When I looked outside my window this morning, all I saw was gloominess. Alhough the weather wasn’t the best today, that does not mean my outfit couldn’t be vibrant.
A lot of my closet is filled with basic colours, so the perfect way to spice up any outfit is by adding a flannel. There are so many ways to wear a flannel, one of my favourites are tying them around my waist. It’s great to add colour to a simple body con dress, 0r tee, and my favourite holding up your pants! Not going to lie, the flannel I wore around my waist was a great belt.
I worked at a shoe store named Softmoc for a year and a half. While working here, I was able to learn a lot about shoes. Shoes can be expensive, especially Timberlands but I have a life hack that will save you a ton of money.
Youth sizes, and women sizes are the same in size, but the youth sizes are much cheaper. Timberlands for women retail for $189.99, while the youth are $134.99. This is a $55 difference which is a lot of money.
Youth sizes are sized the same way as men sizes are so the youth sizes are able to convert to women sizes. Whatever size you are, subtract 2 numbers from it and that will be your size in youth shoes. Similarly, I’m a size 9 womens, and youth Timberlands go up to a size 7. Size 7 youth is the equivalence to a size 9 womens so I was able to get the youth Timberlands, instead of the Women.
If you would like to know what size you would be in youth, here’s a chart:
The best thing about this life hack is that it doesn’t just work for Timberlands, but it also works for other brands such as Keds, Converse, Sperry’s, etc.
