Oktoberfest, Hawktoberfest: Gearing Up, Collegiate Style

Happy Friday!  Not sure what I'm going to be up to this weekend, though it is "Oktoberfest" in the village and "Hawktoberfest" at my husband's alma mater, which means football games.  If we're going to Oktoberfest, I had better get out my stretchy pants, as this means beer and bratwurst!  If I'm going to be spending time watching college football, I tried out what I would wear: probably something inspired by early 1930s casual/collegiate wear (see below for the images I drew from for the outfit). 

Outfit Details:
Beret: Jacob clothing
Sweater jacket: 1960s or 70s, was a gift from my grandmother years ago (oopsy forgot to button one button).
Neck scarf: thrifted 
Tweed Skirt: Puttin' on the Ritz
1930s oxfords: etsy
