  • Over the summer I had the absolute pleasure of visiting the beautiful country of Morocco. We took literally thousands of photos, as every step, turn, and street were pure aesthetic captivation. Trying to go through all of the photos and narrow them down to share on my site has been a daunting task but I’m finally finished. I hope you enjoy the little glimpse into my Moroccan dream.

  • Wandering through the endless souks in Marrakech is a Morocco must. I came home from the trip with a beautiful rug (make sure to bargain), all kinds of spices and a silver carved platter … among many other things.

  • The stunning details at the Dar Menebhi Palace (also now the Marrakech museum) in the city center.

  • Probably my favorite place… the spice market. This place is incredible, they spent forever teaching us about every spice, and amazing healing remedies like eucalyptus and more. Came home with so many wonderful spices!

  • Clothing: Before I went to Morocco many people were warning me and advising me on what to wear, especially being a blonde American in the city. “No shorts, no bare shoulders, etc.” Of course it is an extremely conservative culture, but at the same time becoming very modern and westernized. It was very hot so even though I would wear shorts I would always bring a scarf or long kimono with me incase I visited a mosque or just wanted to be a bit more respectful walking through religious areas etc. I wore long skirts and tank tops/crop tops on most occasions and was completely fine and accepted.

    The verdict: People make much more of a big deal about it than it really is. Wear want you want, just be respectful about it.

  • Found this old vintage belt, perfect with my Moroccan Simone Harouche bag.

  • The medina, the main square in Marrakech.

  • Moroccan soda.

  • Comptoir Darna- a MUST visit restaurant in Marrakech. I even joined in on the belly dancing!

  • One of the absolute highlights of the trip- visiting the Fantasia Borj Bladi show. It’s about a 30 minute drive outside the city, they have a car come pick you up and you are transported back in time to a beautiful (medieval style is the closest comparison I can come up with) type of show.

    You are served an abundance of food by a whole team of performers, chefs, dancers and artists. They put on beautiful dance shows, horse races, henna, camel riding and more.

  • Long skirts- were my easy go to look in Morocco. Nice because they are loose and light, but also cover up your skin incase you’re a bit apprehensive about being too bare. (but see I’m okay in my crop top)

  • The Valentino bag couldn’t have been more perfect for the trip.

  • With my Moroccan partner in crime- Rumi!

  • Rug shopping- I found a beautiful rug that now in my home and a constant reminder of a beautiful trip. Yes I had to buy an extra suitcase to bring it home, but it was worth it.

  • Wearing colorful Dannijo jewels, and long Reformation dress- the perfect Moroccan look.

  • Can’t skip out on a spa day and the traditional hammam. We spent a beautiful day at the Four Seasons Marrakech.

  • Wearing Mara Hoffman dress, Chloe shoes and Valentino bag.

  • We took a day trip to visit the seaside town of Essaouira, as we drove the 2 and a half hour drive to the ocean most of the scenery was farming landscape.

  • Yes these photos are real, and not photoshopped. I had seen similar pictures and I said there’s no way I would believe it until I saw it with my own eyes. And I did! Wow- the goats eat the nuts from the Argan tree and climb high up onto the branches to do so. This little guy was just a few days old and like Bambi could barely walk around.

  • Streets of Essaouira

  • If you watch Game of Thrones you may recognize Essaouira as the show has been shot on it’s historical cliffside castle-like walls on numerous occasions. A fortress once enclosed the city in the mid 16th century, and many of it’s walls still remain.

  • Now mainly a fishing harbour the seaside is covered in little boats and seagulls.

  • I really hope you enjoyed Morocco through our eyes. Thank you to everyone who made this trip so special, all the beautiful people we met along the way, The Pearl Marrakech Hotel, the Four Seasons Marrakech, Borj Bladi, new friends and of course the Moroccan Tourism Board.

    Just gorgeous pictures! I went to Marrakech in the summer as well, like right after you were there and loved all the tiles, the market, the heat, it was gorgeous; but it’s so poor as well, we westerns need to help these people, I found it very sad as well as it’s such a beautiful country!

    Love,
    Whitney
