Work Trip to Marrakech Packing List

I chose clothing based on the following criteria:
1. Culture (no bare shoulders, low cut neck lines, or skirts above the knees)
2. Comfort–since you will probably be on your feet a lot I chose shoe options with low heels.  I think you could get away with one cute pair of kitten heels and a low heel boot.  I prefer a pointy toe vs. a round because it lengthens the leg and is slimming.  Both shoes look great with pants, skirts or dresses.
3. Weather–it will be raining the first couple of days that you arrive and then around 72-75′ day high and a low of 54′.
Everything I have included is from stores that you can go to or purchase on-line (Banana, JCrew, Nordstrom, Bloomies, Macy’s, Express). And everything can be worn multiple ways with multiple pieces. I included a couple blazer options and bolero cap sleeve sweater those items can be interchangeable.
For your packing list I would include some of the following:
1 pair of kitten heels ( i like leopard which you should think of as a neutral with a little bit of pow)
1 pair of black boots or low black heels
1 pair of tennis shoes
1 jacket ( i love a trench because it is classy and looks good on anyone)
1 cardigan or bolero type sweater in a neutral (black, gray, camel)
1 black blazer
1 black pant (hemmed so they can accommodate kitten heels) –i like Express suit pants they fit well and come in 3 lengths, and are a good price point.
1 gray pant
1 camel pant
1 sheath dress ( if you bring the white one you got from Banana you will need to wear a shirt with sleeves under) i paired with a lavender button down, black boots and tights.
1 party dress
1 pair of dark denim skinny jeans ( i like paige)
1 pair of neutral colored skinnies( gray, camel, ox blood)
5 tops to wear with jeans after work–depending on the situation you may be able to wear some of the work shirts with your jeans
5 Chunky statement necklaces
3 chunky statement rings
2 statement bracelets
2 scarfs/pashmina one with color and one that is black and white or neutral that work to accessorize but also can provide additional warmth
1 work purse
1 cross the body purse for going out after work
