no nonsense

Hey Lovelies!

I had the awesome opportunity to try out some No nonsense tights and leggings and style them. Obviously I jumped at the chance because No nonsense is a staple in women's tights and have been around since before I can even remember! 

I got sent a pair of jean leggings and a pair of purple patterned tights. Right off the bat I was really excited about the jeggings because while I have a few pairs of skinny jeans or jeans that border on leggings I don't have any leggings that are made to look like jeans (and yes there is a difference). I was however a little hesitant about the tights because I typically stick with traditional black tights and rarely stray too far from that, though I was glad they weren't bright orange or something like that because that would have been so far from me. 

I styled the jeggings right off the bat and wanted to show you lovelies how these are great because they can be styled up or down. This specific pair doesn't have pockets which to me personally means they need to be worn with a longer top to cover the toosh (unless of course you have one of those perfect behinds). So to style it up I did this longer red blouse and heeled black booties. It felt very comfy and low maintenance but looked super chic (especially paired with my signature gold jewelry). 

The second look I styled was a more casual one with this longer Alpine sweater from Mark (WELCOME for free shipping) and classic black flats. This was the ultimate comfort outfit. I literally felt like I was in my pj's but it looked pulled together. These jeggings are so comfy but still have some structure, which is hard to come by.

Even though I was hesitant at first about the tights, once I got them on I decided immediately I loved them. They were thicker than most regular tights which is awesome for me since I am amazing tight ruin-er (seriously I go through tights like you wouldn't believe). I paired them with my go-to high wasted black pencil skirt, and then this jewel toned blue blouse. I loved the look of the tights and the blouse together because they both had this pretty jewel toned color and they really brought each other out. Of course I paired it all with my new favorite Aldo booties and my signature gold jewelry. It felt very "holiday" to me, and I think I should definitely re-wear this look to a holiday party. 

I really loved working with No nonsense because as I mentioned before they are a staple in women's leg wear. They are a well known, high quality brand, that are really affordable. What's even nicer is that you can find them at local food and drug stores as well as mass retail stores. I love that because sometimes (lets be honest, most times) I am running behind and need to grab a pair of tights or leggings on the fly.
