It’s been a pretty mild winter, but we’re still excited for spring — and the consistently warm weather, beautiful blooms and a fresh crop of fantastic Southern FINDS. Take a look at this fresh bounty of goods we’ve scouted from some of the South’s best brands and boutiques.
These hand-embroidered Eliz Pom clutches are absolutely the perfect pop for the warmer months ahead. In a pretty watermelon pink and a vibrant pool blue, these clutches are exactly what you need to put a little spring in your step. Find them for $230 each at Gus Mayer, with locations in Birmingham, AL, and Nashville, TN.
One characteristic that we admire so much? Grit. Check out StyleBlueprint’s exclusive GRIT ball cap, perfect for catching a ballgame or for shading your face from the springtime sun. This cap is definitely a conversation starter. Of course, Memphis readers and wear it for Grit and Grind pride. Get your limited edition cap for $32 at the SB Shop. Click here!
Therapy Systems lip gloss
You’d be hard-pressed to find a better lip gloss than this one. One application is long-lasting, and the color options run the gamut. For $22, you’ve found your new favorite gotta-have! It’s a hands-down SB staff favorite for the scent, the feel (not goopy!) and the way it moisturizers our lips. Get it at Therapy Systems.
“Here Comes the Sun Dress”
Brighten up your weekend with this vibrant “Here Comes the Sun Dress.” With intricate embroidered detail on the sleeves, charming tassel ties at the cuffs and neckline, and flattering cold-shoulder cutouts, this pretty dress will definitely carry you through the warmer seasons ahead. Find it for $68 at The Impeccable Pig, with locations throughout the South. Visit the website to find one nearest you.
Rag & Bone sandals
Step into spring with these mid-heel, handwoven leather sandals available at Oak Hall, with locations in Nashville and Memphis. They are comfortable enough to wear all day, and they’re versatile enough to be dressed up or down. Find them for $495.
Elaine Turner clutch
We’re BIG fans of cork, and this Elaine Turner “Simona” in cork is a playful yet elegant addition to any gal’s accessory collection. Carry as a clutch, or use the gold chain and sport it as a shoulder bag. Either way, this will be your favorite carry-all for spring. Find it for $198 at Elaine Turner.
Beach mat throw
When we think of beach accessories, the towel is most often the last on our list. But before you check off stylish sunglasses, a fashionable hat and the perfect coverup, grab one of these beach mat throws. As cute as it is functional, you will use it all summer long. Woven with gingham cotton, the throw is soft and quick-drying. It even has a handle so you can take it anywhere with ease. Find one at Ocean Tribe by Turkish T for $58.
TruBee beeswax rub
Granted it’s been a VERY mild winter, but the dry skin struggle is still real. If you have a touch of chapped skin, cure it with TruBee Honey’s beeswax rub. Reportedly great for use on everything from cracked hands to conditioning tanned leather (yes, seriously), we enjoy it for its good old-fashioned moisturizing capabilities. Get a tin for $5 here.
Tooth Fairy kit
Make losing a tooth more fun for your little one with an official letter from the Tooth Fairy. The Tooth Fairy kit includes an official record of the child’s tooth loss, six payment and receipt cards (two of each color) with an envelope attached to hold payment, and a small muslin bag in which to place the tooth before safely putting it under the pillow. Each piece in this kit is letterpress printed. Find the kit at Hester & Cook for $22.50.
Subscription to Flower Magazine
Tis the season to get outdoors and prepare your gardens for spring. If you’re in search of a little garden (or home or entertaining) inspiration, a Flower magazine subscription is the perfect antidote. Enjoy a 1-year subscription for $19.99. Learn more at flowermag.com.
Invite the songbirds to stay with a Sophia Birdhouse from the Stoneware & Co. Louisville Pottery Collection. This organically inspired piece has a beautiful, hand-applied glaze created just for this collection. Find one at Stoneware & Co. for $45.
