A few weeks ago I was asked to take part in the Cox & Kings Holiday Wardrobe Pinterest Challenge. My task? To create a Pinterest board featuring my 10 fashion essentials for a holiday in a far-flung destination. With a renewed love of Pinterest and a serious case of wanderlust, it sounded like the perfect distraction from work. And as the kind of person who makes extensive lists of what to pack before going away, creating a digital suitcase for an imaginary holiday is kinda my idea of fun. Bring it on!
Cox & Kings offer tailor made holidays to a variety of exotic destinations, but the one that really appealed to me was Morocco. I’ve always wanted to go – there’s something magical about all those colours; the piles of spices and crumbling buildings. And after reading Rosie’s post about her Moroccan adventure, I was happy to lose myself in images of markets, fabrics and archways for a while.
Here are a few pins from my board as it currently stands – I decided to pin some inspiration before choosing my 10 holiday wardrobe items. One of the reasons I chose Morocco was the wealth of colour the country has – bright pinks, rich reds, cool blues and tangy oranges are key shades. I also love the sweeping archways and keyhole shapes cut into cool white stone. All these things have been recreated in fashion time and time again and middle eastern style is often a key trend for the summer months. I can’t wait to get started on my packing pins!
Have you ever been to Morocco? Any style advice for my virtual wardrobe? I’m hoping to visit soon – one of many luxury holidays (I wish)!
Hey! This post is part of a competition entry. I haven’t been paid to post it, but I might get a holiday out of it. Plus, some of the links are tracked. Just FYI!
