The reality of going back to work is bearing down on us like an out-of-control Mack truck. The only way I can think of easing the blow: dress to impress and feel good (i.e., not dull). Just like Leandra Medine, above, I'd start with an irreverently chic skirt that will fly at work and after hours, such as this zipper-trimmed one from Warehouse, this color-blocked Band of Outsiders pencil skirt (on sale!), this striking wool check Asos, this metallic tweed Tory Burch, and this leather-trimmed Proenza Schouler. (Leandra's leather skirt is by Tibi from Spring 2013 and no longer for sale.) Then, I'd begin plotting my next vacation!
