Exactly two weeks before flying to Morocco my luggage was all set and ready to go! When choosing outfits, I kept in mind that it was going to be super-hot & dry, and I wanted to bring outfits that were going to be flowy, comfy, and still fashion forward in the Moroccan heat.
So funny story, when I got to Morocco, my luggage was left behind in Paris and wasn’t coming till the next day! With nothing to wear I headed to the dress shops where I found this beautiful Hot Pink Kaftan Dress. On the inside there was a waist sincher that ties around your waist and allows for the dress to hug in all of the right places. The Kaftan dress came about during the ottoman empire and became popular in Morocco in the 14th – 17th century.
Pop & Flowy
For a day of a lot of sightseeing and exploring cities that are the back drop to popular TV shows like Game of Thrones, you want to be able to move freely but still feel put together. Forever 21 is my go to spot for clothes shopping. I found these beautiful tribal print pants that have an elastisezed waist band. I paired it with a white flowy top that was stretchy around the waist. For the pop of color I paired the outfit with a bright yellow straw bag and a pair of royal blue traditional Moroccan slippers which were so comfy and chic.
Support the Local
One thing I love to do is support local businesses and this “Jeva Viajera” shirt is a favorite of mine, the online shop Enviajoa by the couple Mara and Javi are based out of the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. For the pants, they of course have a stretchy waist band with vertical lines that add a slimming effect. The sandals have a criss cross black and white pattern that give the Moroccan vibe, The yellow straw bag was the pop of color that was never missed throughout the days on this trip.
I’ve been obsessed with jumpsuits, and this olive on piece was a major hit for exploring the desert and taking in all its glory. Of course, it is from Forever 21 lol. It had a stretchy waist band and it was so easy to move around in, especially for throwing yourself on the sand in the Sahara Desert! For shoes, I found these super comfy tribal print tennis that had a splash of baby blue to bring the outfit together. The shoes also matched the blue turban on my head to keep the sand out.
Casa blanca Royalness
With the casa blanca being one of the wealthiest cities in Morocco why not look the part, but not spend the money. Im a big lover of prints and mixing them up to create a work of art even better. I paired some bright yellow paper bag pants with a cheetah print body suit to really break some necks. The outfit was one of my favorites from the entire trip. I felt so confident and amazing that people were asking why I had such a glow.
When you are packing for a trip, don’t just throw outfits in your suitcase and not care! Go out and pick outfits that will make your trip much more unforgettable!
