What I'm Wearing: Weekend Wear | The New Classics!

While following street style trends, I for the colder months I always see pea coats, leather leggings and booties paired together.  And it's the perfect uniform for fall and winter. 
I'm calling leather legging a "new classic" because they're not going anywhere anytime soon.  They've become a wardrobe staple.  And they're actually pants whereas lycra legging are not.
"LOVE"
And they look great with pea coats.  I'm quite partial to my pea coat.  I think it's one of the greatest things I've made.  And everytime I wear it, I always receive compliments.  And I'm beaming with pride as people gag when I tell them that I made it!  It goes without saying that I LOVE this coat!
I've been contemplating making another one this year in a bright color.  Maybe after the first of the year.
Wearing:  pea coat: Vogue 2873 (OOP); blouse: McCall's 6651; leather leggings: McCall's 6404; booties: Just Fab.com 'Leander'.
