"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!

Just as the attendees of last week's Coachella have finally recovered from their fun-filled antics Friday has come back round again, meaning it's time for Coachella Part 2!
If we do say so ourselves, we had some major style envy from all of the usual suspects including Kate Bosworth, Alessandra Ambrosio and Kendall Jenner, although they probably saw last weekend as the fashion warm up! This week the trend stakes will be raised even higher and what better way to be ahead than to showcase the Pantone 'Colour of the Year' Marsala in any way possible.
This rich colour, which can be classed as a dark red/burgundy shade, is the perfect way to set off a tan and contrast with the classic boho creams and browns that are often the go-to uniform of Coachella.
If like us you want to stay away from darker clothing now Summer is on the way the best way to display your trend knowledge of this tone is to incorporate it into your beauty look, whether it's a dark stain on your lips or a pop on your nails.
Personally, we think Chanel's Le Vernis in 639 Exception is perfection and flawless way to incorporate this craze into your Coachella wardrobe.

It’s official, New York Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2015 has finally come to an end!
Don’t get us wrong, we love the fact NYC’s Fashion Week ACTUALLY lasts for the duration of a week, but we all know as soon as the final runway has been walked that all fashion eyes turn their focus to our beloved London, however, New York has most definitely set the fashion standard high for A/W 15.
After trawling through ALL the pictures, from ALL the shows (hard work we know, but someone has to do it) we have picked out the trends and after a lot of tough decision making have managed to whittle this down to our favourite five.
Keep scrolling to discover what chic styles you need to be wearing this A/W!

Summer is in full swing - and what better way to spend your holiday than by soaking up the sun and doing a little island hopping?
We love Millie's laid-back glam look and recreated it with our Melissa Odabash gold MO Sandals and eye-catching bracelets. We topped the look off with our timeless Eva hat, giving the outfit an effortless yet polished edge while protecting your locks from the sun.
