By the time this blog post goes live I’ll be in Fez, Morocco, to experience the new Namasté yoga package at Hôtel Sahrai. It’s definitely one of the most exciting press trips I’ve been invited on, over the course of my 13 year blogging career, as I love yoga and it will be my first time in Morocco (and Africa!).
I’ll be sharing lots about the trip next week. But, in case you’re curious, here’s a look at some of the pieces I’ve packed for 72 hours in Morocco…
The temperature in Morocco is currently sitting at around 34 degrees celsius, during the daytime. So I packed a small edit of breezy, cotton pieces for the rare moments when I’m not dressed in activewear or lounging by the pool.
Next’s lilac wrap dress will also work for dinners at the hotel, as I can easily dress it up with heels and a clutch bag.
The purpose of our visit is to experience the new Namasté yoga package launching at Hôtel Sahrai, so I packed a handful of leggings and an assortment of bra tops. I’m doing some work with Sweaty Betty this season, and they kindly sent over a few pieces for the trip. The jersey “gratitude jumpsuit” will be ideal for meditation sessions with our teacher, Yogidille.
I didn’t pack many shoes or accessories, as for the majority of our time in Fez we’ll be doing yoga. But I slipped Monsoon’s statement macramé bag into my suitcase for our evening events, which will be a bit more formal. And during the day I’ll just be switching between Nike sneakers (for our walking tour of Fez) and Joules’ leopard print sandals.
As this is just a short break, I only packed one book (which will mostly be read on the outgoing and return flights, as our itinerary doesn’t leave much room for reading). The Leavers by Lisa Ko had been on my “want to read” Goodreads list for months, and I waited until our flight to start it.
I packed a large bottle of Avéne SPF 50 to apply each morning, and top up throughout the days. But, when we’re out and about, I have the Sol de Janeiro My Sol Stick SPF 50 on hand for touch-ups.
I’ll be posting about my time in Fez next week on the blog, but in the meantime you can see what I’ve been getting up to over on Instagram. I’m @cocosteaparty.
