The Weekly Covet: What's in Our Weekenders?

Jun 25, 2023Jun 25, 2023

Every item on this page was chosen by a Town & Country editor. We may earn commission on some of the items you choose to buy.

From versatile shoes to convenient cosmetic cases, here's what T&C editors never travel without.

Once a week, we ask our editors to share the items they've been loving or lusting after—whether it's a new skincare product we're dying to try or a travel essential we can't live without. Consider "The Weekly Covet" your editor-approved wish list for beauty, travel, fashion, and everything in between.

"I found this Mirth dress online, or rather, Instagram found it for me. Its easy but very well made and just the right amount of tailoring for beach days and long lunches and it arrived in such a pretty package. I've ordered it in a few colors and will wear with colorful Ileana Makri or Bea Bongiasca beads." —Stellene Volandes, Editor in Chief

"It's not exactly a secret that we're Margaux fans at T&C, but I've become a City Sandal evangelist. They are, without a doubt, the perfect carryon-only shoe option: stylish enough to dress up any outfit, but not so fancy you feel overdone pairing them with your jeans and tee, plus the chunky block heel can take on everything from cobblestones to grass to sand without missing a beat." —Lauren Hubbard, Contributor

"Armando Cabral, Zip-Pouch Slippers... they take up very little space and are a treat for the feet!!!" —Darrick Harris, Visuals Director

"I always carry a fragrance in my weekender. Lately, it is the new Aqua Media by Francis Kurkdjian, a summery scent that recalls languid afternoons by the ocean." —Erik Maza, Executive Style Director

"I don't go anywhere without my favorite scent. This summer, that's been the Maison Margiela Matcha Meditation perfume that comes in a perfect travel size that you can throw into your bag before your weekend getaway." —Ana Osorno, Social Media Editor

"There's a reason all the Anthro fans are obsessed with the Somerset maxis: the shape, with its ruched waist and tasteful V-neck is stylish and flattering for some many body types. This summery version with lacy cutwork is perfect for a weekend away—dressy enough for dinner, or even to an outdoor wedding, but still casual enough that you can wear it with sneakers while playing tourist." —Lauren Hubbard, Contributor

"In the summer, I live in my sandals, and my go-to pair is by the venerable French label K. Jacques. Now, I've got my eye on this newer style." —Erik Maza, Executive Style Director

"Instead of packing my cosmetics and more in a million little bags, I've recently started packing everything I need for a trip in this hanging, foldable bag from Tumi. I swear it fits everything." —Emily Burack, News Writer

"When packing light, I always throw in a pair of Vibi Venezia slippers. They take up little space and can easily be worn for a nice dinner out or casual daytime activities." —MaryKate Boylan, Senior Fashion Editor

"I am obsessed with eye creams, I tend to go with the ones that give me a lift and a nice finish. This one helps with puffiness and dark circles." —Dania Ortiz, Fashion & Accessories Director

"With hot summer weekends spent away, a light and airy sundress is a must in my weekender." —Hannah Morrolf, Fashion Assistant

"These dad sandals are essential to my summer wardrobe. They are light, comfortable, and the perfect shoe to throw in my weekend bag to dress up or down for a trip!" —Camryn Harris, Freelance Fashion Assistant

"It's a known fact that travel tends to dry one's skin. I refuse to let that put on a damper on my trip." —Isiah Magsino, Style News Editor

"I get cold quite easily no matter the time of year, so when I travel I can’t go anywhere without a sweater. I love this one from Alejandra Alonso Rojas because the cashmere blend is so soft and the neutral color goes with everything." —MaryKate Boylan, Senior Fashion Editor

"Whether for a short weekend trip upstate or even something longer overseas, I love having my toiletries pre-packed and all ready to go. And I absolutely swear by Paravel's vanity case. It's large enough to fit everything, from mini containers of cleansers to makeup, plus zips completely open so you're not rummaging through a pouch to find things. I can't travel without it." —Leena Kim, Editor

"Whether I am traveling on a long haul trip or going away for the weekend, I like to pack light and take pieces that I can dress up or down with ease. This Senreve belt bag is a gamechanger because I can wear it around my hips or carry it as a crossbody when I am exploring a new city, and then turn into a shoulder bag later on when I am off to dinner. It's really the perfect wear-everywhere-and-with-everything kind of bag." —Sophie Dweck, Associate Shopping Editor

"Speaking of perfect wear-everywhere-and-with-everything essentials, I also like to keep a versatile dress with me at all time. You know, something that you can wear from the museum to lunch to a fancier evening event without the fuss. For those type of dresses, I usually turn to Reformation, which has the best linen dresses around bar none. I usually add a new addition to my wardrobe every summer, and this effortless midi with sweet scallop details (which also happens to be Jennifer Lopez favorite!) is one I have my eyes on for my upcoming European jaunt." —Sophie Dweck, Associate Shopping Editors.

"No matter where I'm headed, I always bring a cashmere sweater with me. My go-to is the La Ligne Collegiate sweater, which is not only made of recycled cashmere, but also has effortless and easy details like dropped shoulders, a ribbed collar, sleeves and hem, and navy stripes at the wrists. It's throw-on-and-go, matches my summer palette, and looks chic no matter how you decide to live in it."—Roxanne Adamiyatt, Deputy Digital Lifestyle Director

"I'm not trying to be a drama queen, but the rollout of the aging filter ruined my summer. How could I reasonably lean into slower days when the thought of looming jowls and broken capillaries is at the back of my mind. I've taken matters (non-invasively, I might add) into my own hands with LYMA's at-home laser, which targets the base layer of skin to address everything from redness, pigmentation, scarring, texture, fine lines, and basically anything else you could imagine. I do it while I watch TV and it's just about the easiest treatment imaginable. It's coming with me everywhere I go."—Roxanne Adamiyatt, Deputy Digital Lifestyle Director
