LADE TAKES LAGOS: CHRISTMAS STYLE X THONIA

Hello Everyone!!!

nigerian blogger toluwalade

It’s been a minute since our anniversary et giveaway. The winners were announced on our instagram page and have already started claiming their prices. Thanks to everyone who supported and participated.

If you’re subscribed to my newsletter or follow me on IG or Twitter, you would have seen that i am now in Lagos!!! The excitement was/is real. I had been waiting the whole year lol and now its finally here. I got in last week just in time for Christmas and i didn’t waste any time in linking up with my blogger bae Thonia of Thoniabankz . We shot a Christmas look and hung out the rest of the day.

SOCIAL MEDIA VS REALITY

It was my first time meeting Thonia and her character definitely matched her online persona- Fun, Playful and really just a chilled person. We started chatting like we were long lost friends and spent the rest of the day laughing just a little too much. We ate so much that day but what do you expect? Foodie nation stand up haha. It was an amazing day overall and i’m definitely looking forward to hanging out with her more before i leave.

CHRISTMAS STYLE LOOK

We decided on shooting something suitable for the Christmas season and once she told me she was wearing red i knew it was only perfect to pair it up with my white dress (okay that’s probably after hours of chatting with each other on various options) but yeah the white dress won and we slayed real quick. After the hassle of searching for a location, we decided my garage gate was gonna be it (even though my dad wasn’t thinking so)

Can we just take a moment and appreciate my younger sister who took these pictures for us?? How amazing are they! And isn’t the gate (and the tree branch that keeps popping up) just the perfect background after all?!

As you should have seen from the post title, this is the first of my LADE TAKES LAGOS SERIES.

It’ll be covering all the collaborations i have with other blogger friends and places i visit.

PS- If you’re in Lagos and would like to collaborate or just meet-up let me know!! My email is contact@toyinwithfshion.com . If you also have any suggestions on places to check out please let me know? I’m out to enjoy this Lagos trip to the fullest!!!

 

What do you guys think of our outfit?? Would you wear something like this?

Let me know in the comment box below 🙂

Be sure to check out Thonia’s blog also. She has amazing stuff there and of course to see what she says about our meetup! Does my online persona fit my real life self? I wonder too. Plus, there are extra pictures for your viewing pleasure haha

Happy Holidays to Everyone and I hope you enjoy the rest of 2016!!
