A Handbag for the Organised: The L.K.Bennett Pearl

L.K.Bennett Pearl Nappa Leather Organiser Tote

You know you are truly in love with a bag when you open up your photo stream and there are over thirty separate pictures of it! I did laugh when I scrolled through my recent photographs to find L.K.Bennett’s Pearl tote “posed” in various locations; Pearl Tote with Watering Can, Pearl Tote on Wooden Floor, Pearl Tote on the Woodpile…

Seriously though, this is one very lovely handbag – the pastel yellow leather is spot-on for a summer tote and the heart-shaped quilting is just beautiful. Both ladylike and cute at the same time – smart enough for work but gorgeous to wear with low-key jeans-and-a-t-shirt at the weekends.

There are different organiser sections inside, which are invaluable for those who like to carry around lots of notebooks and bits of paper and pens and so on. The whole thing feels very secure, with a roomy central zipped pocket and flatter pockets on either side that are perfect for keeping papers flat or storing an iPad or Kindle. I managed to fit a pair of heels (just about!) in the central pocket, along with my keys and some makeup. In the side pockets: my organiser, a Kindle, a notepad, a wallet, some Jelly Babies (as you do) my iPhone and some sunglasses, though I had to slip the sunglasses into a little fabric sleeve rather than carry the bulky case.

In short, I managed to squash in just about everything I’d carry in a larger bag, I just had to be a bit more disciplined about how I packed it all up.

So yes: a brilliant bag for pretty much anyone, whether you’re jet-setting back and forth to transatlantic business meetings or popping down the road for a quick lunch. I’m about to test it out as a baby-changing bag and add another use to its list – I’ll let you know how many nappies and wipes I can fit in! If I can find an ultra-thin changing mat that folds down into one of the outer pockets then I’ll be a very happy lady indeed…
