Never too old for a trend! belt bags & trainers
Belt bags or bum bags? Americans call them ‘fanny packs!’ Call them what you will but belt bags are a huge trend for Autumn. Do you ever feel like you are too old to follow trends? Well get over yourself you are never too old for anything these days !
I love this trend, it means your hands are free but you don’t have anything hanging around your shoulders, unlike cross-body bags. It also means your phone is easily accessible but remains safe at all times. I bought this bag from And other Stories at the beginning of the year. Made from leather it’s very comfy, the belt is adjustable so I plan on wearing it around my waist over a coat during the colder winter months.
I’m sure you have all noticed the chunky trainers around at the moment, my instagram feed is saturated with them. Some are calling them ‘Dad Trainers’ some are calling them ‘Ugly Trainers’ again whatever you choose to call them, they may not be for everyone, but there is a version for you, look at these…
The pair I am wearing are not too chunky and definitely not ugly either. They are sporty and classics without being too out there! I dont need to mention how comfortable they are as they are by Vionic Shoes and surely that name is slowly becoming synonymous with style and comfort? Well it is on my blog!
I am wearing Codie Trainers in white but they also comes in Taupe and Black
Sport Luxe Dress
I refuse to call it athleisure because that word reminds me of tracksuits, which in turn remind me of shell suits, say no more.
This sporty but loose ‘A’ line shaped dress is made from a thick jersey fabric with a beautiful drape to it. The zip keeps it casual, the collar is chic and the length on me is just perfect not maxi not midi but somewhere in between.
Sticking with my new goal of buying less & buying better. I bought dress is from Arket The store is part of the H&M group…but with a difference:
