My Style Challenge: First Time Speaking

I'm excited to say I've reached a point in my career where I actually speak at conferences! I was invited to speak on a panel at the Digital Media Conference on Social Media ROI and was surprised to find I had no anxiety about it! But I did have a slight spazz out over what I was going to wear, ahahahha. So some of you may recall when I posted this...I ended up going with the mixed print dress! I wanted to look professional yet creative and fresh and this piece by Amanda Uprichard was perfect. I work in the marketing and communications so I'm always thinking about image... and, yes, I need to be my own personal brand! I may not be looking for work, but I want people to look at me and think, "She knows what she's talking about!" At the very least, would you check out a fashion blog written by someone dressed like a bum? Or worse, in an boring black suit????

I accidentally grabbed the wrong blazer to wear over my beauteous dress, but I threw it over my shoulders cape-style which I've been really obsessing over lately!
I'm wearing: Mixed print dress from CUSP, pink heels from Victoria's Secret, ASOS blazer, vintage Gucci watch, J. Crew wrap bracelet, rings from Banana Republic, necklace and earrings from my mom.
Practicing the model stare down! How do I look... am I on my way to ending up on Marketing Douchebags??
