Shopping In Our Closet With No nonsense

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

If you love shopping in your closet like we do, you’re constantly looking for ways to update your existing inventory and mixing and matching old items to create new outfits. But there’s only so much you can do with your separates, and dresses are an even bigger challenge. We’re big fans of leggings and tights because they are an affordable way to transform any outfit that needs an update. So when we were asked us to put together a look with No nonsense’s new leggings we headed to our closet for a little shopping trip.

The yellow J. Crew boucle jacket hiding in the back of our closet was the perfect candidate for this challenge. It’s a classic silhouette and a wardrobe staple, but it never seems to come off its padded hanger. While there are people in this world who would say I could use a little more of these looks in my rotation (Mom, I’m talking to you), It’s just so conservative. But with our new denim leggings and a few accessories, Gwyneth and I put together an outfit with just enough of a twist that it got a day out on the town.

  1. Well Meredith – this made my morning! The first outfit is great – I think the jacket definitely deserves to be put in rotation. In fact, I think I have the same jacket in blue and have been inspired to search/shop my closet. Now, on to the second outfit….all was well as I gradually scrolled down until I got to your…… legs… maybe the color needs adjusting on my iPad….but for No Nonsense to call that color pear is just WICKED. Gywneth apparently knows this as well, as she has managed to hide her face in every shot, or is on the lookout for flying monkeys.

    Love you guys – have a wonderful Christmas!

      Hi JTC! This comment has us ROLLING in laughter! Glad you liked the first outfit and that it inspired you to shop your closet! There’s nothing more gratifying than finding an oldie but goodie! And YES, those tights in the second look are pretty green! When they turned up, we knew we had quite the challenge ahead of us! Seeing as Gwyneth looks A LOT like Toto, I think your hunch is spot on! HA!

    The jacket style is classic, but the color isn’t! Love that shade with navy, the look is fabulous!
    How thick is the legging fabric? Thin fabric in that area is just… not good!

    I didn’t know NN made tights, I’ll have to look out for some other colors.

    • Meredith & Gwyneth says:

      Hi Matilda! The leggings are really thick! ie: No fear of them being the least bit see through! Definitely hear what you are saying about thin fabric – we’ve seen too many cases of people unaware of thin leggings and bending over. Definitely NOT GOOD! But we did a little test before wearing them out and (Phew) they passed!
