Today I learned that I shouldn’t wear my fanny pack in Ecuador. Kim says fanny packs announce to everyone that you’re a tourist and scream “rob me.” Personally I think my kids are just in cahoots because they’ve been trying to get me to ditch the fanny pack for years. Here is a picture of me wearing my favorite fanny pack on a recent vacation:
How perfect is that? My arms are free and yet it has room for all the essentials…a water bottle, sunglasses, my camera, cell phone, wallet and make-up. Plus it even has separate compartments so everything is all organized and handy. It might even qualify as cozy casual.
But I guess since Kim and most of her friends in Ecuador have actually been robbed several times I will trust her judgment, even though I doubt any of them were wearing fanny packs.
