If Summer Had Handoff Notes For Fall

September 29th 2015

Is it just me?

Or is it gettin real WINDY up in here?!

Haven't noticed...

Haven’t noticed…

 

Listen.

I think I know why.

IT'S FALL YA'LL.

IT’S FALL YA’LL.

 

The tried and true rotation of seasons is at it again and summer has officially passed its party baton to fall in perfect cue.

But.

Is fall ready?

Does it know what it’s up against?!

I mean.

Probably.

It’s been doing this transitional song and dance for quite some time now.

BUT JUST IN CASE.

I teamed up with summer to create a list.

Handoff notes, if you will.

So this fabulous season will be well prepared for all the weathery, pumpkiny and football frenzy type shit coming its way.

BEHOLD:

Summer’s Handoff Notes For Fall

1. Be Gentle With The Weather

As modern-day humans, with easy access to air conditioning and heat at all times, we’ve become genuinely excellent at overdramatizing the weather whenst it changes against our wishes.

2 degrees difference than yesterday?

People (and puppies) panic:

CAN'T HANDLE IT.

CAN’T HANDLE IT.

 

Any semblance of a chill?

People prematurely think it’s winter:

Too soon, Ted!

Too soon, Ted!

 

Ease into it. Couple colorful leaves here in there. A periodic breeze that just tickles their hair, and you know, just none of this:

FALL, PLEASE.

 

2. Always Be Photo-Ready

Instagram won’t die.

And probably won’t for a while.

And you, my friend.

Are a photo-theme favorite in this picture-perfect world.

I'm a guilty bitch.

Guilty bitch.

 

So look damn good.

Make your leaves brighter. Shine your light just damn right and ensure every latte looks lovely no matter fricken what.

AW HELLZ YEAH.

AW HELLZ YEAH.

 

Trust me. People will…like…it.

3. Blame Everything On The Season After You *cough winter cough*

Dude.

You’ve got it easy.

Winter is a bitch and everyone knows it.

Bad blizzard?

Snowy commute?

Heating bill out the WAZOO?!

Wasn’t you.

It’s the other guy.

The next one.

At least that’s what you’ll be telling people.

“Winter keeps trying to come over early.”

“Snow? What snow? Look at my leaves!”

AW HELLZ YEAH. (distraction is key)

(distraction is key!)

 

“No idea why cotton scarves are suddenly $60 a pop. DAMNIT WINTER.”

^

Do that and people will continue to love your crisp, colorful ways.

4.  Become a Football Fan

Because tailgating:

5. Embrace Pumpkins

Physically.

And emotionally:

Too late.

Nice.

 

Because the damn vegetable is getting used as whatever the hell—spicy lattes, carved art, canned goodness. I mean, my LAWD can the orange oracle catch a damn break?!

Nope.

Nope.

 

Nope.

Nope.

 

Nope.

Nope.

 

So give it a go.

Nice.

Nice.

 

And when you’re done with that.

Leaf me be:

LET'S DO THIS.

Thanks.

 

Best regards and warm-like wishes,

Summer & Olive
