What's my style?
I honestly have no idea. I prefer things that don't match, like to mix patterns, love to wear black but also have a love affair with color. I like to be comfortable and yet I am not afraid to wear 4 inch heels (unless I am carrying the baby). I own boots and slippers and boat shoes. I can always throw on big bold jewelry or just a classic string of pearls.
I used to be annoyed that I couldn't nail down my style but I have given up on that.
The only thing I can tell you about my style is that I like what I like.
I recently got No nonsense classic black leggings and black patterned tights. They both fall into my "I like what I like" style. Loved them, in fact!
That's right, No nonsense tights and leggings.
The leggings are perfect for my situation right now–staying at home with a newborn baby but still needing to take kids to school and make the occasional grocery stop. The leggings aren't too tight and are super comfy.
They are comfortable enough to lounge around and stare at my new baby in but they can be dressed up with a cardigan and a pair of boots in a flash. They are thick enough to be warm and modest.
Leggings and mothering–great combo.
Leggings at New Years.
Leggings and a little bling.
Leggings on my fancy tenth anniversary date.
I wore the patterned tights during the holidays which meant I was doing a lot of *ahem* holiday eating and the control top was more than welcome but again not too tight. Here's the outfit I wore to church right before New Years:
Thanks to my stylish sister-in-law for letting me borrow those killer shoes!
As my sisters-in-law and I discussed, the tights are patterned enough to be fun but not too crazy where you feel like you couldn't wear them with everything. Not that I am too worried about that–as you can see I wore them with a houndstooth sweater.
Where can I find No nonsense tights and leggings?
They are available at food and drug stores as well as all those big retail stores. (Places you already go.) And you will love how affordable they are!

I just love all those funky colored tights she shows off in the video. The mustard is kind of to die for!
I kind of feel like I need to own them all–especially the leggings! After all, I am into style made easy.
