My Little Outfit Guides

MANILA, Philippines  One of my quirks while traveling is to follow an "outfit guide."

This started when I was planning on what to wear for our seven-day trip to Tokyo. Aside from the layers of clothes I packed, there were also different jackets and scarves as not to look boring in photos.

To avoid getting confused with what I'd wear every day, I plotted it out in a little guide! I'd write what top, bottom, jacket, accessory and shoe I'd wear each day.

The outfit guide I made for our trip to Japan. 

It's been a habit since then.

These are usually written on the back of receipts or recycled paper, which I'd tuck in my wallet.

My outfit guides for Puerto Princesa and Coron.

For Baguio.

I'm no fashion plate. I just like to look decent. And by nature, I'd like to think that I'm organized.

But most importantly (though shallow), there's always the fear that I'd end up with clothes that don't go together because I wore everything else that I packed. Concerns, I know.

How do you keep track of what you'll be wearing while traveling?
