My favourite Austin outfit
For my Kazio Radio interview I wore the Ted Baker Quaro Rose On Canvas Dress in Nude Pink from John Lewis, teamed with a white leather tote bag from Lancel, Paris and white pointed leather shoes from Eye London.
The weather in Austin, Texas is very hot, averaging 33 degrees and I wanted to wear something smart but comfortable. Even thought it was a radio interview and the audience can’t see me, wearing a nice dress boosts my confidence and therefore does contribute to my oral delivery.
The Ted Baker dress is a scuba style, fitted just enough to show off my curves and just above the knee to show my more shapely legs (thanks to all the walking). The shoes have trendy pointy toes but only a 3-inch heel, so are very comfortable to walk in and being sling-backs, also keep my feet cool!
I’m too embarrassed to reveal the cost of the dress and handbag – not far off the cost of the return flight….but good quality lasts year on year, so is worth it in the long run!
