breton striped cardigan - H&M / necklace - vintage, thrifted / black scoopneck tee (worn backwards) - UO / jeggings - Target / socks - Target / boots - Steve Madden
I admit, I feel just the tiniest bit guilty posting these photos - just as it seems nearly everyone in North America has been blasted with variously creatively named snowstorms, I'm enjoying temperatures in the upper sixties on my new balcony in Marrakech. It just doesn't seem fair.
This outfit may not be the most exciting start to my 30for30, but it managed to fulfill my recent modesty requirements while still feeling reasonably put together. I can tell already that this cardigan is going to be a pretty major staple of this challenge - the breton stripes make it a fun classic, and the longer length allows me to play around with a lot of different ways to wear it. My basic black tee is another remix workhorse, and one of the pieces that I included in my last attempt at the 30for30 - I've actually got a whopping seven items in my current wardrobe that I used last time. I guess thspeaks well to my commitment to remixing (or puny budget.... same difference).
Beyond the high contrast of these photos, and of the outfit itself, our experience of Marrakech thus far couldn't be a bigger contrast to our time in Fez. To begin with, there are easily twenty times as many tourists here, so we don't stick out quite so much, and the city itself is substantially more European in character. We're living in the new town instead of in the medina, so everything around us is very modern and familiar, and the weather is sunny and gorgeous instead of cool and rainy. Fez was incredible, but tough - now this seems so very easy, a girl could get spoiled.
I'm watching you, cactus.
