LNBF Review & Giveaway & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

January 28, 2016

I love doing something positive for the environment.  I admit that it’s not always the first thing I think about when it comes to fashion, but if a brand offers me pieces that are stylish, high quality, AND eco-friendly as well, then I’m totally in!

I reached out to Leave Nothing But Footprints (LNBF) for a collaboration because I believe that they do offer all those things.

LNBF works to minimize the impact that clothing has on the environment.  It was started in 2007 by a team who wants to create a sustainable world for generations to come.  The brand uses bamboo viscose, organic cotton, Tencel, and Modal materials, certified by the OCIA (The Organic Crop Improvement Association).  You can find out all about Leave Nothing But Footprints here.

I’m modeling the Selena Layered Tunic and Suri Full Length Leggings.  Both pieces are so incredibly soft and comfortable!

I love the way the tunic/leggings combo gives an impression of a mini dress/skirt without the actual exposure.

Here I’m wearing the Niki Long Sleeve Top in eggplant. This bamboo viscose is a miracle fabric. It is moisture-wicking and thermo-regulating.  Can I just tell you how comfortable that is for a women in the midst of some hellish hot flashes?!

    It is great that you are showcasing eco-friendly clothing at it's best!
    I think ECO can conjure up images of sack-like style-free garments, ill fitting and misshapen….worn with ugly shoes.
    Here you have proved Eco can be super-chic.
    I am especially impressed that you have taken a potentially boring combination of "leggings and tunic" and made it look sharp and stylish.
    Brilliant styling.

    P.S. thank you for hosting. XXX

    That tunic is very fabulous, Dawn, and have you seen the leggings the model wore with this on the website? Sensational. I've been using bamboo-based fabrics for quite a bit now, and it's feels amazing on my skin, particularly when I'm experiencing an episode of urticaria or SLE. We really ought to support such eco-friendly brands a lot more, they do so much xoxo

    Both outfits of yours are fabulous – especially love the purple colour of the second top. Top marks for eco fashion!! And thank you for hosting, a bit late to the party, had a busy catch-up day as I was away for a couple of days this week…!
