Hello everyone, I'm just back from my annual extremely-busy work conference and am looking forward to catching up on what I've missed on the forum over the last week.

In the meantime I could use some advice. I'm reading a piece of my writing and participating in a panel discussion at a prominent literary venue in my city a few weeks from now. I am SUPER excited about this!

But, of course, I have no idea what to wear. Can you all help me brainstorm and then I can start trialing outfits from my closet?

I'd like to wear something comfortable, practical, that somehow both conveys intellectual seriousness and is a bit arty/creative.

It doesn't need to be terribly dressy. I expect lots of members of the audience will be in jeans and fleece.

Thanks in advance for any inspiration!
