style spotter: budapest, hungary

thewino1I’ve never been more proud of my packing capabilities than the night before I left for #LTeuropa, having rolled up two week’s worth of carefully selected outfits, accessories, and toiletries into a small carry-on suitcase. Could it be that The Lazy Travelers are actually perfecting the art of packing lightly?

Flash forward forty eight hours and the romantic and I were sprawled on the floor of our one hundred degree, un-air conditioned apartment, dreading the thought of putting on any of the outfits I had carefully chosen for our trip. I attempted to put on a ankle-length black maxi and within minutes the fabric was sticking to my legs. Eventually I chose a pair of jean shorts and a tank top, the only outfit suitable for the humidity and heat but certainly not the style I was going for a night out on the town in Budapest.

Le sigh. What I WISHED I had packed for a night of ruin-bar hopping:

One thing I have managed to master is my accessory and toiletry travel selection. A variety of accessories is always a must-have for long trips. Changing up your shoes, bag, or jewelry can totally re-style a basic dress or outfit. Other travel must-haves? Mascara, lip glosss, and a spritz of travel-sized perfume.

I’m coming back for you, Budapest. And I’ll be prepared next time. Hopefully.

    My husband found this atomizer. It’s literally a small metal capsule with a spray nozzle. It takes up a tenth of the size of cologne bottles. He likes it. Makes smelling good easy when traveling. =)

    Love the dress, btw. very cute.

    The real problem is that there are plenty of fabrics that are perfectly suitable for hot weather and feel more like “normal” fabrics than typical hiking gear, but no one bothers using them. It’s a travesty. A very sweaty, sticky, gross travesty.
