Unless you have closed your eyes while reading magazines or walking around the shops lately you will have noticed that Safari jackets are EVERYWHERE !!
This time around we are seeing hints of leather to give it a 2012 edge.

As you can see Miley Cyrus, Cheryl & Jessica Alba are all rocking the trend.
Last year I managed to avoid the whole Parka thing as I honestly thought it wasn't me, being the girly girl that I am... BUT this year I decided I wanted to be on trend so I bit the bullet & tried the Parka's hood less, less lined & less furry cousin.. The Safari Jacket(minus the leather sleeves) and guess what ? I loved it that much it came home with me!!
I got this one in New Look (the Internet pic doesn't do it justice) for 45euro quite pricey but considering the dreaded W word (cough WINTER cough) is coming up I decided it would be a good purchase. OOTD to follow when I decide what the hell to wear it with!!
Lord knows why it is showing up this colour but I promise it is as Khaki as Miley & Jessica's in the pics above!!
