This is a quick way to protect your gear (Fuji's X100/s/t) against dust and possible splashes of water (just mind it's not waterproof!)

I think photos will explain everything ;)

I assume you have a lens hood AND any filter (UV, polarizer/anything) on your camera - filter is very important here as X100 series has one major "sealing" flaw: there is a gap on the front of the lens, through which small particles like sand, dust or water can penetrate camera.
