Fall Favorites: Staff Picks

Over the last couple weeks, we’ve been previewing a few themed fall fashions that are going to be big trends this year. This week, we want to not only show off some new arrivals, but to let our readers in on which of these fall trends are our favorites. Keep reading to find out which trends you’ll find us wearing this year, then stop by the store to pick out your fall faves.

Fall Trend: Bold Leopard

Kayla’s Fall Fave: Bold Leopard + Casual Chic 
Kayla’s favorite is all about making a bold statement layered over a casual look. She takes the casual up a notch with a pair of sleek sling backs that will show off her style, even after she ditches the coat indoors.
Wearing: N21 Red Leopard Jacket, R13 Denim White Tee, Amo Denim High Rise Stix Denim, and Clergerie Kyra Heels

Fall Fashion

Patty’s Fall Fave: Always In  
Patty’s Fave is about looking great throughout time. This classic look transitions easily from casual Friday at the office to dinner with the girls.
Wearing: Sarah Alexandra Signature Shirt, R13 Denim Alison Skinny Jeans, Clergerie Keyla Boots, and a Jerome Dreyfuss Bag

fall fashion favorites

Rachael’s Fall Fave: Pop of Color
Rachael’s fall fave look is a mixture of coziness (dont’ we all crave that in the fall?) and pizzazz. The look really pops when you notice her shoes. A unique shape and color, they make the outfit, while not being so bold as to take away from the leopard sweater.
Wearing: NEW R13 Cashmere Leopard Hoodie, R13 Denim MILF Jean, and the NEW Isabel Marant Lieas Boots

Never Basic Fall Fashion

Jen’s Fall Fave: Never Basic Flannel 
Walking down the a Seattle street in the fall means you’re going to see a lot of flannel. That doesn’t mean your flannel looks have to be anything other than totally you and totally stylish. Pair your fave flannel with your fave jeans and fave GGs and you’ll be anything but basic.
Wearing: R13 Flannel, Amo Denim Loverboy Jeans, Golden Goose Superstar Sneaks

Ready to get cozy in your new fall favorites? Come by the store and check out all our new arrivals! See you soon.

 

Summer Style: Where are you going? What will you wear?

Summer planning is well underway. We’ve started planning our trips, camps, and activities of all sorts for the summer. But, have we spent any time thinking about what we will wear? Okay, we admit it, we have thought about it, a lot. And we’re excited to show you our staff picks for 2018 summer style!

GIRLS GARDEN PARTY 
Patty is headed out to a garden party with the girls. Filled with casual elegance, she wants a look that will be comfortable and chic with a pop of color to show off her personality. Accessorizing with a hat is a classic for the occasion and is perfect for an afternoon in the sun.
Wearing: Ulla Johnson Bardot Dress, Pink Ancient Greek Sandals, Yosuzi Hat

Sunday Farmers Market Style

SUNDAY FARMERS MARKET 
Kameryn is planning to spend her weekends at the local farmers market. Armed with her woven bucket bag and flats, she is ready for a morning of walking, tasting fresh fruit, and filling her arms with beautiful flowers. Cropped jeans are perfect for the cool mornings as the weather warms up throughout the day. Early lunch at the food trunk? Yes, please.
Wearing: Giada Forte Cotton Tank, Amo Babe Jean, Yosuzi Mila Hat and Bag, and ATP Atelier Rosa Sandal

Hawaii Summer Vaca Style

HAWAII FAMILY VACATION
Rachael and the fam are headed out to Hawaii for a summer family vacation. Clothes that are easy to pack, comfortable to wear, and still look stunning are essential for a tropical vacation. Pairing your look with fun summery accessories brings the Hawaiian vibe to a dress that can be worn all summer long.
Wearing: Michel Klein Baba Dress, Yosuzi Dita Clutch, and the Ancient Greek Alkimini Sandal 

Playing with Baby Style

DAY OFF WITH BABY
Kalya knows that some of the best days are the ones spent hanging out at home with the family. Slow walks around the neighborhood, running around at the park, and long naps at home with Baby Rae are summer paradise. These days call for a casual look that is versatile and easy.
Wearing: T-Lab Raglan Off Shoulder Sweatshirt, Adaptation Wide Leg Crop Denim, Beek Lovebird Slide, and Ampersand Sideways Tote

Bike Ride the Brewery Summer Style

BIKE RIDE TO THE BREWERY
Is there anything that says summer in Seattle more than a easy bike ride to a brewery? Jen doesn’t think so. Biking to the brewery the ideal combination of exercise, sunshine, and ice cold refreshment. No matter if you’re into hops, reds, blondes, or porters, there’s nothing better than a beer (and a burger, maybe?) in the sunshine after a long bike ride. Who’s coming?
Wearing: Veronica Beard Ines Denim, Tee Lab by Frank and Eileen Knit Button Up Top layered over a White Tank Top, and Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Superstars 

No matter if you’ve planned an exotic vacation this summer or you’re planning on staying home and enjoying the beautiful Seattle sunshine, dressing for summer is half the fun. Celebrate the return of the sun with a new wardrobe or at least a new outfit! We’re here to help you find the perfect look for your summer style.

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!

Marla Aaron Phyllis LockMarla Aaron Phyllis Lock with 24” Rose Gold Rolo Chain

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).

R13 Trucker Jacket

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! 

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

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!

Personally, we stop checking the weather reports around this time of year. Excepting for a few excitements over potential snowfall, it will be basically the same until spring rolls back around. The good news is, we get to finally dive headfirst into our favorite fall fashions. From surrounding ourselves in soft cashmere, to buttoning up a fun new jacket, to piling on cozy scarves and hats, there is something beautifully delicious about the fall season (and it’s not just the pumpkin spice latte).
