Whether travelling on short or long journeys, it doesn’t take a lot of effort to be stylish and to set yourself (and your luggage) apart from other travellers.

Le Sportsac has been around for a while and is known for its selection of creative fabric choices. In my own Le Sportsac collection, my small weekender (black & white checkered fabric) has become one of my favourite purses for travel. It’s lightweight and it fits a ton of stuff. The large weekender would be great for short getaways (or to pack in your luggage for extra purchases picked up along your journey).

Don’t be late for your flight…use this Alessi watch to help you get to your gate on time.

Comfort is really important when I travel. I usually wear my trench, a cozy cardigan or wrap, and flat shoes. I just can’t seem to conquer the task of travelling in heels.

 A notebook is a must-have travel accessory for anyone who wants to jot down notes about fabulous stores, delicious restaurants or inspiring art. This silver journal caught my eye.

    As always, a fab post, Jordana. I agree with your essentials list and I love your curated selection.

    I have a few items that I absolutely love to have on hand when I travel: a pashmina scarf (easily doubles as a shawl or helps keep you cozy on the plane), a slim pen that can slip into any tiny clutch or compartment, Bose noise-canceling ear phones, and a sleeping eye pillow to help me gain a few extra ZZZs on the flight. I find that the eye pillow blocks out the light and calms me from all the buzz on the plane.
    Happy Trails in 2010!

    Jordana,
    As soon as I saw Jordi Labanda, I knew the post had to be yours. We all know that I heart Jordi as well! The other items in the post were also fab! Kudos!
    Shannon
