WIW 3/20: Satin blouse and trousers

I'm doing a pants week just so I can use some of the pants that I recently had hemmed finally. Pre-YLF I used to wear pants all the time so that I could wear my comfy Dansko clogs or Merrell mocs. Then when I joined YLF I started wearing pumps and boots more and really preferred to wear skirts and dresses (no need to fuss with PPL). I finally forced myself to get over my PPL anxiety and just get the pants hemmed! Hopefully the length is correct.

Cream satin blouse from Classiques Entier. Super old (pre-kids), one of my first ever Nordstrom purchases. It's a bit tight at the bust now that I have post-baby/nursing boobs so the top button wanted to pop open (fortunately I was wearing a cami underneath). I wanted to see if it still is workable. I found out one of the sleeve buttons was missing so I had to roll the sleeves. Is this shirt salvageable or should I get rid of it?
Halogen brown trousers (it had a cuffed hem but i had the cuff removed when they hemmed it)
Clarks brown mid-heel pumps--so comfy! Amazing that all my best/most comfy work pumps were bought ages ago pre-YLF!
Leopard belt from Gap
Triple strand champagne pearl necklace from WHBM
Anthro purple tweed coat (didn't wear it much though)
Jack Georges brown briefcase

    Oh Beautiful! That purple tweed coat is awesome on you. And so are the shoes! A very elegant, refined touch. Everything about this outfit is elegant.

    Wow, that coat is the perfect topper. And I covet those shoes! They're sleek-looking, unlike most comfy shoes.
