Put it all out on the bed and make outfits from there. Take one pair of flats that go with everything, one pair of flip flops, two cardis, a couple of dresses, tops and trousers. Choose a colour palette and stick with that.

It seems like it is quite warm there at the moment. I would take both dresses and a grey cardy, silver birkies, a pair of ballet shoes and the bag. Are there any other bottoms apart from skinnies?

Ballet shoes (silver or gold) with blue skinnies, top and cardigan to wear on plane. Pack vest, bikini, beach dress, birkenstokes (white or silver), 3 evening tops, and one dress.
Do not pack long sleeved tops or boots of any kind. Remember suncream and have a great time!

I would suggest that your friend choose a colour - say navy and pack outfits around that - so one pair of jeans; cream tshirt; ballet flats; blue and white vests; navy dress; cardigan. Leave the boots at home. One small bag for evening; bag for day time.
