A Fashion Post Brought To You By My Period. Yes, You Read That Correctly…

April 29, 2014

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and U by Kotex but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #UbyKotex https://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

It’s true, I was. And I know what you are thinking “but white! and tight clothing! and oh my gosh that dress could show your tampon string!” Maybe I’m the only one who thinks about the whole tampon string thing, but still, I get it. Typically when one thinks about outfits that are worn during the first few days of your period you think of something along the lines of dark baggy sweatpants. Except guess what–nobody thinks dark baggy sweatpants are sexy. Not even your cat’s aunt.

I guess what I’ve decided is that as long as I know I’ve got everything covered “down there” I’m going to go about my business as normal which means tight // white // short // dresses and all. Have no fear, coverage is here. Underneath all of my fancy little risky outfits below, I am adorning a sleek U by Kotex tampon [because I knew you were wondering what made me so brave]. Super if you absolutely must know. And now, allow me to present to you my period induced outfits [just as a ps. my husband is absolutely cringing through this entire post I’m sure]…

First up we have this fabulous maxi dress I found recently at Flourish Boutique. I think I am supposed to stop buying maxi dresses but in the words of Miley, can’t stop won’t stop. Typically light colored anything that is suctioned to your body is a no-no during aunt flow’s arrival but guess what, aunt flow has no say anymore. BAM.
Next up we have this fun bright tribal tank from miss chic along with [gaaaasssssssp] white pants. The myth has now been dispelled–white pants can be worn at any and all times that you want to wear them. No matter the season (weather or hormonal). White pant lovers unite. 

And last but not least, this feisty little Needle and Thread number from Rent Some Fashion. Have you heard of Rent Some Fashion yet? You are able to rent designer dresses, shoes, jewelry, and accessories for a fraction [of a fraction] of the price. This dress–$39. It’s the most genius way to dress for any special occasion without spending insane amounts of money. Just thought you should know.

And there we have it, three outfits I would have sworn I could never wear on my period but thanks to U by Kotex I now can. As a heads up, right now at Walmart [I can’t quit their low prices] if you purchase either the sleek U by Kotex tampons or the CleanWear U by Kotex pads you will receive a 3 pack of elastic hairbands for free while supplies last. The hairbands are directly on the box as you can see below.

And that concludes the most awkward fashion post ever.

What’s your favorite period look?

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
