Fashion: Mixed Patterns...Yay or Nay?

I have been seeing mixed patterns lately..stripes with dots, floral with stripes, etc.  What is your opinion?  I tried the stripes with dots combo yesterday for a coffee date with a friend, and I kinda liked it even though I was paranoid the whole time. My first reaction when I started seeing it was "gross, that's ugly"...but now I may be changing my mind. Am I crazy or do you like it too?  Be honest, but no snide remarks, k? I am already fully aware that I look goofy.

(Everything in exclusion of the cardigan is thrifted..even that pretty wooden plaque on the wall there.)

I think stripes and polka dots are always a great pair - very cute outfit!

Oh, I love your outfit! I personally think it's so much easier to mix stripes and dots instead of florals and stripes. And it's so funny, because the first time I try something new I think the same thing "uh, no, that's not gonna work!" but eventually I start to like it :) Now that you've conquered stripes and dots, are you going to try florals? lol :)

and you look gorgeous!

So I found this image of you on pinterest and I think it's fab. I was parousing through images for my blog dellahsjubilation.blogspot.com and I thought this look was a simple and chic way of incorporating different prints. I love prints but have yet to dive into the print combo trend, well done!! I think for my brunch date with my bestie i will put my spin on it with a blue and gray polka dot blouse i have, but i'll need to get a striped sweater!!
