Little Black Book: Cabbages In Marrakech

The city of Marrakech evokes visions of mysterious alleyways that map the city like a latticework, of

glorious swathes of colour, and, best of all, non-stop sparkling sunshine. With a flight time just under

four hours, Marrakech is the perfect place for sojourning somewhere delightfully quick. We had five

days in radiant Marrakech and this is what we did:

Naturally, first on our list was exploring the beautiful maze of souks. You can spend days on

 end poking into every nook and cranny....yet it is nigh on impossible to happen upon the same place 


The souk is a magpie's delight as there are many shiny objects to distract the eye. It is also the 

perfect place to purchase rugs, baskets and other textiles.The key to souk success is 

don't be shy!

When we wanted a break from the hustle and bustle of the souks, the Yves Saint Laurent Museum 

was the perfect refuge. It was absolutely inspiring to see Saint Laurent's work up close and personal. 

The YSL Museum was also perfectly positioned for exploring the wonders of the Marjorelle 

Gardens. Another gem we stumbled upon close to the gardens was a charming boutique we found 

called 33 Rue Marjorelle.

When fatigue set in whilst on our walkabouts, we retreated to an oasis in the form of a hidden 

rooftop to sip refreshing mint tea...

....and a seat poolside wasn't bad either. 

What We Wore:

 Dominique Dress

A multi-tasking superstar, Dominique was perfect for jaunts around the city as well as a non-

traditional poolside cover up!

 Dottie Dress

We adored Dottie on holiday, she's the perfectly simple dress for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

 Lola Dress

A delicious all-in-one outfit and one of our favourites to sip mint tea in! 

 Roman Tunic

Our Roman Tunic was perfect for throwing over a pair of jeans for a casual stroll through the 

Marjorelle Gardens. 

 Una Dress

And there was nothing more delightful than our jersey linen for keeping a cool head in

Morocco's warmer climes. Una folds into a tiny square  

which left more room in our luggage for all the treasures we brought home.
