As regular readers will be aware, I have been anxious about my impending return to work.
Being a big fan of handbags – Radley ones in particular – I was over the moon when Radley kindly offered me a bag to help with my return-to-work transition.
I was very generously sent the beautiful Millbank Large Zip Top Tote in Cerise Pink. Structured from the buttery soft leather I know and love Radley for, it is the ideal work bag: professional yet stylish, pretty yet practical, classic yet modern.
The cerise is the perfect shade of pink – bright enough to make a statement, but not so bright as to be brash.
The tote is large enough to fit all these things in: iPad, notebook, purse, keys, phone, Kindle, cosmetic bag, diary, notebook, sunglasses case, umbrella, tissues, and A4 folders (they are resting on the dust bag the tote comes with).
Chiropractors fear not, I will be unlikely to carry this all at one time! All the items that could be fitted in to the bag just shows how roomy it is – yet, as you can see from the photos it is not so large as to look unwieldy.
Inside, there are a variety of different pockets to help you find things easily (ever thought you’d lost something, such as your phone – only to find it right at the bottom of the bag?) and keep your valuables secure too.
The outside of the tote features a couple of slip pockets for things such as travel tickets it is useful to keep handy – no rummaging at the barrier!
Radley’s trademark tag charm comes in the form of removable multi-coloured leather discs.
The tote is perfect for feeling professional and confident for my return to work – and it is very ‘me’.
It is so beautiful I almost don’t want to use it…almost!
Disclosure: Radley generously gifted me this bag. All words and opinions are mine.
