When I was putting together this outfit for work, I had a really difficult time finding a blazer that matched the black in my dress. Who would think that there's variations of black, but there are. The dress is linen and I don't own any linen blazers because honestly, I despise linen. It wrinkles too quickly and then you wind up looking like a rumpled mess all day. However, the dress held up pretty well, which is a good thing because it would be in the donate pile had it not performed up to my expectations!
