7 City Break Outfits I’m Wearing In Budapest

IMG_4985

This was the post that made me feel like I was part style blogger. The post which took about two hours of frantically opening and closing the bedroom curtains whilst I changed, and of carefully balancing my camera on top of two boxes on top of a chest of drawers (because you can’t get portrait shots with a tripod, sob).

I meant to shoot them outside because HELLO there’s glorious sunshine and OMG is that spring I hear in the distance? (Please be spring because I’m fed up of black tights and ALL the jumpers), but then I realised it was half term and their were children playing in gardens and no, I don’t want them to see me through the fence prancing around to a camera on self-timer.

I’ve tried to be good with these 7 outfits, I’ve tried to stick to a capsule wardrobe – I have a habit of either packing everything I own (I once turned up to Heathrow with a 30kg suitcase – not a joke) or of being ‘really good’ and then realising I have nothing to wear and feeling sad. So yeah, I hope this has been an inbetween.

The weather in Budapest (which is where we’re heading tomorrow, and no I haven’t packed or bought travel insurance or feel remotely ready for) is pretty much the same as England, and it’s looking like it’ll be sunny too. Perfect city break weather. OK, so I know I could be layering up more in these outfits, but I plan to be doing a lot of walking, drinking a lot of coffee and drinking a lot of wine, so hopefully the combined effort of all three of those things will stop me crying in the street because I need a second pair of tights on and one of those hats that cover your ears.

So yeah, do what you will with these outfit pictures. Even if it’s just to look at the weird cactuses WITH STUCK ON FLOWERS ON (wtf?) on the wall behind me.

P.S. Soz the focus is AWFUL. Like really awful. Forgive me. Go on, I know they look a bit like the camera on your first Nokia. My bad – they looked fine on my camera screen, but sadly not so fine once they were uploaded. One day I’ll stop being so amatuer, promise.

  • I was in Budapest last week – lovely lovely city! I had such a great time. It snowed all day on one of the days while we were there and it was freezing! I’d say its a few degrees colder than England so pack lots of layers and stop for hot chocolate and yummy cakes to warm up (they have great cakes and pastries!). Have a really great time! xx

    Hey! I absolutely love your blog, I’ve sort of stumbled onto it, and have been getting emails from my subscription for the last few months and it nicely breaks up the ‘Wowcher’ and ‘Asos’ emails, and I’ve grown to honestly love and look forward to your honest view of life. Currently a student in East London too so it’s nice to see someone made it out alive! Keep it up

    Ps. Just stalked your Instagram, It’s been a slow day!

  • Awesome! Just an awesome post and vlog. LOVE the outfits, especially the flight outfit and the first outfit after that – all v sleek and lots of mix-n-match which is essential for a stylish holiday. Have an amazing time and be safe 🙂 I
