Yalla Habibi: Marrakesh Lookbook!

Hey everyone!

This week I took a short break to Marrakesh... it went super quickly and I wish I could've stayed longer but nevertheless, it was all worth it.

Morocco is a place I've always wanted to explore and I'm so glad I got the opportunity to finally go. Generally, it is a welcoming place with a lot of culture and scenery. Aside from the constant haggling and the odd men who will serenade you with Bollywood songs on the street (or quite simply, 'I want to have sex with you' if you're less lucky), it is a beautiful area to see. 

For the trip, I tried to keep my clothing quite loose and airy due to the climate. I also wanted to be respectful of the customs but when at our hotel rooftop bar, I broke out the bodycon as it was more acceptable. 

Our hotel was situated in Hivernage - a wealthy area full of the best bars, clubs and luxury hotels. Literally, there was a Louis Vuitton store right next to us. I'd often stare in awe at the fashions as I sat and ate breakfast. A lot of women were carrying designer handbags - usually Michael Kors or Louis Vuitton. The fashion was definitely more Western and revealing in our area compared to the Old Town which, expectedly, was more conservative. 

My biggest fashion tip for dressing in Marrakesh is to dress colourfully! It felt so refreshing to wear vivid colours as in London, I'm usually in black or neutrals. 

So without further adieu, here are the pics!
