Outfit Inspirations: Mixing Patterns

My last inspiration was about mixing colors in an outfit. This time, I mixed patterns. I'd posted outfit ideas around mixing Floral patterns and Stripes, and after seeing even more about mixing Flower patterns and Stripes, I decided to try it myself!

The inspiration:

Lucky's How-To Styling

And Nanette Lepore during NYC Fashion last spring

Even, Mrs. Obama sported the mixture...

I went with the smaller stripe and clusters of small floral print in my skirt:

I really liked this outfit. I felt it was interesting. I love layers and by adding the textured cardi on top added more depth. What do you think?

Cardi - Jcrew (similar)
Striped Long-Sleeve Shirt - Banana Republic (similar here, tank, big stripes, thin stripes)
Skirt - Anthro
Black Tights - Banana Republic
Tall Black Boots - Banana Republic (this year's version)
