Let me first say I like this photo too and I agree it is not blown out. The light or whatever on the left side of the image is however causing a loss of definition and contrast on the right side of your face and you can't really see where the vest ends and the shirt begins on your shoulder. Wanting to not lose the shape and angles of your face would be more of a worry to me than the hotspots on your clothing to me though. I would probably adjust the exposure down slightly, make some level and contrast adjustments and maybe bump up the vibrancy to keep the image feeling bright but get back some of the areas that have lost that definition.
That being said, the only thing that really matters is if you like how it looks. If you like it then it is great because who else really matters?
