Leopard Sweatshirt – ASOS (similar in red). Denim Skirt – ASOS (similar here). Shoes – Nike Free Run. Bag – Marc Jacobs. Sunglasses – Celine via SunglassesShop. Cashmere scarf – Johnstons. Watch – Sekonda. Friendship Bracelet – Lucy Folk. ‘Oui’ ring – Street Bauble. Outfit photos with help from Charlie.

Speaking of good weekends, I’m steeped into World War Z by Max Brooks at the moment and having a blast ignoring off the sun and sitting inside a makeshift tent made out of blankets and pillows while the hubby slides in chicken and cous cous every few hours. I shove out the empty plates, and another one with jell-o gets pushed in. I have a good husband like that. He’s into his online games, and I’m stuck on a zombie book, we’re both happy and apparently the sun is out so technically that ticks another box in the Happy Weekend form. Who knows, tomorrow I might cycle down to the flower market to pick up some blooms for the week and maybe see a friend or two for coffee and cakes. What are your plans for the weekend?

By the way, do check out that book, it’s the best take on the zombie apocalypse I’ve seen/read so far – none of the overdone, emotion-led, soppy stories involving an enigmatic lead character and the journey to a Disney end of humankind, but a clever compilation of interviews and stories by survivors, interlaced with politics, military and all manners of science on a global scale. Everything seems so plausible that it’s terrifying - I keep re-telling some of the stories to my husband as if all of it really happened, it’s that good. Make sure to put it on your summer reading list!

  3. I am not into zombie things at all. I have no idea why. But the idea of little blanket tents remind me of my childhood days where only camping I can do was to make a little blanket tent on the balcony on a summer day. oh memories of growing up in the city :)
    I feel like I live to read your next post these days. always true, genuine, with the right amount of humor.

  4. Looks like a great weekend. We always hit up the local Farmer’s Market and take Saturday afternoon naps :)

  25. That’s one of my favourite books! It’s so realistic – I can imagine the governments of the world abandoning the majority of us if a zombie apocalypse did indeed happen (and I really think it might one day! If there’s going to be an apocalypse I would much prefer zombies over a virus or nuclear attacks!)

    As always – awesome post, awesome outfit, awesome photos

    Happy Sunday!

  26. Awesome pictures, and I really like the outfit: distressed denim skirt, leopard sweatshirt and sneakers are the best choice in the world.

  27. wow sounds like the book is really good hmm
    I like Resident Evil and zombies in general (yeah…) and I have heard from the movie and book in one of Michelle Phan’s monthly fav vids, but never thought it would be //really// good
    but now.. since you say it.. Hahaha

    btw the pic with the woman and the cake looks like straight out of a painting or semi-horror fairy tale movie, because of her hair, face and the way her back is bent

  28. Ah that’s exactly where I heard about the book too! I downloaded Warm Bodies and World War Z after watching that video ;)
    Warm Bodies is good too but quite ‘teenage-y’ and very different from WWZ. I personally prefer WWZ of course ;) Definitely check it out if you like zombie novels!

  29. Ahhh World War Z!! Amazing book. Max Brooks came to my school a year or two ago (jeez losing track of time) and he was so funny! He answered questions about the book and did a signing. I remember asking him “If your best friend was dead weight would you leave him behind?” and he was so taken aback. He said that he always gets that audience question but never from a girl :P First time for everything. Glad you’re enjoying it though. I’m a little anxious about the movie because the plot will be completely different. Are you gonna go see it?

  30. @Shini, If you’re really adventurous try out Dead Set. I think it’s 6 or 7 episodes…SO GOOD.

  31. CauseLoveIt

    I fell in love in your photos…

  32. I absolutely love your photos and look! Such an amazing mood :)

  35. Tilda Swinton, is that you?

    Lol, I kid… but the girl adjusting those goodies reminded me of Swinton…

  36. I’ve never read a zombie book but love zombie movies. i really fancied this one because it was filmed a bit in glasgow where I’m from. cant believe you hid away from the sun though, you skin must be gorgeous, i can’t resist a bit of sun worshipping
