Scarf Print Try Outs.

Alrighty, so first off I would like to say a hello to all my new followers, thank you for following Sugar Sweet Monster, I'm chuffed you are.
Now let's get down to business; this week's 1,2,3. This Tuesday I thought I'd play dress up with the scarf print shirt I bargained last week in a charity shop (of course, where else?haha) as I have been dying to wear it out, and needed some outfit ideas. Scarf print is huge this Summer, inspired by Dolce and Gabbana the high street has gone slightly mad for it, River Island especially! I wasn't so sure about this trend, 'it's certainly a  brave one' I thought, but it is eye catching and different... it adds a bit of 'wow' to a simple outfit.

This particular one is nautical themed, with a sailing boat on the back.
Slightly equestrian. This outfit is very simple and so comfortable. I was a bit dubious about putting gold necklaces with scarf print but I think it works because of the navy central strip breaks up the 'chaos'.

Laid back Summer. I want sun and I want it now (don't we all?!). Can not get enough of my cut offs, and this bag compliments the shirt quite well.

Leggy night. This outfit is daring all because of the hotpants. I do like this outfit, but I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to wear it out, although I have to say that the long sleeves and top button of the shirt does balance this outfit out. One of my key style rules; if you have your legs out keep your top covered and vice versa. I've been keen to put some red lippy with this shirt, just looks tres sophisticated.
