153 fall captions for Instagram you simply won't be-leaf

Pair one of these short or funny sayings with photos of changing leaves, pumpkins and everything else autumn-inspired.

Sweater weather is finally here and we are o-fall-cially in for all things autumn!

Pumpkins, changing leaves, warm apple cider and cozy flannels...what could be better?

Nothing, that's what. Which is why we've compiled this list of unbe-leaf-able fall Instagram captions to help celebrate the spirit of the season.

Oh sure, we're more than happy to pack up those turtlenecks when spring arrives. But we're even happier when the time comes to break them out again, because that means autumn has returned.

From Halloween to Thanksgiving, there are so many things to enjoy about this time of year. If you're on the hunt for some fall captions to post with your inspired snaps on Instagram, get ready to dive into this collection of short, cute and funny sayings, which are all just right for whatever dreamy pics you've taken.

We've even got some clever autumn puns to choose from like "Fall aboard!" and "Oh my gourd!"

Need a cute caption for the apple crisp you whipped up in the kitchen? Try, "Go on, bake my day." Or, if you and your boo (sweetheart or ghost, either works) want to post a funny couples pic of you choosing a pumpkin, try "Looks like I picked a good one."

Whatever you need, you're sure to find it fall, er, we mean all, right here.
