Travel Fashion Girl is a traveler’s guide to practical and stylish travel gear!


Unparalleled packing lists, expert advice, and a large global community make Travel Fashion Girl one of the top travel resources available. Over 400,000 women read our website every month. Find out why!



About Travel Fashion Girl was created due to my frustrations at the lack of information for women available when I started traveling. In 2008, most packing tips were based around 2 pairs of trousers, 4 t-shirts, and 3 pairs of underwear – a packing list more suitable for a man as most were written by men.

I wanted to create a resource that offered women a more precise and visual idea about what they needed to pack consisting of practical items with a feminine point of view.

In order to create accurate, relevant content I spent over a year interviewing other travelers on the road before launching Travel Fashion Girl in August 2012. 

What began as my personal quest to learn how to pack light on my long-term travels has now turned into the most popular women’s packing resource online. With over 400,000 monthly readers, thousands of women now avoid the mistakes I made when I started traveling. Let me help you avoid them, too!

Alexandra Jimenez

Founder and Editor

Originally from Los Angeles, Alex has been traveling around the world since 2008. After working in the fashion industry for 7 years, a life changing experience in India inspired her to drop out of life and explore the world permanently. She’s been to 44 countries on 6 continents and now bases the majority of her travels around her love for scuba diving. Living out of a single carry-on suitcase, Alex’s nomadic lifestyle combined with her business background gives her a unique packing perspective which has propelled Travel Fashion Girl’s popularity enabling her to live as a digital nomad blogging on the road.
