Havren – A neutral Gem Of A Dress On Sale!

Hi Everyone

I hope you all had a lovely weekend? what’s happened to our weather? Anyone else feels like jetting off to warmer climates?

I’m sharing this dress with you today from Havren. You may remember That I showcased this brand last year. A sister company to the fabulous Nougat brand and I will leave you with the links to those posts here and here Both the Havren and Nougat dresses are still available.

The Erin Taupe Tie dress is such a delight to wear. Light as a feather and non-creasing. The material is very fluid and I love the neutral colour

I like how the dress pulls together with the self-tie belt in an envelope shape. A nice little detail.

You can pair any colour with a neutral dress. you could add literally any colour you like, just add your different accessories of your choice. Black, Red, White, Navy or orange went through my mind, but I decided to go with natures colours of Rusts and Browns. 

The other bonus I’m sure you will be happy about is the price. Havren have their Summer sale on at the moment, and this dress is less than £40 Bargain! In fact, Havren have a lot of dresses at this price so shoot over there straight after!

These are my favourite shades to wear. What do you think of my colour pairing? What colour would you choose? 

I’ve kept this silk scarf handy. because our Uk weather has taken such a nose dive. It’s really windy and I’m down by the Thames on way for a meet with friends. Perfect to wrap around the shoulders. It should have been an umbrella in my hand because I got a proper soaking on the way back to the car!

Let’s cross our fingers that our summer hasn’t come to an abrupt end. We will be back in our coats before we know it! 
Don’t forget to check out the sale! Have a great week everyone

      Thank you, Mary! I am actually wearing a nearly seamless bra/body. I wrote about it a while back and it’s called the Shapeez Bra. It’s absolutely amazing. I’m leaving a link to the post for you below. It’s a bit pricey but worth every penny. Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit and I hope you find the link to the post helpful xx

    Love the tie waist and that it doesn't seem to wrinkle. Great piece for travel! It's been so fun learning about some of these UK brands that I haven't been familiar with. Thanks for joining the Friendship Friday link-up this week!

    You always wear neutrals so well Laurie. I absolutely love this taupe sheath on you, it is a classic. It is so chic with your beautiful python pumps and that wrap scarf. As far as the weather, our Summer has sort of been non-existent unfortunately, so I feel you. I hope we have warm temperatures all the way through the end of September!

    • August 5, 2017 / 11:17 pm

      Thank you Ada. I thought your weather would have been boiling hot! Thank you for your kind comments xx

  24. August 1, 2017 / 11:44 am

    You have bought the perfect dress for your silhouette! The colour is the quintessence of style and elegance…and both the shoes and bag go happily with it!

    • August 5, 2017 / 11:14 pm

      Thank you Dan. Such kind words from a lady of good style xx

  25. August 1, 2017 / 9:22 am

    It's a gorgeous dress, Laurie! I do love the taupe colour – I'm a big fan of nature's colours, as you describe them. Green is my absolute favourite though!
    You look beautiful. Shame about the weather. It's glorious over here in the Algarve 😉

      Thank you, and yes this could easily turn from day to night xx

  27. August 1, 2017 / 1:59 am

    You look fabulous! I love that taupe color and I really like the "envelope" tucks at the sides. It makes the dress very flattering. I love how you added the rusts and brown and totally agree, it could go with so many pretty colors and pieces. Great look, Laurie. – Amy

  28. July 31, 2017 / 11:04 pm

    Absolutely love the color/style of that dress! I'm loving those shoes too!

  29. July 31, 2017 / 8:34 pm

    You look fabulous, Laurie! I love all that pin tucking going on, making it a very special dress indeed, definitely worth checking out that website if this dress is anything to go by. Hope you had a nice time with friends.

  31. July 31, 2017 / 2:55 pm

    I love the color, it is very subdued yet super attractive with your coloring! I am also obsessed with the shoes…prob more so because i don't think I am confident enough to wear such a huggy dress!

    • August 4, 2017 / 7:56 pm

      Thank you so much for stopping by for a read and leaving a comment. I think this would look good on any size, so long as it's not too tight. That's the trick. I'm glad you like the heels though! I hope you stop by again xx

  32. July 31, 2017 / 11:43 am

    That dress is absolutely stunning. It fits you like a glove and the material looks very comfortable.

    • August 4, 2017 / 7:51 pm

      Thank you Amy. It is really comfortable and non- creasy which is a bonus! xx
