#MoroccanMonday look 66

You don’t have to be a gardner/architect/painter to appreciate the gorgeousness of the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech. I’ve been meaning to go for quite a while but never had the chance to until now, and I couldn’t have been happier or more impressed. Everywhere you look is incredible and instagram-worthy, from the brilliant architecture and attention to detail, to the exotic plants and greenery, you just have to walk around and take it all in.

Made by and named after the French painter Jacques Majorelle in the twenties, the Majorelle Garden got even more recognition than his paintings and became an absolute masterpiece. Fast forward to recent years and after being neglected for so long, the garden was then taken over and restored by the late fashion legend Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Berge. It is now open to the public for a small fee and includes a little cute café to get some refreshments whilst enjoying your surroundings. 

 Before we went away I did some shopping and came across this beautiful blue culottes that I had to have. From its flattering fit all the way to the gorgeous colour, it was absolutely perfect to shoot in the Majorelle Garden especially when the pretty blue matches the signature colour of the garden. 

 During this warm weather, particularly in Marrakech, I usually go for light fabrics and oversized pieces. However, due to my height, I either have to wear heels to add some length or cinch my waist to keep me from looking like a potato. This time, I chose the latter, but instead of playing it safe and going for a belt, and bcause we all know I ain’t walking around in heels all day, I opted for this trendy and modern corset with a cute ribbon and straps that give it a daytime attire instead of it being too “lingerie-esque”. 

 The metallic brogues add a tiny bit of height and even more glitz to the look, which also keeps the culottes from taking all the spotlight. Getting compliments on my outfit from breathtaking fashionistas during my visit was definitely the cherry on top!
