Stripes, Floral and Fringe

There are a lot of people out there that are afraid of wearing more than one pattern at a time. I don't do it often and when I do, it needs to be subtle(ish). I took a chance with this stripped, loose, boat neck shirt paired with a floral skater skirt.

I know it sounds ridiculous but every now and then I'll mix a couple different patterns and my eyes can't decide if it totally works or if it's a bust. Have you ever put on a new outfit, took a look in the mirror and genuinely didn't know if it worked or not?

 Personally, I think mixing only works when it's monochrome or in greyscale (like this one). Another trick is to have a focal pattern and add the second one as an accent.

And of course, what good is a summer outfit without cute ankle boots and a little fringe?!
