I’ve been wanting to wear an all-white outfit for some since seeing Krystal from This Time Tomorrow rocking this monochrome look last year – so when I was contacted by luxury bag brand Capulet London to style one of their products by working it into an outfit, I was inspired to wear all white to pair with this gorgeous tote that I immediately took a shine to!

Capulet London sell luxury leather technology cases, clutches and bags specifically designed for laptops, iPads, Kindles and tablets – I chose to borrow the large yellow python shopper tote because I’m the opposite of a “travel light” kinda girl. The tote bag made the most sense for me as I simply can’t condense my life into a small clutch for everyday use. Their ranges have dedicated pockets for iPads and other devices (depending on the style), and the interior of the tote bag was made of the most beautiful, soft orange suede which protected my iPad and iPhone screens. What is very clever is that the large pocket fits an iPad both with and without a case – the case you see here was kindly gifted to me and is made by Proporta, who have tied up with clothing brand Joules to make this pretty floral number in one of Joules’ signature patterns.

While the bag is utterly gorgeous (I love the colouring – it’s described as yellow but is more of a cream with flashes of yellow, plus it smells divine and the interior is both practical and beautiful), the bag is unfortunately way out of my price range: it retails at £629. That’s several times more than I would ever consider spending on a bag… though maybe if I were very wealthy I might think differently?! There was one thing that disappointed me slightly: call me superficial, but if I were to spend that sort of money on a bag, I’d want a little metal badge that showed off the brand name. So often girls – and correct me if I’m wrong, ladies! – want that badge simply to show off the fact that you’ve got a genuine designer bag. And in a way if the badge looks expensive, it’ll make the bag scream “designer brand” much more. Just a little thing that would make all the difference if it were actually mine!

But as I said, the quality of the Capulet brand is second-to-none, and it meets the needs of us style-conscious gadget users perfectly by ensuring protection as well as designer looks.

As it’s the first day of spring [in my world] today, I hope to be bringing you guys some slightly more summery and less wrapped-up looks in the coming weeks… I sure hope so, anyway!

Have a great weekend, everyone 🙂

    I like the gentle colors of the outfit, topped off my the soft fuzziness of the hat!

    Gorgeous bag. And you styled it so good with the monochrome cream outfit.
    I differ with you on the brand's name on the bag. I always prefer no name as I look upon it as advertising for the brand. Which I don't want to do, just want a terrific bag. I will check them out as I want a good new black bag. Thanks for this post.

    This is the best outfit from your wonderful collection.

    Beautiful post, the white is stunning against the rocky landscape. Enjoy the bright surprise in your bag! Reminds me of some of the great looks of the late 1970's!

    Love, love this monochromatic look, Catherine. You glow in it. xoxoxo

    You look spectacular. It's tough to pull together an outfit that's warm and still stylish, but you've hit the nail on the head. Good job!

    I like the metal plates or some kind of name tags on designer bags too. Knock offs can be made so real nowadays, that sometimes you need that badge to show that what you got was real! I love this monochromatic look. It's so tailored and classy and you look beautiful. I hope you have a great weekend! <3

    Love winter white and it looks even better against such a lovely backdrop. The Capulet London products are incredible. I would love the tote and the ipad case!

    So different to see you in non-colours 😉 You look seriously elegant!
    And again, your hair is beautiful and gives your outfit the right "drama"!

    Beautiful outfit and bag! You look amazing and the photos are magazine worthy!

    What a lovely outfit. I would be hard-pressed to put together an all white outfit from my existing wardrobe. My colors tend to run in blacks, grays, and highly saturated colors. But I am now inspired to keep my eye out for pieces that are white.
