Once again I’ve come to New York only to get drenched in the rain. I thought I was prepared this time. I brought an extra set of clothes and had an umbrella. What I wasn’t prepared for was the amount of rain and how cold it would be.
Basically, I got a thorough soaking. I made some bad shoe choices (well they would have been sensible if it wasn’t pouring) and stepped in a deep puddle. I had optimistically thought it would be sandal weather. It is not. I had no choice but to go to Target and get new shoes just so I could have dry feet. They are Champions. Blush pink Champions. They are comfy.
While I was at Tar-jay, I also picked up some joggers as the ones I wore down were completely endampened. They still are as I write this.
I brought my jean jacket because I was going to see James Bay, and I still wore it even though it was wet. I was shivering as I walked to the venue so I stopped at Old Navy along the way to get an overcoat just so I wouldn’t freeze to death. It is orange. It was also on sale for $12.
I also got some socks at a dollar store and a bra at Target.
I really wanted to get through this trip without shopping, but once again I failed. Sigh.
