I know. Another Fall blog post. Because liking fall is something I’m supposed to be ashamed of…? What??? When will people be judged for being obsessed with summer? Oh wait, it doesn’t actually matter what your favorite season is because no one will win the battle of the seasons! Duh!
But for those of you that just refuse to get it. Here’s the thing about Autumn.
Yes the pumpkin spice latte is as good as we say it is. No you don’t have to like it. And if you do like it… no that does not make you a basic white girl.
Fall means dressing basically anyway you want. You can get away with summer clothes or more cozy clothes and light layers and still be comfortable. What the fuck is wrong with liking that?
Boots. That’s it. Boots are amazing.
The sky is bright blue and the trees are so colorful. And crunchy. Don’t pretend you don’t take satisfaction in stepping on a crunchy leaf. Or kicking a pine cone like a soccer ball. Yes you.
Halloween. You get to take a night off and dress up as whatever you want. This can involve as much or a little effort on your part. And as you get older, fewer people judge you for your costume. If you work it, no one cares.
Cuddle weather! And rain! I know not everyone likes the rain but “It’s good that there is rain. It clears the month of your sorry rainbow expression and clears of the streets of the silent armies. So we can dance.” -Basketball Diaries.
I could go on. But you get the point. Liking fall doesn’t make you basic. It makes you excited for change and color and festivities. And I for one am all for it.
