I always take far too many clothes and only end up wearing a handful of items. I really want to cut down on what I take this year so what are your tips? What do you take with you?

I always take far too many clothes/shoes even though every year I say I'm going to cut down. This year I'll have to as we are only taking 2 bags for the 4 of us for 10 days.
Bikini's x 6
Day shorts/tops/dresses x 7
Night outfits - I usually take 10 or 11 for 14 nights but will reduce that this year.
3 nice pairs of sandals for the night
4 pairs of flip flops for daytime.

For 7 days my packing would be :-
1 pair white linen trousers
1 pair navy linen trousers
4 tops to go with trousers (add jewellery for evening)
1 dress for evenings if going somewhere smarter
smart sandals for evening
flip flops for around pool
1 x bikini
1 x swimming costume
beach cover up
Whatever I wear to travel there in I will wash whilst away to wear coming home
This is for a beach / resort based holiday, I am know that it isn't dressy in the evenings, we won't be doing much during the day other than lounging around the pool and if we are I can wear the linen trousers.

Pretty much what Snow White takes!
I also take loads of shoes and I live in two pairs 1 for the beach 1 for evenings
I always take a jacket this year a casual blazer, for any chilly evenings ( I get a bit of sunstroke so always feel cold!!) track suit to wear on the plane and wash to wear it back like JB says.
I try to have at least 4 'good' bikinis for a 7 day hols.

That's just reminded me, I usually take about 10 pairs of flip flops! Totally unnecessary really. I'm going to aim to take one pair for the pool/beach and then a smarter pair/sandals for evening.
I've got one maxi dress that I know fits. The other two might be too big since I've lost weight.
I also have a couple of cotton dresses plus another smarter one but again, they might be too big.
I need to get to grips with the whole mix and match thing!

I always take enough tops for every day. Shorts/skirts you can get away with wearing a couple of times by changing tops.
