Outfit | Traffic stopping in Scarlett & Jo*

Hello loves,

I hope you had a good weekend? I had a great weekend. Saturday 7 of my family visited and we all went for lunch to celebrate my dad's and brother's birthdays. Yesterday we went for a lovely walk and took lots of photos for an upcoming blog post.

Something I've wanted to do since I've been blogging is take photos in the the road, like street style bloggers do. I was too afraid of drawing attention to myself before my photo shoot with Jim Hawkins, but the baptism of fire which was being photographed on a busy seafront promenade soon cured me of that!

After James and I had voted recently we took some photos of a new dress which Scarlett & Jo sent me totally out of the blue. I can't tell you how it cheered up my day. 

The 'traffic stopping' part in the title is a play on words, as there was very little traffic about, and it was safe for me to be in the middle of the road. There we are, on-the-road posing ticked off the ol' blogger checklist! :)

This dress would look better with cropped leggings, but I was in a hurry. I'm always in a hurry - I procrastinate for ages then do everything in a rush. Oops.

I also wore this dress before, when James and I met Mookie and her husband Mike in Lewes. We went to a gorgeous park which was full of spring flowers, but we were too busy chatting to realise we had no full length shots of us on our camera. Oops! Mookie and I are both wearing our yellow duster jackets from Asda, but which aren't online any more. I'm not sure if they still have them in store but it's worth a peek if you're going shopping.

The dress is made up of a thick stretchy top, joined to the waistband of the skirt with a wide piece of strong elastic which hugs you. It flares out to a lined skirt with some netting in it to give it fullness. It's very similar in style to one of my other Scarlett & Jo dresses which I wore here and here. I love the elastic waist, it feels quite comforting to me, like I'm being hugged all around. :) I've yet to see an S&J number which doesn't impress.

This is just the kind of dress I'd wear to a wedding, but the only wedding I'm going to this year I'm going to be a bridesmaid at! So exciting! There might be a christening to go to this year though since one of my friends has popped out a sproglet. ;)

Thanks for reading.
