Brunching On The River
Fall is finally here which is my FAVORITE season.I love seeing the color of the leaves changing, to the climate dropping and to being able to bundle up in front of a fireplace (which I finally now have) and watch some Netflix with a glass of wine. This passed weekend I hit up a new type of brunch that’s got a heck of a view!
As per usual, I did my usual monthly blogger brunch. Cherein and I meet up every month and anytime I head to Portland I make sure to meet up with any gals that I know, follow or want to meet and it seems like it’s flourished the most there.
I’ve been DYING to go to this place since I moved to Eugene. I biked by a lot last summer and would tell my boyfriend every single time WE HAVE TO GO THERE. Brunch on the river? I mean, I don’t think it gets better than that. Unbeknownst to me, Sweet Waters is actually inside a hotel/inn. Actually a really freaking cool inn, so if you’re ever in the EUG stay at The Valley Inn, it’s stunning. While the menu wasn’t anything crazy, more of classics and easy go-tos, I actually picked out something out of the ordinary. I got the biscuits and gravy which WAS AMAZING. Like unreal I tell you. Homemade biscuits and gravy like WOW. Cherein got an omelet which also looked divine.
By the way, they have a Bloody Mary bar, which I passed on. But we’ve already planned to go back and try it out! Scroll down for some yumminess.

As for the outfit, I went for something casual. I got my Sanctuary top at Adorn when I was in Portland last weekend and paired it with my JBrand jeans (absolute fave skinnies I got in NY) and my converse. The top is seriously so comfortable! I’ve already gotten many compliments about it. It’s long enough to wear with leggings or you can tuck it in like I did in a pair of skinnies. You can see this look on my Instagram!
What’s your favorite type of brunch to have? Do you prefer sweet over savory?
