We love summer, but we must admit fall’s impending arrival has us pretty excited. From sipping on morning coffee while wrapped up in a warm blanket to watching the leaves change from the porch, it’s a season full of little moments worth savoring. As far as shopping goes, our favorite stores stock up on all things autumn, which makes the season that much better. From cashmere sweaters to cozy home goods, take a look at these 24 Nashville FINDS from local stores we love.
Patterned cashmere sweaters
We can’t say no to a good cashmere sweater, and these two we discovered are perfectly soft while adding some pattern play to your ensemble. Toss on some jeans and short booties, and you’re all set for cooler weather. Peruse the many other patterns available at Hemline‘s Brentwood location and purchase one for $275 to $430.
Gold charm necklaces
Whether you’re looking to rep the 615 or don a September stone, these simple necklaces made by local Nashville company M. Florita are not only perfect for this month but all year long. Find your perfect match for $25 to $30 at Absolution.
Plum is a fall hue that can never lead you astray, so these patterned running leggings from Fleet Feet caught our eye. Pair them with a black running top if you plan on working out, or just wear them out and about for a few mid-day errands. Either way, you’ll show up effortlessly stylish. Snag these for $135, and we promise they’ll be your new favorite leggings.
Antique tan ankle boots
Fall’s arrival means it’s finally socially acceptable (and cool enough) to pair boots with any outfit – especially short boots. Whether it’s with a midi skirt, a pair of jeans or a dress with tights, these tan ankle boots from Lucchese are a go-to accompaniment. Add a hint of Western flare and wear these all season long for $395.
Fashion that gives back
Show your fashion prowess while supporting a very important cause! Our Be Kind Do Good necklace is a dainty addition to your jewelry collection, sure. But even better is that all purchase proceeds from the exclusive BKDG necklaces are being donated to the Houston Flood Relief Fund. Be Kind Do Good? Absolutely! Find it for $54 at SB Shop.
Black lace dress
There’s a true struggle in finding a dress that works well for an upscale event while being versatile enough to toss on for less formal occasions. This one from MODA Boutique, however, fits the bill entirely. With its gorgeous lace detailing and structured silhouette, you can wear it to a September wedding or dinner out on the town. Find it for $168.
Each of these necklaces has sparkling gemstone beading paired with diamond or sapphire charms. Each strand is adjustable as well, making it versatile enough to wear with any neckline. Stop by Cindi Earl Fine Jewelry to purchase one for $150.
Ruffle sleeve sweater
Statement sleeves are a fall trend that we are pretty smitten with. Whether it’s bell sleeves or ruffled detail, we can’t get enough! Not to mention the wider sleeve makes the top breathable yet cozy. Find this comfy sweater over at Pieces Boutique for $68.
Dueling pearl cuff
Refresh your jewelry box for fall by adding this beautiful dueling pearl cuff by Carden Avenue. At each end of the 14-karat gold-filled or sterling silver cuff you’ll see a small and a large mink, peacock or white freshwater pearl — and the juxtaposition of size makes quite the impact! Available exclusively at SB Shop, the sterling silver bracelet is $78, and the gold-filled is $88.
Polka dot lamp
If you’ve ever walked in the door at LUMEN Lamps, you already know that there are stunning items at each turn. This one, however, caught our eye right as we walked through the door. Reminiscent of the recent total solar eclipse, this piece can add a darker, moody feel to any room. Find it for $835.
Antique mahogany cabinet
This linen press cabinet is an antique Dutch piece made of dark mahogany and is just one of many rare vintage pieces at Northgate Gallery that is worth the splurge. This piece would work well in a master bedroom against lighter colored walls for a nice contrast. Find it for $12,500.
Collaged art piece
In a sea of paintings at Bennett Galleries, this collaged piece titled “Inner Circle” by Leslie Barron stands out as a rare take on fine art. If you are looking to mix up your home decor, you can find this refreshing addition for $3,200.
Golden deodar cedars
We spoke with the experts over at Bates Nursery and Garden Center, who informed us that September is the best time to plant trees. If you’ve been wanting to do some new landscaping, now is the time! These golden deodar cedars make a great addition to your yard and provide texture and dimension to any setting. Purchase one for $69, and watch it grow all year long.
Abstract art piece
We discovered this piece titled “Orange Sorbet” by Prenza that is ideal for adding just a subtle hint of orange to a room. Especially if you prefer more neutral decor, it’s the perfect canvas to bring some fall tones into the room without overwhelming the space. Find it for $1,466 at Ashley Meier Linens.
Custom wool flatweave rug
Nashville Rug Gallery not only offers myriad vintage options from around the world, they also make custom wool flatweave rugs. The offerings feature different designs, sizes and colors, all with a double foundation that creates a thick, high-quality rug perfect for a room with any color palette. See the pattern samples below, and have a full rug made for $620 to $3,850. You can then rest assured that your rug will last for years to come.
Pom pom baskets and chevron blanket
Few things are better than curling up with a blanket out on the porch in early autumn. We love this throw from Sanctuary South, and of course you’ll need a basket to store it in. This pom pom basket and chevron patterned blanket make a delightful pair. Find the blanket for $98 and grab a basket to go with it for $42 to $50.
While we love florals, there’s something timeless about a wreath for fall decor. This cotton wreath is made in shop at Rebel Hill Florist. Pick one up for $59.95 to ensure that your front door is the most gorgeous one on the block!
Scented soy candles
Candles are an autumn essential in any household, and these soy ones from Hester & Cook not only smell lovely, but also look beautiful. Buy a few for your home for $10.50 to $22.50 to make sure each room smells and looks divine.
Crystal serving platters
These serving platters combine cool tones with an intriguing slice of crystal in the middle, making them beautiful and unique pieces. Find them for $110 each at Fabu and use for decor or serving your favorite fall appetizer.
Wine cooling cups
We often forget to chill the white wine in advance, yet with these glasses, there’s no need to fear! These plastic glasses are stored in the freezer and can chill wine all the way to 43 degrees. They would be a welcome addition to an early autumn picnic in the backyard or just a casual porch gathering with friends. Find a set of four for $43.95 at The Beveled Edge.
Gold statue bookends
These aren’t your everyday bookends, as each acts as an art piece in itself with a unique statuesque form. Stack a few favorite books between these two pieces to add dimension and interest to a plain old bookshelf. Find a set for $160 at Ashley Rohe Home.
This gold candelabra is a stand-alone piece that will complement any season. Not only that, but you can place a seasonal wreath on top of it for an extra festive look as pictured below. Find it for $99 at Maxi B. Home.
FOR THE KIDS
Capture a snapshot of your child to hold onto forever. storieChild creates custom storybooks that include your child’s interests, funny quotes, talents and more. When I Was (age) features fun illustrations and makes a great gift for your kiddo at the start of his or her school year or any momentous occasion. Buy it online for $12.99.
JUST FOR YOU
Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about 2018! The year will fly by before you know it, so you better find the planner of your dreams before it’s too late. We love both of these floral options from The Paper Place for $46 to $50.
