1,001 Beautiful Things: Day 13

Today had the potential to be terrible — my glorious little cold is getting progressively worse, I ache, and I had a class that I was kind of dreading. Still, I forced myself to go to the gym, because I skipped yesterday and I don't want to get out of the habit that I have worked so hard to create. I went about an hour and a half before class, planning to work out for thirty minutes, get dressed/do my makeup, and then have 20 minutes to get to class.

I forgot my shirt to wear afterwards, and I live 40 minutes from my school/the gym. I was panicked, and I rushed to Target to try to find something affordable and cute. I spent twenty minutes trying on clothes, and the only thing that I liked was this gray tunic/sweatshirt (it is way cuter than it sounds, I will have to post pictures.) Unfortunately, it was the most expensive item that I had picked up — $24. I know that doesn't sound like much, but I have had to do some car repairs/pay insurance, and it was about $1,000 more than I expected. I'm pretty tight on money at the moment, and I didn't want to pay that much for a Target sweatshirt.

Nonetheless, I went to the checkout with it, because I figured that it was better to spend $24 on something that looked good than $10 on something that looked terrible and would only be worn once.

I got to the register, and it was on clearance for $5.95. Seriously, best moment of my day. I asked the woman who was working at the register if she was sure, because I didn't want a mistake to cost her or the store, and she said that it rang up correctly.

It was beautiful, and it is super comfortable and shaped well enough to be worn with heels.
