It looks like it was a hard first day back at the office for ‘Gossip Girl’ actress Leighton Meester, who was spotted shooting scenes for the hit show in Manhattan today.

The brunette beauty had to do several scenes running in Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps. She stopped to take the pressure off before finally opting for flip flops between scenes.

Her orange pumps worked perfectly with her citrus print Stella McCartney Spring 2011 skirt, which was paired with a bright yellow ruffled top.

An orange Riki Rosetta tote completed ‘Blair Waldorf’s’ look.

I want this look for my closet. I can almost taste the citrus flavours.
