Exploring somewhere completely new was one of the most enjoyable parts of our trip to Essaouira, and taking the opportunity to get to know the Souri people and their culture was something which we all found really rewarding. Looking around the Medina across our long weekend not only gave us a wonderful insight into the artisan trades which Essaouira is so renowned for, but also allowed us the chance to discover more about Moroccan cuisine, culture and day to day life, as well as the history of the amazing area which we stayed in. The Essaouira Medina was one of the most inspiring places to visit, and provided a beautiful backdrop for some stunning impromptu outfit snaps:
Jacket- Monsoon Fusion
Tee- & Other Stories
Bag- Vintage (via Rokit)
You might remember this embroidered jacket from my sales round up at the start of the year, and needless to say I snapped it up more or less as soon as I booked my flight to Marrakech! Not only was it perfect for keeping my shoulders covered whilst out and about, but it also added a much needed splash of colour to this all black ensemble. It's piece which I'm really glad I managed to pick up, and is something which I'm sure I'll get plenty of wear out of, both during summer at home (fingers crossed we'll get one!) and for future getaways too. My & Other Stories tee made another appearance here, and I'm so glad I made space in my suitcase for my failsafe F&F trousers as they proved a lovely, ultra wearable alternative to jeans.
