“I love jumpsuits because they’re great for my body shape and I always feel comfortable wearing them. Apart from that, I tend to like weird clothes; so sometimes I look pretty gothic!”

“Ce que j’adore le plus ce sont les combinaisons. Je me sens toujours à l’aise et je trouve qu’elles me vont bien par rapport à ma morphologie. A part ça, j’ai tendance à aimer les vêtements décalés; je fais limite gothique parfois!”

Meet Maya Amoah: Traveler & Creator of Nebula Artwear

Nebula
People say that you can’t make real friends online, let alone on social media. I normally agree 100% because we all know how weird people can be (like that random person that keeps adding you from that random country you never heard of). Even though parents always say “don’t talk to strangers”, I did and it was awesome.

Maya Amoah, creator of Nebula Artwear, blogger and world traveler contacted me via Instagram last week by searching #lyon. She asked me if I was interested in doing a collaboration with her, I agreed, and I’m so happy that I did!

This is me wearing some of Maya’s designs:

Nebula Artwear is a clothing line infusing street wear with an artistic edge. Maya explained to me that she loves anything to do with stars, the moon and the sky and can stare at it for hours. She’s been traveling for 4 months now and has visited 16 countries so far which is insane for a nineteen year old! She started in the UK and then made her way around Europe: Scotland, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece, Italy, France and Spain. In Maya’s words, “she somehow magically finds positive energy wherever she goes” and has even made new friends for life. Everything has been very spontaneous because the only thing she plans is which city she goes to next and lives on a very cheap budget to help her money last longer.

“These are experiences that can’t be taught in the lecture halls. I have learned the value of perspective from the many people I have met,” Maya explained to me. “Culture is so important. Tomorrow is never so promised so I decided to continue to embrace the moment I’m in and follow my ambitions. Right now they include working on my clothing line, writing for my blog and magazines as well as finding a job on the side to make more money for travel. And to laugh more. And to learn a new language. And to just continue to live. I have so many ideas inside of me and I’m really excited for what magic life brings next. The universe has good things in store and I feel very blessed of what it has brought thus far.”

Maya then proceeded to tell me that these pants are currently her favorite piece in her wardrobe. “I bought them in Thessaloniki, Greece and it was love at first sight. The myriad of prints sewn together is beautiful and a perfect center piece when wearing a neutral colored shirt or tank top,” Maya told me.

“Because I’ve been backpacking, I’ve been going through a bohemian phase which is just what happens when your wardrobe is your backpack and you have to get crafty! I found the crochet shirt I’m wearing in the picture at a thrift store, like most of my clothes. I’ve only recently discovered how good white looks on dark skin. Also, it’s the perfect top for these wild pants. The denim jacket was my mom’s, but I took it from her closet a while ago. It’s just a classic, no other words needed.”

Isn’t she just adorable?! Maya has such a bubbly personality and so much talent (and insane ambition for traveling alone at 19!) so I’ve already decided we’re buds for life.

WIWTW: Metallic & Blue

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

This week, I wanted to wear something bright and blue because summer is almost over (I’m still trying to cope with the fact that I start classes in 3 weeks). This summer, I’ve seen a lot of electric blues and metallics and because I love vibrant colors, it was the perfect combo for an evening outing.

Lipstick: Lasting Finish Matte #112 by Kate Moss

After searching for it all summer, I finally found my turquoise summer dress that I bought from Pimkie. It’s in neoprene, so the fabric is very light and comfortable (very common in swimsuits, jackets and sweaters this year). Because my neoprene dress is simple on its own, I accessorized it with metallic blue sunglasses from Asos and a metallic/felt/faux leather clutch from H&M. To finish off the look, I opted for my comfy white sneakers that I bought from Pull & Bear in Cannes.

To get my look, check these out:

Sunglasses: $15.60 or €13.83 at Asos
Dress: $11.67 at Sheinside
Clutch: $34.95 at SimplyBe
Sneakers: $40.74 or £25.99 at Pull & Bear

“For a long time I’ve noticed a lot of girls wearing “Peter Pan” collars and have always loved it. That’s why I started an online store so I can sell my creations and inspire people. For my own outfits, I find inspiration through African prints because in Africa, people are happy and usually wear bright colors.”

“Depuis longtemps, je vois beaucoup de filles porter des cols “Claudine”, et j’ai toujours adoré ça. Du coup, j’ai crée une boutique en ligne pour vendre mes créations et inspirer les gens. Personnellement, je m’inspire beaucoup des tissus africains car en Afrique, ils sont joyeux et portent souvent des couleurs vives.”

WIWTW: French Riviera, Italy & Monaco

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

This week, I had the amazing opportunity to spend a week in French Riviera with Sidney. We had the most amazing time visiting, shopping, swimming, tanning, boat riding and eating! Throughout the vacation it was about 36°C (96°F) so I got to wear a lot of cute summer outfits.

Let me just show you where we were, so you can have a better understanding of life.

I decided to wear this beautiful gingham romper that I got from Bershka because I love the pattern and it was really comfortable. Grown-up gingham has been really in for SS15 and rompers are the perfect alternatives for tacky overalls (guys stop trying to make it happen, it unfortunately happened in the 90’s but it has officially become a plumber’s uniform). I paired the romper with my comfy black slip-ons from Asos and a faux gold pendant from H&M. Simple as that!

To get my look, check these out:

Romper: $28.14 or £19.99 at Bershka
Slip-ons: $55.00 at Asos
Necklace: $4.99 at H&M

“I get a lot of my inspiration from what I see in the streets as well as my grandfather’s photo albums (he was a grand dandy in his time). I’d say my style is Urban chic. A touch of detail from the 80’s with a sexy hint of rock n’ roll and some bling.”

“Je m’inspire beaucoup de ce qu’il m’est donné de voir dans la rue mais également d’albums photos de mon grand-père (grand dandy de son époque). Je définirais mon style comme Urban chic. Une touche décalée de fraîcheur 80’s avec un côté rock assez sexy, et une pointe de bling bling.”

“I like to dress simply but my sneakers always steal the show. I’m obsessed with sneakers, I have about twenty pairs of Nikes, Jordans, etc.”

“J’ai un style plutôt simple mais ce sont mes baskets qui font toujours la différence dans mes tenues. Je suis un sneaker addict, j’ai une vingtaine de Nike, Jordan, etc.”
