Hellooooo! I know you guys saw this embroidered fanny pack coming to the blog ASAP. Here it is.
While shopping for my mom’s 40th birthday outfit (WHAAAAAT, It’s on Saturday!) I came across this super chic fanny pack and I had to have it! I have spent all weekend searching for this fanny pack and I can’t find it online at all. Sorry to say that you’ll actually HAVE to go to your nearest forever21 and buy it in stores. Let’s be real. You need it. Update: I found a mini backpack version of this fanny pack in The Gardens Mall. If you’re local to West Palm Beach and love this print but not the fanny pack; get the backpack version! You’re very welcome.
ANYWAY: I’m super into the huge fanny pack come back. You guys know I love trends, they’re so fun! I really like this particular trend because it makes incorporating a third element into your look SUPER EASY! You guys already know how I feel about dressing in the rule of three!
Besides fashion ‘rules’ and whatnot; wearing your purse on you is the easiest way to be practical and super on trend right now.

Let’s talk styling: I recently hauled this matte leather patent skirt from h&m on major sale. BOGO free all sale. I think that promotion is over but the skirt is still on major sale so, HEY! I will say the worst part about working retail is having every sale stare at you in the face until you walk in on your break. Can you relate?
I paired this cami (find it here: it’s $15) from forever21 with the skirt to pull the colors from the fanny pack in a subtle way and I was super into it! I threw on the mesh socks with my gold heels just to add some edge, you guys know how I do! Side note, my heels are on sale and come in three colors:
