Following my recent spending outburst I stumbled onto the Zara website, accidentally on purpose, and managed to bag this grungy green military style parka jacket in the sale – an absolute bargain at £29.99.

Green parka hood upGreen Parka OpenDanielle in green parka I really like that this jacket has a hood, (hurrah) I have a really bad habit of buying coats with no hoods – not great when you get caught out in the rain with no umbrella! You can also cinch the waist in if you want it to be more figure hugging or have it loose the way I’m wearing it.

What’s even better is that Elle conveniently confirmed that military green is one of the big trends for spring/summer 2015 (result!), so this had to be one of my favourite purchases this week. I just need the weather to get a bit warmer so I can start wearing it properly!
