It’s that time again! Cold air, leggings, big sweatshirts, uggs, bonfires, and pumpkin spice everything. These things make, what we call, a basic fall white girl. Get out your cameras girls because it’s finally fall! Head to the pumpkin patch for a little photo shoot and get your fall on. 

What even is fall without pumpkin spice? Pumpkin spice plays a big role in a basic fall white girl’s life. Pumpkin spice literally makes a basic fall white girl. Ashlyn Thompson, CA eighth grader, says that “uggs, sweaters, and pumpkin spice everything” are very important during the fall. There are two pumpkin spice things that basic fall white girls must have, pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin spice candles. 

Pumpkin spice lattes make basic fall white girls complete. If there is no pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks in the girls hand, then they are not a basic fall white girl. Pumpkin spice latte is coffee that is flavored with a special creamer, and sometimes it may even have whipped cream on top. Pumpkin spice lattes are very important. These lattes set the mood for fall and get girls in the spirit. “It’s kind of like hot chocolate. Hot chocolate sets the mood for Christmas, and pumpkin spice lattes set the mood for fall,” said tenth grader, Maggie Claire Thomas. 

Of course, the big thing is the pumpkin spice latte, but pumpkin spice candles are also very important. Candles make basic fall white girls complete, especially pumpkin spice candles. The girls need at least five fall candles. “You can never have too many candles. If your room does not smell like fall then your doing something wrong,” said tenth grader, Carli Cooper. Other popular fall candles are apple cinnamon, pumpkin cupcake, sweater weather, apple pie, and warm vanilla sugar. 

Cooper would most definitely be considered a basic fall white girl. Cooper burns pumpkin spice candles in her room all of the time. When asked if Pinterest and fall bucket lists’ were important for fall, Cooper replied, “ I get stuff off of Pinterest and my board for fall is legendary. I do not come up with my own ideas anymore. And yes, it is definitely an essential to have a fall bucket list.” Fall bucket lists may include carving pumpkins, spending time with family, baking a pie, and of course, drinking a pumpkin spice latte. 

Fashion for basic fall white girls usually includes leggings, over-sized sweatshirts, fuzzy socks, and some type of uggs. Fuzzy socks really set the mood for any type of season, especially fall. Fuzzy socks make everything complete. “If there are no fuzzy socks, then there is no fall,” exclaimed Cooper. Most basic fall white girls need at least two pairs of uggs. The slipper kind and the boot kind. Both are very important for fall, especially when it is cold. It is always important to the girls to have a cute pair of fall shoes. 

Weather affects the mood for fall tremendously. If it is not cold, then it is not fall. It is not fall unless it is chilly outside. “There is nothing like seeing the first leaf on the ground and breathing in that cold, crisp air. That’s how you know it is fall,” said Cooper. Bonfires are very important to basic fall white girls, or almost anyone who enjoys fall. If it is not cold outside, then there are usually no bonfires.

In some ways, basic fall white girls can tie in with VSCO girls. They are both very basic, which means that they are very popular and very well known. Both VSCO girls and basic fall white girls wear big sweatshirts or t-shirts, leggings, and some type of popular shoes. They also both like to be very artsy. Basic fall white girls like to be artsy and take cute pictures with pumpkins, and VSCO girls like to take pictures of summery things. 

There are also differences in the VSCO girls and basic fall white girls. Basic fall white girls are popular during the fall, duh. VSCO girls are popular during the summer. Also, their style is very different. VSCO girls like to wear t-shirts, Birkenstock’s, and shell necklaces. Basic fall white girls like to wear leggings, sweatshirts, and Uggs. They are very similar, but also very different. 

Pumpkin carving is also something that contributes in the making of a basic fall white girl. What is fall without pumpkin carving? When asked if basic fall white girls are big on pumpkin carving, Thomas replied, “Yes because they love to post it on Instagram because it’s cute and artsy.” Many basic fall white girls love to post fall things on Instagram, and some even have fall themed Instagram accounts. 

Basic fall white girls are, well, very basic. They are very important to the fall season. Fall would not be complete if there were no basic fall white girls!
