When I travel, I find myself waffling between the need to look presentable upon arrival and a wish to be incredibly comfortable en route. As a personal rule, extreme comfort can only be achieved with an elastic waistband. With that said, I’ve tried to allow my adult tendencies to take over when I fly: pack lightly, dress properly, and enjoy a strong drink.

I’ve been eyeing this Jack + Mulligan weekender to charge my carry-on essentials into high gear, like (the best airplane snack ever) Haribo Gummies and my retro Nikon camera. I’m really set on these neutral separates from Topman, which I scored from Nordstrom. Did you realize that Nordstrom sold Topman? If not, you’re in luck because now you can walk in and try on physical Topman products at your local Nordstrom!

I scored these chinos, shades and beanie from Nordstrom on my last trip to Los Angeles. Now, I’m getting the chance to test drive them this weekend on my way to Italy (more details to come)! Would you wear this look?

  1. I hope Nordstrom’s selection of Topman isn’t like The Bay’s here in Canada: they don’t even carry XXS!

    I am such a fan of the neutrals though: simplicity is my end-game after a long bout of buying things only to be comfortable in wearing them once.
