(Top: Zara, Trousers: Topshop, Bag: Lulu Guinness, Shoes: C/O Butterfly Twists)

Over the past couple of weekends I've learnt to embrace an important skill. Not a new sport, or a new means of getting crafty (although I'm still yearning to learn the art of knitting and get out my pencils soon)- but taking time out. Switching off, putting my laptop down and invaluable out of office on- and relaxing. Spending the afternoon watching a film I've never seen (or, y'know, Pretty Woman again) or going out and seeing a new part of the town I live in. It's such a luxury to have a spare moment to spend with someone you love, or do something you enjoy- and being able to embrace that along with 'TGIF!' tweets at the end of each week is a treat. So, along with a spot of free time (and an afternoon dedicated to tea and cake)- Joe and I hopped on a (diverted Southeastern) train (the realities of weekend travel, y'all) and headed up to a grey London, and our playground for a few hours!

In theme with Butterfly Twists 'Anytime Anywhere' campaign- and the idea that these flats are so much more than just easy 'pop on' day shoes, I donned my most comfortable nautical navy and white ballet flats by the brand (you'd never know they had memory foam inside them too- here's laughing at you, blisters!), along with a favourite monochrome pairing- and enjoyed every moment of the walk around Whitehall, Leicester Square and the little nooks and crannies around it- with no moment wasted needing to swap shoes, or worry about any extra miles and exercise sulks, care of yours truly- ssh! On top of that, I could easily slip another pair in my bag for the evening (because that's what sparkly shoes were made, right?) and switch them over without compromising essential camera bag space- but don't tell anyone, ok?

  5. That Zara top! All the heart eye emojis! I love the idea of Butterfly Twists, sometimes you need a spare pair of shoes that give you comfort after wearing something more stylish but teetering - bye bye blisters!
