Exploring Rabat

Monday, 7 September 2015

I love photos. Especially when photos are being taken of me, there's something about photographs that I just love. My cousin, on the other hand, is the complete opposite, she squirms as soon as a lens is pointed towards her but her heart is content when she's busy snapping away at others. We're opposites but work well together- like yin and yang. We decided to take the train to Rabat and just aimlessly wonder around the city, until we found ourselves in a series of blue and white streets called 'Les Oudayas'. I was seriously fascinated by everything there; every corner, every street you turned to there was a different surprise- whether it be a half blind cat or an old man playing music. Of course we decided to take a couple ahem lot of photos and although I've managed to narrow them down, this post is still picture heavy. 
Comfort is key when you're planning on venturing out and exploring a whole city and although I had a very poor choice of footwear, I just couldn't find my trusty slip ons. My whole outfit is from Zara, the top I bought back in the summer sales and the trousers are actually from the Zara Kids section- I always think that the kids clothes in Zara are much nicer than the adult ones! Sandals are a very old pair (2/3 years I think!) from Dune, there are a lot of stores that have similar styles to these.

Thank you soo much to my cousin for taking these photos, she's an amazing photographer with many other stunning pieces- I think she does have an online portfolio which I actually don't know at the moment but when I find out I'll link it here. 


What do you think of this place? Would you visit if you got the chance?

    1. Ha, we definitely need to arrange a trip to go for the secret blogger girls although that seems near impossible judging by the fact you can't even come to London alone :(( I really love the blue as well, it's much more different and looks amazing when it's super sunny. Thank you, my hair wasn't cooperating that day so I felt pretty poopy but ah ty

  14. Doesn’t that one eyed cat look nice?! I’ve never shopped in the Zara kids section (well as a teenager), I think i’ve completely outgrown their trousers, but I am pretty sure I can find some sweaters that will fit me :) I am also about comfort whether I am walking around a lot or just in general, but I love the shirt (?) - especially the detail on the back

    1. It's really adorable! The Zara kids section is really good, 13-14 size seems to fit me well haha, the sweaters do come up a little big on me so they'll be just right on you. The cross detailing at the back is really cute, I agree!!

  16. Wait, you just somehow took a train and got to this amazing place? Ugh I'm so jealous, in California, you can take a train and be in basically the same place you started! I love the blue in the buildings, especially with your white top!

    Having a friend who loves being behind the camera is great, and so helpful haha! I always jump on the chance to get my photo taken for my blog.

    1. Yep, although this was when I was back home in Morocco- but I can pretty much do the same thing here in London although I won't be greeted with bright blue streets :( California is so beautiful, what do you mean!!! Blue and white really do pair well together, as I learnt that day haha. It's great to have a cousin/friend who is so keen on photography, although I only see her once a year *cries*
