Zara just made supermarket shopping a bit cooler

Whip out your groceries list, it’s time to shop

Whip out your groceries list, it’s time to shop

We’re all for re-usable shopping bags, especially as it means there are far fewer plastic bags littering our planet. But we must admit they’re not always the most stylish (blue or orange bag anyone?).

And don’t get us started on having to fork out for a new one every time we forget ours at home. Yes we know 5p is cheap, but it doesn’t solve the problem of not being able to shut your kitchen door due to the sheer amount of bags hanging behind it.

But yet again, Zara has come to the rescue, thanks to a tote bag that will make your weekly trip to Sainsbury’s a little more special.

Shop now: Jute Tote Bag for £9.99 from Zara

It’s very simple, a nude jute design with black handles and the Zara logo on it, but we can all agree we’d be happy to carry this one around all day. ready to whip out at the checkout.

Once again Zara, we thank you.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
