    Stoney Clover Lane

    I adore my fanny pack so much that I actually own three. The return of the fanny pack has been one of the highlights of 2020 for me, and I'm so glad that this lightweight bag option has made a comeback.

I am a repeat offender when it comes to using a large handbag and thus feeling the need to use up every ounce of room in it when I genuinely just don't need that many things. The fanny pack life has changed the game for me.
