How To Wear A Tunic Sweater
By Jess
25 Aug 2023

Happy Friday. We’re back in Vermont and getting settled/preparing for the school year. Ugh, back to school gives me anxiety, still. While we were away we had the garage addition insulated and all the electrical and plumbing roughed in. So exciting! Our list of projects is very long but I love watching this house take shape. I can’t wait to share more of this space during the fall and winter. Wishing you all a great weekend.

P.S. It sounds like everyone liked the new format of CRL that I introduced last week so I’m keeping it!

Here’s the best of the week… –Jess

I had no idea Renée Rapp (Sex Lives of College Girls) was also a singer but I love her new album.


My SIL gave me this no wire bra as a gift and it might be the most comfortable thing I’ve ever worn (as a bra). I ordered the plunge bra in black and it’s equally as comfortable.

If you want to try Merit’s new eyeshadow (it’s great) this set is perfect. Brows, lashes and shadow plus the No. 2 brush.

I finally decided to order these pants in another color because they are so comfortable and such good quality. I’ve worn them to death this summer.

One of my favorite Sézane sweaters now comes in a stripe version!

    I want to comment and every single topic, but I will refrain. I love the Newai bra and have switched to them as well. I will say, I didn’t like the padding because it was super thick and made my boobs look bigger, so I took them out and just put my nipple covers in instead. It is indeed the most comfortable bra ever. You have a great sil.

      That’s such a good idea. I didn’t even think to remove the padding but I actually don’t mind it. Seriously best bras ever.
