black-fur-vest-with-camel-turtleneck-leather-leggings-and-over-the-knee-boots-red-ysl-bag-how-to-wear-fur-vest-with-leather-leggingsI know it shouldn’t come as a surprise, but when I looked at the calendar this morning, I did a double take—is Christmas really next weekend?! It always seems to sneak up no matter how early I decorate or start shopping for gifts. This is basically the only time of year when I wish time would slow down! My husband and I scheduled our trip to Poland last week specifically to enjoy the holiday season in Kraków, and it was nothing short of magical. As promised, I’m sharing more photos from our trip at the end of this post, so keep on scrolling after my outfit details.black-fur-vest-with-leather-leggings-and-suede-over-the-knee-boots-black-fur-vest-with-camel-tan-turtleneck-outfit-holiday-outfit-with-fur-vestReal or faux, fur vests are great to use for layering underneath your coat when the temperature really dips, which is what I did here (I only removed my coat for photos and it was very cold!)black-fur-vest-with-camel-turtleneck-ugg-fur-gloves-saint-laurent-high-school-satchel-oxbloodI’ve mentioned it on here before, but this vintage vest originally belonged to my husband’s grandmother. When I inherited it, we had it sent off to be resized at a repair company in New York which specializes in fur and leather and it’s now one of my most prized possessions.black-fur-vest-with-leather-leggings-and-suede-over-the-knee-boots-black-fur-vest-holiday-outfit-red-ysl-high-school-bagvintage-black-mink-vest-camel-turtleneck-ugg-fur-cuff-gloves-holiday-outfit-with-fur-vestsaint-laurent-high-school-satchel-stuart-weitzman-highland-black-over-the-knee-boots-ugg-fur-cuff-leather-glovesThere’s nothing quite like a pop of red to give any outfit a holiday feel, no?

Christmas Market in Kraków, Poland

main-square-krakow-poland-travel-blogger-things-to-see-in-krakowThe main square located in the center of Kraków is where all the tourists and locals alike gather to browse for handmade gifts and and eat traditional Polish food. It’s quite similar to the piazzas you find all over Italian towns, but much larger and more open.christmas-market-krakow-poland-candychristmas-market-krakow-poland-food-to-eat-at-christmas-markets-in-poland-traditional-polish-foodThis stand first drew me in with its lovely decor and beautiful display, but it really became my favorite after I tasted the homemade garlic butter bread.grilled-bread-christmas-market-krakow-polandShould I be ashamed to admit I singlehandedly devoured this entire gigantic piece?! What can I say, I love my carbs.mountain-cheese-polish-food-christmas-market-krakow-polandAt first glance, these look like pieces of cornbread, but they’re actually pieces of cheese!grilled-mountain-cheese-christmas-market-krakow-polandThe cheese is grilled to perfection and served plain, topped with cranberry sauce, or wrapped in bacon. I most definitely ate a few of these every day!fried-pierogi-christmas-market-krakow-polandCan’t forget about pierogi, one of Poland’s most well-know specialties—even better when fried! You can find them with all kinds of fillings, but our favorites were the traditional cheese and potato, meat, and mushrooms with onion.rose-jelly-donut-krakow-poland-things-to-eat-at-christmas-in-krakowDessert (or breakfast in this case) could be a donut filled with rose-flavored jelly—yes, you read that correctly—the only way I can describe it is that the filling literally tastes like the scent of a rose. I know that sounds bizarre, but it’s actually delicious!mulled-wine-polish-christmas-market-what-to-do-eat-and-drink-at-european-christmas-marketsMulled wine (grzaniec galicyjski in Polish) is the most popular beverage you’ll find at the market, and we were excited to try the Polish version after enjoying it last Christmas in Germany. It’s served hot, which makes it the best way to warm up while wandering around all the vendors.

Overall we had a wonderful first experience in Poland and definitely recommend Kraków as a destination for anyone visiting Europe (especially during Christmas time!)

    Love this black fur vest and camel turtleneck outfit. You said that you wore a coat with this outfit because it was so cold. Would like to know what coat you matched with this look and if you have any pic’s that you could post of the entire look including coat. Thanks!

      Unfortunately I don’t have any photos wearing the jacket as well. The coat was honestly nothing special–just a black parka!

        Thank you for replying Meagan. I have a nice long parka with a fur hood that I have been using a lot lately since our temps have really dropped. Hope yours had a warm hood as well. Hope you have a lovely Christmas.
