The cosmetic kit should carry a pared back version of the your skincare routine, edited for climate and streamlined to essentials. A deep hydrating moisturizer is key. Simplify the beauty bag without sacrificing a signature look by packing a pigment-rich lipstick. Keep your carryon free of clutter by only packing what revives and inspires: a pen and notebook, a book to get lost in, and accessories that offer choice in an abridged wardrobe. Travel any distance in a chic flat shoe: its fine leather and bespoke details perfected by the hand of a seasoned cobbler.

For a weekend away, you need only one fragrance. Choose wisely and consider floral notes complement any adventure and deepen from day to night. So too, do our essential evening accessories: the silk scarf, the evening shoe, and the faithful crossbody bag. These elements of style mark the escape that a weekend away brings by keeping you untethered to excess.
