From the first hint of orange leaves to earlier sunsets, it’s clear that the season is shifting. Fall has finally arrived! While we’re sad to see summer dwindle, we’re definitely excited to welcome cooler weather with open arms. In the spirit of this exciting transition, we eagerly hopped around town in hopes of discovering some fantastic fall pieces. Whether you’re searching for ways to spruce up your home’s interior or add a few seasonal pieces to your wardrobe, these Nashville FINDS are sure to make a statement.
Mini plush pumpkins
Made with real stems, these aren’t your ordinary stuffed pumpkins. Once the cooler weather starts brewing, just place a few of these on your mantle to easily transform your living room. These are the ideal fall home addition that won’t lose their charm in the years to come. Find them for $16 each at Vignette.
Painted platter and pitcher
Add a hint of nature to the table by pulling out this painted platter and pitcher for a dinner party. The creators of these pieces gathered artwork inspiration from the experience of a late autumn stroll. You can purchase the platter for $215 and the pitcher for $185 at The Registry.
Let this little creature perch anywhere in your home to add a fun, seasonal touch. We think it would fit in particularly well on a screened-in porch, propped up above the fireplace or even as a centerpiece addition. Purchase one for $75 at Dish Dish Goose.
Gold leaf antler box
This antler-adorned box will bring a hint of the outdoors to your space by simply placing it on your coffee table. Not to mention, dark wood and gold leafing is a combo that will mesh with any decor, making this a lovely hostess gift. Find it for $49 at Merridian Home Furnishings.
Wooden leaf bowl
Nothing says autumn quite like adorable woodland creatures! Fill this wooden leaf bowl with some seasoned nuts before a cocktail party, and watch as your guests take delight in the little chipmunk perched on the edge. Stop by Harpeth Gallery to pick up this piece for $106.
FASHION & ACCESSORIES
Gabrielle ankle boots
One of the reasons we look forward to fall the most is the reintroduction of boots, so inevitably our search for comfy, practical options truly never ends. The Gabrielle ankle boots from Johnston & Murphy‘s CoolSprings Galleria location fit our checklist with the low heel combined with both leather and suede options. Grab a pair for $198, and be sure to visit their new location for men’s shoes and apparel coming to the Green Hills Mall this month.
Faux suede jacket
Early fall begs for a lightweight layer that can be easily tossed on and peeled off as the weather fluctuates. This mocha faux suede jacket from Gus Mayer can be paired with dresses and denim alike, making it ideal for the season’s transition. Find it for $75.
If you haven’t already noticed, the patterned boot trend is coming on strong this season. We’ve been searching for a pair that is just colorful enough while still being able to mesh with most of our wardrobe. When we stumbled upon these tapestry boots at Stacey Rhodes Boutique, we immediately knew we had met our match. Get your pair for $160, and rest assured you’ll have the most stylish shoes around town.
Hooded denim dress
Casual autumn dresses are a tough find, but this dark denim number from Peter Nappi‘s 12 South location caught our eye. Pair it with layers and boots if it’s cooler out, or just toss on some flats for those unusually warm fall days (which are all too common in Nashville!). Pick this piece up for $287.
Cheetah high tops
Looking for a splurge pair of shoes that will turn heads and are super comfy? Elevate any jeans-and-tee look with these dark orange-red cheetah high tops from H. Audrey. You can say goodbye to reaching that worn-in look months after you purchase a pair of sneakers, as these are already perfectly distressed. Find them for $565.
Autumn nail polish
Goodbye, light pinks and neutrals! We’re beckoning in darker nail colors such as orchid and teal for the season, and these polishes from The Cosmetic Market are just stunning. Chip-resistant and ultra-shiny, the Oribe brand will be your new favorite. Pick up a shade for $32.
Time to get out and shop local. Happy fall!
