One easy way to spice up a basic OOTD up is by accessorizing. While accessorizing on its own can already be challenging, any girl would be hesitant to put on their best baubles—especially when they're hitting the road on foot. But you don't have to skip accessorizing if you're commuting to school anymore, Candy Girls! Below, we're showing you how you can take the bus or the train without scrimping on fashion and style.

We all know how the saying goes, "Go big or go home." But it doesn't always have to be that way when it comes to accessorizing.

When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
