Confession: I already own way more fall clothes than any Florida girl ever should. However, the heat doesn’t stop me for keeping an eye out for some future fall essentials, or from sipping the occasional hot grande soy PSL.
| one | I have been loving flannels lately. Not only are they the perfect layering essential, but by themselves they can give off such an effortless look. I’m pretty picky when it comes to the color combos, but this white and navy Rails flannel is so much yaaas.
| two | HOW comfy do ponchos look? I’ll be honest, when I saw one in American Eagle I was a little confused. Where were the sleeves?! When I realized what it was, I kind of loved it. Ponchos are basically the fall/winter version of those lightweight kimonos we all know and love so much. Another great layering piece. It’s like a blanket that’s socially acceptable to wear out in public. #FashionWin
| three | Stripes here, stripes there, stripes everywhere. Pretty much every striped dress that I’ve seen on Pinterest has made it to my fall/winter closet board. I love how casual they are, and how adorable they look with booties. I’m looking WAY ahead, but it’s definitely a piece that could go from winter to spring. Which also means I’d be able to wear it for most of the year bc LOL Florida.
| four| Oh, the J. Crew herringbone vest. Such a sore subject. It’s a closet staple that I regret not buying last year, and a piece that my closet still mourns for not having yet. The one shown in my collage is “steely grey”, but I refuse to settle for any color other than the traditional black patterned one.
| five | Currently I have two big floppy hats from American Eagle, but I’m convinced I need a smaller version. This Nordstrom hat looks like it would be a perfect fall staple. Gimme all da colors.
| six | Out of all of the boots that I have, I still don’t own a pair of tall black ones. It’s shameful, really. I think these are probably the highest ranked item on my list of fall wishes (why did I list these last?). Frye boots are just so classic, and these specific ones have back deets for ya feets. The zipper detailing pretty much screams “Kahla, you NEED these.”
Although I was born and raised in the Sunshine State, it’s safe to say my closet is anything but Florida-esque. Seasons would be nice, especially so then I could validate why I own more sweaters than there are “cold” days in Florida.

Always acknowledge & celebrate your self victories - even small ones 🥳. Last month I set a goal for myself to close all of the rings on my Apple Watch every single day in October. And I DID IT. 💪🏻
I’m pretty obsessive about closing my rings, but completing them every day for a month was something I had never done before 😬. I held myself accountable any way I could. I’d wake up early for workouts to close my Exercise Ring if I knew the day would be busy. If I passed out early on the couch I’d set an alarm for the later hours of the night to make sure I could stand up and close my Stand Ring. I kept my body moving to hit my Move Ring even if it was minutes before bed (in case you’re wondering- doing the electric slide over and over will get you there 🎶). October was the month I was going to close all of the rings and I committed myself to it. No excuses.
Closing all of my rings on 10/31 was equal parts exciting and relieving. I had pushed myself every day for 31 days straight. Looking at my Health App screenshot for October literally gives me all of the FEELS 🥰. I might just make it a goal again for December (right now I’m focusing on closing my rings 5x per week).

My favorite crafting project? COCKTAILS 🤪 #ad SAVE THIS COCKTAIL RECIPE FOR LATER. When I’m the one crafting cocktails in this house I have three rules to follow: 1. It must be easy to make (the less ingredients the better), 2. It absolutely has to be gram worthy (otherwise what’s the point?), 3. It better go down smooth. This @empress1908gin Empress & Elderflower cocktail hits all the marks (+ it was the fan fave to make on stories!!). 🌺
HOW TO MAKE:
Pour 2oz @empress1908gin over ice
Top with 3oz elderflower tonic water
Garnish with a grapefruit slice
That’s it - that’s the drink. Is this easy or what? Equal parts refreshing & floral. Check out that color too 😍. @empress1908gin is distilled with butterfly pea blossoms which turn the cocktail to this hue when reacting with tonic water. Love a sippable science project moment especially when it looks this pretty and tastes this good. 💜 #EmpressGin #EmpressFL #EmpressAtHome...
outfit mirror pic, but what am I actually wearing? that’s a secret I’ll never tell xoxo gossip girl 😏. I’ve immersed myself back into the world of my favorite upper east siders - rewatching #GossipGirl while I workout has been the best way to pass by the cardio minutes 👏🏻.
