Bum bags (aka fanny packs) have been around in the nineties, and nobody expected them to be back in full swing this past season. Everyone from stylish bloggers to living legends (looking at you Diana Ross) owns at least one and rocks it on the regular. Despite having seen and fallen in love with luxurious ones such as the famous round Gucci bum bags and ultra chic Louis Vuitton ones, I’m more than thankful that high street brands made us, mere mortals, some dupes.
Ideally, I would’ve bought a red bag to go with most of my outfits, but as I always end up popping into shops when almost everything is sold out, I only found this electric blue bum bag and a baby pink one. Pink is easy to combine these days if you ask me, so I challenged myself by styling an entire look around the bag.
To say warm, I layered like crazy! A tight cotton top is the number one thing I start with during winter and this was no exception, then I added a white roll neck sleeveless top (I would’ve worn one with sleeves had I found it). After that, the white button-down was added to the mix for some coverage in the bum area and added details in general. Finally, my new cosy pastel blue hoodie sealed the deal and I was wrapped up as a burrito.
To add a pop of colour, I chose these funky yellow sunnies that I should wear more often, they make the world a bit brighter especially on a gloomy day. The little grey socks match the scarf and tie everything together whilst keeping my feet warm and toasty.
