"The Women In The 'Christian Girl Autumn' Meme Want You To Know Something"

David Mack for Buzzfeed:

A three-year-old picture of two Southern influencers has gone viral in recent days and spawned a whole new meme called “Christian Girl Autumn”

...

He had no idea who the women in the meme were when he posted his tweet. “I literally googled ‘cute church outfits’ and ‘all scarf outfits’ and started using those pictures as reaction photos for my jokes,” he said.

“I tweeted it on August 9, and the next day I woke up to my phone blowing up,” he said.

...

Eventually, the picture found its way to the actual women themselves: bloggers and influencers Emily Gemma (pictured below, left) of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Caitlin Covington (right) of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

...

The Christian Girl Autumn photo was taken by Covington’s mom during a 2016 trip the two friends took to Highlands, North Carolina, to shoot their “fall content” for the season.

...

The pair also wanted to make it clear that their styles have since been updated.

...

by engaging with the memes online, the two women have only endeared themselves more to their online fans — particularly those on Gay Twitter.

...

Both ladies were happy to share some updated style tips for fall 2019.

Gemma said leopard and snakeskin prints are in, while “skinny jeans are over” and have been replaced by “cropped flare jeans.”
