Pre Holiday Outfit Planning!

I hope I'm not alone in saying that I am a serial over packer when it comes to holiday's, I mean who doesn't need 10 pairs of shorts, 8 tops, 3 skirts, 4 dresses and 7 pairs of shoes for a week long holiday!? Apparently this year, that would be me who doesn't need all that. Shame.. I'm flying out to Malta next Monday morning and as we are flying on a budget airline we have to pay for baggage so the less we take the better, because of this I have decided to pre plan my outfits so I only take things I'm actually going to wear and know that everything will go together instead of having a suitcase full of random pieces that don't really go. Smart Char! 
I started out with a massive pile of my 'summer' clothes. Basically a pile of tops and bottoms that can be put together to create some outfits worthy of wearing during the day and in the evening whilst I am away.

Next I separated the pile into piles of tops, bottoms, bikini's and things that could be worn alone.  From there I chose a skirt or pair of shorts then matched it up to something from the top's pile that it goes well with. Once I had created an outfit, added any outerwear and chosen a pair of shoes to go with it I put it together, photographed it on my Ipad then folded it all up together. I started with the evening outfits because I find they are easier to create then from what was left I chose some day time outfits. 
A few examples of what I will wearing during the day and in the evenings. Each outfit is photographed on my Ipad, I'm taking it with me, so that way I know what I put together whilst I'm away.
I hope this kind of helps anyone who has the same packing problems as me!
