I Absolutely Hate PSL’s, Can I Still be Basic?
About that cover photo:
I’m pretty sure that if you take the lid off your Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, it looks like that.
Pumpkin Sludge Latte. That’s what it should be called.
You may be wondering: why all the hate, Amy? What’s your deal?
Look, I’m sorry for hating on your most prized autumnal possession. I really am. Especially because, with every other Fall trend, I’m right there with you.
I’m basic, I swear. You know “basic”, right? It’s basically a white woman who wants to be part of whatever club is most popular right now. And right now, it’s all about the Fall season. Read on for all the many ways that I really am basic, I swear!
I love big sweaters. And lanterns.
I’m wearing a sweater right now even though it’s sixty-five degrees outside. And I’m inside. I love sweaters. And just look at how adorable that lantern is — it goes really well with her sweater, don’t ya think?
I love ugly boots. And colorful leaves.
I like cute boots, too. I love boots for kicking leaves, riding horses, and just standing around looking cute in my fall sweater. Summer is for sandals. But Fall is for big, clunky, muddy boots, y’all.
I love Fall weather. The wind, the rain . . . it’s so refreshing.
Ahhh, Autumn. A time for apple picking, pumpkin carving, and did I mention wearing sweaters? You’re going to need to bundle up when the temperature dips below seventy degrees (Fahrenheit) and that wind picks up.
But most of all, I love chai tea lattes. CTL’s are where it’s at.
I’m just going to say this:
CTL > PSL
Want to fight about it?! I’ll meet you in the schoolyard with my colorless, baggy sweater and bigass ugly boots on. Let’s do this. Then let’s head to Starbucks for a PSL . . . I mean, CTL. Yeah, CTL’s for life.
