A Rainy Day in with Polette

Glasses: c/o Polette
What do you do when you have no work, are done with classes for the day, and it's raining cats and dogs outside? You bum around in your cutest, coziest nightgown, brew some coffee, pick up a new book, and pop on a pair of adorable glasses. Because ain't nobody got time to poke contacts into their eyes when you've got some serious lounging around to do!

These new glasses from Polette are different than any other pair I own, simply due to the massive size. Seriously, this frame is huge. I should do a side-by-side comparison of these frames and my dad's glasses. That's right, they're basically dad glasses. And you know what? I love them. Having a bigger frame means my periphery is no longer blurry, which I definitely appreciate.

Plus, the style is still appealing. I like them, and have gotten comments/compliments on them already! The best part? The "Stefano" frames cost a measly $9.99. That's the fantastic thing with Polette - you can have the best of both worlds with their glasses. Stylish and affordable? Now that's something I'll support any day. I can confidently recommend to anyone in need of some new frames to try Polette out!

If you're wondering how I'm getting along at my new place, this could sum up my life lately: classes, work, hitting the gym, and attending Cru. I decided to pop into one of the youth groups on campus to see what the people were like, and wow...I've never felt so genuinely welcomed by complete strangers. We'll see how it goes, but so far, I plan on going weekly.

Work has taken some adjusting to, because while it's the same chain as the previous coffee place I worked at, it's corporate, making it much more strict. We have a more rigid dress code for one thing (yuck), and rigorous structure. Not as laidback as my previous job. Ah well, I've been adapting, and the last time I worked I was on the espresso machine my whole shift! It almost felt like old times. The flow of making coffee drinks calmed my anxiety, and it felt good to settle back into a familiar routine. Tickets popping up, the drip of espresso hitting syrup, and the gentle hiss of steaming milk, and just me whirling everything around at the machine....yup, I was back in my happy place.

Hopefully things continue going up! Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement - you have no idea how much they lift my spirits some days. So thank you for being amazing everyone.

Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle;
Psalm 144:1

I"m SO glad you're settling in well, and finding a welcoming youth group is a real score, given how you and I feel about attending church regularly -- I hope it works out for you! And I totally feel for you with the uniform thing. Working for a corporation can be hard but hopefully the love of coffee can sustain you. ;)

Oh, cute glasses! You pull off the large frames extremely well. love!

Love rainy days for exactly that reason! That you can cozy up with a good book and just lounge around! You looked so cute doing it too!

Those glasses look so fun on you! I'm also really loving your kimono - so pretty!

Glad that you are getting into a routine and are meeting some people on campus - I remember that being super nerve-racking when I started college.

You have such cute rainy day style! I wish I had a robe that pretty, really nice print! :)

Good to hear the glasses are working for you too. And wonderful that you are adjusting to and enjoying your new job! :)

You look so cozy. Rainy days in are my favorite too. And I don't wear glasses but I like the idea of bigger frames - they make you look so studious but in a chic way haha. xx Kat

Love this little cozy photo shoot you did! The perfect way to spend a rainy day in.

Hope you're still settling into your new place nicely and keep going to those youth groups! The best way to make a place feel like home, is to find a community to embrace and vice versa. :)

Ooooh, I like the looks of that book! I have a couple different herb books that I love and while a few get a little more into the hippie area than I like (chakra and mystic qualities of plants - one book is really informative but the author is pretty set on the idea that plants have souls but she does such a great job lining out all of the properties of plants and their practical uses that I don't really mind) Haha, anyways, it looks so relaxing just to chill out on a rainy day - I luuuuuv your kimono, it's so pretty with the flowers! I'm sorry about your new place being a little more cooperate than the last, sometimes that can be a bummer but I'm sure you'll get use to the differences. I'm really happy that the youth groups have been so lovely as well, it can be really great to have a group like that in a new city.
