Hello, world! I’m still here. Week 2 of university has drawn to a close and all I’m feeling is tired. Can I get an ‘amen’? If there’s anything I’ve learnt in the whirlwind that is varsity, it’s balance.

“We came alive in this city. The people, the pace and the chaos.

Mr Price has always been one of those brands that is always on trend, and one trend that is still cool right now – thanks to veterans like A$ap Rocky (and maybe Kayla Itsines?) – is urban street style and sports luxe, and their new STREET range is definitely that international aesthetic on a budget (which is something that I, officially a student, can seriously appreciate).

When you’ve been on Tumblr for as long as I’ve been on Tumblr, you’ve seen lots of things – maybe more than you’ve wanted to by accident – but one thing you’d definitely have noticed are the fashion trends.

This post was originally posted on A Fashion Friend, and to be honest, their photo edits were cooler.

I think it’s no surprise that the summer of 2014 was kimono crazy – they’re sleek, easy to wear, take any outfit from an average person 6 to a hipster 8.5 and they make you feel completely covered even if you’re only wearing shorts and a crop top. They also serve the purpose of making house wear formal enough for leaving the house – one of the owners of Ruff Tung even told me she swears by them because she can wear them around the house yet still meet with clients, and, I mean, who am I to disagree? Comfort is cool, and so are kimonos.
