108th Fashionable Fridays - No nonsense

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of No nonsense for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Before our family vacation, I received some tights and leggings from No nonsense - a black fishnet pair and then a corduroy grey leggings pair.  Shop now for yours. No nonsense tights and leggings

This was going to be a little tricky since I was going on vacation and would have to hope that these items would work with the clothes I packed instead of having my closet at my disposal. I made sure to have lots of basics for a classic look on hand to go with the No nonsense items.
For my first look, I wore the fishnets with my favorite dress for church. Sorry the pictures aren't great. All I had was a hotel room to take pictures in or negative temperatures outside. I'm not brave enough to do my posing in public places yet  unless I had a professional photographer with me =)





I think these black fishnets made the outfit more fun with some sass compared to typical tights. These were simple for me to wear and felt more comfortable than I thought they would be. I worried that these would have an itchy and scratchy feel, but were actual quite soft.

The leggings I received were grey corduroy and made me nervous to wear since I'm about modesty. Typically I'd pair leggings with a dress, but they didn't go with the white dress I wore above so I decided to be brave and wear it with a long sweater top.

My daughter sneaked into this picture. It would take too long to Photoshop her out =)



I typically don't like corduroys because I think they feel too 80s or give off a frumpy vibe. After seeing the pictures of me wearing them, I actually like the look. I think it helped, that I created a classic look with them instead of trying to go bold or wear a shorter shirt with them. They give a great texture. They're not much different than wearing skinny jeans. Though since they don't have bottom pockets like jeans, I think I'll stick to wearing long tops with it since they feel so tight especially around my bum. My husband liked to tease me about how tight they were in the back.

The great things about No nonsense leggings and tights are that they can be found in grocery, drug, and mass retail stores as well as being affordable. In fact, I even spotted some in a grocery store while on vacation in Utah.
Jill Martin, a fashion expert and award winning TV personality is partnering with No nonsense. She co-authored the best selling style guide, "I Have Nothing to Wear!" She defintely is a "No nonsense woman."
You can like No nonsense on Facebook and follow them on Twitter with me. I'm excited to find more No nonsense products especially these more colorful leggings from this video
I wish I was sent more colorful leggings to play with, but I guess it worked out well to get classic colors since I was on vacation and was limited to my access of clothing. These colorful leggings can definitely make an outfit more fun and show your personality through color by being bold. I've been a lot braver doing this so I can't wait to find some more colorful leggings and tights to try. They're much cheaper than the colored skinny jeans out there too and a great way to have fun with fashion. Check them out online too.

Love both looks! Very sassy.
The leggings look good on you.
I'm all about modesty too when it comes to things like that, and I think you pulled it off quite well.

I will keep my eyes out and have to try a pair or two!
