Lightbulb Clothes for spring

I will be living in Dublin from February to May and I need some advice on the packing. I understand that it will be on the rainy and cold side there( I live in Chicago and am from Minnesota... I get cold). My problem is that I tend to be a person that has a lot of clothes and likes to have variety. Does anyone have any advice on the essentials and the things that I will rarely use, if ever, that should be left at home?

If you are not to backpack, bringing a good load of clothes shouldn't be much of a problem. Do you know what is your airline luggage weigh limit? It is usually around 50lbs.

My way to have some variety on the road is to bring shirts, pants and skirts that all match. So it kind of doubles the selection.

What will you not use ? It depends on your lifestyle in Ireland. Will you go out a lot, work, study, do outdoors/indoors activities... ?

While it will rain at least once a day in Ireland it's not raining all the time. Usually we get a downpour, then some light mist, then the sun will come out for a while then we'll get some more mist. You would get away with a light raincoat.

Temperature should be between 5 and 13 Celsius. It's not horribly cold and the one good thing about Ireland is your never really that far from where you want to go. Even the centre of Dublin is fairly small. A light raincoat and a jumper would get you through any weather that Ireland might throw at you. It's really very mild we don't get heavy rain that often and it never gets to hot or cold.
