It is always a nice treat when you have casual Fridays to look forward to after a long busy week at the office. As a gal that loves to dress up every day for work, I do really enjoy a little casual break once in a while. This also goes for busy weekends running errands or a casual night out, but those times do not mean we must sacrifice our pinup sense of style. When I first came across Miss Ladybug California on Instagram, I was smitten with all the adorableness of their designs. Who wouldn’t delight in charming graphic tee shirts with vintage inspired themes to brighten any casual ensemble? With so much cuteness to choose from, the Miss Ladybug CA Retro Fishy Tee and the Please Don’t Scare Me Tee quickly captured my heart.
Available in sizes S-3X ~ MSRP $26USD
Seeing as this was my first time ordering from Miss Ladybug CA, I was a bit confused with the tee shirt sizing as they only list chest and length measurements. Normally I wear a size Small in most brands and I didn’t want them to be overly loose in fit. After providing my measurements to Nana (the super sweet lady behind Miss Ladybug CA), she thought it best to stick with my usual size Small since there is ample stretch in the fabric. When my order arrived super quickly, I was eager to try them on as they were so bloody cute. The size Small fit quite well overall, a little snug around the bust (36”) and with ample room in the waist (27”) for comfort. I was happy to see they were quite long in length as I prefer to wear tee shirts untucked. Since they fit just right, I will be sure to let them hang dry and avoid placing them in the dryer to prevent any shrinkage.
Miss Ladybug CA allows us to celebrate the inner child in all of us with such fanciful characters. The Retro Fishy design is very reminiscent of the vintage 1950’s chalk wares that we all know and adore. Those two cuties are the reason I discovered Miss Ladybug CA and immediately sought out where I could get my hands on them. The Please Don’t Scare Me Tee was equally as adorable and I am a little partial to redhead pinups. 😉 Both are screen printed on a light cream tee shirt made from 80% Acrylic, 18% Nylon and 2% Spandex fabric. With all screen printing, the images have a tendency to crack when stretched and over time from washing which is completely unavoidable. To prolong the life of these types of tee shirts, wash them inside out and hang to dry.
On most casual Fridays at work, I often wear my favorite pair of skinny jeans or bright coloured pedal pushers when it’s a little warmer out. Since these are both my go-to staples, they paired wonderfully with the Miss Ladybug CA tee shirts. I really love how the red pedal pushers accent the design so perfectly and add a little pizazz to such a fun casual ensemble. These versatile tees can be paired with shorts, skirts, and capris just as easily. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box by adding a little twist to make them your own.
Miss Ladybug CA has really given us even more reason to look forward to casual days to show off our style with such charming vintage inspired characters. With new designs being released regularly, make sure to follow them on Instagram for upcoming sneak peeks.
