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!

Graduation Style What To Wear

Graduation Party Style: What to Wear

Congratulations to the class of 2018!! Whether it be high school or college, it’s time to celebrate! If you’re attending a graduation and/or graduation party this summer, we know how proud you are of the recent grad, but we also know there might be something else on your mind… what will you be wearing to the festivities? We want you to find an outfit that you are comfortable in while sitting throughout the graduation, while hugging the recent grad, while jumping up and down trying to get photos, and of course, while celebrating at the grad party. If you’ve been pulling a classic student move and procrastinating, we’ve got you covered. We’ve prepared a few graduation party looks that are now available at La Ree!

Graduation Party Style Pomp and Circumstance Style
It’s okay to admit it, you want to be comfortable while sitting waiting for graduation speeches to end so you can leap up and snap a photo of the grad walking across the stage. And you’re going to be sitting for a while, because you got there early to get a good seat, of course. Long sleeves and paired with a long maxi skirt will keep you warm or cool no matter the weather.
Wearing: Vanessa Seward Florentin Blouse, Isabel Marant Belinda Wrap Skirt, ATP Carmen Heel, Jerome Dreyfuss Popoche Clutch, and the Jewels By Piper Coin Necklace 
Graduation Party StyleDinner Celebration Style 
Headed out to a formal dinner with the grad’s family? You’ll need something that can be dressed up or down depending how formal the dinner will be. Plus, restaurants can be cold! Be sure to choose a dress that can be layered with a nice jacket or sweater. Add some sparkle with gold flats and stunning subtle jewelry.
Wearing: Ulla Johnson Penninah Dress, Marla Aaron Baby Lock Necklace, Marla Aaron Curb Chain Bracelet, Ampersand as Apostrophe Navy X Pouch and the Ancient Greek Metallic Slides. 

Graduation Party styleBackyard Barbecue Style 
What goes better with graduations than barbecues? If you’re attending a backyard graduation party, a fun summer dress paired with wedges (no sinking into the grass!) is the perfect style combo. Barbecues can be hot. Wearing a light and loose dress will ensure that you enjoy every moment of the party. Then, pair with a favorite jean jacket as the sun goes down.
Wearing: Raquel Allegra Check Shirt Dress, Ampersand as Apostrophe Sideways Tote, ATP Lecola Heel

Graduation Style Brunch Celebration Style
If you’re traveling for a grad, you’ll want to get as much time with them as you can. Brunch the day after the graduation is likely in order. This look is perfect for brunch because it is easy to pack, easy to throw on and looks great no matter where brunch is (at home or at a restaurant). Plus, if you’re hopping on a plane right after brunch, switch out the heels for flats, and your’e ready to fly.
Wearing: Giada Forte Silk Dress, Le Kasha Long Cardi, Isabel Marant Snake Heels, Jewels by Piper Diamond Shaker Necklace 

We hope these looks have you covered so you won’t be pulling an all nighter packing the perfect looks. If you’re looking for more pre-graduation prep, come by the store and we’ll be happy to help!

The Sneakers You can Wear With Everything

The Sneakers You Can Wear with Everything

You’ve heard it before…”and they go with everything!” Really? Do they? In this case, these sneakers are so cool, you really can wear them with any look. These are your Sunday to Sunday shoes. We’re talking about Golden Goose Deluxe Brand sneakers. A customer favorite, they danced their way into our hearts long ago. If you’re not familiar, here’s a little background info on the Golden Goose Deluxe Brand:

Golden Goose Deluxe Brand was born in 2000 merging the creative spirit of Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo: two young Venetian designers, outsiders until then to the world of fashion.

Since the beginning, the company has distinguished itself with innovative but artisan spirited products, a low-key communication strategy and a highly selective placement in venues that share the brand’s philosophy.

In 15 years, Golden Goose Deluxe Brand has created a complete lifestyle for its customers, offering a collection that includes ready to wear, accessories and footwear, combining a refined and modern style with a vintage feeling, all supported by the strong Italian sartorial tradition.

