"Rich warm shades combined with neutral crochets & versatile peasant blouses make up my Italian holiday wardrobe, whilst multi-task beauty & skincare products make getting ready for relaxed, al fresco dining care free and easy. I'm never without a pair of my go-to sandals which take me from beach to bar with a luxe patent finish and the Jemima is the ultimate wide-brimmed sunhat to complete a chic Italian riviera look."

Before the Made In Chelsea style blogger jet sets across Europe throughout the summer, we find out what's in her Travel Tote to master the ultimate beach style!

1. Melissa has released a debut handbag collection for SS15, which will you be rocking on the beach this year?
The Zig zag pouch - it’s the perfect accessory for that beachy vibe but I’ll be taking it to music festivals and bbq’s too!
2. What Sun-seeking destinations can you look forward to?
I’m off to a little island off of Singapore to film a t.v. show soon and I cannot wait to live on the beach!
3. In case you lose your luggage at the airport, what emergency items do you make sure are packed in your travel holdall?
I’ve learned the hard way to always pack the essentials in your hand luggage, so – a black bikini (this color looks great on your first day when you’re not tanned yet), this Summer I’m wearing the Martinique Bandeau and pairing it with the Jessica cover up in Navy. Big shades from Anine Bing, Lancome Imanance Tinted Moisturizer with SPF so my skin is still protected; and a good book - right now it’s The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.
4. Post-flight beauty – how do you refresh your skin after a long flight?
The failsafe trick - splash some cold water to awaken the skin and then use a gentle exfoliator (I love Kate Somerville’s) to scrub away all the "yuck" from travelling. If I have time, I’ll throw on Eve Lom’s Moisture Mask while I unpack – a good way to multi task! And then apply a thick cream to sleep in, like Sisley’s.
5. What’s on your wish list from the Melissa Odabash SS15 Collection?
The Melissa dress in yellow knit looks very sexy – I have known Meli for 10 years and she knows how to make a woman feel sexy! I also love the new sporty vibe of her designs like the Bali bikini.
6. Hotspots for your upcoming trip to Singapore?
I have no idea yet, all to be discovered! But I did visit Bali last year and can highly recommend morning coffee and book browsing at Drifter, learning to surf on Seminyak beach, Potato Head for dinner at sunset and Favela for late night cocktails and dancing!

Today is the ultimate FRIYAY!
We've all worked a four day week and for all the music and fashion lovers out there this weekend gives us the excitement of the first key festival of the year - Coachella.
From this afternoon countless celebrities, models, actresses and musicians will travel up to the Empire Polo Club in the Colorado Desert, California to party hard and watch an impressive line-up that includes Alesso, Duke Dumont, Drake, Clean Bandit, Florence and the Machine, Kasabian and Royal Blood - jealous much?
However, Coachella has progressed from being just about the music, it's also all about what you wear.
With Kendall Jenner, Alessandra Ambrosio and Rosie Huntington-Whitely setting the styles bar high last year it's important to make sure you nail that key boho-chic look if you are one of the people lucky enough to be attending.
(See our Festival Fashions guide posted a couple of weeks ago if you need any last minute inspo!)
To channel a cool and yet effortless festival look, we are without a doubt that Flash Tattoos are the way forward. Seen on the likes of Beyonce, Khloe Kardashian and Coachella Queen Vanessa Hudgens these jewellry-inspired tattoos come in a variety of styles and will help add that cool factor to your outfit.

Well, that was short but sweet!
London Fashion week has now been and gone and as the cobbles of Somerset House breathe a sigh of relief that they will no longer be clomped on by heels all day, and night, we have spent the day deciding what fashion delights we wanted to share with you.
In the style stakes London definitely knows how to cram a lot of content into a very short space of time, with the constant stream of shows our Instagram's have hardly been able to cope with the about of pictures flooding onto our news feeds and our constant refreshing so that we can see the trends as and when they are shown.
The past five days have made us very proud to be British and below we proudly present our top five trends of the last five days, and for the record, it was pretty tough having to narrow these down!

Some of the most chic graphic prints have come from Mother Nature herself. Playing with spots, scales and various reptile prints, Melissa incorporates an ultimately fierce tribal trend within her collection with these timeless exotic pieces.
