She has a drawer full of used passports. She has been everywhere, from Morocco to Mexico, Jamaica to Japan. She lives in breezy kaftan dresses and leather sandals. Her home smells like sandalwood incense. She is the first to jump in the ocean or jump out of a plane. She is the Marrakesh girl.
For trinkets and treasures from faraway places, check out (1) Plateau City’s Swirl Basket ($36). Handmade in Africa, this is definitely a one-of-a-kind gift. For something truly special, (2) Free People’s Prayer Bead Pompom Necklace ($28) is a must-see. It can be worn with everything from a white cotton shirt to a printed kaftan. A copy of (3) Julia Chaplin’s Gypset Travel ($45) belongs on her coffee table. Because she comes and goes so often, (4) Hersey Asktan’s Chintamani Gold Plated Key Chain ($72) will help to remind her of home. The Marrakesh-inspired girl knows that (5) Centerstage’s Halter Color Block Dress ($55) would look just as amazing with sandals as it would with heels. When she is home, the Marrakesh-inspired woman loves to sip chai and read a book next to (6) Neiman Marcus’s Black Moroccan Table ($395). This jet-setting girl will happily use (7) Anthropologie’s Sequined Alva Clutch ($118) as an evening clutch, a daytime purse, and a passport and travel document holder—she is that kinda girl! Last, but certainly not least, even the vagabond needs some downtime and (8) Pencey’s Ikat Print Drawstring Pants ($158) are perfect for those low-key days. Happy shopping!
