"When I wear a suit I worry about being too dressy or too formal. I don’t like to be overdressed cause then I end up feeling self-conscious. That's why I love the pattern on this blazer, it instantly adds personality. The silhouette mixed with the marble print adds youth and edge to something that's typically 'serious'."
