BY MALI

Lois Opoku waterfall skirt streetstyle lisforlois
I shot some really awesome pictures with my friend Mali a little while back. I've shot a couple of outfit pictures in this location, yet I never realized how stunning this place could look in pictures.
It's all about perspectives.
Mali and me make a great team. Whoever is behind or in front of the camera, it feels comfortable, natural. And the results never fail to amaze me. Sometimes I can't stop taking pictures of her and I feel like I've got it, but she disagrees. I know it's not me, or the pictures. It's something personal. I really enjoy taking pictures of her. She's naturally beautiful and her style is amazing. Two things that make it impossible for me to stop pressing the shutter release.
She's perfect to practice photography skills on (of which I have none), and developing the eye, which seem like a pair of sunglasses I put on whenever I'm with her, shooting her.

I'm loving the pictures I've shot with her. Of course it would only be cruel not to share. Hope you enjoy jet another set by wonderful Mali.

I'm off to hang out with the Keds Team. See you on Insta!
@LisforLois if you have forgotten ;)

SEPTEMBER SUMMER

Palazzo pants kitty flats Streetstyle Lois Opoku
Been enjoying the last couple of days as summer decided to finally make an appearance. It's hard to believe it's October already and I'm turning 21 in 4 days. This year has passed by so quickly. It feels like my last birthday was just a couple of weeks back, but a complete year has passed. A complete year.
University is starting again in a week plus minus a couple of days, but it'd be like it's starting in a few hours given how I perceive time these days. Is it just me or is it like everything is sped up? Life is sped up? It's like life is stuck on rush hour. Like your thumb is stuck on the 4x fast-forward button on the remote control and there is no way to release it.
Time is not what time used to feel like.
This year I'm just gonna go through with uni, go to all classes, write all exams. Get it over with. Before I know it I'll have my bachelor degree in Business IT. It will feel like a few weeks. Life and time is passing me by and I have a hard time making the best out of it. Living in the now. People alway say "Live in the present! Enjoy every Moment"
How do they do it when you've lost complete feel for the measure of time. I for one feel in complete dissolution with time.

L IS FOR LOIS X MEXX

I've teamed up with Mexx to celebrate the opening of their brand new store in the new Mall of Berlin at Leipziger Platz. Having worked the best job evaaa at LP12 last weekend, I am already a huge fan of the new Mall. It's so big, it's easy to get lost in it for some hours of shopping. There is no store you won't find there.
As for Mexx, it's situated not far from the entrance, perfect. I had a look at their latest collection with their lovely team during the opening. I instantly fell in love with this blouse. Classic, white, and a very timeless cut - elegant yet super cute thanks to the dotted holes as the perfect little detail. It's the beginning of fall and fall beginning always makes me feel like bringing out my all leather pants. In a classic black and white look I combined my new Mexx blouse.

HIDDEN FOUNTAINS

Lois Opoku Summer Outfit Berlin lisforlois
Summer is definitely coming to an end in Berlin, although we enjoy the occasional hot days every now and then which were truly missed during the actual summer months and honestly it feels like August again. Something like September Summer?
I'm loving the backdrop of today's pictures. This huge ass fountain completely out of place. I have walked passed it. Several times. Often actually.
Anytime I'm on my way to my best Friends house after gym.

Sometimes you walk through the world, blind, completely shutting out your surroundings, and then you open your eyes and discover treasures. Treasures that have been there all along. Treasures you've seen ever so often before, but never took a minute to appreciate. And sometimes you happen to have you're camera along with you and you can capture those places, that moment.
It looks like I'm in Bali right? Oh Bali, I so desperately want to discover you.
This is my little Bali getaway right here in Berlin.
This is as close as I'll get to Bali this year.
I'm coming for you next year, Bali.
I've started saving.

GREEN SHAPES AND REFLECTIONS

Lois Opoku green dress Michael Kors bag lisforlois
These shots were taken right after my morning at the Uniqlo store for the Ines de La Fressange collections launch and my awesome afternoon with Levis. I'm totally loving the reflections in the huge windows, perfectly matching to one of my favorite dresses. This dress is a piece from the last ASOS Africa collection. I got it at the ASOS sample sale where every dress cost 5€! (So lucky I grabbed it before Hadnet Tesfai (truly beautiful German TV personality), because she was really digging that dress and couldn't stop complementing me on my find.) Btw I never really revealed what I end up buying at that Sample Sale, but this is one of those dresses. Trust me, Sample Sales are THE B.E.S.T.
