Happy New Year! Outfits for NYE 2013, First Day of 2014

Here's what I wore on New Year's Eve:
Away From blue australian summer NYE outfit glitter foil tank lace skirt

rebecca minkoff metallic silver mini MAC bag
Sunglasses: gifted Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Chanel necklace
TopFrench Connection feather foil singlet
Skirt: Cotton On metallic lace tulip skirt in frosted almond/silver
ShoesNine West silver strap sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle on other arm
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC


Had to wear something sparkly for NYE! Decided to double up on the sparkle a little with the metallic lace skirt and glitter singlet. I think they looked okay together, not really possible to have too much glitter going on for a new year's eve outfit!

DH, Cooper and I had a quiet new years eve, relaxing and reflecting on 2013 and what's to come in 2014.
Blog wise, I've had this blog 2 years now! This year I will continue trying to wear more of my wardrobe, reducing what I already own and slowing down my purchasing.
It's been great getting suggestions and opinions from people who read along, thank you to everyone who leaves a comment or sends me an email. Your honest opinions and feedback are always welcome.
Thank you for following along, or just dropping by, and seeing what I've been wearing each day.

Here's hoping we all have a wonderful 2014!


Last worn: Rayban wayfarers, glitter tank, metallic lace skirt, silver sandals, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC.



Here's what I wore to today:
jeanswest ombre tank half tucked stripe maxi skirt sorbet bal city bag

balenciaga sorbet city bag
Tank: gifted Jeanswest 'Macy' ombre tank in 'very berry' 
SkirtAT by Atmos&Here Mars maxi skirt in white and navy
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted gold bangle set and Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle on other arm
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet


Casual outfit for a relaxing start to 2014! :) The top has beautiful beading detail on it so didn't think a necklace was necessary, just kept it simple. Probably wouldn't pair the skirt and top together though, the top's lined which made it a little tricky to tuck in perfectly. Loved the colours together, but will try a different combination next time.


Last worn: stripe maxi skirt, Balenciaga studded sandals, Balenciaga sorbet city bag. First time I've worn the tank as it was a birthday gift.

Linking up with Trend Spin Linkup, Three-fer Thursday, Friday's Fab Favourites today.

  8. That double metallic is nice Mica! Also that ombre top. I love your goals for 2014. Good luck with them girl. You will do well. Thank you so much for the compliment. I've been blogging for 3 years now. My prior blog was SassyUptownChic which I kept for only a year (someone else has taken that blog name now. hahaha). It was pure fashion and actually more successful than A Very Sweet Blog. But it wasn't me. So I made the change. That's my little history :) Happy New Year to you! Kisses for everybody!

  9. Happy new year to you and your family!! 2013 was a good year! I got to know a few very nice fellow bloggers like yourself and really bonded over our love of handbags and fashion :) I don't normally see Balenciaga sandals been worn very often so I was excited to see you have a pink pair!! I look forward to 2014 with better decision making and lots of happiness and health to you ❤️

  31. Aargh that bag is so stunning!!!! Perfect to celebrate the NY:p Congratulations on the two year blog anniversary :) And it's very interesting to read that you want to slow down purchasing instead of buying more, I am the complete opposite but maybe I should take some time off from all the buying (will be good for my wallet and maybe my soul:p) xx

    1. I'm finding I'm running out of space and not re-wearing what I own very often, so I definitely need to reduce the size of my wardrobe and buy less!

  41. Happy New Year Mica!!! Love the metallic outfit! And that ombre top is so pretty. I've always wanted something ombre in my closet but haven't found the right piece yet. Like you, I am trying to use what's in my closet and weed out things that I just don't love.

  43. I like the play of the ombré top against the striped skirt. It's a great girly casual look. The bag is lovely. I am loving that shade of pink. I hopped over from a link up co-hosted by Style Elixir. So glad I stopped by. Enjoy your weekend.
