Fall Fails: 12 Times Autumn On Instagram Looked Nothing Like Real Life

Ah, fall.

It's the glorious time of year when the leaves change and the magic of pumpkin spice fills the air.

But above all else, it's the season when girls go absolutely HAM posting the most basic sh*t known to mankind on Instagram.

Don't get me wrong. I love the autumn season just a much as the next Starbucks-sipping white girl.

When it comes to showing off this glorious season on social media, autumn isn't always all cozy sweaters, pretty colors and whipped cream topped PSLs like basic bitches will have you believe.

Yep, when it comes to capturing all the lovely sights of fall, there tend to be two types of people in this world.

On one hand, there are those who romanticize the sh*t out of this season and fill their Instagrams with carefully curated collages of magical apple orchards, Uggs, fall foliage and Halloween spirit.

On the other hand, there are those who aren't afraid to show the fall season for what it really is, uploading photos of everything from gloomy weather and rotting piles of wet leaves to sweater-weather outfit fails.

Let's be real, we all know fall looks a lot different when it's not hiding behind a Valencia filter.

Take a look at the pictures below to see autumn on Instagram versus autumn IRL.
