Prominent stripes on lapels tend to make the chest look bigger. With that, the fitted cut, and the athletic physique, the end result might look too dramatic.
Provide a size and budget, please.
It looks better, but it's still too small in the shoulders and the cut is wrong. It needs more padding in the shoulders, and the large pockets are unflattering.
At 5'6", the standard advice is to minimize contrast between pants and shoe color, to maximize the perceived vertical line. Albeit light-colored shoes are generally too casual for the workplace.
