June Challenge: Old EF K/T?

Continuing my oldies week, today I have for your consideration an Eileen Fisher light weight boxy jacket and EF linen woven sleeveless top, both in the same shade of light green. These pieces are from before I lost a bunch of weight but are so comfortable for hot summer. I have long ago passed on the pants that matched the jacket and skirt that matched the top, but I love this unusual green color with my skin. It gives me an instant tan. However, I need to face reality. Do either of these pieces look like they fit well enough? I would probably not be matchy and wear them together. I'd love your thoughts.
#1/2 show the jacket, #3/4 is the top alone. The photos are awful, but I am wearing a rather dark wash blue denim Paige jeans.
The bag in finds is a vintage leather piece. Flats and jeans in Finds are similar.

    I was dubious when I read your text but have to say that I quite like both pieces--even together! I think the skinny bottoms, belt and shoes make this look great. I love the tank on its own as well with the semi tuck.

    They feel short to me or like they should be worn with high waisted bottoms to me...

    I like the pieces; my preference is the top alone, and I love the whole outfit here with you stylish flats and wonderful jeans, but I also like it with the jacket.  If it is a colour you love I would keep and wear both pieces.

    Thank you all. I am leaning toward keeping them through this summer to see if I still want to wear them, at least the top which doesn't need ironing.

    I like the tank but the jacket may be a little too boxy.  It may be a problem with the camera angle though.

    I like the top but the jacket looks a little dated to me.
