Liz Cherkasova of Late Afternoon is no wallflower when it comes to her love of florals. Whether she’s picking out her favorite flower-market outfit, piecing together festival crowns for her best buds, or planning the next Flower Friday segment on her blog, Cherkasova knows inspiration when she sees it. On a spring afternoon at Celadon and Celery, her office away from home, the blogger proves how the petal-picked shades of the essie spring collection can seamlessly complement her spring-ready outfits.
Scroll down to see how the blogger found her spring outfit inspiration with essie's floral-centric collection.
“Bess [of Celadon and Celery] just recently moved into a beautiful new studio space where we've been dreaming up new projects to collaborate on for Flower Fridays. She has an incredible eye for not only flowers, but all aspects of design. Her studio space is a perfect reflection of that with one-of-a-kind pieces from Found Vintage Rentals. It's full of light and laughter.”
"The shades in the new essie collection inspired me to explore my favorite trends in unexpected ways. Today, I'm using the pretty palette to style three spring-centric outfits."
“I wanted to coordinate essie's Petal Pusher hue to my outfit, so I chose a light blue sweater and white boyfriend jeans to keep this daytime look as crisp as a spring bouquet.”
"I'm obsessed with wearing all white, nudes, and fringe for spring. The silhouette of this white flute skirt evokes the feeling of calla lilies. Florals all around."
“My eyes always gravitate to pink, especially when it comes to florals. essie's Flowerista shade adds the perfect pop. Enlist nail polish as an accent piece every chance you get. I used essie shades to complement my outfit, desktop bouquet and even a flower crown.”
“Play with neutrals and feminine details to let your nail art shine. My mani was inspired by 70s flower girls and their groovy style.”
“Flower crowns become insanely popular around festival season. There are so many approaches you can take to creating them—it's actually harder for me to replicate something than it is to create something new.”
"Be open to the idea of matching your outfit to a nude polish. A clean sihlouette and muted color palette feel very on trend."
