32 Quotes For First Day Of Fall If You're All About "Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice"

By

Your Friday is about to get a whole lot better, because today, Sept. 22, marks the very first official day of fall. I don't know about you guys, but I already did my happy dance when I got out of bed this morning. Even though September is notoriously sweltering (seriously though, why is it 90 degrees in my college town?!), we can still celebrate this special day by posting quotes for first day of fall, along with our most basic pictures on Instagram.

The first day of fall is something to be remembered. It's the gateway to new beginnings, the promise of cooler, beautiful weather, colorful leaves, and lots of awesome fall activities to cross off the bucket list. It means wearing your favorite sweaters, jeans, and blanket scarves on a daily basis, and it certainly calls for sipping your fall drink of choice on your walk to class or work. Basically, autumn is the boss of all the other seasons, because, in my opinion, it's the only one that actually lives up to all of the expectations we have. So, naturally, the best way to take on the day is by going out, making the most of it, and snapping some pictures along the way. Whether you're stopping into Starbucks for your Pumpkin Spice Latte, heading to a local apple orchard with your friends, painting a pumpkin, or even just showcasing your favorite cozy fall sweater, your Instagram is going to need a little love. As the perfect pairing for your photos, these 32 captions will capture all of your fall feels.
