Packing Light

Morocco_672x240TS121293940Happy Friday everyone!

How are you all doing? It’s been a while since we last blogged, life sometimes gets a little too much. I have decided to take a break and will be going on holiday tomorrow! Destination – Marrakech, Morocco! I have been to Africa a few times, but never up north. I am very excited to immerse myself in Morrocan culture, explore Medina, try my hand at bargaining at the souks and taste their cuisine.

Morocco is a traditional Muslim country. Even though Marrakech is very touristy, when travelling I am always very aware of respecting cultures, so for this holiday I will have my shoulders, chest and knees covered.

I am also looking to do quite a bit of shopping. I want to bring back souvenirs for friends and family as well as a few pieces for my home, so it is absolutely vital I travel light! Here are 5 outfits I have planned for my trip:

It will be very hot in Morocco, but silk animal print trousers from Zara will keep me nice and cool. This long-line light knit cardigan from H&M will be perfect for covering up when exploring souks.
