Giveaway #2: Dôen

It’s no secret that Dôen has become one of my favorite, most worn brands in my wardrobe—see some recent looks here, here and here. I can’t explain it other than every time I put on one of their pieces I feel like the best version of myself. Each dress, blouse and knit I own fits flawlessly into my California lifestyle, in an elevated way, while not being too precious for any kind of fun with Elin. I’m obsessed with the shapes, prints and overall vibe that the sister-founders Katherine and Margaret Kleveland have created. I always joke, I could literally live in all things Dôen.

I’m so excited to share today’s giveaway with Dôen, a $500 gift card to one lucky reader. Here’s how you can enter. Follow both @couldihavethat and @shopdoen on instagram, leave a comment on this blog post including your favorite Dôen piece. Open to readers worldwide, ends 5/15. Good Luck!
Be sure to give the Dôen Journal a read, it’s chocked full of inspiring mamas wearing the collection and sharing a slice of their world. I love reading about the amazing women, but also seeing the collection in a different light—translation I end up finding a new style I didn’t know I loved/needed so much. I was incredibly flattered when me and Elin were included recently, read the full story here.

I feel alive in my Doen.

  51. Hi!
    I LOVE the Faye Dress. I couldn’t agree more with how their clothes make you feel like the best version of yourself. I have two young daughters (and so appreciate that a lot of their pieces are nursing-friendly), and there is something about their clothes that just captures my dream come true of raising daughters in California in a natural way. Thank you for featuring such a wonderful company for this giveaway!

  52. I love the pom pom lulu sweater. It is definitely sweeter than most of my clothes, but I think it would pair nicely with my tomboy wardrobe.

  53. So hard to choose a favorite, but I would have to say the SORELL dress. The color, the cut, and the flowy lines are perfect and would be amazing all year round. I wouldn’t mind looking like the model either! 🙂

  54. Hi! My favorite piece from Doen would be the Wildeve Dress. I love how it was designed after the 1910’s bodice silhouettes.

    The Provencal dress for summer days and beach vacations.
    The Ardarsha dress for a last minute social events where you want to be comfortable,, but wearing something special and different. (You have completely sold this dress in this post, I wouldn’t have gravitated to it on my own but now I feel like I must have it!)

    Thank you for offering this incredible giveaway! So happy to have learned about this brand 🙂

  56. I have been eyeing all of the dreamy Doen dresses coming out this Spring! I am due with twins in about a month, and plan to buy the Basil dress as a treat for myself post babies. 🙂 🙂 xo

  57. You are one of the very few bloggers that I take the time to follow : you sense of aesthetics and style correspond 100% to mine, your pictures are amazing and quotes always relevant. It’s my daily little heaven and delight. Thanks

  59. Hi Samantha, my favs are the black remy top, le marche dress and the white paix dress (of course)! I haven’t pulled the trigger and bought any pieces yet but I love that their mission supports women and local production yay!

  60. Everytime you wear a Doen piece, I’m left with stars in my eyes and then scroll to see where it’s from and never surprised with I see “Doen”. Their designs really do fit you and your style to a T, equal parts effortless and artistic. My favorite piece in the shop right now is the Faye dress, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything more perfect (which probably explains why it’s almost sold out haha), but the Paix dress is a close second. I can’t say not to a white dress or top in the Summer.

  61. LOVE Doen! I’ve had my eye on the Taos dress and the Lulu Sweater. And that adorable Tuku sweater for the kiddo!
