Oktoberfest Outfit

Yesterday, we attended the Oktoberfest in Mountain View (local readers: it's also going on today, October 1!), a quite festive and elaborate production. The spirit of the crowd was definitely fun.

I wore the only traditional German blouse I own but paired it with jeans to give it a more modern and "me" feel. 

By the way, I only drank water but had to borrow the beer for the pictures... 

I even translated for a bit for Heinz, the MC, which was fun. 

I can't believe how tall the kid has gotten...

After a stressful month on multiple fronts, it was good to get out and have some fun. 

Questions: Have you ever attended an Oktoberfest celebration? 

Be well,

  2. Having serious blouse envy, and pairing it with jeans was perfect! You speak German? How wonderful! (Says a longtime Spanish language student who is beginning to doubt that she will ever achieve fluency!)

  3. Happy Sunday Andrea!

  5. That blouse is so perfect for that event!! You rocked the look, Andrea!!!!
    But I can't believe you didn't have any beer..ha ha!!

  6. Oh what a fun event! It's great you had a traditional top to wear, updated nicely with the jeans. You fitted in perfectly! :) It's wonderful you could translate also. I'd love to speak another language.

    Hope you have had a good weekend! I'm currently enjoying the long weekend as it's a public holiday today in Brisbane :)

  11. Love the top. And yes, I lived in Germany for ten years, so I've done a few Octoberfests (here and there).

  12. No, I've never been, but it does look like fun. I really like this combination of traditional top with casual jeans - it works so well Andrea.

    Have a fab week!
