Levi's 501 Jeans and Whistles Tee- MyStyle Outfit Post

Hi everyone!! I've been wanting a pair of original vintage or retro 501 jeans for quite a while now and on the way home from the dentist last week I stopped at my local Sue Ryder charity shop for a browse-I'm glad I did as I found this pair of 90s slightly distressed ones for just £3.95.

The colour, fit and wash are just perfect for Summer and I couldn't wait to wear them- I teamed them up with my grey tee by Whistles (which as an Eiffel Tower print) and leopardprint flats from Primark. When you've nothing special planned, it's lovely just to chill in your favourite jeans and tee:



The price was great too as 501s are really holding their own pricewise so if you can get a pair from the boot sale or charity shop, I would really recommend you do so-size up too, to get that authentic boyfriend slouch and fit which is not only on trend but super comfortable this Summer:


The jeans sit at the waist and are straight all the way down and these ones are a longer length so really do need the turn ups!! They have been worn in to just the right point too, they are lovely and comfortable and have just the right fading and wash to them:


I am linking this post to the lovely Patti at NotDeadYetStyle.com for Visible Monday.

I do hope you all had a lovely weekend and wishing you a great week to come too!

Another fantastic bargain! I was looking for the Whistles t-shirt you gave me last week - need to have a serious decluttering session! Good to see you on Saturday, let's meet up again soon x

What a great outfit...and thanks for the tip re. jeans. I get confused when I get to my local thrift jean dept. I have a better idea of what to look for now!

You look great in that style! I hope I can find some 501s for myself one of these days.

I am obsessed with Levi's. I'm always wearing my oversized 501s that I found at the Goodwill. Yours look great. Mine are a bit worn, but I will never throw away.

They look fantastic on you. I haven't worn them since the 80's but I loved them - the bigger the better! x

Awww, you look all kinds of adorable in your boyfriends. Completely loving the tee you chose to wear ... there's the discrete hint that you might show a hint of midriff, but no! The Eiffel Tower motif creates some cool narrative, but then you know I'm a fool for narrative!
501's here are everywhere, as they're the uniform of farmers, ranchers and everyone else ... 'cept me. Too short. Sigh.

Everyone in my high school either wore 501s or Guess ankle-zip jeans :-D

Looks great on you!

You look adorable and so youthful!
I like boyfriend jeans but I have to be careful because I could look very big on them. By the way those transparent sandals are so cool!
