Packing or BC/Spring trip

So, today we are going to visit friends and family in BC! Dallas (my husband) is already there as he is also on a work trip and I am flying to meet him with the kids. The weather in BC is typcial temperate "spring" weather.  Probably about 15 C.  So not summer clothes but maybe warmer than here.
So, without further ado, here it is (a lot of this stuff you've probably seen in other fave or haul posts and that's because my top tip for packing is to MAKE SURE you know and love the pieces you are pacing and how they mix with the rest of your choices so you aren't stuck with a bunch of weird stuff that doesn't match, fit right, flatter you, etc.):
About to get on plane--in no order--this is only hair product I had to bring.  Dry Shampoo is life!

Magazines. Duh!

The mess before i begin packing.  I start setting aside things I want to bring at least a week ahead. And of course laundry! Gotta have all you necessities clean!

Lists, lists...

And more lists!

Rain jacket, neutral scarf, "fancy" leather-look sweatshirt.

Of course!

Plain grey v-neck Old Navy tee.

Joe Fresh, tight turtle neck.  Makes my boobs look big! I wear it with:

Grey pencil skirt and tights.

I roll things to pack them for the most part,  Here I added a pair of PJ's, and a white and blank tank top for under stuff.

Don't forget: undies and socks! And of course big, ol' control top undies for skirts and dresses.

Black skinnies.

Work out wear.  I can also wear these tights as real pants *in a pinch*...

Saddest bathing suit ever.  Getting a new one on this trip (also need rain boots and runners).

Small amount of jewelry: rose gold watch, large pendant necklace in white turquoise, statement earrings, 2 small necklaces.

Beauty! And nasal spray for my super-fun allergies! (Even brought some hair chalk--why not?)

Toilettries! Close ups below:

Paisley dress with super thick leggings so I can bend over or crouch down in peace.

Dove grey blouse. Looks good tucked into my grey skirt or over dark/black denim.

Can you spot the white peplum top?

Comfy baseball T from stylemint.

What I'm wearing on the plane,  

Take 2: I packed the denim.  Actually not brining leather now either.  Wearing a light wool love-coloured jacket.

Don't forget sunnies cause it better be sunny!!!
