Yes, I know I’m late to the game with this trend, but to be honest I NEVER saw myself even thinking about trying it out because I really didn’t like the thought of it until now!

Belt Bag, Fanny Pack, Bum Bag, whichever you’d prefer to call it, I’ve recently adopted it into my wardrobe… To be fair, when this trend popped up all I could think about was the idea of an 80s dad or some Hawaiian tourist… Know what I mean? But after a year or so the styles that have emerged have got me hooked! I have been admiring them from a distance and have FINALLY picked one up! I decided to stick with a very basic/simple style for my first attempt at this trend to really test the waters and so far I’m loving it!

I do love the versatility of the item and the fact that I don’t have to worry about bringing everything but the kitchen sink with me whenever I’m heading out, which inevitably happens because I practically carry a Mary Poppins bag with me wherever I go. But, I always feel like I’m missing something…

Now, Let’s get on with it! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite takes on this trend from some of my favorite brands!
