A Perfect Day Out in Budapest with prAna and PorTrait

prana influencer promo code


prAna clothing is for people who live fully, play long and travel well - which are the type of people we aspire to be. prAna clothing are known for using 100% organic cotton in their clothing and implementing a lot of fair trade and sustainability values, something that's very important to us. 

We partnered up with prAna (scroll to the bottom of this blog post for a prAna influencer promo code)! We tried out four prAna clothing pieces and the theme was #TravelprAna so we decided to take an outing to our favourite city - Budapest


Along with us for the day was PorTrait Blaho an über talented Hungarian photographer. 


The Perfect Day Out with prAna clothing and PorTrait

One of the things that first attracted us to Budapest was how beautiful it is, the architecture is absolutely stunning and it's just so photogenic!

Our favourite building in the city (at least aesthetically wise), is Hungarian Parliament Building. Built between 1885 and 1904, it's tied as the tallest building in Budapest. (St Stephen's Basilica is the exact same height.) That height, 96m, is important for many reasons: 


Firstly, it refers to the nation's millennium (1896) which is also when the building was inaugurated. Secondly, 96m (or 315ft), isn't really all that high, and as no building in Budapest is allowed to be taller than Parliament (and the Basilica), it means that there aren't any tall buildings in Budapest - another thing we love about the city, no skyscrapers here!

Yet another thing we love about Budapest is the weather - unlike England and Germany, Hungary has proper seasons - super hot and sunny and lovely in summer, super cold and frosty and cosy in winter. 


This perfect day out took place in May, so it was lovely and hot - 25 degrees but the sun was shining so brightly it felt a lot hotter. Our prAna clothes were perfect for this. 


I was wearing the Jasper Green Kornelie Tank and Tanbay wore the Dark Khaki Heather prAna Polo and the Black Herringbone Furrow Short. They were absolutely ideal for the hot weather. Too often we wear clothes that seem like they will work well in sunny weather, but then find ourselves sweating to death (especially me), and that's even before we've started doing anything taxing!


Thankfully, this wasn't true with our prAna clothes, all three pieces breathed beautifully and we could enjoy the weather and pose for our photos without passing out. 


First up we did some couples shots in front of Parliament:

We love taking photos when we travel but it's often so hard to get a good shot of both of us - thus it was a dream come true to have PorTrait Blaho with us, so she took many photos of us that we can treasure forever.


Next up we did some individual shots:

I love how the Dark Khaki Heather colour of the prAna polo matches Parliament perfectly. 


Next up, were my individual shots, my favourite part of the prAna clothing Korneli Tank is the back so we really concentrated on those angles:

Personally, I think this is the killer shot:

All in all, we had the most fun day out ever with PorTrait, we've done quite a few photoshoots in the past but this was by far our favourite. Blaho is so talented with the camera and knows exactly what she's doing, but that's true of a lot of camera people - where Blaho truly shines is in her personality, she's so lovely and nice and made us feel so relaxed. If you're in Budapest looking for a photoshoot we highly recommend her.

We were also super impressed with the clothing, it was incredible to wear something that a) was comfortable and could cope with the weather but b) also still looked good for our photoshoot - finally, the best of both worlds! 



prAna Clothing Review

prAna Polo


The dark khaki heather prAna Polo is made from 60% organic cotton and 40% recycled polyester. Organics and recycling are two ideals that are very close to our heart and thus it is awesome to represent this by wearing prAna clothing that supports our ideals.

Tanbay's thoughts on the prAna polo: "It feels very high quality and 'breathy' in high temperatures and it's also very soft. I love the colour. The fit is also perfect - it's not a loose unflattering fit, but it's also not too slim-fit so you feel like you can move." 


Furrow Short

The black herringbone Furrow Short is made from 53% sustainable hemp, 44% recycled polyester and 3% spandex. We're really passionate about using hemp in clothing because there are so many environmental reasons to use hemp

Tanbay's thoughts: "The shorts are a perfect fit around the waist, I really like that they offer half sizes (i.e. 30, 31, 32, 33 etc as opposed to 30, 32, 34 etc which is what most companies offer). Because of this, it fits really well and I don't need a belt. They are also really lightweight and really 'breathy' like the polo. They also didn't need ironing, which is ideal for travellers like us, who don't always have access to an iron (or time to waste ironing)." 


Kornelie Tank 

The green jasper Kornelie Tank is made from 70% organic cotton and 30% hemp, I've never worn a hemp top before and the quality of it is unbelievable.

I love the back of the top, it offers something really unusual that you don't normally see. The colour is beautiful too and really brings out the green in my eyes. It's super soft and just feels high quality and comfortable. 


It's a rarity to find clothes that both feel comfortable but look good, it's the perfect top to do yoga in, but I would also feel comfortable wearing this to a posh hotel or restaurant. This diversity is an absolute must for travellers, when you have limited bag space it's great to have a piece that works in pretty much all situations.


Ostara Top

I also tried the forest green Ostara Top, it's absolutely beautiful quality and is so snug and warm! It will be perfect in winter.

The Ostara top is made of 53% hemp, 42% organic cotton and 5% spandex. I was surprised how dense it is - but this is an important quality for a jumper to have if you want it to keep you warm. I can't wait to wear it on the plane - it's the perfect mix of comfortable and beautiful.

I really like how it sits off the shoulder, it gives it a really sophisticated feel.


prAna clothing Packaging

My first impression of prAna clothing was 'impressed' because of their packaging, I received a cardboard box and inside three of the pieces were packaged like this:


prana clothing

Aka super simple plastic-free packaging - just tied up with brown string, how beautiful is that!  Unfortunately, the kornelie tank was inside its own plastic bag, presumably because it's more fragile than the other pieces of prAna clothing. I hope in the future prAna clothing will extend their conscious thinking to all their packages.


But, like Tanbay said 3/4 is not bad at all, especially considering the amount of plastic packaging we normally receive when we get parcels. I love that their sustainable mindset doesn't just cover their clothes - the fact that they are clearly thinking about their packaging too shows that they're really serious and makes me trust them. 


And it wasn't just that they were tied up with string, the tags were environmentally sound too - no horrible plastic there either, just a natural string.