Our most recent arrivals are covered in sparkle, spattered with gold hearts that resemble leopard print, or keeping it simple with their classic solids. All of them feature that iconic eye-catching star, and all of them belong in your closet. After all, you can wear them with everything! Check out the outfits below for some style inspiration on how to pair your favorite sneakers with everything in your closet.

Tee Lab Golden Goose Look

Casual and comfy
Sneakers are comfy, this look is comfy, what more could we ask for?
The Golden Goose Gold Heart Super Star paired with the Frank and Eileen Tee Lab Off Shoulder Raglan, Racer Tank and Asymmetrical Short Skirt. Have we mentioned that we love how the heart print on these GGs looks like a leopard print at first glance?

Dress it up in golden goose

Dress It Up 
Spice up your sweetness with the golden goose glitter slide. 
Wearing the Golden Goose Glitter Slides, with Aspesi White Linen Dress and Jerome Dreyfuss Bob Handbag. We love this look for a weekend stroll through the market, a day trip out, brunch with the girls, Friday in the office, summer wedding, basically, we really love this look.

Sporty Chic in Golden Goose

Sporty Chic
Go with a solid color to pair with your sleeker looks.

Wearing the Golden Goose Starland Trainers paired with AMO Denim Babe Jeans, R13 Strange Love Tee and Nili Lotan Salvora Blazer. Maybe a little too casual for casual Friday at the office, but switch up this look with black denim instead, and you’re ready for a day to night look that will carry you right into Happy Hour.

Old School Cool with Golden Goose

Classic Cool 
You’ve probably heard, overalls are back, and we love them. 
Wearing the Golden Goose Leopard Mid Sneakers paired with the AMO Denim Babe Overall and Jerome Dreyfuss Serge Bag. If overalls feel a little young, we say, let out your inner child and rock it, you’ve got cooler kicks than all the kids in the neighborhood, anyway.

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

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.

Favorite New Arrivals

New styles have arrived in store! From new Isabel Marant shoes to new Made on Grand sweaters to new Hitchcock accessories, it’s time to stop by the store to see what we have. Many of these items are so new, they aren’t even online yet! If you see something you love, be sure to come by the store or give us a call.

We picked out a few of our favorite new arrivals to feature this week:
Isabel Marant Garret Boot

We love the new Isabel Marant Garret Boots so much we decided they needed a close up. A little on the edgy side, they are still versatile enough to pair with a variety of looks throughout the summer and into fall.

Isabel Marant West Dress

We paired the Isabel Marant Garret Boots with the new Isabel Marant West Dress and the new Elian Belt. We can see these boots paired easily with denim for a fun look or with business casual pants for a stylish office look.

Made on Grand Swarovski Sweatshirt

New to the store, Made on Grand is quickly becoming a favorite. This sweatshirt is the Swarovski Sweatshirt for the eye-catching Swarovski Bar Appliqué adding a bit of class to your everyday casual look. We’ve styled the sweatshirt with the R13 Denim Kick Fit and Golden Goose Net Slide Sneaker.

Isabel marant Ramsey dress and ferlyn loafer

This little dark navy and black dress can take you from work to weekend without missing a step. The Isabel Marant Ramsey Dress paired with the new Isabel Marant Ferlyn Loafer has adorable detail and, every girl’s favorite, pockets.

Hitchcock Cuffs

We got these Hitchcock Cuffs in store last week and are enjoying them more every day. In fact, we plan on wearing them every day. They match basically any outfit you can think of, and we suggest wearing them even with outfits that you think they don’t match, they’re that cool. Come by the store to try one on, you might never want to take it off.

Isabel Marant Kelia Sweater

The cold shoulder look took off this spring and it will continue throughout the year. The new Isabel Marant Kelia Sweater shows off a sliver of skin creating an intriguing peek-a-boo look . We’ve paired with the R 13 Denim Biker Boy and Robert Clergerie Pasketm Sneaker.

These new arrivals aren’t online yet which means it’s time to stop by the store. See you soon!

 

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

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.

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!).

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!
