Finding My Confidence In White

Disclosure: 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 #UbKKmart  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Pregnancy changes everything!  Your priorities change, your interests change, and your body changes both inside and out.  I have my two beautiful yet ornery children to thank for my awful monthly visitor.  Like I said, pregnancy changes your body both INSIDE and OUT!  Sure my pants do not fit the same; could be from the cookies I find myself eating after dinner though. However, my period has changed since having children and for awhile it really controlled what I did and what I wore during those 10 days (YES TEN! Lucky me!).

I haven't really talked about this experience when it comes to my postpartum - 18 months later but it is time. Growing up I had really bad periods, super heavy, long and horrible cramps.  I remember my gynecologist telling me that once I had a child my "insides" would settle down.  It was one of the things I was actually looking forward too!!  Well...she was wrong!  SO WRONG!  Since having children my periods have become a very challenging time of the month.  Before I started using U by Kotex products I was always worried about having leaks while in public.  I would plan my outfits by the time of the month and would even find ways to get out of working out or swimming!

Thankfully U by Kotex has all kinds of products that have really helped me deal with the changes in my body since having children.  First, check out the great packaging!  I tell you what...when I am in my 10 days of "Bleeding Out" (yes, that is what I tell my husband every month) these bright and colorful packaging kind of brighten up my day.  Second, the 3D Capture Core in the U by Kotex pads come in all of the sizes.  Personally when I want to feel safe and protected while enjoying my pretty spring and summer sundresses I use the Overnight size.  However, on the lighter days I simply grab a smaller version of the 3D Capture Core.

Summer has finally decided to stick around which means I am breaking out the sundresses for work!  I love this time of the year.  No more dress pants!  WOOHOO!!  Last summer I was never confident enough to wear my pretty dresses during that time of the month but this summer I have no worries.  I have come to the conclusion that I will just have to deal with this "aftershock" of pregnancy and it is what it is.

To make this White statement all summer long find a great white dress that is can be dressed up or down.  I personally love this lace over lay white dress because I know that with some jewelry and dressier sandals I can make this dress perfect for a date night or even a cocktail party but I can also throw it on with some flip flops and head to the park!  It is so comfortable and the details are perfect!  Even if I find myself on my period when I need or want to wear this dress I just add my U by Kotex to my wardrobe necessities!  Simple fix!

  2. I find I gravitate toward white clothing recently, too. I bought a nice white shirt, off-white shorts, and white/beige shoes recently.
