How To: Plan Outfits for Travel

I love planning outfits for trips. I mean, I love the act of planning (thanks to my crazy OCD) but I also love planning what I'm going to wear. I love the anticipation and I love the memories tied to certain outfits after they've been worn abroad.
I've got ideas/guidelines for four different types of trips.

Crumpled Maps

A couple of months ago, around Christmas, a package arrived in the post. I wasn't expecting anything and I had no idea what it was. I opened the envelope to see some words in Italian and a map of Milano. After reading the packing slip more thoroughly, I realized that it was a gift from my amazing friend, H!

I'd never heard of Crumpled City before, but now I'm obsessed.
The concept of this map is really fun. It's printed on super durable, waterproof paper that won't rip and you can literally crumple it up. The crumple-ability is the most exciting feature because who can be bothered to properly fold up a map before tossing it back into a pocket or handbag? I'll be honest, I do always like to try and fold maps up properly but they always end up tearing in the process.

The cloth-like texture also allows the map to be used as a fashion accessory. H says she's used it as a scarf.

Packing Electronics for Travel

In this tech-y era, we often travel with several cords and chargers and batteries. It's easy to lose track of these bits and bobs (who hasn't left a charger behind at a hotel before?) but if you keep it organized, it's less likely you'll lose your precious accessories.
I travel enough (for work and for leisure) that I have a travel electronics pack always ready to grab and go.
