Salam Morocco! I’m beyond excited to be here exploring the craziness and chaos that is Marrakech. Whilst here in Morocco, one of the most popular questions on my instagram feed has been “Where are your outfits from!?” This is a pretty normal question for fashion bloggers I’m sure, but for a travel blogger it is such a compliment! So I’m delighted to share with you this travel outfit, all of which was bought for under $100 (including shoes, clothes, accessories and bag, etc.)! Please let me know if you would like to see more outfits + details in the comments below! Shortly there will be more Moroccan posts featuring the places I visited, tours, hotels, destinations, etc. Keep your eyes peeled as this has been one of my favourite trips this year!

I’m wearing:

Charles & Keith Sandals ($50); H&M dress ($12 on sale right now!); Non-branded bag from Lisbon ($8); Forever 21 set of three necklaces ($5); Charles & Keith Sunglasses ($20).

Grand total: $95

Tips for finding a stylish (but still cheap) outfit for your travels:

If you’re heading to a cheaper destination to your home, buy locally and pick up bargains at local markets.

Buy sale stock (this H&M dress was a steal for $12 as old summer stock!).

Shop at H&M; Forever 21; Asos; Zara for affordable buys.

Keep it simple – less is more!

    Dixie relax! Nowadays even morrocan girls are wearing miniskirts, no one cares! Marrakesh is a mix between tradition and fancy restaurants and night clubs. Trust me, I’m european but lived there for 6 months.

    In the Top Tips for Marrakech article, No. 7 – is no miniskirts?

    Clearly, this is what it is, a sponsored post

    Dixie, Thank you for your comment. I too questioned the dress and in fact wrote to ask about this, but as of yet have not had a reply. I too am a seasoned traveler. In fact, we leave for Morocco and Sudan in 3 wks and I am planning to dress conservatively as I always want to be respectful of the customs of the country.

      October 4, 2015 at 1:37 am

      Well, she deleted my initial post! But yes, Pam, you are thinking correctly. In both countries, you will dress very conservatively….just as I am sure you have read all over the internet when discussing “what to wear”. I leave for India shortly and will be doing the same. Enjoy your trip! Sudan…..Wow!! Sounds awesome! I love Africa overall.

    I love the dress, it’s perfect for the destination. And I’m gonna have to say the bag is the ultimate thing just cause is Portuguese 😛 I guess you should embrace this side of blogging 😉 Xx, Regina **

    Morocco will be interesting to read about!

    October 2, 2015 at 11:20 am

    You are truly inspirational! Keep up the good work.

    These pictures are amazing!

    Is this dress appropriate for Morocco? Looks a little short to me. I’m surprised for such a seasoned traveller

      October 3, 2015 at 6:32 am

      Yes, you are precisely correct. It is. I, too, was surprised and found it irresponsible that she promotes to her large audience that it is ok for foreigners to just “dress as they wish” and be so insensitive to VERY conservative cultures.

    I would’ve guessed that your outfit was more than $100 easily! Loveee how it pairs with Marrakesh and I love all the photos that Emma has taken, the architecture and beauty of the city shines through so well!

    What about an outfit under 50 ?! 😉

    I love everything that you post, and usually I’d comment here DYING over your dress (because let’s face it, it is undeniably gorgeous). But today I’m a little bummed! I work in corporate apparel retail as my day job, received a B.S. in Apparel Merchandising & Design, and I’ve been through enough seminars about eco and socially conscious clothing. But it wasn’t until I watched “The True Cost” on Netflix last night that it really hit home – maybe because for the first time I saw faces put to the stories I had heard in school. Massive fast fashion retail chains like H&M are in the ultimate position of power! We love great deals (your $12 dress included) so H&M goes on the hunt for the cheapest possible labor. I know this as a universal truth as here at my own work I’m pushed to keep my costing down, which means we in turn push our vendors to cut cost. We pay $12 for a dress – but thousands of factory workers in Bangladesh & other countries alike are paying a much higher price because the factories are pushed to cut cost and they do (in the form of $2 a day wages and zero building codes). It all seems off topic – your post is beautiful and I think you’re a beautiful person! But I would love to see you post more about local vendors/retailers in the countries you visit and how we (even from home) can support them rather than a big chain like H&M!
    Keep doing what you’re doing and I’ll be anxiously awaiting the next post!

    Hi — We are leaving for Morocco and Sudan in three weeks (end of Oct). I was told to dress modestly and that all clothes need to cover the knees and not to show much bare skin. I’m not even sure I can wear cropped pants. Given your adorable short dress, I was wondering if you had any problems. I’d love to be a little more carefree if I can. I would so appreciate your sending me a reply with your comments. Many thanks. Pam Perkins (aka Biker Chick Gone Crazy)

    I visited Casablanca, Morocco not too long ago and was crazy for the shopping, the architecture, the tile! Your photos brought back fond memories.

    September 30, 2015 at 1:02 pm

    You’re outfit is amazing, can’t believe it was less than $100

    I love this dress!

    I’m obsessed with Dotti and they have similar styles and patterns to the H & M dress. I recently spent soooo much money in that store on a brand new wardrobe for my upcoming Europe trip!

    So happy to see that you’re wearing Charles and Keith! Feeling proud as a Singaporean. (:
