The toughest part about being a stylist—and I don’t mean blogger or someone who puts together cute outfits—is that you have to look cute AND dress for the often grueling work.

The schlepping…the shopping bag shuffle…the hours on end of standing that kill your feet…the occasional getting on the floor to fix a hem…it’s NOT as glamorous as you think.

With the exhausting jobs I’ve been on lately, I need to dress both fashionable and comfortably. I also can’t wear my expensive designer splurges at risk of getting them ruined.

I always try to find some great *SENSIBLE* pieces that I can do this physical job in, but still look cute. Most importantly, a good flat shoe is a must. These kind of remind me of a vintage pair of Manolos. No matter whether it’s flats or heels, good padding can save your soles (no pun intended). I put these Dr. Scholl’s inserts in almost every pair of shoes I own to help alleviate my high arches.

More of a heels gal? Lucky duck. Well, this stylist trick may help pad any of your favorite shoe woes.

So glamorous.
