The Struggles of Being a Fall-Loving Basic White Girl Living in Florida

You guys. I love fall. Well I should say, I love the idea of fall. What basic white girl doesn't, am I right? I mean all of the pumpkin everything, apple spice scented candles...but wait, my list KIND OF stops there. Why?

Because I live in Florida.

Where it's still 90+ degrees outside most days. Where if I dare pull out my leggings and boots I will have sweaty calves before lunchtime. And where there are no changing of leaves for me to use as an Instagram backdrop for my PSL (gasp...the horror, I know).

BUT I do have a few tricks up my sleeve to make Florida feel as fall-esque as I can though:

- Blasting my A/C so I can wear my leggings and oversized sweaters without passing out (in the house at least...)

- Baking pumpkin muffins and drinking pumpkin coffee all day, every day

- Lighting fall-scented candles around my house to accompany my gold/glittered pumpkins (see them up there? Aren't they so cute? 50% off at Joann's...YAAAS. Also that adorable mug is from Target)

- I still plan on hitting up a local pumpkin patch - I will just be wearing jean shorts and sandals in place of leggings and boots. You better believe I'll still be rocking a flannel though. Sweaty pits and all.

- Wine-colored manis + dark lips = heart eyes

So I'll just be over pretending that it's fall and patiently waiting for November/December/January when I can finally break out my leggings and boots.
