So–hey y’all! Today’s outfit is a budgeting girl’s miracle. I went out yesterday to get my car washed and since it was such a nice day I decided to walk around my local Tanger Outlet. My initial reason for going was to visit Old Navy to find out if they had any workout gear on sale. I ended up in the Ralph Lauren store.
I normally don’t go anywhere near Ralph Lauren because broke, but I just went in on a whim. They had lots of stuff on clearance, but that usually boils down to stuff I still can’t afford. I came across a $19.99 knit polo and I started to feel pretty good about this trip.
All of their knit polos were marked down to $19.99–that’s in my price range. I can work with that. They had jeans on clearance, but I wasn’t very optimistic about finding my size or my price. Uh, jeggings for $19.99? Yeah, Ralph Lauren and I are rocking awfully hard right now.
After a session of fitting room cardio where I fought my way into the jeans and had a lackluster encounter with sales people who believed that a size 26 (waist) was the equivalent of a size 6 😕, I walked away with a pair of jeggings and a super cute boat neck tee. I didn’t get the polo because they didn’t have my size in the color I wanted.
