We asked Ella Rose Phillips of Harper's Bazaar what she's packing in her summer weekend getaways. Here is her top 5:

2. Dr Barbara Sturm SPF50 Sun Drops – I have extremely fair skin and this is the only sun cream that doesn’t make my skin break out. I love that it’s not sticky or greasy, so you can layer make up on top easily without it either sliding off or pilling, which drives me mad!
3. A fantastic book – I recently read Any Human Heart and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin and loved them both
4. An SZ Kitty dress! I’d wear it over a swimsuit and leather sandals on the beach and then either alone or layered over white linen trousers with high-heeled espadrilles for the evening. Also looks great with a chunky cream cardigan layered over the top in the evening, as I’ve discovered
5. A straw beach bag – I’m in love with everything by the lovely Nadine at Sicily Bag, whose bags are all handmade in Sicily by a charming man named Luigi. I’m also obsessed with my new Shrimps X Warehouse bejewelled straw bag...
