Today's Pattern Mixing: 2 Plaids and a floral plus striped socks ( ETA photos of today’s mix)

After reading Angie's blog on pattern mixing, I could hardly wait to see what my cold weather clothes could offer. No picture yet of the outfit but the items from Finds: plaid jeans, plaid flannel shirt used as a jacket, floral top...all in reds and blues. My socks are wool navy and tweedy cream striped. It is pretty hectic as the Reds and blues are not a great match. The blue in the jeans looks a bit more teal than I'd like...not good with the plaid shirt's blue but pretty good with the background blue of the blouse.
What do you think? I wore this mostly for a casual day of cleaning, cooking and dog walking. Do I dare wear it out for a casual meal ?

Styling Lab for OTK boots and sweater dress toppers

Still doing Angie’s October wardrobe edit and need help. Please look at these OTK suede boots in photos 1-7. They are flat, comfortable with tights, and can be worn several ways. 1/2 OTK.
3/4 tops folded down. 5/6 one scrunched, one folded down inside. 7: both folded down inside. Please overlook bruised knee from a fall. The skin is healed but still looks discolored.
The other photos are of some possible toppers for the sweater dress and dress alone. What looks best? Should I even be wearing the dress? Boots in these photos are shown folded down inside.
I am eager to read your thoughts.
