I'm now back in the country after a jam-packed thirteen days in Morocco. It was quite the adventure! We managed to cram quite a bit into the trip including: a camel trek and camping in the desert, sleeping in a cave in the gorges, meandering (and getting lost) in Fes medina, strolling through the Jardin Marjorelle in Marrakech and experiencing the wonders of a Hammam (bet you can't wait to find out what one of those is).
I've got a few posts coming up over the duration of the week about travelling to Morocco as well as interesting things to do and see, but first I thought I'd begin with some outfit snaps of what I wore when we were staying in Marrakech. We spent the day visiting some of the museums and an old Islamic college called Medersa Ben Youssef (pictured above). I decided to keep things simple but classy with a cropped tee and midi skirt combo, my faithful leather woven sandals and of course, these trusty peeper protectors. I was quite impressed that I'd managed to colour co-ordinate said outfit with the wall tiles of the Medersa (snazzy).
Before I went away, I posted a few outfit snaps of about what I'd wear in a country like Morocco (as the culture is quite different to ours). Throughout the trip I found that (in general) it was good to keep my shoulders and knees covered as a sign of respect to the locals, however I did spy a few people walking around in shorts and strappy tops. However, wearing that kind of thing can be at your own peril as you'll attract WAY more attention than usual - and if you're female you do tend to receive quite a bit of male attention anyway.
That's all from me for the time being. Stay classy San Diego.
