Baby, it's cold outside. You know what that means- time to style cozy winter outfits. Today I'll talk about styling a vintage classic- 501 Levi's. This particular Levi's jeans is one of most iconic denim pieces of all times. With nineties trending, vintage jeans are in high demand and that especially goes for iconic brands such as Levi's. When styling your vintage Levi's jeans, you have several options to choose for. You can opt to get inspired by vintage trends or opt for more modern ones. You can also mix different periods of fashion history. The last opinion is the most fun one if you ask me. Just remember to have fun. Naturally, you don't have to opt for a vintage pair, you can buy a new pair, but there is something to be said about owning a vintage pair of jeans. I actually don't shop for vintage pieces that often, but I wear a lot of vintage. I take good care of my vintage pieces so they would last longer, and I rescue vintage pieces from people I know. I can't tell you how many times I prevented someone from tossing a vintage piece in the trash. When will people learn that vintage clothes are both stylish and environmentally friendly opinion? Anyhow, let's get back to topic and that would be styling vintage jeans.
STYLING LEVI'S 501 WITH A TEDDY BEAR COAT
This outfit is a no brainer. I paired this pair of vintage jeans with my vintage teddy bear coat knowing that these two retro items will get together nicely. For accessories, I choose a beige scarf that matched my teddy bear coat and a blue tote style bag that matched my jeans. I finished the outfit with a cute beanie. It was quite cold that day so I even wore gloves (something I rarely do). How do you like my winter styling?
ČAPLJINA (CHAPLJINA) CITY
These photographs were taken in Čapljina which is a city I can definitely recommend visiting. Recently I posted about one winter destination in Herzegovina and if I ever make a list of places, this city deserves to be on that list. Why? Firstly, it is a very neat little city, very pedestrian friendly and simply perfect for a nice stroll. Secondly, there are many lovely locations in the vicinity, such as Mogorjelo (ancient Roman villa site) and there is also a Equestrian club Vranec, a place where you can ride horses and enjoy historical sights at the same time. Did I also mention that nature there is amazing? The nature park Hutovo Blato is only a short distance away. If you're the type that needs to see to believe, here are five links to some of my previous posts showing off this beautiful little Herzegovina's city.

I have to say that I'm really loving this beige & nude trend. Who knew brown shades could be so alluring? What are your favourite shades? Do you like beige? Did you know that the name for beige colour originates from French where the word used to mean 'natural wool', that is, wool that hasn't been neither bleach nor coloured. Isn't that interesting? Wool is certainly in demand these days, with this whole trend of wool and teddy bear coats. I think it's fabulous since wool is a great material and can keep us warm.
STYLING LEVI'S 501 WITH A TARTAN SKI JACKET
What I like so much about this particular styling is a mix of colour. I choose to wear a big pink bag and a pastel purple sweater under my green tartan jacket. I think these colours go well with these light blue Levi's. If you have read my post about my favourite pairs of jeans, you would have had already seen how I styled these jeans with this green puffer. You know that I'm a fan of wearing colour in winter, so I love outfits like this one.
In case anyone is wondering, the shooting location is Šantićeva one of my favourite streets in Mostar city. This seemingly abandoned house has a certain charm to it, but the whole street is quite interesting and picturesque. It is very quiet here, almost no traffic and it seems like the time has stopped. It is definitely a place I can recommend visiting.
