Are you looking for ethical travel outfit ideas? The Look is a section to highlight european brands highly committed to sustainability and an inspirational mood-board for your next modern conscious traveller look!
Within this section I put a spotlight on practical and light pieces that you can easily use for both day and night looks, always in the spirit to pack light luggage.
While writing this issue I am dreaming of warmer days, light dresses and medium heel sandals. I selected these pieces shortly after having interviewed the owner of the Hotel Signum in Salina, so I was inspired by the Aeolian island’s vibes.
Wearing this outfit while having an apero on the Hotel Signum terrace or taking a stroll among the tiny streets of Malfa you will feel fabulous.
