Havren Fit And Flare Dresses – A Must Have Dress That Switches Easily From Work To Play

Havren has to be one of my favourite labels that I discovered this year……

You may remember when I sported that gorgeous sequined jumper earlier in the year here 

Today I’m sharing with you this gorgeous fit and flare dress called Delilah  which is such an easy dress to wear, and gives a very flattering shape. I love the deep rich wine coloured flowers laying on a base of black, but with hints of white that brings the dress to life.

I have chosen to wear a plain long sleeved rollneck to wear underneath. A bit of a copy really because this is how it’s worn on the website, and I thought it looked really good.

But how easy will it be to turn this from a day to night dress ? Or even wear to the office? A smart shirt underneath would be perfect, and loose the top underneath put on some sparklies ( I’m thinking a large statement necklace to sit in that V-shaped neckline ) and some evening shoes, you’re good to go partying or a dinner!

I decided to showcase beauty of a dress at Chiswick park today. I have teamed the outfit with classic black court shoes and added a little glam with my Bronze coloured clutch. It’s so beautiful here in the park and eerily quiet. In summer, this park is heaving with walkers, and it’s strange to feel like I have the park nearly to myself.

I love how the dress flares from the waist, the large pleating detail sits beautifly. There is a jacket on the website that pairs up with the dress here which has just gone into sale, so grab a bargain ladies !
That jacket will go with so much!

How beautiful are all the autumn colours?

I just managed to get this shot outside of Chiswick house. Then it started to pour down ! I was hoping to show you more but I got a proper soaking!

Please do take a look at the Havren site. There are some beautiful items on there for the party season, and it’s so nice to find something a little different. The dress is available in blue too as seen below

I look forward to hearing what you think of the dress, I love to recieve a comment and here from you. Or if yo wish you can subscribe to get every post sent to your inbox

    I really love the cut of the dress. The skirt lays so nicely and it's very flattering. I love the pattern and can see it go from the office to dinner quite easily. A statement necklace would look great in the v-neck of the dress.

    • November 30, 2016 / 9:13 pm

      Thank you Nikki. A statement necklace will look fab in the summer I agree x

    My, my, my, Delilah, you truly are a temptress of a dress ๐Ÿ™‚ I can see how this could be worn in a myriad of ways, Laurie, and I love it. Love love love.

    On the blog today, I'm talking about the hush-hush topic of self-love. Yup. Me, myself and I. I'd love for you to come over and weigh in, and share your thoughts. It's interesting to note that despite it being the 21st century, and we're preaching confidence and empowerment, the subject still remains somewhat risque.

    Nice look, Laurie, and it brightens up what became a rainy day. Great choice of location, though, but just how did you manage to walk on that grass in those lovely heels? Did you get wedged in?!

    • November 20, 2016 / 7:53 am

      Ha ha! Thank you Mary ! I was waiting for that question! A great deal of balance I have to say! I'm used to it though, I only ever wear heels because I am short. Been wearing them since I was thirteen, so Iv'e had a lot of practice. x

  22. November 17, 2016 / 8:36 am

    Havren dresses are a bit of an undiscovered gem – very flattering. Love the berry shades on you. The backdrop is stunning!

    • November 20, 2016 / 7:50 am

      Thank you Gail. They are a bit of a hidden gem I agree. And their sales are fantastic. It's really good quality too x

  23. November 17, 2016 / 8:10 am

    The dress is gorgeous and I do like the sound of the office version styling with a white shirt. I haven't heard of the brand but just looked at the jacket online. A bargain in the sale.

    • November 19, 2016 / 9:42 pm

      Isn't it Anna. It's really good quality clothing too. I have loved everything from the brand so far x

    • November 19, 2016 / 9:40 pm

      Thank you Michelle. I agree with you, the shape is great for most figures x

  24. November 16, 2016 / 12:18 pm

    What a beautiful dress! So very elegant and feminine! And those shoes are stylish! Also love that park. England has got many beautiful parks and gardens!

    • November 19, 2016 / 9:36 pm

      Thank you Nancy! I really should make use of more of the gorgeous parks in London I have to say x

    • November 19, 2016 / 9:35 pm

      Yes I agree. It will look great with white silk I think . Thank you x

  25. November 16, 2016 / 9:25 am

      Thank you Jacqui. I am loving the Wine colours out there at the moment x

  28. November 15, 2016 / 7:36 pm

    I really like how you've added the shirt under this dress Laurie (even if it is copying)…it makes me perfectly winterized! I hadn't heard of this company, but I'll be checking them out now!
    The scenery you picked is quite gorgeous—sorry for the rain though! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • November 19, 2016 / 9:18 pm

      Thank you Jodie. The colour match is perfect.x

  29. November 15, 2016 / 1:42 pm

    Beautiful dress! I love it paired with the burgundy top. I can see the dress worn so many different ways!

    And what a gorgeous setting for your photos! Chiswick park is beautiful!
