This was one of my favorite spots that we toured in Casablanca. It's the main mosque and actually one of the largest in the world (according to our amazing guide, Hassan!). It's not that old of a structure but the architecture still has all of the breathtaking arches and ancestral details and really captures the wonder of the culture. I didn't get to go in because we stopped along the way home and I wasn't properly covered. We are thankful to be here as guests of the Morocco Tourism Board, and to check out Casablanca Fashion Week, and everyone has been so gracious here!
I picked up these booties in the local Casablanca Zara because I couldn't the right tan pair at home in time for the trip. It's the perfect balance between a heel and a flat and is great for their climate right now. Finding room in my suitcase for them (and the over-the-knee boots I bought here) will prove difficult but definitely worth it.
So much more to share! I feel like I have pictures for days from here and Oualidia! <3
*For those looking for controversy, I did not go to the mosque in shorts. I'm well aware of the cultural significance which is why you see no pictures of the inside. This is what I wore touring part of the city. Please no comments about "why I wore shorts to a mosque". It's simply a beautiful backdrop as we passed by and I'm pointing out its beauty. Thanks!
