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

“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 http://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?



  1. I still don't think I could do the white pants. Too many nerves.

  2. Love this post! By the way I watched the American Blogger film last night and you were fabulous! But your voice is 100% not what I expected! Way to go!

  3. Erin you look gorgeous in that RSF dress!!! You are hilarious too you made my day. I love reading your blog!

  4. I'm dying, awkward for you I can image, but love the blunt honestly lol! We all share the same probs ;)

  5. LOL! I can only imagine how awkward/hilarious it was writing this post! HAHA! Go you for wearing white.... whenever you want! I've worn white before though too - you're not alone!!

  6. hahaha not even your cats aunt..damn!
    Love those outfits girl!

  7. So brave! I still wear my dresses, because I love them, but I usually pick the darker colored ones.

  8. You are a brave, brave woman. I MAYBE wear a dark colored dress here on there but NEVER my white pants - one too many "accidents" in middle school will do that to ya. I hate looking like a homeless grandma for 3 days out of every month though, so maybe I will have to try and follow your example a bit more :)

  9. I've never read your blog before but the title of this post caught my attention - I agree, you are a very brave woman! I'm all about the sweats and dark colors during that time of the month. Lots of respect for you for wearing white and posting this!

  10. Bahahaha! This post! Wow, very brave for going this route. But you made your period personal - in the sense that you didn't keep a thing to yourself. I am sure Kotex appreciates! I LOVE this post! :)

    SO happy to be on your sidebar this month, Erin (:


  13. My new dress has this great slit so people can see those ever expensive shoes that we girls love so much. Beautiful quality material and the price is phenomenal. Thank you so much.

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
