Summer to Fall: How to Wear Fall Fashion Now

We’re just getting warmed up for our Seattle summer. Nearing the end of our first month of real summer weather, we have almost two more full months of sunny weather to come, but now that we’re finally out of our dreary gray haze, the stores are filling up with fall fashion. We’re not ready for fall weather! But, we also LOVE fall fashion. So, this week, we feature fall fashion available now at La Ree Boutique that can be styled for summer. Plus, it will transition perfectly into fall… when the time comes.

Summer to Fall Transition

Summer Layers
If you’re from Seattle, you know how quickly the temperature drops once the sun goes down. Pair a jacket with your light tee for summer fun all evening long.

Pump it Up
Summer is about pops of color. But if neutrals are more your go-to, add a muted pop of color that will last you all fall with a subtle colored heel.

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!

Happy Fourth of July!

Here Comes the Sun: Summer Style Must-Haves

You know what they say, summer in Seattle doesn’t really start until July 5th. Honestly, we’re hoping for a start to summer sooner than that if for no other reason than that we have so many adorable outfits we are dying to wear. But mostly because summer in Seattle is one of the best in the country. According to a recent study, Seattle has some of the best beach weather in the country (even if for just a few months). For those few beautiful months, we have mild to high heat, low humidity, and cool evenings. And we’re surrounded by water, everywhere, from the Sound to Lake Washington to Lake Sammamish. Plus, the water is cool and perfect for swimming or boating. Have you noticed how many delicious ice cream places we have? Molly Moons, Blue Bird, Full Tilt, just to name a few. The best part? It doesn’t rain in the summer.

Summer in Seattle is something to be celebrated. We’re preparing for the sunny weather ahead by picking out a few of our favorite summer looks for 2017. Come by and find your summer looks in store, or don’t brave the weather and check out our great summer styles online.

Layers for Days (and Nights!) with Tee Lab by Frank & Eileen

Summer is finally here! But before we go rushing out into the sunshine with no jacket, we have to remember that it still is getting pretty cool in the evenings. That’s why we love Tee Lab by Frank & Eileen! Their layers are perfect to keep you feeling cute and comfortable throughout the day, from 60 degree mornings to 80 degree afternoons to 50 degree nights. Pair with your favorite Golden Goose sneakers or sandals by K Jacques or Ancient Greek and you can dress up or down your Tee Lab layers.

We have to be honest, we’ve fallen in love with Tee Lab at La Ree. We love the versatility, the comfort, the unique cuts of skirts and dresses, and the way we can mix and match our pieces to create a new look every time.

We’ve chosen a few of our favorite pieces currently available now at La Ree. Come by to mix and match a few of your favorites!

Bright Summer Whites

Can we first just say how happy we are that we don’t have to follow these “no whites before Memorial Day. No whites after Labor Day” rules any more? Winter whites have been a welcome addition to our dark grey, green, brown, black winter wardrobes. We are more than happy to extend white’s season beyond the sunniest of summer days. Still, white is a classic summer color. It could be called THE color of summer. How can we separate white from memories of beaches, big floppy hats, mimosas in the sunshine, and lots of seafood? It’s always part of our ideal summer picture.

In celebration of all things summer, we’re getting out our sunglasses and cocktails a little early this year and picking out our favorite summer whites.

Ready for Summer Vacay!

The sun has been shining these last few days, Friday is Cinco de Mayo, and as it gets closer to the end of the school year, we’re feeling that summer vacay itch! Only adding to our impatience to get out and celebrate the warm weather are all the cute summer dresses and light summer pants we have in store right now.

Summer in Seattle is no doubt the best time of year to be here (shhh, don’t tell!). If you’re spending your summer walking on the newly updated Seattle waterfront, on a boat in Lake Washington, or ferrying across the sound to a cute island getaway, the beauty of the season is undeniable. And a big part of enjoying the season is the opportunity to get out your sandals, your sunglasses, and your favorite summer looks. If you’re like us, you’ll need new ones every year to celebrate the return of the sun!

Sometimes, getting outside isn’t quite enough. You need to get out of the city, out of the country. If you’re jetting off to somewhere tropical and sunny for your summer vacay, you’ll want to stock up on comfortable, easy-to-pack, outfits that will keep you cool and stylish throughout your travels.

We’ve picked out a few of our favorite summer dresses and light summer pants that are perfect for a day on the lake or a week out of the country. Available in store and online now!
