Sustainable outfit | Verona - The Pastel Project

Sustainable outfit details: Emilia Burano lace top {made in Burano, Italy}; Freitag trousers* & bag*; Pretty Ballerina flats {old – last seen here & here}

After days days exploring the magical Venice & an afternoon wandering the streets of the colourful Burano, we caught an earlier train to Verona to spend the entire day there.
But first, the question is why is it a sustainable outfit? I was wearing this dazzling white lace top bought the day before in Burano from the familial boutique, Emilia Burano. The entire collection is made in Italy { I love buying #madeinlocal to contribute to the local economy}. I paired it with these classic black trousers made of linen and modal that are 100% biodegradable { #ecofriendly materials and #madeineurope }. I was wearing a pair of pearly grey ballerinas that I’ve had for ages {think timeless and versatile for #sustainability} and this go-with-everything bag {for its neutral colour & double wearability: hand and crossbody bag} made of used truck tarps {Freitag is the king of #upcycling}.
If you’re following my Italy itinerary from the beginning, you will notice that I was wearing the same trousers, bag and ballerinas in my Venice post. In today’s post, I simply switched top and the outcome is completely different! I love the feminine yet audacious look the lace blouse gives to the outfit. I initially planned to wear this white t-shirt instead {that I’ve already worn with the black pants HERE btw}.

Visiting Verona

Verona is a beautiful mix of architecture from different centuries. I loved the ancient Roman monuments like the Arena (picture below) and the Piazza delle Erbe.

I particularly enjoyed the Market square (Piazza delle Erbe) and its eclectic architecture from the red brick tower next to a white building with Greek god statues to frescoed façades.The buildings were all very different from one another creating a strange yet homogenous blend.

After the buzzing city center, we had a relaxing walk along the Adige river. We then crossed Ponte Pietra (picture below) to reach the top of the hill of Castel San Pietro just before sunset.

I highly recommend watching the sunset from Castel San Pietro. It’s the perfect place to get an overview of Verona to end a beautiful day.
