Retro shirt with BR cardigan Look ok?

Hi lovelies,
I went thrifting on Sunday (after I went to a new import place) where I met Murphy the darling Jack Russell terrier.
At the thrift store I found a number of shirts with interesting color and/or patterns. I wasn't too worried about how they would look standalone since I plan to wear them under vnecks or cardigans.
For work today I have teamed a gap green paisley button down(one of the thrifted items) with my new BR yellow cardi, Black Rafaella wide leg work pants, a pair of Ecco black booties and my faux leather gray moto jacket (I remove this when I get to work). Does this work ok?

Thanks for opinions.

    Blue and yellow is YOUR colour combo Meredith! This is lovely - and the paisley pattern on the shirt is lovely!

    I think the blouse is terrific and you look great. Buttoned-up styling is new to me and I'm still unsure of when it works. What does it look like open? Also -- do you have a striped scarf that would work for pattern mixing? Love the yellow!

    The colors in the paisley shirt are beautiful on you!

    So fab! And OMG the jacket is the perfect finishing touch!

    Thanks so much ladies! The shirt is thrifted and the sleeves were too short so I chopped them off sleeveless since I primarily wanted a few things with pattern to wear under sweaters.

    Beth Ann,
    I tried it unbuttoned a little and did NOT like it that way. The collar opened looked way to "disco" to me so I decided to just go for a prim proper look. I didn't find a scarf that I felt would work properly and honestly I wear so many scarves I thought I would try the look sans scarf. Maybe a man's tie would work?

    Love the yellow and paisley green together --- what a way to step into spring, Meredith! And such a smart idea to scrunch up the sleeves, updating the buttoned cardi. Nifty!
