Jumpsuit: Express c/o | Heels: Express c/o

This season Neal and I have quite a few weddings to attend (including our own in July!) and we love dressing up.  The best part about attending special occasions together is getting ready. We teamed up with Express to share a peek of our “getting ready” routine, and our look for dressing for special occasions.

Neal loves his music (he puts together the best playlists!), so he’ll set that up while we are getting dressed, doing our hair, my makeup etc. Next, we like to get in the spirit with a little bubbly! I love helping him with his tie, and snapping a few selfies together before we head out the door.

For special occasions, we will usually try to co-ordinate with each other outfit wise (not in a corny way), but more in the regard of complimenting our looks with one another. We usually go for the classic black and white for weddings, but in this case Neal did a well-cut grey suit for himself and I went for a retro jumpsuit (both from Express). I kept things really minimal and classic with straight hair, diamond studs and a nice pair of heels. It took a jumpsuit, which can usually be seen as a casual piece up a notch by being a little more understated. I like to play up the yes with false lashes for events just to give the look a little more glam.

What are your getting ready routines? Let me know in the comments below!

Thank You to Express for partnering on this post and thank you to my handsome fiancé Neal for making a cameo!
