Fall Favorites

It’s that time of year again. Leaves are turning color. Days are getting chillier. Basic girls everywhere are douching themselves with pumpkin spice lattes. It’s Fall! Autumn! Sweater Weather! Gettin’ Hard Again for Cardigans!

In honor of the changing of the seasons, I thought I’d share a few of the things that I’ve been #loving for fall.

CUFFED JEANS AND ANKLE BOOTS

This photo would be ankle porn in the 1800s, which is fitting because the camera on my non-smartphone probably functions with technology from the 1800s. Also, that black thing is a beetle I killed because it ruined my photo composition. That’s why you can only see one of my ankle cuffs. Because the beetle distracted me. Not because I’m a bad photographer.

HANDMADE WIRE RING

My brilliant and talented brother made this ring out of various wires. It’s perfect for fall because it’s copper colored, which is totally a fall color if I say it is with enough confidence. Also, MY BROTHER MADE THIS WITH HIS HANDS AND WILL POWER. Being talented and awesome is very in for fall.

That dead daddy long legs in the corner is a metaphor for the death of summer. Mostly because it’s been there since the beginning of summer.

SUCCULENTS IN RE-PURPOSED CONTAINERS

These plants are an autumn favorite for me because I somehow haven’t killed them yet. The one on the far left was a gift from last Christmas. The fact that it’s survived almost a year under my care is worthy of multiple blog posts.

The cactus and the other succulent are planted in old candle jars because I’m a millennial stereotype.

Here they are next to a dead white moth. For scale.

TINY LIPSTICKS

Lately, I’ve been wearing lipstick like a grown-ass lady. However, it all comes off within the first couple hours because I touch my face more than Miley Cyrus in her Wrecking Ball music video. (She touches her face a lot in that video. That’s why it was so controversial, right?)

If you’re wondering why nothing is in focus in this picture, it’s because you’re, like, missing the point. It’s not because I’m a bad photographer.

The color of the dead spider in the foreground pairs well with any of these lip colors.

DON’T SAY THE WORD SHIT MATCHBOX

This wonderful piece of art is a giant, tipi-shaped matchbox. I know. I don’t get it either, but it’s currently my favorite thing I own. I also got it for free.

The tiny green bug in front of it died because the whole situation was too beautiful.

La vida es mágica.

What are you #loving this #fall? Is it all the #dead bugs around your house?
