My blush patterned BCBG blouse is one of my favourite purchases from this summer (thank you Angie!) and I'm wanting to extend its wear into autumn 'cause I'm not ready to put it away yet.

Today I paired the blush kimono-esque blouse with a black tank and black bootcut trousers. I think the full length trousers "autumnize" the blouse but doesn't make it look seasonally confused.

For footwear, I went with my metallic charcoal Naot Mary-Jane pumps. These probably aren't the sleekest looking shoe with these trousers but my arches are quite sore this morning so support and comfort are key.

On top of everything when I head out the door - and in fact, may keep on in the office depending on the a/c temperature - is my blush leather jacket. I had Danier Leather shorten the sleeves and narrow them slightly over the summer and I much prefer the fit now. The neckline of the blouse and jacket probably compete a bit but that doesn't bother me in the least.

To finish off the outfit, I chose my gold watch and wedding ring, black/white specs and my black leather handbag. I like how the hardware in the jacket and handbag are the same gold tone.

What do you think? Does the blouse work for autumn? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
