Little Five Friday #11 (late!)

Hello again wonderful readers, I haven't half missed blogging and catching up with you all lately. It's been a hectic time, Mark and I made the big move on Sunday. It's taking some adjusting and some settling in, but I think we're getting there. Mark started his new job as a postman yesterday, and I've got myself a little job in the local paper shop to get us by for now. My next OU course started last weekend too, so I've got lots of organising and studying to do! Next job on the list... clearing out my old wardrobe here ready for my mountain of clothes!

1. We went to Knowsley safari park and it was amazing! I couldn't recommend
it enough, and will be doing a post with all the photos soon.

2. I started watching the BBC series Hair, and I'm loving it! I didn't know
what it was about when I saw the adverts, but now I'm totally hooked. Have you
been watching? Who's your favourite?

3. It was my first Mother's Day as Rufus's momma and he (Mark!!) spoilt me!
They got me a beautiful big bunch of daffodils and this pretty card. Which
Rufus promptly nibbled on for me!

4. Last week I met Sam of All I Know Now for some shopping in Liverpool. There
was definitely cake involved! It was so lovely to meet Sam and to put a face to the
name (so to speak!). It was the first time I've ever met a blogger, I was nervous
but I had a fab day and hope to see Sam again! Check out her blog post here.

5. Saturday just gone was my last day at work. It was sad to know I wouldn't be
working there again, with the lovely people I work with. I was very spoilt with
cards, chocolates, vouchers and more - I'm so lucky to have met & worked with
such wonderful people and I'm going to miss them all!! Even the customers!!

6. Sunday was of course moving day. Fitting everything in the car was a task,
and we've still left things behind. I left most of my clothes as we're visiting
soon, so we'll bring more then! Unpacking was worse than packing!! Finding
space for all of our things hasn't been easy, but it's slowly getting there.

Please bear with me whilst I'm catching up, things will get back to normal soon :)

OOTD: Markus Lupfer Classic

Half & half choker - Cinderela B via Steph of faiiint
Faux leather jacket - Zara via carboot sale £1.00
'Classic' t-shirt dress - Markus Lupfer via Ebay £21.52
Molotov Kenta skinny jeans - All Saints £85
Frankie flats - Sam Edelman Birthday gift

Hello lovelies, it's moving week!! Sunday is the day of the big move, and we haven't started packing yet..! How has your week been so far? I'm excited tonight because tomorrow is the first time I'm going to meet a blogger in real life. I'm meeting the lovely Samantha of All I Know Now, for some retail therapy in Liverpool after Sam's Thailand injections. I can't wait!

This outfit is from last week, when Mark and I went shopping and then to Frankie and Benny's for dinner. I absolutely love my new Markus Lupfer piece, I love his use of embroidery and slogans and I just can't get enough. His iconic design is the sequin lips on jumpers, but I always lusted after that perfume bottle jumper. Maybe one day..!

I've been wearing the Classic t-shirt dress as a top rather than a dress, it's much more wearable for me this way and long sleeves are something I always look out for. It's the perfect fit, boxy with skinny fitted sleeves - my favourite. I'm sure at some point I will style this eye-catching piece as a dress, but for now it's making my casual outfits a little bit more special.

How would you style a slogan piece like this?
