The thing we love most about Pup Tees is that typically, when someone stumbles upon us…they can’t just stop at one shirt! I mean, look, we all have to buy clothes….so why not buy clothes from people who are literally putting ALL of the money directly into the Shelter Dog Program bank account! Our first willing participant for this new Pup Tees Style Blog has truly taken that mindset to heart…she literally owns every Pup Tee we have created and we are so grateful!!
Monica moved to Phoenix from Portland, OR last October and knew before moving here that she wanted to volunteer for One Love Pit Bull Foundation. In November, she became a dual volunteer for One Love Pit Bull Foundation and Maricopa County Animal Care. Moncia loves taking photos of the dogs, it brings her great joy to capture their personalities and showcase adoptable dogs having a good time. Quickly Monica realized her favorite ways to volunteer are to take photos and help Project Pal sell Pup Tees at events!
Monica says she loves Project Pal because “100% of the profits go to help fund amazing programs for the shelter dogs.” She also loves shopping for a good cause, so cute tees that support shelter dogs make it a win-win purchase for her! This is Monica and her sweet pup, Odin!
When tasked with styling a Pup Tee her favorite way, Monica came up with a fun, unique idea. She decided to style our Mutt Life Crop Top four different ways! Check the outfits out below, and let us know which one is your favorite!
THE FIRST LOOK
I wanted this outfit to be more relaxed and it just reminds me of a 1990s California look. Higher waisted jeans, converse and a comfy top are always a winning combo.
I ALMOST put on my fanny pack, but decided to go with this simple and functional Matt and Nat bag. I guess I am just a bit stuck in the 90s and embracing it.
I wore the black shorts underneath to make it easier to change outfits in public, but I ended up really liking the look of them peaking out!
Jean shorts (similar), Converse, Under Shorts, Purse, Bracelet (similar), Sunglasses AND of course, Mutt Life Top
THE SECOND LOOK
I’ll be honest. This is my first crop top and it intimidated me! I’ve never been one that is comfortable showing my midriff, so I purposely styled this top with higher waisted bottoms to cover that all up.
I paired this A-Lined LuLaRoe Madison Skirt and flowy top because I thought they would be a good balance together, the A-Line skirt pulls everything in to the smallest part of my waist creating a flattering focal point. The cardigan and sandals dress up the outfit, but you could easily rock this look with converse and no jacket. I wanted to stick with simple colors, I’m naturally drawn to bright colors and fun patterns, so dressing in monochrome colors is stepping out of the box for me. This outfit is flowy and light, perfect for summer in AZ!
I’m a short girl. I didn’t think I would ever be able to pull off a maxi skirt AND wear flats… but I have finally figured it out! Here, I am wearing a LuLaRoe Maxi skirt, I folded over the yoga style waist band and pulled it up to just under my chest. I styled the skirt this way to cover my midriff and now my maxi skirt isn’t hanging on the ground.
THE FOURTH AND FINAL LOOK
I LOVE to pattern mix and throw in pops of color with my outfits. So, I paired the mint necklace to tie in the mint colored flowers on my LuLaRoe Cassie skirt. The pattern on this clutch is a fun way to mix up patterns for this outfit. I personalized this clutch by adding two colorful enamel pins, it’s too hot to rock my pins on a jacket so I decided to add them to my clutch and it looks so cute!
So let me tell you about this LuLaRoe Cassie skirt, it’s stretchy, comfy and instantly flattering. I paired this flowy top with this form fitting skirt to create contrast in the outfit. I pulled the skirt up for a high waisted look, but you can pull the skirt down to show off your midriff.
The great thing about this crop top is that it literally goes with everything, any pattern or style bottoms you want to wear it will compliment it perfectly.
