early glass of wine.
Casual Thanksgiving Wearing: Joseph Chunky Cardigan, 3×1 Fray Skinny Denim, and Golden Goose Superstars 

DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING
If you’re headed out for Black Friday shopping or spending the day on the couch with family watching football, give yourself a break and forgo the jeans. Instead, plan an outfit that is comfy and stylish by pairing a cute pair of loose pants with a cozy sweater. Standing outside in cold lines? Bundle up with a cute beanie.
Day After Thanksgiving StyleWearing: Nili Lotan Elise Sweater, Raquel Allegra Easy Pant, Veronica Beard Paxton Beanie and Golden Goose Slide Sneakers

Whatever your plans for Thanksgiving, we want to wish you the very best time!
La Ree store will be closed on Thanksgiving day but back open for the rest of Black Friday weekend!

Celebrate the Fourth of July in Style

We are just under a week away from another great Fourth of July celebration in Seattle!

Since Seattle is so far north, our summer days have more hours of sunlight and our Fourth of July celebrations are extra long as we wait for the sun to go down far enough to watch fireworks against a dark starry sky. In Seattle, the Fourth of July is considered the official start. We’ve been patient, and from here on out, the weather should be high seventies without a cloud in the sky. Sounds like a reason to celebrate, to me.

To get ready for our long evening of celebrating, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite red, white, and blue Fourth of July BBQ-ready outfits. Plus, if you’re planning to take a long weekend to celebrate, you may want to look at packing a few extra looks to start the partying in style early. We’ve got you covered for Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and, of course, the Fourth of July!

We’ve all heard the “joke” that Seattle summers start on the July 5th, but this year, the forecast is looking sunny with no rain! Let’s keep our fingers crossed it stays positive and sunny throughout the weekend.

So, here’s to good weather, good company, good food, and lots of fireworks. It’s time to kick off the Seattle summer with an incredible Fourth of July extra long weekend!

See something you love? Stop by the store, call us, or check out online. We’re here to help.

Happy Fourth of July!
