No nonsense- Making Fashion Easy, Fun and affordable

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of No nonsense for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I would like to think that my fashion choices have evolved since I've grown older. I hit the big 3-0 last January (which means 31 is right around the corner! Eek!!) As a teen, I was just such a jeans and t-shirts kind of girl. That was until I discovered the wonderful world of dresses. My mom was such a tom boy the thought of dresses didn't occur to me for a while because I was just never around them. Once I bought one though, my senior year of high school, I fell in love and have had an obsession ever since.
Problem is, these days  I need something that is practical and easy, but I still want to look cute too! Having 3 kids 5 and under to chase around does not leave me much time for shopping or putting outfits together. No nonsense tights and leggings make it easy for me to add a great finishing touch to my favorite dresses. Whether I am wearing something black or neutral and want a pop of color on my legs, or I want textured tights to add another dimension to my look, No nonsense has me covered. They even have tights that help flatten my tummy and help me feel great in my own skin (not easy to a short woman who's torso was ravaged by carrying twins that weighed 6lbs 4oz and 6lbs 10oz, respectively.)
I was so excited to get to try out No nonsense tights! I was sent two pair. The first pair was a black pair of footless cotton tights meant for shaping and hiding. The Great Shapes Cotton Shaping Leggings are a great place to start with an outfit and work around it. Since I received leggings in black, I wanted the dress I wore to have a pattern, so I borrowed a fun floral dress from my little sister (it pay to have a little sister in college!) I felt like my body looked great thanks to these leggings. I even felt skinny for the first time since I had my boys (in 2009!!) You could do so much with these tights. They would also look great with a tunic or a long chunky sweater or with a skirt and cardigan. I love having such a versatile piece in my wardrobe that not only makes me feel good about how I look, but is easy on the pocket book.
The second pair of tights I received for review were my favorite! I normally don't like tights with feet, but these patterned tights are just so adorable and in one of my favorite colors- grey. I would have liked to pair them with a purple dress, but since I didn't have one, I paired them with my second favorite complimentary color to grey- dark blue. I thought the patterned tights looked super cute. The pattern is enough to wear them with a solid dress and they would still help the outfit pop. I wore them with a lace dress and I thought the contrasting fabrics worked nicely together.
I am in love with the grey patterned tights! So cute and feminine!
