Sustainable Outfit | Cinque Terre - Part 2
Sustainable outfit details: Reformation yellow dress; vintage peaked hat; Lylan necklace; Madam Stolz straw tote; Chanel Ballerinas {gift}

These photos were taken on our last day in Cinque Terre where we explored Monterosso al Mare and Vernazza {see Cinque Terre part 1 here}. I bought this yellow dress at the Reformation shop on Melrose Avenue in LA back in April. I immediately pictured myself wearing this retro dress on the Italian coast. But that’s not the only reason why I fell for this dress. Most importantly, I wanted to talk to you about the brand’s sustainable approach, putting environmental practices and social equity at the core of their business. They aim at reducing their waste, water and energy footprints. You will find a Refscale chart that tracks the environmental footprint of each garment and compares it with the industry standards. My dress, made of surplus fabric in the USA, saved 18lbs of carbon dioxide emissions,  432 gallons of water and 2.1lbs of waste.
Reformation is another beautiful eco-conscious brand that I am so proud to share with you all! When aesthetic meets sustainability, it’s a win in my book!

To cool off, nothing is better than walking your feet in the fresh water. We lied down on the beach dreaming of swimming in the sea, soon this summer.  Below you will find a selection of retro bikinis and one piece swimwears {made of 85% recycled polyamide} from Reformation that would be a perfect fit for an Italian holiday. More sustainable swimsuits here! Which one is your favourite?
