No yoga pants, no Uggs, no PSL…


sammy dress embroidered tunic dress, chambray shirt, charlotte russe combat boots, zero UV steampunk sunglasses, biology boutique mint necklace, half united bullet earrings

Just wondering… where did this sudden worldwide-basic-girl-love-of-fall stuff come from?  I feel like for my whole entire life, fall was just MY favourite season, but all the sudden, I've been completely inundated with memes having to do with "basic" girls in yoga pants, Ugg boots, and a North Face jacket, while drinking a PSL and blabbing about how wonderful fall is.  

Back off my season, ya'll… 

I don't own yoga pants, Uggs, or a North Face and there is no PSL (aside from the 12, yes 12 boxes of pumpkin spice Via my daddy sent me).

I just love fall!  Crisp nights, yummy-scented candles, and ghost stories are kind of my jam.  Let me have my thing. 

These snaps were taken at a pumpkin festival over the weekend.  We drank pumpkin wine (that tasted like champagne) and ate pumpkin bratwurst (that tasted like a brat with a few spices tossed into it) and tried to avoid the epic masses of screaming children who were throwing hay all over the place.  On the upside, I did discover that I can use my own hair as a hairband to hold my bangs back and I got to sport this lovely new necklace from Biology Boutique.  Additionally, please note my epic new bullet earrings.  They come from a shop called Half United, which is dedicated to preventing global hunger (I'll tell you more about them in a few days)!

  1. I agree! I do own yoga pants, but they are reserved for actually practicing yoga... and are never ever paired with Uggs... those are reserved for dog walking when it's cold. And I def don't own Northface jacket. But, I do love fall... you did it justice with this post!

  5. Seriously, I know what you mean! I love Autumn and Winter; drinking too much hot chocolate and buying far too much knitwear - I truly love knitwear, which is one of the main reasons I love the colder seasons as I can wear as much knitwear as I like! I love your outfit; it's really pretty. Looks like a fun day out! xxx

  9. You had me at pumpkin wine! Have you ever had an apple cider dog? One of the farms here in NJ has them. They're hot dogs soaked in apple cider and topped with apple cider sauerkraut. Besides the many fashionable options of the season, I love the flavors of it, too!

    1. Lol… I just meant that it's gotten so weird with all the memes and every other person suddenly loving fall when I can guarantee that a couple of years ago, the people who say they love fall now wouldn't have chosen it as their favourite season… and it's mine… all mine… :)

  11. I really love the braid holding back the bangs. If you don't mind I might try that myself. Lovely outfit for a festival. I'm still waiting for the fall weather to arrive, it's still so hot here in Seville, the summer just won't go away. xoxoxo

  12. Cutest girl. Omg pumpkin wine!!! I've been dying to hit an Oktoberfest or fall festival and I can't wait. I'm good with autumn until about mid-October when Canada freezes over and hell stays around til May. Ugh, but for now I'll embrace it!

    1. The pumpkin wine really tasted nothing like pumpkin. The only thing that remotely reminded me of pumpkin was the fact that it was orange! It's still in the 70s out here on a daily basis! I want to wear my new sweaters and coats and scarves!

  14. Haha... I came home from the grocery store the other day with a tub of pumpkin body butter, raving because it's my favorite, it's seasonal, and I scored the last one of the shelf. My boyfriend said I reminded him of the memes. I haven't actually seen any, now that you mention them I'll have to look it up.

    1. Mmmmmm, pumpkin body butter! Soldier Boy teases me relentlessly about my love of pumpkin. It makes me crazy, but heck… pumpkin makes me happy, so I'm just going to roll with it!
