Weekend Stripes and An Ass Kicking

In the Pink--Saturday, 9/19/15

Focal item: White/pink striped drapeneck T

I was inspired by these two bloggers to try my pink striped top with a pink patterned scarf.

Here is a dress version.


Here is a knit top and skirt version.


My take on this combination involves stretchy ankle pants and my trusty travel cardigan, with bright pink ballet flats, of course.

White/pink drapeneck T (Lands End), $4.00/wear+
Black ankle pants (thrifted, Eileen Fisher), $1.50/wear+
Black travel cardigan (thrifted, Chico's), $0.39/wear
"Moroccan" infinity scarf (Charming Charlie), $4.67/wear
Bright pink flats (Payless), $1.44/wear

Outfit total: $12.00/wear

Another winning combination of white and pink.

In other news...So after getting about 10 hours of sleep, my headache was better (not 100% gone) this morning, so I've spent a lot of the day playing Fallout 3.  And somewhere in the last hour or so the game has gotten really hard!  Suddenly everything is kicking my ass.  I hate it when your character goes up a level and then all the enemies are much tougher than before.  I'm also having serious resource problems, as befits a post-apocalyptic game.  Fighting with swords, arrows, and magic is a lot easier from a resource perspective than fighting with guns.  I'm running seriously low on ammo.  I am also starting to miss the restoration magic of the Elder Scrolls games.  Medicine is good but expensive and sort of rare.  I was able to purchase a house right away but it feels like I'll never have enough money to buy an infirmary for it--I think I ended the day with less money than I started with.  I got stuck in this horrible maze of a fire-ant infested underground subway station, and these fire-ants were genetically mutated such that they breathed fire--not fair!  I didn't even get to the main part of that quest--I had to turn around and I was lucky to escape with my life.  That was an expensive retreat because I went through almost all my ammo and medicine.  Oh well, such are the trials and tribulations of the post-apocalyptic adventurer.

I thought you were playing your new game all weekend. You haven't played Yahtzee or WWF much. I hope you are enjoying the game in spite of the setbacks.
