{Fashion Monday} Butterfly Twists and Stripes

Thank you Butterfly Twists for gifting me these awesome Jade pumps.
Butterfly Twists & Stripes

 

Shoe shopping (ok shopping all in all), where would I be without you, those who know me know how few many shoes I have in my collection both at my home and my parents house. I am the loved shopper because I do not discriminate, if I love the shoes (or any other clothing item) I am buying them, if I think I need them for work then I am 100% buying them that’s how I operate these day. You should have seen my face last week when the lovely people at Butterfly Twists contacted me for a possible collaboration, I was so excited I may or may not have done a little dance in the office making my colleagues think I had won the lottery (well close enough).
I will start by saying prior to Butterfly Twists contacting me I had not heard of them before, since I got the e-mail at work I waited until my lunch time (might have moved it up 10 minutes) and set about checking out their website to see what they offer and boy oh boy do they have a huge collection of everything. It was like father Christmas had decided to play another prank on me and said shop till you drop (obviously the purchase disagreed). After perusing the website, I replied to them and we agreed on me choosing from the ballet pumps  category and I chose the Jade pumps (Β£60) in Zebra stripes which are absolutely gorgeous. The Jade pumps are part of the new collection, perfect shoe for the woman who can’t live without her trainers. Jade is a skater-style slip on featuring on-trend zebra print pony hair. I love them because they look like sneakers, have a hard but comfortable base and they are not only strong but foldable too.
Jade butterfly twists

The Jade is our take on the popular skater style shoe. These lightweight slip ons are skid resistant and feature a premium pony hair upper in zebra. Feet are cushioned by a memory foam insole, while a micro-suede lining keeps the shoes feeling cool and fresh.

I am not one for wearing stripes but how could I resist these zebra styled pumps, spring is coming and we will shortly be leaving the knee-high boots behind (correction – I have left my boots behind) and start enjoying the feel of flat pumps on our feet. When I took me for a dry (of wet since it was raining in Poland) run, the shoes are comfortable but maybe I should have chosen a bigger size only issue is I am thinking the bigger size would be too big. Because they are foldable and I have to give my feet chance to break into them they were catching me a bit at the back when walking which was slightly annoying but once I broke through them, they have been fine and I am loving styling them with the few striped items I have in my closet.
 What do you think of how I have styled the Jade pumps? Have you ever shopped from Butterfly Twists before?

    I love ballerina and pump style shoes as teaching all day in any heels is impossible (well, it is for me at least!) so these look really comfy and stylish. Will have a look at the company πŸ™‚

      Thanks Chantal

    I typically don’t wear a wide variety of shoes. I mostly go bareoot at home, sandals, clogs or tennis shows when I leave the house.

    • March 8, 2016 / 6:08 am

      I love walking barefoot at home except in this cold weather

  16. March 8, 2016 / 3:56 am

    I adore everything you selected here. The shoes and the striped shirt are so adorable. I’m all about a big sweater these days

    • March 8, 2016 / 6:07 am

      I too love sweaters they are just so comfy and thank you

  17. March 8, 2016 / 2:58 am

    i love some animal print accents! i could totally see them paired with some magenta pixie pants, white blouse with a peter pan color, and blazer

    • March 8, 2016 / 6:06 am

      Now that’s a lovely outfit I can picture it too

  18. March 7, 2016 / 9:46 pm

    That’s so great that you got to do a collaboration with them! I love anything to do with Zebra’s so I think you made the perfect choice! πŸ™‚ xxx

    • March 7, 2016 / 10:02 pm

      Aww thanks for much, I was honoured to collaborate with them

    • March 7, 2016 / 9:11 pm

      Thanks Angela

  19. March 7, 2016 / 8:55 pm

    I have not heard of butterfly twists before but since I live in flats due to having a small child and being pregnant these would be right up my street. I love the Zebra print too and I can see why you chose them. Its good to know they have a strong sole as many pumps don’t. x

    • March 7, 2016 / 9:10 pm

      Yes not many pumps have strong sole which is worrying as most of us love flats

  20. March 7, 2016 / 8:54 pm

    Those really do look great and I bet they’re so comfortable. I think the stripes were a great choice!

    • March 7, 2016 / 9:08 pm

      They are so comfy

  21. March 7, 2016 / 8:26 pm

    Those pumps are absolutely fantastic – I could definitely see myself wearing them I love how you have styled them. x

    • March 7, 2016 / 9:02 pm

      Thanks so much Sarah I am loving them too

  22. March 7, 2016 / 7:20 pm

    Gorgeous I love the stripes trend so I cannot wait to sink my teeth into these fab buys. It will be great x The shoes look super comfy as well!

    • March 7, 2016 / 9:01 pm

      Thanks Ana, they are comfy and I love them

  23. March 7, 2016 / 5:24 pm

    foldable pumps are an essential on any night out! I don’t think I have heard of butterfly twists though so will have to check them out, especially as they come in zebra print which is one of my fav’s

    • March 7, 2016 / 9:00 pm

      I know right, I love that they are foldable

  24. March 7, 2016 / 5:03 pm
