Having to dress like it's summer when it's not all that warm at home can be a challenge! However, I had a fluke while we were shooting in Florida.
I usually go for bright colours while filming in the sunshine as it looks better on camera, but on this occasion I had to make a concession! Kyra from Kyra loves in Parsons Green stocks holiday/beach wear all year round and has saved me on numerous occasions when finding summer dresses anywhere else has been impossible! She's also got fabulous taste and guides me when I can't make a decision.
Before seeing this, I had never thought of wearing a kaftan on the show, not to mention a sheer one! But Kyra suggested layering it with a slip underneath, making it workable and bringing another dimension to the outfit.
It actually got a bit chilly, so I was so grateful my leather jacket worked with this outfit! It was also a bloody bargain originally priced at £380, I picked it up for £60 in Tkmaxx in Putney!
It's tricky having to be your own stylist when you know a lot of people at home will be watching and judging, so I couldn't be more grateful to have he likes of Kyra and Bels to keep me straight. Xx
