Last weekend myself and two of my favourite people went off to Marrakech for a couple of days (if you follow me on Instagram you'll already know this and it will feel like old news, sorry). Cannot recommend it enough, we got on a very early flight but were by the pool at 1030am (there is no time difference from the UK) and it was at least 35 degrees the whole time. On the first night we stayed in and enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of London and drank our way through a rather larger bottle of vodka and ate in the hotel, but on the second night we headed into the Old Town - which is incredible.
I'd been before and tried to explain to the girls what to expect, which is virtually impossible. The main square is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen - we drank their infamous mint tea and watched the sun go down over the busiest market in the world, watched the calling to the Mosques and then ate more couscous that I thought possible. Luckily, I did it wearing this dress which hides a thousands sins...
shoes, LK Bennett £170
If you've not been, then expect a slap of culture to the cheeks. First up you have the snake charmers, the dentists on the streets (who will knock your tooth out and then allow you to choose from their selection of teeth - laid out on the floor - which one you want to have knocked in to replace it), the monkeys (they steal stuff, FYI) the fresh orange juice for 4p... In a word: amazing. So much so I seem to have forgotten to write anything about my outfit here.
The dress is from H&M's new baby And Other Stories. I've bought tonnes of things from there since it's opened and absolutely love it. Basic concept clothing with a twist - totally up my street. The shoes were a gift from the lovely team at LK Bennett following their event a few weeks ago. I have worn these to death - so comfortable and 100% recommend. They come in hot pink and I'm trying to resist temptation and not buy them... Won't last long.
