Summer Bucket List: Young Professional Clothing Haul

please excuse the wrinkles, I was too excited to iron or wash them before the outfits were photographed.

This fall semester, I am stepping into the professional world as an intern. I am very excited for this experience and look forward to what the fall has in store for me. But before I can step into the office space, I need to revamp my jeans and t-shirt wardrobe in exchange for a well put together, professional style. With school starting in just over two weeks, my grandma and I headed out to Kohl's to find just what I needed.

My grandma was a great help picking out great deals and flattering pieces. I was able to snatch up 12 pieces with a 15% off coupon, clearance rack steals, and an extra 15% off employee discount for $181.75.

When buying new clothes, it is a good idea to clear out old clothes. I took a large tote of clothes to Plato's Closet to sell. While waiting for my clothes to be checked, I found two additional pieces. I made $10 from the clothes I sold and earned 10% off that day on the two items I bought. I am very happy with my purchases and my new young professional wardrobe.

14 items under $200

Candies pink Peplum Blazer
Sonoma Everyday Tees (grey and white)
Lauren Conrad Polka-Dot Blouse
Apt. 9 Geometric Roll-Tab Peasant Henley
Apt. 9 modern fit, straight leg capris (I am 5'3''. I wear the capris as pants.)
Dark wash Dockers pants
Sonoma dresses (plum and chambray)
Daisy Fuentes Sheered Shift dress
Apt. 9 Kensington black wedges

total: $181.75

Plato's Closet
Forever 21 tan blazer
BCX plum dress

total: $11.58 (after 10% off and selling $10 worth of clothing)

Do you have any must have pieces for a young professional wardrobe? 


  1. I love the Apt 9 Peasant shirt! I'm not kidding; I'm going to go into Kohl's to see if they still have one in my size! Super cute!!

  2. It is a really nice shirt. It is soft and comfortable.
