Another oldie: floral cardie with maximal mixing

Continuing Katerina’s oldie-but-goodie challenge, today’s outfit used an old silk floral cardie and bold stripe shirt. These pieces are at least 6 years old. I am trying to modernize with navy jeans, semi tuck, pattern mixing ( cardigan, scarf and shirt) and compliment of white bag and white loafers. I could have used a white belt too, but liked a navy one better. It is cold, so the jeans are not rolled.
#1/2: semi tuck
#3-5: shirt out
The cardigan is a favorite print for spring but a petite and feeling a little small. The shirt is a button-down that is not worn as much as it once was.
I welcome your thoughts and ideas.

    Oh wow, this is GORGEOUS! You are so good at mixing pieces into the most fantastic outfits. I am taking notes. What an inspiration.

    What is the pattern of the scarf? Can’t see it that well on my screen.

    Won-der-ful! White laofers = perfection. They completely make the outfit, in a subtle way. The tops are, of course, exquisite and so very original.

    Thank you all for your kind comments. I wondered how all the pattern mixing would go over.
    Katerina, the scarf is another oldie, a soft cotton square with the pattern of big pinkish-red cherries on navy. I think it is Ralph Lauren from the '80's
