A Simple Stylish Dress From One Of My Favourite Brands

A second entry into the blog this year is one of my favourite brands Havren. You may remember the other stylish dress that I shared by them on here a while back? That proved to be very popular and that dress actually is now on sale and I’m leaving a link to it below for you.

The stylish red Nancy tunic dress

However, this dress is completely different from the last. The Nancy tunic dress is free-flowing and simple. Not restrictive in any way, so it’s perfect for wearing on a hot day. I love the simple design of this dress, not a lot needs to be added to it. The dress does all the talking!



The only fitting is at the tops of the arms and the bust area. It’s a real juicy red colour With little cap sleeves, perfect for covering the shoulders from burning on my shopping trip in Malta.


The Havren collection is available online and also stocked in House Of Fraser. I’m very surprised that I don’t see it much in the media, and I don’t think this brand gets the attention it deserves. I have loved every item I’ve received from Havren and the quality is really good for the price. This dress is retailing at a mere  £39.00. So this is very affordable.

There are a couple of pleats either side of the neckline to add interest. The body of the dress is floaty and the material is stretchy.  Great for those blowout meals, this dress hides all the sins!

Red And Tan



I chose to pair the dress with my Tan Accessorize shopper and my bargain find Tan wedges from Zara. I debated on whether this would work well together colour wise but I quite like it. What do you think? Other more bling accessories could be added to turn this dress into evening wear. Easy peasy!



I just had to add this blooper pic so you can see the volume of the dress and that gorgeous blue sky!

I have four of the six items below. I have my eye on the white lace dress! And bottom right is the Lexi fluted sleeve dress that I have in red. You can see it in the red at this post here.

  10. June 26, 2018 / 12:35 pm

    That red suits you so well. I see you are getting a lot of wear from those wedges. They must be very comfortable. I really need a blooper dress like that, if it comes with those legs Laurie.

    These are the best kinds of dresses for the really hot weather. At least it doesn’t stick to you and become uncomfortable when you start perspiring!!!
    That color is so lovely on you Laurie!!

  12. June 25, 2018 / 4:08 pm

    I just love red! Lovely dress on you Laurie, the red is such a great color on you too. I love dresses in the summer, so easy and I love clothes that dont cling during those hot days. Great looking sandals too!
    You know I love Zara .
    Have a wonderful week!

    Could have done with this dress at work today as it was such a scorcher and it’s really tricky to find loose but smart things to wear. I’m going to click the link to get one. Thanks so much for the review. I’ve just started to follow you on Twitter and love that gingham swimsuit you were in recently too. Lovely. #lgrtstumble

      • July 23, 2018 / 7:13 pm

        I’ve popped back to say thankyou! This dress has become a real favourite in this heat and everyone has complimented me on it! It’s so easy to wash; just wash and hang. No need to iron. And off we go again. Brilliant!

  14. June 25, 2018 / 2:15 pm

    So beautiful outfit! Like the red V-neck short sleeve dress and the way you style it with a tote bag and wedge sandals.

  15. June 25, 2018 / 11:45 am

    You are right: a loose fit dress is really good for hot summer days !
    Red is a vitaminic colour and it suits you very well…beautiful photos, you look wonderful!!

  16. June 25, 2018 / 10:40 am

    Such a gorgeous colour! I love dresses like these, Laurie. They’re so super comfy to wear aren’t they? You look stunning!

    I agree with Jacqui – i wouldn’t call that shot a blooper! Love this dress, the color and the swing, and what a friendly price too. thanks for linking up, xo

    Oh I LOVE this dress and I absolutely love it with the tan, I think it works great. this is the sort of dress I love on holiday when you are wandering around the sights. It is not tight or restrictive, covers up the bits I want covered but still looks lovely to go into a restaurant. Love it! I will pop over to their site for a look. Thanks for sharing x

  19. June 24, 2018 / 4:14 pm

    Oh Laurie, I love this dress! I have been searching for the perfect red dress for so long and while I have accumulated a few during that process, I still have not obtained the perfect one. This one looks like it would fit the bill nicely. I love the flowiness of it and the length is exactly what I would want in a casual dress look. And of course, I always go for a vee neck as it is much more flattering on me than any other neckline. Really superb dress and it looks gorgeous with the tan accessories! Thanks so much for joining my #SpreadTheKindness link up!

    This dress is such a beauty! I love the loose shape of it, perfect for dinner nights! I’ve never heard of this brand. As you mentioned rightly it deserves more publicity. πŸ’žπŸ˜˜πŸ’–

  25. June 22, 2018 / 7:01 am
