Like it does every year, summer has come and gone so fast! Though beach season may be approaching an end, us NYgals have the gorgeous season of fall to look forward to.
Sweater weather comes with a plethora of photo ops; from sultry makeup shades to upstate apple picking, there’s more than enough inspiration to make your feed pop with stunning seasonal snaps.
Leaves, Buns, and Books? YAS!
Fall is that comfy time of year where you can throw on a cardigan and finally feel ready to put the oven to use again without feeling like you’re about to melt in your apartment. Cinnamon buns, a good book, and some super cute fallen leaves get the autumn season rolling in, with a strong statement of all things cozy. Want to add to the vibe even more? Light a candle or two. You can be surrounded by the crisp smell of fall in your apartment 24/7!
Very few things are more fitting to (pumpkin) spice up your feed than some fabulous Halloween decor. While one of our favorite harvest holidays is still almost two months away, there’s no reason not to get some Instagram inspiration to get you into the spirit! You don’t have to splurge in order to transform your pad into a spooky paradise either; starting around September, you can easily come across some wallet-friendly decorations at stores such as Target, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and even your local dollar store.

It’s undeniable that one of the best parts of fall is planning out what elaborate makeup to do with your Halloween costume. You don’t have to wait for Halloween to go all-out on some seasonally appropriate beauty trends, though! Dark lips, bold eyeshadows, and generally vampy vibes are all the rage this time of year. There is no better reason to channel your inner Elvira than some happy hour drinks under the full moon. Want to know our favorite lipsticks for fall? Take a look here.
Cheers to Apple Picking/Cider Season!

“Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple…” 🍎Clearly, Rowling didn’t mean a Katy apple since those are so brilliantly red they look like something out of Snow White 🍎🍎🍎PS shop this look in my stories #quietinthewild #aseasonalshift#whimsicalwonderfulwild#apples#redapples#applepicking#nibloggers#niblogger#heradventures#sheisnotlost#helloseptember#hygge#autumnvibes#modclothsquad#whpcolorpalette
Few Autumn-themed pictures are more perfect for the ‘gram than those of a day spent picking apples. Grab some of your best friends, rent a Zipcar and head upstate for a weekend spent grabbing some of the ripest apples, attending cider tastings, and picking pumpkins. You can check out a wellness resort, book a cheap Airbnb, or pack up the tent and bug spray for a refreshing night of camping under the stars. You’ll come back with some goodies and more importantly, priceless memories with your girl squad.
How About a Road Trip?
While on the topic of apple picking, why not make a trip out of it? Grab bae or your BFFs to make some memories driving through small towns, orchards, and campgrounds. There’s nothing like taking a few days off from city life to enjoy the smell of pine trees and freshly fallen leaves, not to mention the cutest roadside diners perfect for snapping a couple of pics. You’ll come across plenty of fun fall activities during your travels, such as boozy hayrides and once October hits haunted houses!
