DFO Brisbane: Shopping for Summer!

Today I had a day off of work, and a free afternoon. My mum, sister and I decided to head to DFO Brisbane to put that time to good use! Unfortunately I didn't notice my camera battery had died, so I took photos on my phone instead.

This is what I wore:

Sunnies: gifted Cotton On 'Risky Business' sunglasses in sky blue
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Top: Cotton On round neck zebra stripe top
JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
Shoes: gifted Havaianas tropical print thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus old blue beaded bracelet, gifted purple Salvatore Ferragamo 'Vara' leather bow bracelet, gifted Eiffel Tower bracelet.
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Last worn: blue sunglasses, printed top, purple skinny jeansprinted HavaianasRebecca Minkoff mini MAB.

I have had a great time as a DFO Official Blogger, shopping for Spring accessories and Father's Day gifts. This time, we were on the hunt for some new summer clothes. We had a little break and some delicious chocolate cake too, as nothing beats a mid-shop stop to refuel!

Roxy is a recent addition to Brisbane DFO, so we went there first. Everything was 70% off and there was a huge range to chose from, but in the end I couldn't go past this cute navy skirt. Even the sales assistant was commenting on the gorgeous print.

We had bikinis on our mind when we headed to Seafolly, but I was easily distracted from the great swimwear when I saw the ombre maxi skirt. Just knew that it had to come home with me. It has slits up either side to the knee, so it will be perfect for Brisbane's summer heat.

City Beach was next, and with dresses starting at just $20, we tried on a few! The search for the perfect bikini came to an end though when a stripy purple one was spotted.

These are some of the pieces I came home with:
  • Seafolly runaway maxi skirt in sunset. Was $119.95, reduced to just $59.95
  • City Beach Fiesta striped purple bikini. Was $69.99, reduced to just $30.
  • Roxy succulents pleated skirt in Indigo. Was $79.99, reduced to just $23.99.

Perfect for summer and beach weather, don't you think? What's your favourite from the items I bought or tried on?
