This weekend we went to New Ulm, MN to visit Matt's sister and attend their Oktoberfest. Being the (self-declared) POLKA CAPITAL OF THE NATION, basically every weekend in New Ulm is Oktoberfest. But apparently this one was the main event. I decided to give my trusty fall uniform a break and wore my favorite L.L. Bean fisherman sweater instead, along with a similarly toned jacket and t-shirt.
You might ask: isn't it a little risky to wear a beige jacket, sweater, and t-shirt to an outdoor festival?
L.L. Bean Signature Fisherman Sweater (size up!)
Uniqlo Striped Linen Blend T-Shirt
Steven Alan Moto Jacket (super old, from eBay)
AG Farrah Jeans (love the fit but have worn out way too fast)
Vans Leather Sk-8 Hi Slim Sneakers
Answer: No. German food is beige (and delicious, I might add). Beer is beige. The caramel apple pie I bought on the way was beige. My hair is so beige that it blends into that beige building. It was a low contrast, low risk situation (even for me).
