Canary yellow to cheer us up when it's all grey and dull. And that cool gold pen means you won't risk a lidless biro leaving ink spots in your handbag.

Smythson, £76

2) Aspinal of London, £30

Pretty, slim and clutch-sized. Plus purple was big news on the SS15 catwalks so you'd be bang on trend.

How amazing is this retro schoolbook cover? Makes us actually feel nostalgic about our battered old school text books.

4) Letts, £7.49

Or make some 'ladydates' with this metallic number.


5) Mulberry, £850

7) Anthropologie, £36

Or try a little boho chic with a white leather lasercut beauty...
