As much as we love swimsuits, beach totes and boat gear, we can’t deny that fall is our favorite season. Maybe it’s the excitement that comes with the new school year, perhaps it’s the promise of cozy sweaters and a well-loved pair of jeans, it could even be the weekends filled with sporting events, autumn festivals and more – whatever the case, fall is just more fun, especially when it comes to shopping. It took us no time to pop around town and round up 23 fall FINDS you’ll both want AND need!
As you update your wardrobe for fall, don’t forget to update your jewelry box. Ever Alice Studio‘s new collection is the perfect place to start! Each hand-crafted piece offers something unique. Shop their selection of necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets at their Germantown studio. We suggest taking an extra-long look at this stunning necklace, $160, while you are there.
We love lariat necklaces for their versatility. Whether wrapped multiple times to create a shorter look, simply tied and dangling, or layered with other necklaces, they are a great piece to have in your jewelry box. The hematite and fresh water pearl lariats, $240-$300, at Cindi Earl range in color, but would all look fabulous with your fall wardrobe. Perhaps we’ll snag more than one … and you should, too!
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 rings. They are thick enough and interesting enough to make a statement but minimalist to wear every day! Find these rings at Judith Bright for $158 each.
If you love layering necklaces and pieces that are rich in their history, then Ex Voto Vintage is a must for your shopping list. Their collection of popular and one-of-a-kind pieces add a storied element to your ensemble. We were especially drawn to the copper pearl necklace, $249, and mini white pearl piece, $149. Worn together, individually or with just about anything you already own, they will certainly stand out and invite conversation!
It may be hard to believe but fall weather will be arriving soon enough. To ensure comfort from cool mornings to warm days to crisp evenings and back, layering is essential. This sporty Patagonia down vest, $149, from Cumberland Transit is the perfect piece for morning walks and football games, alike. We especially love the cheery French red color, though it also is available in Drifter Gray and Ultramarine.
Tiffany & Co. sunglasses
Just because summer is ending doesn’t mean that sunny days are behind us. We think the best way to block your eyes is with these adorable Tiffany & Co. frames. We love the combination of blue and brown in the tortoise shell print. Add these to your collection and take them out for a spin. These sunglasses are $300 at Visionary Eyeworks.
The turtle neck, cropped sleeves, rich color, pockets and flattering cut are only a few of the things that make these a great piece for fall. It is a versatile piece that can be dressed up or dressed down, and we love just about everything about it. With the right bag and a great pair of boots, you can make an outfit perfect for all of your fall engagements. Find this dress at K. McCarthy for $198.
Booties are synonymous with fall, and this pair offers something different than your average pair. With laser cuts, wraps and small embellishments, these booties can act as a focal point of your outfit. The lower heel also makes them comfortable and wearable. Grab a pair today at Southern Vintage Market for $44.
Transition pieces are key when moving from summer to fall and this peasant top is just what we have been looking for. It is lightweight enough to wear during the day yet the long sleeves will keep you warm as the sun starts to set. Wear this now with a pair of light jeans or shorts, wear it later with a lightweight jacket, and wear it come winter with a cozy scarf. We found this top at Raine for $84.
Project 615 tee
The Titans are back in action and we are ready to cheer them on from our couches, the sidelines and anywhere in between. But, of course, we have to do it in style. This shirt is our go-to for football games. Slip into this super soft tee, $24.99, from Project 615, and we promise you won’t want to take it off. And, this shirt is perfect for guys and gals.
Keep your man looking and feeling good all fall long in layers that are both sporty and stylish. We’re eyeing this wool cashmere blend woven shirt, $825, from The Oxford Shop as the next splurge-worthy staple item for his closet. We love it styled unbuttoned over an everyday shirt for early fall days or buttoned up under a thicker coat when the temperature starts dropping.
Watches are one of these details in men’s attire that we always notice. It’s the equivalent of earrings or a necklace for women — it just adds a layer of polish and sophistication to even the most casual of ensembles. Spendy, yes, but this handsome Bremont watch from Mednikow, $5,350, caught our eye for its classic band and sleek face. Stop into Mednikow on September 14, 2016, to learn more about the English watch company and meet one of its co-founders, Giles English!
Any pair of pants will be elevated with the addition of these sleek leather belt. It comes in three color options, but we like the lighter oak color for fall. Wear it to work, to the game or out on the town. No matter where you wear it, you are sure to get your money’s worth. Find this belt (in addition to other luxurious leather goods) at Nisolo for $44.
Style isn’t just for the big kids. Give your little one a leg up in the fall fashion arena with this adorable one-piece jumpsuit for $96 at Arcade. Grab a book and snuggle up with your little one. An acrylic wool blend that fits loosely, this is a number your little ones can grow into and love throughout the cooler weather seasons.
The lazy days of summer are behind us and our schedules are quickly filling up with fall activities. This means less time for shampooing and a larger need for dry shampooing. It doesn’t makes us lazy — just efficient. This dry shampoo absorbs all oils and odors without weighing down your hair. Find it in two sizes — small for $10.50 and large for $24.50 — at Jessica Oram Salon.
If you are refreshing your hair color for fall, consider tinting your brows and lashes as well. The experts at REN Dermatology can help you find the perfect color to keep you looking fresh even as your tan begins to fade. Tinting for brows is $15 and tinting for lashes is $20 at REN Dermatology.
Pumpkin spice season is coming! We are embracing it with open arms and open stomachs — especially when it comes to this savory pumpkin spice organic cashew butter. Head to Hey Rooster General Store for a jar of this cashew butter for $14. You can try it on toast — but we won’t judge you if you eat it straight from the jar.
New burger in town
Farm Burger recently opened on Charlotte (between Salt & Vine and Double Dogs). Right away, we rushed over to taste-test their burgers. Our group of three ordered the vegan burger, the market salad with a chicken patty and the superfood salad with the beef patty. Of course, we rounded out the meal with a shared plate of pimento cheese fries and a Coke float. The pimento cheese fries got the highest praises but, then again, pimento cheese fries are in a league of their own. Featured today is the superfood salad with a beef patty ($10).
Bottle of wine
We are not quite ready to bid rosé season farewell just yet but we are making room on our wine rack for some delicious red wines. The Petit Paveil Bordeaux at Harvest Wine Market is our pick for this month because of its stellar price point ($15.99) as well as its approachability in flavor.
Abode Mercantile, located in The Shoppes on Fatherland in East Nashville, is home to gifts and home décor. One thing that immediately caught your eye is the collection of wooden signs. While some of these signs do hold the inspirational messages you are used to, many of them take a more satirical approach. This one in particular made us laugh. Find this one and more at Adobe Mercantile starting at $9.99.
A neighborhood favorite, Flower Mart, is always brimming with bright and lively things for your home and garden. We swooned at the sight and smell of abundant lavender, $14.99 per pot. Though it grows best in a well-drained area, do not let the challenge of beating humidity and moisture dissuade you. Consider how lovely a sprig would be in a guest room floral arrangement or dried and made into a sachet for your drawers!
There’s no denying or stopping the football fever that storms the South every September. Get more than just your house and kitchen game day ready – make sure your pup knows the importance of a touchdown catch as well! Whether you’re playing at Percy Warner or just in the backyard, we know your furry friend will love this football from Spot’s Pet Supply for $13.99.
Every girl needs a little box full of small mementos and we think these J Alexander pieces are a perfect set. Available at Welcome Home, the boxes are just one example of the many beautiful items in store. Consider the East Nashville shop your new go-to for gifts (and self-indulgent “happys”) of all kinds!
