We may be a little late to the game, but w are finally jumping on the waist bag trend! To be honest, when we initially saw waist bags making a comeback, we were a little skeptical because they remind of us the 90’s days when bike shorts and white sneakers were in, but we guess it all coming back these days!
We have been to quite a few music festivals: Austin City Limits, Bottlerock in Napa Valley, and a few other outdoor concert experiences. When you are walking around for 2-3 days in a row, you need a good bag that is practical, but stylish. We usually wear some sort of crossbody bag, just so it is accessible, and we can see it in front of us when we are walking around— nobody wants to get their bag stolen!
Crossbody bags are great, but we have to jump in here and tell you about how Alexis lost her card holder at Bottlerock two years ago. It was the last day of the festival, and we had gotten some food (per usual), and when it was time to go, we got back to our car, and made our way to Target on the way back to the hotel for some snacks (more food, haha).
When we got to the checkout, we realized my card holder was gone! Not a good way to end the trip! We went all the way back to the park where the festival was at and ran into the Lost & Found. Also, make not that we had a flight leaving a few hours from then and we had to still drive all the way back to San Francisco to get our luggage. Yeah, not good.
We checked at the Lost & Found and sorted through what must have been hundreds of driver’s licenses, only to not find Alexis’s. We ran back to the car and panicked because, again, we had a flight leaving, and needed the ID to board the plane! Luckily, we got to the airport and they let us both board since we were twins and on the same reservation— thanks goodness!
Moral of the story is, make sure you’re wearing a bag that closes up fully (mine wasn’t zipped all the way)! By the way, we never did find any of it, and nobody turned it in, so someone is walking around with a very cute card case, haha.
This waist bag from Finish Line is the perfect bag to wear to music festivals because it surprisingly fits a lot in it, and it looks trendy, too! Not mom or dad-ish! We love how the black looks great with any kind of look, and you can totally wear it for summer travels, too!
We know there are a ton of festivals coming up like Coachella, Bottlerock, and one in Dallas. Our favorite way to style this bag is with a pair of high waisted denim shorts with a boho knit sweater like this one.
This one is actually a swimsuit cover up that we paired a bralette underneath, but you could also do a swimsuit top. You could also do a cute boho dress or romper with the bag!
