Lois Opoku striped dress OOTD lisforlois
About two weeks ago I had the pleasure of having my first BBQ of the season with Timberland in celebration of their new model the #TBLboatShoes, a loafer made for summer. The location was beautiful, the BBQ delicious, as we seemed to float on the Spree. The platform we were situated on did. Or so it felt at least. You could hear the gentle waves crash against the platform. It all looked beautiful and somewhat idyllic as if stolen from a still painting. It was almost perfect; had it not been for the chilling breeze.
But you know me. It takes little put a smile on my face and wrap me up in a sense of content. And so all it took was a face of a good friend I hadn't seen in a while. Beautiful jolly Nastya. Plus there was good food. Good drinks - double plus. Some more familiar faces - add another plus. A well decorated location that could have easily been a memory of something I might have seen on Pinterest while browsing inspiration or mistaken for an illusion, but the cold breeze I felt, made sure to remind me it was all quite real. A lovely PR Team - yet another plus.
Besides eating and chatting and discovering the latest Timberland addition, we got to choose and customize our own pair of Timberland Boat Shoes. Tucked in a little shack sat a lady patiently stitching on all our customizations chosen from various boxes of colorful patches in comic style.

I picked out a pair in baby blue and kept the customization to a minimum. Simply a little lightening in the right far corner of my right shoe. Would you laugh if I told you it nearly took me an hour to decide what to put on my shoes just to go with a little lightning tucked away in a corner? You would, probably shake your head smirking.
The shoes are made of the softest leather. And they feel comfortable.
Thank you so much Timberland for the lovely evening and BBQ session.
Thank you for the shoes!

camel on camel outfit lois opoku lisforloisWhat's good squad?
I just wanted to share my look from the Press Days last week with you guys. I went for total camel look, somewhat looking like I was trying to challenge how much camel one can wear before looking like one. I don't know why but I really wanted to combine these culottes with the top, both new in my closet which I snagged of the sale at Mango.
After having kept my Rihanna x Puma creepers safely tucked in the farthest corner of my closet (talk about "I need these shoes so desperately in my closet else my world will stop!" .. oh the power of a hype *smh*), I finally brought them out months after the release party and staying up to midnight to buy them. I've been wearing them a lot lately. I kind of remembered why I got them in the first place and why I fell for the hype.
They are pretty amazing, don't you think?
