Need some advice on wardrobe update!

I just got a bonus at work and decided to spend it all on me instead of bills!! I am 28 years old and haven't bought new clothes in a while, so I really need an update. I work in a business casual environment and while I don't have to wear suits, I think I need a more professional look. Most of my work clothes are worn out and do not fit well anymore. Alot of my tops are too short, showing too much skin and my tattoo when I bend over. I'm also wearing the same things over and over becuase I barely have anything nice. I want to look my age and not like a teenager, but I still want to have a young edge... So my question is, does anyone have any suggestions for some basics that I can buy to update my look?? I also need new accessories as I barely have any. I'm really starting from scratch! I have about $300 to spend... The only thing I've really thought of so far is to look for one of those cute little blazers everyone's wearing right now. Any store suggestions would help too, I don't know where to go... (I live in Chicago if that helps!!!)
