So how do we navigate the change from comfy loungewear to work clothes and still be comfortable? Keep reading, because in these series I'll show you how with tried and tested tips...

I have to start this series with shoes. We stand and walk on our feet all day and they get abused by ill-fitting contraptions we call shoes.

Story: I remember working for a company where I had to wear heels all day. I searched the kingdom for the perfect pair. I wanted to try Banana Republic 24-hour shoes but they no longer existed in the UK. In the end, I settled for 'Next Forever Comfort'. The first day felt like a dream. I felt sexy, confident and ready to conquer the world. They were suede, pointed and had a slight 'V' shape, they were beautiful. Que the next day, Gordon Bennett, I was breathing so hard through the pain of blisters that developed I thought I was going to pass out, to make matters worse, I didn't have any other shoes and still had another three hours until the end of my shift.
