mixing patterns: stripes and floral

I can distinctly remember my favorite outfit from 5th and 6th grade.
my older sister picked it out for me.
it was a black pinstriped skirt and a yellow flowered shirt. 
I probably wore it  to church at least once a month.  I thought the mix of patterns was the greatest thing ever. and I was so cool  for wearing it.

Flash forward several years and I still love the combo of stripes and floral! 

This girl has the scale right. Small floral print and large stripes. And she is also following another rule of coordinating the colors.

Large floral, small stripe AND coordinating grey scheme.

You can also just mix the two with little pops here and there.  No big commitment here ;)

And when all else fails, just use black and white and everything works! :)

Ooooh! I want that little girl's room! What a fun room :) And the laundry room is looking so cute too - washing laundry would become so much nicer if I got to do it in adorable room like that!
