Most people would think that mixing prints equals getting dressed in the dark or without a mirror. I beg to to differ! There are times when it can scream, "look at me!" but if done the right way, you won't look like a fashion bullseye. Mixing patterns is all about staying within the same color palette and keeping your prints roughly the same size. My favorite pattern-on-pattern look is a simple nautical-inspired stripe with a floral. Just try it and you'll see; it isn't that terrifying!
