MARRAKECH DIARIES

If I could sum up Marrakech in one word, it would probably be life.
So much color, kindness, humbleness, nature, culture, so many smells and textures and vibrance.

MARRAKECH: RIAD JAANEMAN


 photo IMG_0187JPG_effected_zps74afea58.jpg

Our second home in Marrakech was Riad Jaaneman, a real treasure right in between everything you want to see and everywhere you want to go,
To arrive, you have to walk through some small streets right in the middle of the city.
At first, these streets seem like a labyrinth where you may end up lost, but at the end of the street, you walk through a door and enter one of the most beautiful places you can imagine.
Thank you, everyone, for being so incredibly nice, helpful and for taking care of the most minimum detail.
I take with me not only a beautiful stay but great friends.

MARRAKECH: LE CINQ DJELLABAS

 photo IMG_0101JPG_effected_zps30013502.jpg


Last week, I visited one of my favorite places on earth: MARRAKECH.
As traveling is one of the greatest experiences and teachers, so is everything that comes within, like seeing and getting to know beautiful places and people.
My adventure partner this time was my friend Ana Cristina.
Our first stop was Le Cinq Djellabas, an incredible Boutique Hotel located in The Palmeraie, a few minutes away from the center and all the touristy sites.
It is a great place to get away, relax, but still be minutes away from all the noise.
Surrounded by literally nothing but nature, I couldn't have felt more at peace.

OPPOSITES ATTRACT

I love the combination of black, silver and blue.
At first, I thought of combining this River Island skirt with another pair of yellow River Island shoes (that I will soon show you), but, as I am a huge fan of combining dressy items, or brights colors with more subtle and basic items, I went for my 10 year old converse.

YOUTH

One of the best things you can share with a person is a connection, and when there's a connection when it comes to capturing a moment, your soul, your essence, amazing things like these photographs happen.
Adriana Roslin, a beautiful person, inside and out, came out with this result after a short but nice afternoon we spent together.

Watch: my lovely friends from Mr. Boho

LEATHER PANTS AND TEXTURED SWEATER

Texture is one of the things that can make something so basic as black pants and a grey sweater seem more interesting.
Grey and black is always a combination I love to put together.
The talented Adriana Roslin and I got together in one of my favorite spots to immortalize a grey day in Madrid wearing my favorite grey sweater and pair of black oxfords.

BACK TO BACKPACKS

Leather jackets have always been a basic in my wardrobe. Specifically this Gerard Darel jacket has been a partner in crime of mine for a few good years now.
Something I didn't think I'd go back to using after I finished everything school related, where backpacks, but, here I am.
Never say never... (right, Justin?)
Just kidding...

FALL BASICS



 photo IMG_2068JPG_effected_zps9c58804d.jpg

As most of you might already know, fall is my favorite season. 
The months of October and November especially have this kind of magic that I can't seem to put into words. 
Along with pumpkin scented candles and chai tea lattes, fall essentials are the best essentials. Trench coats, school shoes, and mom jeans are some of the most comfortable, easy yet cool items to combine outfits with.
This outfit in particular is something you can see me wear a little too often in these months.

GIRL SCOUT

Back in the days, at the time that New Jersey was the place I called home, I used to be a girl scout. Dressing up like this made me transfer in time and feel like I could go door to door selling mint chocolate cookies.
After having sushi at MINABO, one of my favorite sushi spots in Madrid, my girls scout outfit and I went for a walk stoping for a lemon pie at one of Madrid's sweetest corners, Mama Framboise.
