Memorial Day Style What to Wear

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!

NEW: La Ree Blog Outtakes
We have so much fun preparing these blogs each week and we thought it was about time that we let you in on some of it. Believe it or not, we can’t get these images on the first try, and sometimes the original shots are just plain funny. Let us know what you think!

Summer Style Staff Picks

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.

comfy and chic

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! 

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!

Thanksgiving Style

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!

Shoes We’re Falling For: Must-Have Shoes of the Season

We’ve been gushing about fall fashion for weeks. From the outwear must-haves, to the cozy cashmere, to the plaid and denim, to the scarves, hats, and more, we are true fall fashion fans. Still, there is one key piece of the fall wardrobe that we haven’t given proper attention yet, the shoes! So long sandals, we’re ready for the season of boots and sneakers. There is something simply satisfying about lining up our boots and choosing the perfect pair for our outfit of the day. This week we’re featuring the shoes we’re falling for.
