OKTOBERFEST aka VOLKSFEST - the best festival ever.

Wow! What a trip. I had so much fun and can not get over how nice everyone was. You know how people say Germans can be gruff and rude? Nope - not at Volksfest anyways. People were over the top friendly, so it was one big HAPPY fest.

Quick PHOTO post on the festival. Let's just say Friday's EUROTRASH is going to DELUXE!!!!!

The outfit. No one else wore hats at the festival, so I was the weird girl with the Robin Hood hat a trendsetter


Loved the back detail of the vest. Pants were opshopped (and stretched out from sitting. Sorry for the bum shot - trying to show the back detail of the outfit). Vest and shirt from Pimkie. Hat - Austria road trip.
Leather Romanian boots - opshopped. H&M socks.


Necklace - Pimkie (long, doubled up)

Crazy busy. Everyone was standing on the tables and singing to modern German music. Or...American music in German. No Polka or Chicken dance at this festival. Must be an American thing. This is one of MANY tents.  

I couldn't get over how YOUNG these guys were. The minimum drinking age in the tents is the tender age of 15.

This is a FAMILY EVENT. Children and the elderly joined in the festivities. Yes - they were standing on the tables too.


These cookie necklaces had 'phrases' on them.  

The train ride home. It was PACKED.  Everyone was singing and dancing, the whole train was swaying. With this many people, you'd think there would be fights or arguments? Nope -everyone was Happy, Friendly and Smiling. Who doesn't love that?

This style of dress was EVERYWHERE. Modest yet lovely.

More dresses.Personally I prefer the trousers since the benches are wet and no always clean.

Some of my coworkers. They were a blast!

More to come!!

xoxo,
Michelle

omg!!! I love your Oktoberfest outfit!! You look awesome!

The town where I went to university had a ton of German people so Oktoberfest was always a huge deal there. I miss it! Being in ACTUAL Germany for this must be amazing.

What a fun day, your outfit is perfect, love that vest and those chunky boots but that hat is my fav. I want a cookie necklace, not really but they are a cute idea. Boys can drink at 15 at that event, wow. Just wow!
