Summer Styling with Unicorn Born

How would you describe your personal style? For me, the buzzword is eclectic. I can't really seem to stick to just one "look", although I really envy people who can! However, when it's not just a jeans and jumper day and I do make an effort to look nice, it's great to have a mix of things in my wardrobe so that I can dress to reflect my mood. Sometimes I like looking like a fairy who has just stepped out of the enchanted forest, and other days, I enjoy trying something a bit more daring to show off my inner Catwoman.

Just how mix-and-match my style really is was showcased when I was offered the opportunity to test out some beautiful handmade chokers, created by Fee from Unicorn Born. Naturally, the items that I chose were polar opposites: one delicate pink crochet piece, and one black, vampy number that wouldn't look out of place on Morticia Addams.

So, in order to show you that whatever your style, whether you're more of a fairy princess or full blown emo chick, you can find a choker to suit you, I've decided to show off exactly how I wear both of my Unicorn Born pieces. This was my very first outdoor photoshoot, and I did it all by myself with just my camera tripod and self-timer too (eek)! Are you ready for THE MOST awkward outfit photos ever? You bet you are.

The floral dress look is a very comfortable one for me. In the winter, I throw on a chunky knit cardigan and a pair of tights over the exact same pieces that I wear with sandals and a flower crown in the summer. I love the slightly sheer sleeves of this particular dress and the elasticated waist, which is especially forgiving when you've had a big lunch, as I had on the day when these were taken (can you tell?) The pink crochet choker from Unicorn Born compliments this look so well, it's delicate and dainty but it's still very well made, so you're secure in the knowledge that it won't fly off while you're dancing around an enchanted treestump.

If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that I recently purchased this rather daring jumpsuit from Boohoo, and I really wasn't that sure about it when it arrived. This is one of the most "out there" pieces that I own but now that I'm used to it, I really love it! The material is lightweight and easy to wear, and the cut is super flattering. The black choker from Unicorn Born, with lace as well as ribbon detail, really kicks this outfit up a notch and adds an extra bit of sass. I feel really confident and ready to kick some ass when I wear all of this together!
