A Sequin Dress to Wear After the New Year

the perfect sequin dress to wear after the new year - M Loves M @marmar

You guys, did I tell you what we did for New Years? A whole lot of nothing! We had just driven back from Cambria so we were exhausted, especially the little guy. Traveling with the little one on a road trip is a lot of work. And takes almost double the time. Nevertheless, Matthew and I were able to have a nice little dinner just the two of us. Although, of course, now I can’t remember what we had. Probably some pasta and definitely some crusty bread with olive oil. That’s what we ate pretty much every night in December on our “Pasta Parade.” January has been rough food-wise! I wore this pretty sequin dress because even if you’re home, it’s nice to dress up for a special night like nYE.

If you’re looking for a sequin dress to wear after the new year, I love this bronze one! The thing I really love about this dress is that it’s a more classic sequin dress style- not too clubby/crazy. And I think it would be gorgeous for any event, any time of year, when you want to wear a little sparkle! Because a little sparkle is always a good thing!

This dress feels a little mod with the silhouette {shift style with bell sleeves}, so I styled my hair more straight and added big sunnies and bow heels. After wearing this dress, it made me realize how much I really love this cut. I feel like I need more dresses that are in this loose swing style. It’s just so easy for day to day, and not tight or uncomfortable. Love the idea of getting a more casual dress like this one and pairing it with a cute pair of sneakers. Speaking of sneakers, I just got this pair and I’m obsessed! Aren’t they fun? I’m definitely trying to amp up my sneaker game since I’m so busy running after Augustine now. Heels seem to only work for the weekends!

Hope you all are having a great day! If you want to see another favorite outfit lately, I love this casual one with the striped sweater. That sweater is so comfortable and it’s great to layer with!

    LOVE the shape of this dress and the pattern/sequins are so fun! This style is so flattering and comfy while looking totally put together. Great look!

  • Allegra Liu

    Gorgeous dress! I love the deco pattern and mod shape. Perfect with the coral heels.

    • thanks so much Allegra!! The shoes are actually more pink but the editing makes them look coral. Love the idea of wearing a pair in that shade!

  • I do love dresses with a mod silhouette but I am more prone to wear them to work. Although, this dress is perfect for a girly night out or for date night. I’m a sucker for sequins 😀

    This is a lovely dress and definitely something that can be worn outside or beyond NYE. I can see that the sequins are more subtle and I just love the silhouette.
