This morning seemed like any other day. Your AC was still blasting, the guy next to you was still snoozing, and you still reached for your shorts and sandals (or rain boots, if you live in Florida) because it’s hot AF out there. But that doesn’t change the fact that for us die-hards, today is the first day of fall.
Sure, according to the calendar autumn doesn’t start until September 22. But for me (and for anyone else who understands the true magic of the season) fall starts on September 1. Fall starts today.
And because Starbucks understands all things basic, it’s supporting our slightly-unhinged views on the season. Starting today, you can officially get a pumpkin spice latte. But there’s a catch. To get your hands on the PSL-goodness, you have to either be a Starbucks Rewards member (lol like you’re not?) or you have to follow the Pumpkin Spice Latte Instagram account (I shit you not, this exists).
So to get a PSL from Instagram, you just click the link in the account’s bio and it gives you a pass to get your PSL on. And if you’re one of those people who hates fun, you can just wait until the public release date of our favorite fall beverage on September 6. Still way before the official start of fall, and just in time for us. Bring on the boots, the scarves, and pumpkin-flavored everything. It’s here. It’s *finally* here..
