peplum stripes and maxi red

Hola Peeps 🙂

Apologies for the delay in delivering an ootd post, there were some personal issues to work through. Now my focus is back on the blog so onwards we go!

I met up with my good pal Rachel and the hubster at my favorite cafe on the island – Brunetti’s.

Here was my look for the day :




peplum top in stripes – Forever 21 +
maxi skirt in red – eBay UK
black loafers – Rubi
necklace – eBay Hong Kong

The folds of the peplum top are very nicely done and I like that because it’s strapless, there is a good anti-slip band placed inside the top to keep it from falling down! I would like to keep my naughty bits to myself, thank you very much! 😉



The skirt was a purchase from a few months back and I was Waiting to feature it in a post. Why? Well because I am so surprised by how becoming a maxi skirt is on my full figured hips! Some of you may recall my first attempt at this style with a black & white striped jersey maxi skirt. So I bought this skirt not long after that post. I love the light, sweat proof material of the skirt and it has a black elastic band at the top which isn’t tacky, so it can be slung as low as you’d like to wear it.


Rachel and the hubster were seriously cracking me up with their antics so you’ll find me laughing no holds barred in this pic 🙂


I went on a whim to have a look-see at what eBay sellers in Hong Kong were posting and oh guys, have I found a haven of jewellery sellers! It does make complete sense though right, might as well buy it from the source rather than pay a premium price for the brand.
I got the necklace at quite a steal, which I am super chuffed about.


Yes I know..I am quite the eBay shopper 😉

I have been watching a few online makeup tutorials to achieve that natural look for my face. It’s a challenge because my dark eye circles are hereditary, I have large skin pores and stubborn chicken pox scars.

I don’t know the first thing about makeup and have basically been winging it since I was an adolescent so it’s time to get educated on skin care & makeup suited to me. I tried a few tips and tricks with the look today. I prefer to keep it simple, unless it’s an occasion or party.



I plan to wear the same top but in a different look over the weekend, for dinner with my mates. So stay tuned for that post.

In the meantime, be kind to yourself and own the body you have – dump the shame.

Sending you lots of love,

  1. Very spunky Aarti! You rock this outfit girl! ❤ I like that you kept the makeup natural…and really, i don't see any dark circles or chicken pox scars, so a job well done!

  2. You look great! The top is pretty gorgeous it suits well with the red maxi. I admire you on finding good buys in eBay, I’ve been waiting to snug one sometime.

    1. thank you!
      well what I do on eBay is search items with my size (uk16-18), I put that in the search box and then click on women’s clothing. It’s a bit of finding a needle in a haystack but if you’re lucky, you’ll find a few gems 😉
