The weather has been all sorts of crazy here in the PNW but we’ve been getting a lot more sun and soon the rain will be going away for good. Which means I’ve literally been spending all my weekends trotting around town and planning for big summer adventures. I’ve actually been holding onto this kimono specifically to wear for sunny days!
Now that the sun is peeping out of the clouds I’m gearing up for summer music festivals, wine tasting, traveling to other cities and well just enjoying some good ol’ sunshine. Since it was a gorgeous day out I brought out my Show Me Your Mumu kimono (prepare to be seeing this more this summer) which was perfect since it’s light and airy silhouette was just right for the weather.
One of the things I’m really trying to do is try more brunch places. While the brunch place I’ve been dying to go to since forever was closed, it gave me the opportunity to still try something else that’s also new.
I headed over to downtown after shooting all morning and talking blog stuff with fellow photographer friend Brandy, you can see that post here, and was ready for some serious grub. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve driven by this place and thought I NEED TO GO THERE. First I was dying to go there because their wine selection is supposed to be amazingggggg and then I heard they had brunch and I was like say whattttt?
Instead of sitting indoors, Luke and I sat in their little quaint outdoor area and ordered a glass of wine (which was amazing) and a beer for him. Summer in Eugene is known for it’s amazing weather and I know for sure my little kimono would be comfy outside. Even though it was way past noon I still wanted something breakfasty so I ordered eggs Benedict with pancetta and a side of potatoes. He ordered the breakfast calzone which literally was phenomenal. He always orders the best things so I had to try it. If you have a huge appetite I would go for the calzone as it’s literally ginormous. My Benedict was the perfect size. Scroll down for some seriously yummy food and what I wore to brunch.
What are some of your summer plans? Are you a kimono lover?
