I don't go to many graduations, but holy cow, they are so much fun!
(Minus the whole "sitting for hours in an auditorium" part, lol)
So, mid last week I jumped on a plane to meet up with my best friends, Bre and Sam, in Boise, Idaho for the Boise State University 2016 Graduation! Last time Sam and I visited, we drove 12 long hours from San Jose. Upon our arrival, we vowed to never do that again lol.
However, one thing I absolutely love about BSU's campus are all the brick buildings. In SF, we definitely don't have enough brick, so this was a most welcomed change of scenery!
Saturday we had perfect and sunny "graduation" weather and had the best time out on the lawn after the ceremony with all the grads and their families!
I took this opportunity to note the various graduation outfits women were wearing. I saw a lot of dresses, big hats, and wedges. I noticed women were either really dressed up or really casual, so I was quite happy with my "in the middle" outfit.
I wanted a cute, casual, but put-together look and I think I hit the nail on the head with this off the shoulder spring look!
Since it's almost summer I tend to lean towards lighter colors because they brighten up any outfit and mainly because they make me feel so happy! The off the shoulder top was an absolute no brainer for cute/casual because it's an easy feminine piece - almost like a dress. Instead of wedges, I went for a chunky heeled sandal to mix it up!
Of course I had to throw on my new favorite bright pink lipstick from YSL for a little pop of color!
Here are a few other cute off the shoulder tops that you can use to create your own cute and casual grad look!

To end the afternoon, we all headed over to Cinder Wines in Garden City where Bre's grad party was being held! The wine was absolutely amazing!
(I bought 6 bottles of their Cabernet/Merlot/Malbec blend!)
I definitely recommend stopping by if you're in Boise!
The fun weekend consisted of reminiscing over memories from our last visit freshman year, copious amounts of alcohol (lol) and of course, plenty of goodbyes. These college grads really know how to celebrate their last weekend in Boise!
Now I'm back home in busy SF. There's only one week left till my birthday (almost feeling 22!) and then two weeks until we all go to Kona, Hawaii for Bre's grad present!!
P.S. Congratulations to Bre for graduating from BSU with a degree in Business Marketing and thank you for having the tripod (Bre, Sam and Char) tag along for the ride!
We love you!
