This month’s FINDS are a grab bag of some things we’re loving right now — nine fun items to pick up at some top Southern boutiques or online shops. Whether they’re new releases, seasonal items (we’re looking at you, SEC fans) or just beautiful things we’ve discovered and love, here are our favorite Southern FINDS for September. Enjoy!
Turkish T Linen Kimono
Luxury linen brand Turkish T has some beautiful options for transitioning from summer to fall. We’re big fans of this linen kimono, which is a 50/50 linen-cotton blend, and it’s perfect for covering up during cool fall evenings. It’s a wonderful item to have in your change-of-season arsenal. Find it for $100 at Turkish-T.com.
American Cake Cookbook
Anne Byrn, more commonly known as the Cake Mix Doctor, is back with a brand-new release that is part cookbook, part history lesson. American Cake is a beautiful account of baking history that traces the evolution of American cakes — focusing on origin of various cake trends, noting regional correlations among recipes and location, and retelling the stories of how each of the most popular American cakes came to be. As if THAT wasn’t enough, though, try your own baking skills at any (or all!) of the 125 cake recipes, each more one more enticing than the last. If the recipes don’t leave you drooling, the stunning photography will. Find it for $29.99 at your favorite local bookstore.
Stewart Simmons SEC Dresses
If you’re an SEC devotee, your pride runs deep and no doubt carries over into your closet. Celebrate your SEC pride in a stylish way by sporting a cute ensemble by Stewart Simmons that features your favorite school’s colors. Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee … the gang’s all here. Choose your favorite style and color combo (prices vary), and you’re ready for Game Day!
Judith Bright Rings
Judith Bright never does wrong in our book — and we love her new pieces for fall. It was a hard decision between the collection of rings, earrings and necklaces but we landed on these beauties. They are interesting and thick enough to make a statement but minimalist enough for everyday wear. Find them at Judith Bright or online at judithbright.com for $158 each.
“Since 1920” T-shirt
We’d be remiss if we didn’t include the new StyleBlueprint t-shirt collection as a favorite Southern FIND. The “Since 1920” t-shirts celebrate women’s right to vote, a law that was ratified back in 1920. This election year, no matter WHO you vote for, partake in your right to vote, an accomplishment for which we can thank the generations before us. Show your thanks in one of the t-shirts in the collection. Click here to see your options, sizing and learn more. #womensvotesmatter
Your man can show his spirit — subtly — with a classic, hand-stitched needlepoint collegiate belt finished with full-grain chestnut-colored leather and a solid brass buckle. Find these for $165 each at Oak Hall, with locations in Nashville and Memphis.
Whether you’re planting some fall beds or are moving your herbs inside for the coming season, make sure you keep track of what’s what with these fun silver herb markers from Hester & Cook. Repurposed flatware takes a whimsical turn as former knives now don inscriptions of thyme, sage, basil, rosemary and oregano. Find them at Hester & Cook in Nashville or online for $34 at hesterandcook.com.
National Parks Puzzle
Although this is a great product for kids and adults alike, we thought this puzzle, $23 from steve mckenzie’s in Atlanta or online, is a great way for Junior to learn about our national parks AND have a weekend activity. The store also carries puzzles of individual parks, states and regions … once you’ve figured out this one.
Show your hometown pride with city-specific Aviate hats shown here The Charlotte resident (and likely Panther fan) will rejoice over this perfect blue lid. Find this one for $38 at Pink Hanger in Charlotte, North Carolina, or get online and find YOUR city at shopaviate.com.
