OOTD: Casual Winter

We've always enjoyed looking at outfit of the day type posts. They are a great place to start when you're looking for style ideas not just for those schnazzy occassions but also for day-to-day inspiration. 
 
This ensemble is one we sported this week. With looming university exams, we don't have the energy or time to go all out with our outfits or to deck ourselves in accessories. We want something that is trendy without the fuss.
 
 
Here are some handy dandy tips
 
1. Bright colours
Beat exam blues by wearing something bright! In our experience, fun prints and bold colours are great when you need a little pick-me-up. A bright top like this cute sweater will also distract others from those late-night bags.
 
2. Pick out unique/interesting pieces
These ombre jeans add a little pizazz to the otherwise casual look. Paired with the cable knit sweater, it creates the illusion of a well thought out outfit.  A simple necklace, like the dainty one we've got on ($2.95 from Sportsgirl!), can also be a a simple and cute touch.
