Since I am a mommy who sometimes doesn’t leave the house for an entire week during the winter, fashion and style aren’t always at the top of my list of priorities.
If I were to think about it, I have never really been that into the latest styles. It probably stems from the fact that there weren’t always cute clothes for 6’1″ girls when I was growing up.
I have been trying to do a better job of getting dressed for success each day, but I am no fashionista. I enjoy getting dressed up to go to church but other than that you mostly can find me in jeans and a decent shirt.
Here’s a little tidbit about me that you probably didn’t know. I have been wearing support hose for the past 6 years. Every. Single. Day. This is due to the fact that I have varicose veins that progressively got worse with each preganancy.
Anyway, I usually only wear plain colored hose. However, I have been intrigued by the No nonsense tights and leggings. It might be fun to take a break from my normal hose, even if it is only for a few hours for church. I know my daughter would love them, too.
I don’t know if you have seen any of the fashion collages that seem to be everywhere on Pinterest, but I thought it would be fun to come up with a couple of outfits that I might enjoy wearing that included No nonsense tights and leggings.
I headed over to Polyvore and created two collages of clothes I could see myself, or my daughter, wearing and I thought you might like to see them, too.
The first outfit includes a pair of No nonsense tights in turquoise. I decided to pair them with a brown sweater dress and boots as well as some turquoise accessories.
The second outfit I created included a pair of brown No nonsense leggings along with a pink sweater dress and some pink and brown accessories.
Apparently I have a thing for sweater dresses even though I don’t own a single one.
It was fun to create the outfits and was a much better experience for me than trying on clothes at a store. Please, tell me I’m not the only one who doesn’t like shopping for clothes.
The great thing about building an outfit around No nonsense tights and leggings is that they are affordable and can be found at many local food and drug stores.
No nonsense is partnering with Jill Martin who, unlike myself, actually knows something about fashion and what the latest trends are. Here’s a video where she talks about No nonsense tights and leggings being “lipstick for the legs”.
What color of tights or leggings would you add to your wardrobe for a pop of color?
