I decided to pattern mix but not to go with anything really bright today. I did add the necklace, shoes and earrings to give the outfit a little oomph. I rather liked the polka dots with the lattice print, and as the sweater and skirt are pretty much an exact color match, the BHW said that they looked like they were made to go together.
