For the next few months, we’ve all got packed schedules full of pumpkin patches, apple orchards and traipsing through piles of leaves in stranger’s backyards. (There’s no shame in your leaf game.) We’ll show you what you’ll need for pumpkin-inspired fuel plus the key pieces and products you’ll be falling for.
Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, Pumpkin Scone, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin
I mean, we had to. The Pumpkin Spice Latte arguably gave birth to the Basic Girl movement. This brand of autumn-alluring brew has left such an indelible mark in pop culture that Starbucks is simply marketing it as PSL, updating it’s Twitter feed like a secret society’s leader is returning. Plus, if you’re not feeling pumpkin-ish enough SB’s got you covered with a bevy of other items on the menu designed to satisfy.
One major fall fashion trend you’re bound to see is the over-the-knee boot. Pair it with a skirt (this one is under $5) for a night out with your girlfriends or over distressed skinnies (we love this pair) for the chilly, haunted hayrides we’re all bound to endure. These pumps are guaranteed to make a statement as you strut into the season.
Krispy Kreme Pumpkin Spice Glazed Doughnuts
September 8, for one-day only, calling all lovers of doughnuts. You can intersect your addiction to autumn with these pumpkin glazed delights from Krispy Kreme. Make sure to bring your best patience for the long lines, and take a bite of some breakfast made for the basic in us all.
Bath and Body Works Fall Collection
You’re not living your Basic Girl life to the fullest until you smell like fall. Bath and Body Works, per usual, has got you covered. Want a whiff of apple cinnamon? The scent of latte? There’s a lotion, spray or body wash to help fulfill your typical tendencies.
Fall-inspired graphic tees
Rep your fall-time enthusiasm with a graphic tee proclaiming your love of bonfires, tailgating, or, you guessed it, pumpkin spice. Pair it with a plaid, beanie or infinity scarf and you’re ready to conquer all of your autumn to-do’s.
Caramel Apple/Apple Cider Mimosas
After beginning your autumn afternoon with a PSL or pumpkin spice doughnut, take it over to happy hour where a caramel apple or apple cider mimosa is only a few sips away. This is the perfect fall refresher at a Halloween party or Thanksgiving dinner, and can even be served in a festive fall glass.
Fall Harvest Hallmark movies
This one is a personal fave for this basic girl when the leaves begin to change. They’re cheesy, predictable and the amount of fall-inspired attire is plentiful. Curl up, sip on your PSL and get ready for a marathon of Fall Harvest movies that are the ultimate guilty pleasure of the season. P.S. Christmas film start in November!!!!
Bundle up, crunch through some foliage and stay basic, ladies. This pumpkin spice won’t drink itself.
