When I first realized that I was offered this opportunity I panicked a little bit. I am so not a fashionista. I spend about 2 minutes picking out my clothes in the morning. I do not spend tons of time or money buying them either. I thought about asking one of my sisters to guest post for me, they are both more into fashion than I am, but I really wanted to do this myself. As I looked into what I needed to do I found that I could do it. I do enjoy clothes and definitely have ones I prefer so I can talk to you about what I like, I don't have to be a fashionista to do that.
So what is it that I like? What is my style, my fashion? Well the first and most important thing is that it must be comfortable. I spend a lot of time in clothes, if i am going to wear them they are going to be comfortable. This has gotten even more important in the last couple years, how can I concentrate on being a good mom if I am in constant pain or discomfort? The second is that they must be decent. I am getting up and down, bending, twisting, running, on a daily basis, if I can't do all that without flashing everyone around me then I am not wearing the right clothes. Also if I am not capable of doing all that in the clothes I am wearing then I am not wearing the right clothes. Third it cannot take me forever to get into or out of the clothes. I do not have time to waste on making sure my outfit is perfect, I have way better things to do with my time. So I like things I can just throw on easily.
So with all that said No nonsense tights and leggings would definitely be a good addition to my wardrobe. They fit all the criteria: they are comfortable (well I assume they are, they look super comfy), they are decent (and they would help less decent outfits become more decent), and I don't think they would take too long to put on. And they are cute! I think they would make a great addition to quite a few of my outfits. They are also affordable.
I put together an outfit using No nonsense leggings to show you how I would use them. I chose the black cotton leggings because cotton is comfy and black goes with everything. I would throw on a long shirt/short dress over it. I would love to have a wide belt like that to pair with that kind of outfit. Honestly the rest of the collection I probably would not wear simply because I don't want to take the time to put on all of that but it was fun to pick it out and pretend :). Plus I had to have it in there for all you fashionistas who will be judging my collection :).
No nonsense also partnered with Jill Martin, a fashion expert, tv personality, and co author of "I Have Nothing to Wear" to create and promote their new lines. They have created some videos to show how their leggings can be useful for everyone. Check this one out!
