Wedding season has arrived. I’ve been to one majorly beautiful nuptial this summer and I have two more in the next couple months. I personally love celebrating love. But with love comes the question- what do I wear?!


This month, I have partnered with Express to help discuss what to wear not to the actual wedding but to an event equally as fun- the engagement party! I had so much fun shooting with my girl Jessi Malay (ugh, such a babe) in our outfits of choice. We clearly were on the same page because you can never go wrong with an all black ensemble! 

The rules here change a bit. Weddings range from causal to formal but usually tend to lean towards the formal side. When it comes to an engagement party think more in terms of something you could also translate to a chic night out. My mantra is: mix casual and semi-formal. Bonus is you can definitely repeat these pieces again with different outfits (I'm looking at you bridesmaids dress I wore ONCE). 

The main item to my look is this black maxi dress from Express. I love maxi dresses because they can be dressed up or down to compliment the occasion. You could stop here and look like a million bucks but layering this season will be BIG so I wanted to add more to my look. I paired the maxi with an off shoulder choker top and bag with pom pom details (similar here and here).

Other layering ideas to pair with a simple maxi include:

Cheers!
