It's that time of year again -- time to live your very #Blessed #Authentic #VSCO life. What better way to do that than with our annual autumn gift guide?
1. Badge Attitude Mug in Blackwater Falls, Modcloth $14.99
Let's get real, you're not being your #authentic self if you're not going camping this fall (preferably outside of Portland). Nothing goes better with a campfire than this mug filled with your favorite pumpkin spice-flavored spiked drink.
2. Been Great Sightseeing You Print in "Joshua," Modcloth $29.99
Last year, Mike and I headed out to Joshua Tree to celebrate my 30th in style and make friends with a tarantula. Can't make it out there yourself? This print will make your friends think you did.
3. Lomography LomoInstant Wide Camera, Urban Outfitters $259
No one will ever believe that you went on that autumn hike upstate if you don't have the photos to prove it. And after all, whats the point of going anywhere if you can't make others jealous (#fomo)? Be truly authentic and take your fall foliage pictures with old style but new insta-camera. It's like Instagram #IRL.
4. Campfire Cookbook, Barnes and Noble $15.95
Who wants to eat canned beans and hot dogs every day? Step up your camping game with this campfire cookbook and impress your friends who don't want to admit that they also hate camping.
5. Wool Panama Hat, Sole Society $39.95
Fall is really the only time you can get away with wearing a felt-brimmed hat. Spring and summer are too hot and winter is too windy. So take advantage of the two weeks of perfect weather and get yo'self a hat.
6. City Anorak, Everlane $98
Everyone thinks that fall weather is perfect until it rains. And it will rain. And be chilly. But also somehow still warm. Deal with the ever-changing weather with this new stylish coat from one of my favorites, Everlane.
7. ALDER Candle, The Motley $28
Wait, your apartment doesn't smell like a forest after a brief rain shower!? Take care of that with this scented candle. You'll immediately feel like you've been living authentically in Oregon for the last three days.
8. Reusable Canvas Tote, Madewell $5
Want to get your #BasicBitch on and go apple picking this year? Well kudos to you for letting your friends convince you that you should pay someone to let you do manual labor (even though it's the same price you'd pay for apples at the grocery store). You'll be needing a bag to carry home all your hard-earned fruit. This one is great and confirms that you've done a good job just in case you needed more reassurance.
Happy fall y'all!
