Listen, you’ve got to stop working through lunch. Consider this a sign: you’ve been neglecting your daily survival calorie intake, and it’s time to sort it out! Once the clock strikes noon (or 1, or whenever you crazy kids go to lunch these days), gear up with your wallet and raging appetite, and head down to your local fave restaurant. Of course, this is much easier said than done. If you need advice on how to step away from your desk, here you go: FOOD—just imagine eating it. And if that doesn’t work, here’s another: Wear a killer outfit so stunning that you’ll feel the innate need to show it off.
We’ve put together one such outfit for you, starting with these show-stopping wide-leg pants. With its exaggerated cut, it’s like it was made for sashaying. The fun doesn’t stop there though. Load up on the stripes with this tweed blazer that just screams vintage-cool. Then pull it all together with a simple skinny belt. Now go on, show off your bad self—even if it’s just to grab a salad that you’ll bring right back to your desk. Ugh, workaholics, am I right?
