On The Side

Let’s be real here, I love a good trend, but I couldn’t get into fanny packs. A quick scroll through Instagram and even while online shopping, showed loads of people slinging them around their waists and even across their shoulders (scratches forehead). I’m  a big fan of creativity so I acknowledged it, stored the style in my brain and let it be. 

While shopping during the Zara sale this summer, I was on the hunt for a new crossbody bag. Functionality and color was on the menu and so far, I didn’t see anything I liked. I kept looking and came across this bag instead. Not something I was looking for, but it was a cheap find (love a good sale). So I decided to put my feelings aside and give it a try. 

I bought it right after seeing how nicely it sits on my waist. Most importantly, it’s different from the traditional half moon shape. The envelope style holds just what you need (lipgloss, phone, money and keys) and this goes back to my summer mantra (we have 19 days left!) of less is more when you’re going out. 

Moral of the story? Give fashion a try at least once. You might be missing out.
