If you are looking for the latest click. read. love. it has now moved over to substack! you can find it here.
Hello! This week felt long. That Halloween on a Tuesday really threw me. I’m so happy for a weekend with no plans. The first one in a long time. I’ve also had a really exciting week. For the first time in a long time, I’ve had a rush of creativity. The mental block I’ve been fighting with for the last 3 years just shifted. Almost in an instant (not really, but it felt that way) everything became more clear. And that leads me to this next part…
I’m making changes, big and small, to the blog, my social media presence, and my business. First and most importantly, Click. Read. Love. is moving over to Substack (along with some other content). After this week, all future CRL content can be found there. If you’re signed up for my email list you don’t have to do anything, it will arrive in your inbox! You can also access it via the site. If you’d like to receive it by email you can subscribe. My Substack is currently free, but you can make a pledge for a future subscription. It’s not required!
More to come. I hope you have a lovely weekend and enjoy this week’s links, there’s a lot of good ones! Here’s the best of the week. – Caylin and Jess

“Perhaps what I’m really writing about is reinvention, of building something new when our younger selves have miscalculated, or simply evolved, or like all of us at some point in our lives, need to make changes in order for life to feel good again.” A must read essay from my friend Victoria on being an OG Blogger, and what happens when our interests shift or when our values no longer align with the thing we created. – Jess

It wasn’t so long ago that feminists were called ‘hysterical’ by political experts and pundits for warning that Roe could be overturned.

The idea of cozy cardio is definitely intriguing. (Glamour)
On social media, silence is viewed as its own statement. Posting about the war though, can come with costs, including personal threats. (The New York Times)
Is the breakup dinner party exactly what you need? (Bustle)
“The adults in charge know what must be done, and they refuse to do it. Instead we relive this national, and for some, deeply personal trauma, over and over — in Lewiston, in Pittsburgh, in Buffalo, in Parkland, in Uvalde, in Orlando. We are unable, or unwilling, to prevent avoidable deaths.” (WBUR)
Apparently there was a massive vampire panic in New England in the 1800s? (The Boston Globe)

This was a really interesting article about Half Baked Harvest, it made me realize how I don’t really know much about her beyond her recipes. -Caylin (The New York Times)
Legitimately have been living in this fleece pullover from Dudley Stephens. With sweats, with jeans, with leggings, it is SO cozy and warm. FYI it runs pretty big and thought the photos show it almost looking cropped, it’s longer and oversized.
I love these straight leg jeans from Madewell. I wear them cuffed with sneakers or boots. They have just the right amount of stretch and fit true to size.
I just started reading Britney Spear’s memoir, The Woman In Me. I can tell it’s going to be a quick read, but so far it’s really good, albeit pretty heartbreaking too.
I had to exchange for a half size bigger but the Blundstone dress boot are a great mix of function and style. I got the rustic black.
