Today's Everyday Fashion: Governor's Conference

Aliens invaded my camera and put a dark streak in my hair. (It doesn't really exist.)
I attended the Governor's Conference on Tourism for VISIT FLORIDA this week and this is what I wore! I'm very excited about the winter potential for this patterned dress - I think it will look great with brown boots and a navy jacket. I wanted to wear it for a more summery look first though, so I reached for an off-white belt and shoes. This dress is slightly big (it's a M), but the belt works wonders and is moving the waistband down a bit (I placed the belt just under the elastic so it would create a lower waistline). At the bottom I am sharing my "company shirt required" look - how I dressed up a company shirt for the conference (for two examples on how to dress up a work polo go here). Have you ever attended a conference for work? What did you wear?
