Not So Basic, B*tch!

Not So Basic, B*tch!


It’s that time of the year… *DRUM ROLL PLEASE* Fall! I know what you’re thinking… SOOOOO BASIC. Actually, not so basic. With all the fall trends from the pumpkin spice lattes, and knit sweaters, etc., there’s something about those fall classics that have me so excited for the crisp weather! (whenever that decides to come).

The fall season comes with all the cute and comforting essential “basics” that make us all feel great throughout the season. Now, if you’re kind of new to this basic business – don’t worry, I gotchu. This is the “basic” starter kit to be the best BASIC bee out there.

  1. Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL)

This is a starter kit MUST. PSL too basic? Spice it up with some special requests. I ask for light soymilk or almond milk instead of regular dairy, and top it off with a drizzle of caramel syrup. Try adding cocoa or even remix it into a salted caramel PSL –  too much for me, but whatever floats your boat.

  1. White sneakers

For every season (except winter if you live in Canada), but there is just something extra magical about fall that makes white sneakers go with EVERYTHING! Whether you’re dressing up or down.

  1. Sweater Weather

Crisp weather, sweaters and cuddles to go around. The more oversizes the better in my opinion. Every kind if sweater: hoodies, turtleneck, knitted, cashmere, cardigans, slipover- you get the idea! Fall colour trend: Pantone Spicy Mustard

  1. Booties

For women and men, in every kind of  colour and style:  black, gold, leather, velvet, beads or pointed toe, there’s something for everyone. Trend Alert! Velvet block heels are the new basic!

      5. Pumpkin Patches

There is nothing more traditional (or basic) than visiting a pumpkin patch in the fall. It’s almost disgraceful if you don’t hit up the local patch and take a pic with the oversized fruit.

       6. Apple Picking

If you don’t go apple picking, you’re as bad as the girl who didn’t go to the pumpkin patch. There’s nothing more fun than a city girl taking the day to drive out to the country and collect some super fresh apples that would have cost you $.99 each at your local Metro.

Do these things and you’re on the right track to killing it this fall!
