Firstly, Eid mubarak to all the Muslim readers! May Allah accept our prayers and good deeds. As for the non-Muslims, it’s another #MoroccanMonday look! 😀
Although I think traditional clothes are stunning I don’t really wear them unless I have to (eg. weddings), I just don’t feel comfortable in long garments such as the typical Moroccan jellaba (Idon’t even have one-shocker!) However, on special occasions like Eid, I tend to make an exception and wear something traditional yet modern enough that I can wear it with jeans on any given day. I’m not a big fan of clothes that you can only wear once, especially when they’re expensive.
After looking everywhere, I finally found this mustard coloured piece I liked from Moroccan Touch. To be honest, I would’ve loved some additional embroidery on it to keep it from looking too simple, but I tried to make it work by stacking these statement necklaces (yes, they’re two) which I think did their job in making the entire outfit look more Moroccan.
The minute I decided to feature a traditional piece on the blog I knew I wanted to shoot it somewhere historical, cue The Hassan Tower and the Mausoleum of Mohammed V in Rabat. Despite living in Rabat for over 10 years, I’ve never been believe it or not. I absolutely love how serene it was, probably due to Ramadan, but everything from the beautiful architecture, gorgeous tiles and stunning details, all the way to the Moroccan vibes it gave off, it was absolutely perfect. The photos (AND VIDEO) came out way better than I had expected, and I’ll definitely be going back soon.
