Christmas in Budapest

So last week I travelled to Budapest. I had no particular expectations and medium levels of excitement before my trip, however I returned back home with overwhelming emotions and warmest memories. The city was so incredibly beautiful, clean and full of Christmas spirit. I am not even going to try and write about every place I have visited, but I will tell you that if you do go, you will be spoilt for choice. 

Beautiful and luxurious restaurants that we went to were, no doubt, very lovely, but Christmas markets stole my heart. Traditional street food, festive music, bright lights, millions of different types of mulled wine… Everything made me feel so happy and warm inside, despite the freezing temperatures on the outside :). 

I tried to capture my outfits in the usual street-style matter, but it is literally so boring to concentrate on outfit pictures when you are surrounded by all this beauty! In this post I have only a few shots of what I am wearing, as I wanted to show you the city instead. I tried to keep as warm as possible, as it was absolutely freezing outside, so don’t let the shirt fool you, I’ve had a full thermal set underneath haha! And in one of the pictures you can even see my leggings  peeking from underneath my skirt haha! Whoops… talking about wardrobe malfunction. 

Haha yep, here it is, the legging shot. In ideal world, I would have preferred to wear a different pair of shoes with this outfit, but as we did hours and hours of walking around, those were a more comfortable alternative for the day. I also love this sleeveless sweater that I have found in Primark just a day before I travelled. I can see getting a lot of use out of it this winter. 

Oh and, who says you have to go to New York to ride a yellow taxi? πŸ˜€

Have a look at the last two pictures. That’s another thing about this city, is it so good at going from day-time to night-time. Same place, two different stories, but both just as magical.
