WardrobeWednesday: Work essentials

As a young professional, I sometimes struggle with feeling my age at the same time as looking the part of someone who wants to be taken seriously. Our workplace doesn't usually require full-on professional suit attire, but looking like you mean business is a must.

So I present what I classify as work essentials. Money is often tight when you're just starting your career, so going with a Target or H&M version of something is totally acceptable, in my book. I try to stick with neutral colors and dress it up to make it my own with scarves, jewelry or bright shoes or a colorful cami.
