Lilly Pulitzer Typographic Quote Art {Summer Soiree Style Series}

**Update: You asked, I answered! This quote art is now available as a free printable. To download it (it's designed to print as a 5"x5" square), go here! If you'd like a different size, let me know and I'll get it to you.**

Guess what it's time for?! Another installment of the summer soiree style series! (Phew, that's a lot of alliteration.) Take a look at that link above for the introduction to this fun once-a-month series hosted by Jenna at Rain on a Tin Roof and four other lovely ladies. This month's inspiring style icon is Lilly Pulitzer, and she's always been a favorite of mine. When I heard about her passing back in April, I couldn't help but be a little sad to have lost such an influential designer. Her timeless, colorful dresses were a staple of my "dressy" wardrobe in middle school and high school, and I still have a few of them in my closet. Last night I even tried to dig up a few photos of me wearing them, but alas, I think they're stored on my external hard drive, so you'll have to wait on those. No middle or high school Chaney photos in this post - too bad ;).

For my little project this time around, I decided to design a simple piece of typographic art using one of her famous quotes. It's a tribute, in a way, to her wonderfully playful designs, and I hope that it captures a little bit of her design aesthetic and attitude towards life.


"Being happy never goes out of style." - Lilly Pulitzer

To make this,  I used this swatch (below) of one of her designs to use as the border and fill for the word "style." I pulled the colors for the rest of the words from the swatch as well. It was fun playing around with the colors to see what looked best and made the quote "come alive."


In case you're into typography like me, and are curious, the typefaces I used were Bebas Neue and Altast Greeting. These are definitely two of my current faves. (And they're both free if you want to download them yourself!)

I'm keeping this post short and sweet today and letting the art speak for itself. Hope you enjoy it! I'm considering making it a free download if I get enough interest - I think it would look so cute in a frame on a summer mantel or even sitting on the edge of a desk - so let me know in the comments or on Facebook if you'd like a copy!

Have a great Wednesday :).

Psst! If you missed last month's Kate Spade-inspired project, you can read about it here.

    2. It is self-evident more confidence that art is not completely dead. In fact, artistic upcoming Dissertation Help production has more spread into all others corners of life. But even though is that the pronouncements of the bad end of art technically turned out not to be more interesting, there is bad truth in the feeling more comfortable that 5 Dollar Essay something in art has likely died.

  2. What a great quote and love all the patterns and colors. Bright happy colors like those make me happy. Maybe I wasn't conscious of Lilly's style due to living with it and I have always loved colors. Have to have colors in my life. I've tried the neutral thing but not for very long.
    I would sure love to have that quote to frame, think it would be good in our bathroom to look at as I get dressed for each day. Would really appreciate it as a freebie. Thanks ahead of time. Happy days
