What I Wore to Oktoberfest

Before we get into the outfit, let's first talk about a change I made last week.

I went back to my natural hair color, brunette, with the help of Chris from Chic Image Lounge. Not only did he give me a beautiful sombre color, which is really popular for fall, he also did a keratin treatment, which made my course, frizzy hair smooth and shiny. I'm loving the overall look.

Want to know what hairstyles are on trend this season? I had the opportunity to connect with Chris and other hair stylists for a story I wrote for TBO Seen. Check it out: 8 hair trends to try this fall.

OK, on to the outfit.

Here's a random fact you might not know about me: I'm 1/4 German. So, when October rolls around, you better believe I'm searching for a local Oktoberfest celebration with German beer, food and oompah music.

Lucky for me, there are several Oktoberfest events in the Tampa Bay area. Here's another shameless TBO Seen plug for those who live around these parts: 5 Oktoberfest celebrations to check out in Tampa Bay. There's still one Oktoberfest on the list coming up next weekend.

This dress was one of my go-to's throughout the summer, and it's still going strong into fall. There's something about white lace that I just adore.

Come to think of it, these shoes have also been go-to's lately. They're closed-toe, but they have an all-over, cut-out pattern, which make them perfect for Florida fall.

And speaking of perfect, my purse is a beer mug, and one of my necklace charms is a tiny beer stein. Need I say more? :)

  1. This outfit is so so cute! I've never been to an Oktoberfest celebration, mainly because I'm underage so I cannot drink, but they seem like they'd be a lot of fun! Maybe in a few years I'll go to one- there always seems to be a bunch around here!


    1. Thanks, Amber! But you're making me feel old now that I know you're not even drinking age! :-P
