Sustainable outfit | Burano

Sustainable outfit details: Reclaimed Vintage gingham dress {similar here}; Freitag bag; Lylan necklace; Ilia lipstick; Pretty Ballerinas flats {old}

After visiting Venice for two days, we hopped on a Vaporetto to discover the colourful Burano Island. This place is absolutely charming and you can’t help but fall in love with every little house. That day I was wearing a gingham dress from Reclaimed Vintage (made of vintage fabrics, in the UK – last seen in this post) together with my favourite Freitag bag and a pair of classic ballerinas. The soft grey colours were very easy to match with most of my outfits during this trip which helped me travel lighter while still being able to create different attires. When building a sustainable wardrobe, think of those versatile colours and timeless pieces. The gingham pattern has this vintage and girly feeling I love and consider as a staple in my closet.
For more gingham inspiration and alternatives, below you will find my curated selection of ethically made apparels.

Burano is not only well known for its colourful houses but also for its lace. We visited the familial Emilia Burano boutique where you can shop fine Italien linen and gorgeous lace clothing. Julian got me a dazzling white lace top that I can’t wait to show you in my next article when visiting Verona. Sneak peek here!
