June in Nashville is sizzling in more ways than one. Amidst the high temperatures, a busy calendar and the steady heightening of summer travels, we’re ensuring that there is still time for some hot June FINDS. Whether you’re looking for a (slightly overdue) graduation gift, some personal pampering or a little indulgence in the name of chic summer styles, we’re pulling together some notable items. And let’s not forget about Dad! With Father’s Day less than a week away, you still have time to a great gift he is sure to love. Happy shopping!
FOR THE SKIN
No, we don’t typically find ourselves complaining about dry skin in June, but we do all know the feeling of cracked beach heels or feet that have been wrecked by sandals. The Soothing Body Balm from our friends at Thistle Farms helps with skin restoration in all the areas we need it. Choose a bottle of one of the three scents (or the unscented kind) for $12.50 and apply to any problem areas for quick relief.
In the month of May, Therapy Systems released the all-new Natural Solutions collection, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect. As we head into a season where our skin needs even more attention than normal, we’re loving the chance to give it the care it so desperately deserves, through these three products made with clean ingredients. You can find the Eye Cream for $75, the Cleanser for $45. and the Moisturizer for $65 at Private Edition or The Cosmetic Market.
FOR SOMETHING SUMMER
In the midst of the backyard BBQ season, we’re looking for all the ways that we can dress our spreads with colorful tableware. Visit GasLamp Too to take a stroll through the gorgeous collection from potter, painter and sculptor Lisa Deater, and you’ll be eagerly planning your next gathering in no time. Find these blue bowls for $28 and the matching mugs for $24 each.
Janessa Leone hat
We love a great beach hat, but this fabulous Janessa Leone accessory is so much more. From everyday errands to this season’s concert lineup in Nashville, this hat is ready for all of it.

When it comes to seeking and finding great summer sandals, we can exhaust ourselves in the search for a pair that is both fashionable yet versatile. This adorable Dolce Vita pair from Hemline might just fit the bill. Pair them with shorts for the beach, or a dress for date night, and you will be comfortably rocking your new favorite June shoe.
Just when we didn’t think we could crave a great slice of fresh watermelon any more than we already do, we fixed our eyes on these gems. Fashion this adorable pair of beaded drop earrings from Stacey Rhodes Boutique, and you will certainly draw eyes while also ensuring you’re ready for any summer potluck. Splurge for the $195 watermelon earrings because we promise you won’t take them off after you do!
On those days where you just might not have it in you to pull together that perfectly assembled outfit, we love the accessory that can even give your simplest day a cute finishing touch.

The cigar case for $125 is exactly the gift he didn’t know he wanted but will now treasure forever. From work to-dos to celebratory golf course cigars, you (and him) are in good hands.
We all know that settling on just one thing can be the toughest part of finding a great gift for Dad. At Sercy+Co, you can hand pick items like bourbon pecan popcorn, beard balm, a steel cooler and beyond to create a gift box that truly gives him a little bit of everything. Shop from the entire Father’s Day collection in store or online, and get creative with how you craft your perfectly tailored box for that special guy.
If you’ve recently noticed Dad’s desperate need for a new wallet, this is your friendly reminder that it still exists. The front-pocket wallet/money clip and slim-fold wallet from Johnston & Murphy are sure to be hits this Father’s Day. Both shown here are in tan oiled full-grain color, but they’re available in a number of other colors and styles as well. The money clip is $48 and the wallet is $52.

As you spend a Saturday hopping around Nashville, the nuisance of carrying and keeping track of a bag can sometimes make you wish you just didn’t have anything to bring. Because we know that a phone, wallet and keys are quite essential, we think a backpack should be your new go-to summer accessory. This pale blue sack from Pieces will go with any outfit and provide you with worry-free transport of all your things. Buy it for $74 from the Germantown boutique.
