3/4 length shorts (capri or cargo) or leggings/skirt with singlets/sleeveless tops. The odd dress Preferably a stretch cotton or jersey. I hate sleeves so avoid t-shirts etc.

@Mod-biscotti, Sportscraft is my favourite store! OK, I am 41 so I guess that makes me old...but I'm not willing to accept that quite yet.
@SpecialPatrolGroup, I live in Brisbane too and I swear by Sportscraft's Liberty range as the cotton is super fine and light. Yes, each piece is expensive but you can get some great sale offers. The ones I buy are the short-sleeve and ¾-sleeve button-up shirts. They look great with tailored shorts - which Target had last summer and I'm hoping will have again - or light cotton skirts or capri pants. Sportscraft's Eva capri pants are sooooo nice too.
I also like dresses but they must have at least tank strap or small sleeves - spaghetti straps don't suit me and I feel like I'm just a bit too old to get away with them anymore. Over the years I've picked dresses up from Target, Portmans, Esprit and just random little boutiques around the place. Given that you live in Brisbane, I don't know if you've ever been to the West End Markets at Davies Park, but there's a stall there that sells the most beautiful dresses. They're all cotton with amazing patterns and varying styles - long, short, halter neck, tank, etc.
If you're ever up at Noosa this place has great stuff http://www.cottondiva.com.au. The Davies Park Markets stall has very similar stuff to this.
Hmm. Looks like a trip to the west end markets is on the cards.
Since I am 30 weeks pregnant and only going to get more and more pregnant over the next 10 weeks, and then dealing with a newborn, probably a lot of exactly what I'm wearing right this second! The daggiest coolest things I can find from kmart that actually fit. Hahaha

In summer I'm all about 50s/pinup style circle dresses (fit and flare), circle skirts with cute tops, the occasional pencil skirt or capri pants with cute tops. And if I'm not rocking the 50s/pinup look, I'm all about nylon! Leggings with t-shirts or dress tops, or my nylon skater or princess cut dresses. Oh yes
I love maxi skirts/dresses as well, but I'm generally too short to be able to wear them...unless I want to wear high heels, which I often don't in summer!
My arms/back/chest/face are fair with lots of freckles, but my legs? I'm like a freaking vampire they're so white , but *shrugs* I don't mind if my legs don't match the rest of my body!
I went shopping recently in preparation for the QLD summer. I hate the humidity. I'll also have a newborn by Christmas. So need to be comfy and able to breastfeed in what I wear.
I bought some playsuits, in light weight material, loose tops which are still relatively fashionable, nothing that will cling to my skin in the heat. And light weight shorts. Anything with an open back is good! But I'll struggle to wear the right bra under something like that.
At this point brown paper bags. I have horrible arms, horrible legs, a flappy mum apron and in insanely short, it really limits what I can wear haha. Plus my legs rub when I wear skirts/dresses. I usually wear denim shorts and tshirt, geberally oversized so they don't cling
