Stepping Into Spring

Every season I am a disorganized bundle of mess.  I want to have the perfect capsule wardrobe for the season but that's just not how life or at least my life, works.
But, as I am going to BC in a few weeks (and I'm a crazy packer) so for the past week or so I've been really thinking of what I'm going to pack.  I'm only going for 2 weeks but the weather will be a bit warmer there, I'll be seeing a lot of friends and family I haven't seen in years, I'll be chilling at home, going to Easter Mass, going for lunch, playdates with kids, maybe hiking with mom.  So I'll be all over the place and I want to make sure I look chic and put together while still being casual and comfy.  So I've decided to only pack the things that I wear all the time and I know they 100% will work. 
So, here are some of my Spring Staples:
Mid-toned chambray shirt.  This one is Joe Fresh and I've had it for years.  It's not too loose, it's not too tight.  I tuck it into or tie in a bow over a grey pencil skirt.  Or I wear with my black or dark denim jeans.  I wear it on it's own or over stuff.  It's just perfect.
This adorable floral Joe Fresh dress just works for me.  It's high low so it's long in the back and covers my bum when I bend over.  I wear a cropped sweater over top or wear on it's own.  I put opaque black tights underneath with thigh high black suede boots.  It just works.
A long clad & cloth stripped thermal.  Just flowy and comfy. Here it is styled with my Levi's and a kimono from Smart Set.

These Denizen by Levi's jeans from Target are soft and well worn (as you can see from picture--ew!) I went and got another pair actually, before Target pulls out of Canada for good.

Yet another Joe Fresh grab.  A beautiful, flattering short-sleeved cream blouse.  Boom!

MAC Modern Mandarin blush is just a perfect summer blush for me.  I pack it on and it looks so natural and glowy and fresh. (Sorry about the piss-poor pics!)
And lastly my rose-girl watch from WalMart.  Yay!

More to come I'm sure and I'll show you how I pack! Stay tuned!
