A Basic Autumn Day

I came accross the "article" from Buzzfeed: 25 Things All Basic White Girls Do During The Fall naming cliches that are found on the Instagram accounts of basic white girls.  I was conflicted thinking the list was funny, but it is also insulting since I have taken pictures of many of these fall cliches. My favorite season is fall, it has been my entire life (since I was born on the first day of fall), and I definitely do not consider myself basic. 

I decided to do most of the things on this list, because.. I love a good challenge. I did modify it a bit to make sense for an Instagram photo challenge.  Please share the list via Instagram and take part in the Fall Cliche Photo Challenge with me.. Of course, make sure to hashtag your photo with #FallCliche, and any other fall hashtags. :)

Here is the full list... 

1. Get on that Pumpkin Spice Latte grind.
