I would recommend getting some kind of overpant in the morning. It keeps bug guts off your nice pants and keeps you warm. I just use some thin snow pants. On my way home I toss it in my backpack along with my jacket liner.
That seems to be an issue for me too. I leave a pair of work shoes at the office now. I also bought a magnetic tank bag where I put my work clothes and just change twice (morning and afternoon). I feel safe wearing my riding gears and I don't mind the few minutes I spend for those.

+1, but maybe it would be a better idea to use an overpant actually designed for riding.

I commute 30 miles each way, almost every day, almost all freeway. Even during the summer we usually stay below 80F in the mornings, so it's not too bad. Going home is another matter (100F+), but unavoidable.

It's dark when I go in, so I carry my tinted visor with me in a backpack, along with lunch etc, and I also have the work shoes (and belt) at the office.
