I spent my first week in Morocco volunteering in Marrakech with kids at youth centres, schools and orphanages. These photos were taken just outside the volunteer riad (house) I was staying at. I loved the orange/red tint to the buildings, and the colourful wall paintings set the perfect backdrop for my version of a traditional Moroccan outfit.
I found this maxi dress in the souks (markets) in Marrakech, and especially love the embroidered detail on the front. Exploring the souks in Marrakech is exciting and stressful at the same time. You have to make sure you are ready to bargain, argue and walk away; by the time I was leaving I like to think I had mastered it lol.
Another thing I discovered, was how comfortable the traditional Moroccan clothing was, especially in terms of the heat. It was basically above 40℃ degrees every day (some days closer to 50), so a loose fitting cotton maxi dress is actually the most amazing thing to wear!
Thank you to my British boo Bethany (wow so many B's lol) for hanging out in the heat with me to take these photos. I will be posting a full Morocco photo diary soon to share more of my pics and experiences.
