I snapped up this essential item from the M&S Mid Season Sale.
Not one to miss out on a bargain, I was delighted to find this suitable jacket for the current sensitive season.
The humble parka is a style staple I’ve been missing from my wardrobe. An icon of the mod era, who can pass up a parka!
Many of my friends are bemused when I mention I’ve purchased items from M&S.
Unfortunately I think it still holds the stigma of being a shop your granny visits to purchase her Royal Jelly.
But personally I’m a huge fan of M&S and believe they create some beautiful on trend pieces which are so well made compared to some of the other high street retailers. Grannies know their fashion!
Light weight for those cool autumn evenings or layered up for cosy winter days, the simple parka is a versatile piece for any autumn/winter occasion. No wonder it was the mod uniform of the 60’s.
Now where did I park my Vespa….
