Citrusy Inspiration from Ivelisse of Pretty Little Mustache

Happy Friday! I've got a pretty post for you today from Ivelisse of Pretty Little Mustache. Not only does she have a beautiful name, but she's gorgeous herself and so inspiring! So before your weekend kicks in, savor a little citrusy inspiration! 

Hello, Aisle to Aloha readers!! I'm Ivelisse and I blog over at pretty little mustache. I'm married to an awesome businessman, Edwin, and together we have an adorable little lady, Julianna. I love all things vintage, crafty and unique. I was thrilled when Lindsay asked me to blogsit while she takes a sweet break with her husband who just got home from deployment. I can't imagine how happy they must be to reunite! Today, i want to share some of what's inspiring me lately. 

I recently thrifted some neat fabrics, and i am completely smitten with them. in looking at them, they make me feel so happy. come to realize, they all have the same color pattern - orange, yellow and green. I never knew how much I loved these colors together, until I got them. They're so bright, lively and summery! Now every time I look at them, I daydream about all of the things I can make with them. and hello, of course I love them....they're totally 60's, which is my favorite era (along with the 50's). 

There are so many different things that incorporate all of these colors together...

{1} Like this amazing vintage sofa nestled within this simple living room. It adds such a pop of color. swoon!

{2} and this model - the way she flaunts the awesome bold orange and yellow outfit, and along with the greenery of nature, makes it look so easy to pull off. 

{3} or how about just enjoying a fresh orange, lemon or lime? I don't know about you, but those look delicious right about now for this hot hot summer! Not to mention, my favorite summer treat this year is frozen lemonades in mason jars. I could make them every day. mmm, so good!

{4} This insanely adorable outdoor party, with the colors integrated so flawlessly. I wish I was a guest on that list! 

{5} and This beautiful 1960's beaded necklace, with a gorgeous yellow brooch. 

{6} For my favorite, an amazing vintage dresser, restored to this delicate yellow - used as a cake table at this party, and garnished with orange, yellow, and green accents, to make the party look perfect. 

Well, lovelies, I hope the happy colors inspired you, too! Come by and say hello! I'd love to meet all of you :)

Thanks Lindsay for having me! Hope you and your hubby are enjoying this break together!! xoxo

  2. I think I've found another blog to obsess over. Thanks, Lindsay!

  3. I love the vintage floral fabrics. I'm trying to choose some with purples, blues and greens to make a quilt for our bedroom.
    Thanks for sharing!
