I get it — not everyone is into fall. For some, fall is a time of mourning summer…but who said you can’t mourn with a cup of a pumpkin spice latte from your local coffee shop. Add neutrals, some reds, cozy up with a good book in your plaid blanket throw, and light that pumpkin spice candle. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying the little things in life. No matter how basic, or how others may perceive it, if it makes you happy and isn’t harming anyone then, embrace the basic-ness of fall in all of its glory. Go ahead, spice up your life!
