pool parties and whites {be unstoppable all month}

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

Pool party?  Period?  That can be scary business, but it’s summer and here in the desert it is HOTT.  Nothing is keeping me from being poolside, especially not some silly period I’ve been dealing with since I was 12.  Thanks to U by Kotex, I can keep my active summer lifestyle with no worries in sight.

For too long, wearing white was totally out of the question when it was that time of the month.  I’ve decided to take back my right to white, anywhere, anytime.  This past weekend I wore exclusively white, just to prove a point.  It was Memorial Day weekend… as you already know… so white seemed totally appropriate.  I felt confident with the help of U by Kotex products, and found myself more worried about spilling my cocktails on the white clothing than leaking through.

We had a formalish party to make an appearance at so I pulled out my white Alice + Olivia party dress and ran out the door. All that white and DRY CLEAN ONLY no less.  No worries though!

White dress, tiny clutch?  No problem with U by Kotex 3D Capture Core ultra thin pads which are so sleek they fit in the tiniest of clutches and wallets (and also pockets!).

The following day we were keeping it casual and I ran around in my favorite while linen pants.  Linen is a Godsend when you live in the desert, the lighter in color the better, and I could wear these everyday — even during period week.  Got it covered with U by Kotex.

Another day, another tiny clutch…

Inside that clutch I have all of this:

Of course it wouldn’t be a weekend here in Palm Springs without some pool time.  We practically live in the pool during the summer because it gets so darn hot!  I don’t care what time of the month it is, I’ll be there! This is me not caring…= )

There doesn’t get much skimpier and more nerve-wracking than the bikini during the period days.  Whether you are sitting on the sidelines working on your tan or walking in to cool off, U by Kotex has your back… figuratively.  Be unstoppable this summer!
