I know that one of the most common mixed pattern combinations is florals and stripes, but the reason that they're so popular is because they're just so pretty together - especially for the summer! The way I "match" them is to ensure one pattern has at least one, if not two, of the colours in the other pattern; so here, blue also features in the floral pattern, and white is sort of in the floral as well. Just about ;)
I'm not sure if I've perhaps over-accessorised a little in this outfit(?), but sometimes I just want to pile it all on because I have a lot of pretty stuff I just want to wear, and I make no apologies for that! The black flower headband just doesn't get worn as much as it should, and I'd forgotten how nicely it contrasts with the red of my hair. So I've piled on the bracelets, rings, a necklace, belt... It's all there, don't care!!
