I posted a coordinate poll on my Facebook page. My followers chose Melty Cream Doughnut for my cafe meetup. It's the first time I have worn the dress out. The print was perfect for this event!
The weather on this day was quite a challenge! In Maine, it was bitterly cold. To top it off, we had 40 mph winds. When I left my apartment, I wished I had worn a more simplistic wig. Once I arrived in the downtown part of the city, I parked and made my way to Dobra Tea, the cafe location.
I had only been to this cafe once, and that was years ago. The cafe has a very relaxed vibe. There were tons of cafe chairs, couches, and lounge chairs. They even have a section that you can access, without shoes, for comfortable rug sitting. The other patrons were reading or working on computers.
When I arrived, I was given menus and told to sit anywhere. We were anticipating three attendees today, so I choose one of the cafe tables. I took the time to research what I would like to order.
The menu was HUGE! There were so many different teas and snacks to choose from across fifteen pages. To say that there was a diverse selection of teas in particular would be an understatement.
Cierra arrived shortly after. Cierra had contacted me first via my website. I was so nice to connect with her in person! It's always nice to meet new lolita friends. We have a lot in common, too!
I ordered the black tea with vanilla and a gluten and dairy free ginger snap. Both of these were very delicious! I had to take a picture of Cierra holding her cookie because it matched her coord perfectly!
The cafe was a perfect place to chat. We had a very good time getting to know one another. As my parking meter deadline approached, Cierra asked if there were any good shops nearby. We decided to take a trip to the next town over and explore the mall. I heard that new places had opened there.
Lolli and Pops
What could be sweeter for a February meetup than a trip to a candy shop? Lolli and Pops was decorated for Valentine's Day. Since the shop was new, we had never seen it before! Cierra and I were excited to explore this new business. Our coordinates fit in nicely with our sweet surroundings.
From cookies to caramels, cotton candy to gummi bears, there wasn't anything we couldn't find. Each item in the shop was wrapped in such a cute way! I had to take a few goodies home.
The shop was the perfect place for coordinate photos! We only took a few, since it was pretty crowded on a Saturday. The staff was super friendly and the other customers liked our outfits, too!
Here are a few shots of Cierra's cute coordinate! The dessert case was a great place to take photos.
Cierra took a coordinate shot of me, and we took a few selfies together. This one was my favorite!
