April in the Queen City is a month full of activities and events, both inside and outside. We visited and searched some of our favorite local boutiques and shops to bring you the best of the best for April FINDS. Happy shopping!
Easy breezy dress
From brunch dates to sitting on a patio with friends, an easy breezy dress in a fun color is a great way to kick off warmer weather days in the Queen City. Dress by M.i.h Jeans, $225, necklace by Alex Hollerman, $265 and sunnies by Krewe, $375, all available at McKenzie Claire.
The perfect “Welcome Home” gift
Spring is the most popular time of year for buying a new home. The perfect housewarming gift, whether for you or a friend, is a custom home print by Boone and June. Custom home prints start at $100 from Boone and June.
Take Me Away
Dreaming of a trip to a far off destination? We are too, which is why we love this perfect beach tote, on sale now for $24, from Luxe Angel Boutique.
Show off your arms
As the weather warms up, it’s time to switch out your winter gear for your warm weather clothes. Add this adorable tank from 704 Shop that pays homage to the infamous marshmallow treats dropped by drones in the Villa Heights area to your rotation. Find the Villa Heights Marshmallow Tank $30 in the shop or online.
Go Hands Free
Yes, it’s true – the fanny pack is back! For those of you brave enough to sport this blast from the past, you can find them for $50 each at Well Kept! With all the events going on this month, it certainly is convenient to be hands-free.
Twice as Nice
Together this skirt, $205, and top, $208, make the perfect look, but broken up, they can create multiple outfits to take you through the spring and summer months. Both can be found at Monkee’s of Charlotte.
Make a Statement
We love the color of this clutch by America & Beyond. Make a statement even when just wearing a t-shirt and jeans. Find it at Moxie Mercantile for $48.
April is typically a time of showers and events where a delicious cake may be needed. We love the designs and flavors at Craft Cakes CLT and know you will too. Prices vary depending on the cake of your choice!
Don’t Forget Your Shades
We are big fans of sunglasses at StyleBlueprint, and we love a good deal – especially a pair from one of our favorite brands, Illesteva. Find these for $89 at JT Posh.
Sparkle and Shine
We love a big, statement-making cocktail ring to dress up any outfit, and this adjustable black night Swarovski crystal ring, $38, from Shy Siren is perfect for just that!
Off to the Races
Whether heading to Queen’s Cup Steeplechase or another fun spring event, we love this bright, floral dress, $550, from Capitol.
Brush Your Shoulders Off
Show off your shoulders in this floral top, $165, from KK Bloom. We love it paired with this sweet blush skirt, $80. Both can be found at KK Bloom.
One Step at a Time
We love the thrill of the hunt at a consignment shop. These Gucci shoes, $199.50 at Sweet Repeats, are the perfect pair of shoes to take you from spring to summer.
Happy spring shopping!
