Spicing Up My Wardrobe on a Budget #sponsored

This post brought to you by No nonsense. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's the beginning of the new year and like many of you, I have a few resolutions on my list.  

  • Lose weight
  • Stick to my budget
  • Update my professional appearance
  • and a few others…

The problem with these resolutions is that the sneaky resolution in the middle makes some of the other resolutions a bit challenging.  And, since I WILL lose weight this year (and not find it again) I will be needing to replace my wardrobe.  

And yet, funds are tight.  So… Is it possible to meet all of my criteria for this new look I'm wanting?  Here they are:

  • Professional
  • Affordable
  • Perhaps a bit forgiving for weight fluctuation
  • And a little bit of fun thrown in there (newly single after all!)

So, when No nonsense tights and leggings asked me to pull together an outfit including their leggings, I was excited to see what I could do!   No nonsense leggings are affordable, easy to find almost anywhere – food and drug stores, large retail etc., AND are stretchy so forgiving of my upcoming weight loss!  PERFECT!

Here's the first outfit I created.  What do you think?

Do you think it meets my professional and yet a little fun criteria?  

The No nonsense leggings definitely fit the affordable and forgiving pieces and hopefully I can find similar pieces for the skirt and blouse to keep it in my budget ( I already have boots and jewelry).  

In related news:

No nonsense is remaking itself and coming out with trendy new styles of tights and leggings that I'm looking forward to adding to my wardrobe for a little pop and to freshen things up a bit.  Plus Jill Martin, co-author of "I have nothing to wear!" and Correspondent for Access Hollywood, just signed on to be the No nonsense brand ambassador.  Part of her new role will include showing women how to create great looks using No nonsense tights and leggings.  She'll be providing fashion advice on twitter ( @benononsense ) and you can win a trip to NY for a shopping spree with Jill via No nonsense on Facebook!!  

Check out the video…

Are you a leggings or tights fan?  Do you have a go-to look that you think I should try out in my quest to be more professional and fun this year?  Please share!!

    I am with that outfit all the way until the boots. they seem a too casual for the rest of the outfit. But i love the grey and purple! I’ve never really done leggings and tights past my teens, but I too am looking at a more professional and diversified wardrobe this year so I will def. keep these in mind!

      Thanks Jessica! Would you want a higher or more stiletto heel? I love the boots with a skirt, so wouldn’t want to switch out the boots – of course you could wear normal pumps… I was thinking the boots were sexy, but now you have me thinking
