Gwen Stefani blonde torn denim denim tank top purse boots heels singer no doubt gavin rossdale It can't be all play and no work!

Gwen Stefani has been soaking up the summer with frequent trips to the beach with her boys lately, but today the No Doubt singer headed into an LA office building to take care of business! The blonde bombshell was more dressed down than usual in ripped jeans, a black tank, and funky cinched tan heels. Something that never changes? Her signature red lips!

The 42-year-old divulged in a recent interview why she took a break from the band to pursue a solo career.

"There's nothing that compares to being in a band with your best friends you've known all these years. Playing live is so automatic and so electric. That whole period when I got to do[solo] records, to me it was indulging my theatrical side, and getting to be really creative that way; like, do costumes, and costume changes; do music that was electronic and not have to worry about a drummer or anything else - songs that were never meant to be taken seriously, just for fun. It was just a project I did that was very inspired, and it kind of got a little out of control, really. But there's no place like home; we're so comfortable together, we understand each other. It feels, like, normal. Whereas that [solo] period felt like I was trying to be something, and play a role, and pretend," she explained.

We cannot wait for the new album Push and Shove to hit stores!
