Updating my “Mom Uniform”…

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of No nonsense for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.I don’t know about you, but I pretty much live in jeans, tank tops and flip flops.  (Oh, and a pony tail or a Mom Bun!)  Sexy!  (Not.)   It’s not that I don’t care about fashion (I do!) but things get busy, I get involved in projects or running errands, and comfort and ease become the deciding factor when I get dressed in the morning…  So when I got the opportunity to try No nonsense tights and leggings I was totally up for it.

I was sent a pair of leggings and a pair of patterned tights to try out.


I grabbed my favorite boots and an ombre sweater dress that is a bit on the short side, and…
Easy!  An outfit that was as quick and easy as jeans and a t-shirt, but looks polished and put together.  And it’s just as comfortable.

I gave the leggings a try first.  They were a nice, tight knit cotton-spandex-poly blend.  They are very soft and have a wide waist band, so they don’t roll down.  (One of my biggest leggings/tights pet peeves.)  These are quite structured, so there isn’t a whole lot of “give” in them, but they are still stretchy and comfortable.  And they have a control top that actually, well, controls areas where you might need a little bit of help…

As you might be able to tell, I like my blacks and grays… I am trying very hard to be able to incorporate more color into my wardrobe, but I just seem to gravitate towards these neutrals.  No nonsense might be able to help me out here, too.

Do you recognize Jill Martin in that video?  She’s a fashion expert and an Emmy-Award winning TV  personality and a New York Times best-selling author.  She’s partnered with No nonsense as their brand ambassador.
I love that these tights are available in grocery stores as well as in stores like Target.  And they’re so affordable!  (Like less than $10 affordable!)

They also sent me some patterned tights to try out.


While these patterned tights were a tad bit outside of my comfort zone, they were fun to play with.  Who knows… maybe I’ll get brave and try a few more.

I am definitely going to be picking up a few more pairs of those leggings and they will be a great change from my regular Mom Uniform.

You look hot! Do you think they make these in painter ready type styles? I have two mom uniforms. The workout uniform which I put on every morning even I don't work out, at least I can feel like I tried! Then I have the mid day paint clothes (which don't count as clothes), followed by the standard jeans, flats and a t-shirt. I always admire those moms that stay home, but have "outfits" on every day, but to me, that is just too much trouble. I like to be comfortable. Maybe that is why the workout uniform sometimes overtakes the afternoon ensemble.
