Hi everybody! Happy Thursday! Today’s post is the second of this lovely spring break trip I’m on! These photos were taken in Marrekech during our day touring the city’s palaces, plazas, and open air markets. They have these beautiful tiles decorating the city, and I love how much color there is everywhere you look. There are baskets with spices of every color and woven blankets and rugs hanging from doorways. I also love seeing the food carts – crates of eggs being pushed around in a wooden wheelbarrow and women making bread over portable stoves. It has been fascinating to learn more about the history, meet the people, and partake in some of the local customs (like haggling with the shop keepers, which is quite the challenge!).
This outfit was almost perfect for a day out exploring. I have to admit that I underestimated how chilly it is in the mornings and evenings here, although the sun is strong in the middle of the day. Another layer probably would have made me happier. Mental note for next time. But, the denim jacket was great for keeping my shoulders safe from the sun, and the dress is long enough to make sure I can enter any mosques or palaces without guards looking judgmentally at my knees. The top of the dress is sleeveless, but if you really wanted to be sure of travel versatility, you could opt for one with short sleeves. I love the jersey knit of the dress since it washes so easily, doesn’t wrinkle, and is super soft to the touch. Lastly, I need to rave about these Birkenstocks for a minute. Super cute (I love all of their colored models but think the pop of white is extra striking) and have enough support to make them comfortable for a day on my feet. For me, they’re much more comfortable than wearing a pair of converse to walk however many miles in. If you’re looking for a good travel shoe, I highly recommend.
What do you like to wear when exploring a new city? Any cute and comfy shoe recommendations I should check out? Thanks so much for stopping by!
