A delicious mix of patterns

Hello Lovelies,
     We have all (I think) learn to love the mix of different patterns in our outfit. At least if we haven't fallen yet into mixing patterns together, we do love polka dots and floral prints, so I put them together in today's outfit. Since I was mixing 2 to 3 different patterns, I looked for different sized patterns. The polka dot shirt really has small dots when compared to the flowers on the floral pants. Then, I added plain colored items such as the long white coat and black flats, in order to tone the outfit a little bit down.   

The item I love the most in this outfit is the white coat or the white blazer, it fits perfectly and although it has 3/4 sleeves, it's very warm because of the inside, which is very 'stuffed' (ha!). I'm wearing a size Large and not medium, which is normally my size because I wanted my coat to be very large on me.

  I did not have to add the scarf around the bag but I thought that the little touch of fur on my outfit would elevate it somehow and then it was one of those 'out of nowhere' cold days during which some fur won't kill.
  Anyways, what do you think about the outfit? Convinced or not you should mix patterns?

[Wearing]: Charlotte Russe black suede pointy toe flats (here) | Worthington black & white floral pants (similar here) | JCPenney black polka dot green shirt (similar here) | Liz Clairborne 3/4-sleeve white blazer coat (here) | Accessories: 80's purple sunglasses, H&M, Charlotte Russe, Maxx New York (very old!)

Lots of Love Lovelies

I absolutely love the white jacket/blazer on you--and it really ties the outfit together. I especially like your sizing choice as well--the oversized fit works really well here.
