Jumper – Asos


Honestly, I never thought I would be into bum bags! I never thought they would go with my style. I found them quite ‘mum like’ and saw them as an easy way to keep your money together at car boot sales lol. As you know, brands are starting to do trendier versions of the bum bag which I am so here for. I first saw Gucci do their version of a bumbag and fell in love! I also love this ‘too cool for school’ way of wearing it across your chest. There is a girl I follow on Instagram who is the queen of wearing bum bags. Her name is Ghislaine Handiri and she definitely inspired me to make a purchase.

I’m not so into the canvas style bum bags as I think they’re a bit too 80’s and casual for me, but I am loving the faux leather ones that high street brands are doing atm. I picked this one up from New Look via Asos and I really do love it. I wanted one that looks cool with more casual outfits but also chic with little tea dresses in the summer! I’m going to be all over that vibe in the summer… a tea dress, Stan Smiths, bum bag and some cool sunnies… can’t wait! However, if you’re used to carrying loads of stuff around in your bad then the bum bag is not the way to go. It forces you to to be a minimalist! I mean, this bag barely fits my phone! So I have to be SUPER selective when it comes to deciding what to put in it. But the freedom it gives my arms is so real! I forget I have any belongings on me and I instantly adopt a carefree attitude lol. How do you guys feel about Bum bags? Yay or Nay?

    I love bum bags! If I had some Gucci monaaayy the blush pink would live happily ever after with me lol! Quite prefer the way you wear it over the chest, looks more chic and gives nice spin to a outfit! – x
