Summer Fanny Packs & Belt Bags Under $100

Today we're getting into one of the biggest summer 2018 accessory trends, fanny packs and belt bags.  I purchased my black fanny pack that I'm wearing in the pic above from Nasty Gal about 4 months ago.  No joke, every time I wear it I either hear "Oh, I didn't know fanny packs were back in style" or "That's so cute!  Where did you get it?!"  So I thought I would do a trend alert/round up of fanny packs and belt bags under $100.

How To Style A Slogan Tank

One of my favorite looks to put together is a simple tee/tank paired with denim and pumps.  I didn’t want a super clean look so I went ripped denim opposed to a classic pair of jeans. If you’ve been following me for a while then you know that I also love to add a pop of color to an all black ensemble.

f you follow my stories on Instagram then you already know I was in Chicago last week.  While I was there I did a little shopping on Michigan Ave and stopped by Topshop.  As soon as I walked in, the handbag table (above pic) caught my eye.  I was torn between buying the pink or yellow bag, or both!  I ended up leaving with the pink handbag and a pair of gold hoops.

How To Wear A Floral Dress In The Spring

'm so in love with this floral dress.  It cinches in the waist and is short, fun, and flirty.  Since it is the very beginning of spring, it's still a bit cool so I paired the floral dress with a pair of knee-high boots.  To remix this look for summer I would wear it with pretty sandal flats or sandal heels.  I thought I would pick up on the pink floral detail by topping the look off with bright pink lips.

Shapewear 101: Everything You Need To Know About Shapewear

Shapewear can be a woman's best friend if purchased and worn correctly.  Imagine walking around looking like the real-life version of your photoshopped self; a snatched waist, smooth lines, and a lift in the derriere. I'm not sure if any woman would be opposed to this.  While we have all hear women sing high praises to shapewear like Spanx, I have also heard countless women say that shapewear doesn't really work like they thought it would.

I am so in love with this turtleneck from Zara.  I saw the pearl detail on the sleeves and knew I had to have it.  I also knew that I would most likely pair it with my black jeans and one of my black heels.  I wanted to keep it chic and classy.  At the last minute, I decided that I wanted to make this all-black outfit pop.  I remembered my blue faux fur stole and was instantly obsessed with the blue/black color contrast.

How To Style A Jumpsuit For Winter

I love jumpsuits.  They're a good starting point for an outfit and it's pretty easy to build upon.  So how do you style a jumpsuit for winter?  Just add a fur coat, boots, and voila you have an outfit.  That's how I styled my jumpsuit for winter but it doesn't have to just be a fur coat.  You can style your jumpsuit with a bold color or print trench coat like red or leopard, you can style it with an oversized leather bomber jacket, or even a blazer.
