Outfit Of The Day: Featuring Denim Jacket

Rachel Zoe.png

Hi everyone!! I hope you are all having an amazing week.

I haven’t posted an Outfit of the Day in so long and I’m so excited to be posting one today.

I’ve always wanted a denim jacket, but I was having a hard time finding one that was long enough. One day my mom told me that my dad had a denim jacket sitting around in his closet. I figured the length would be perfect so I knew I had to find it.

I really wanted it to be distressed, long, and overall comfy. My dad’s jacket worked perfectly because he’s had it for such a long time. The only issue I had was how long the sleeves were. I decided to roll the sleeves up a bit and voila!! Good as new.

I hope you guys enjoy today’s outfit of the day and here’s a list of everything I’m wearing:

Jeans: American Eagle

Sunglasses: Urban Behaviour

Choker: Garage

Denim Jacket: Dad’s closet

Boots: Old Navy

T-Shirt: Urban Behaviour

OOTD: A Red Flannel Kind of Day Featuring Life Hack

the-sun-of-stars-1

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. 

Life Hack:

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.
