White Parties, Undies and Aunt Flo

By  | 

It's almost officially summer. Shoot, depending on where you live, you may already be kickin' it in 90 degree temps. Summer is my absolute favorite season; there are only two things I don't like about this glorious season: the bugs and the obligatory white parties. I'm sure I don't have to explain my aversion to creepy crawlies, so let's talk about these white parties.

Why? Just why must we go through this? EVERY. YEAR. Ugh. Memorial Day, Independence Day, Uncle Ray-Ray's 50th birthday… As if it's not already hard enough to decide on a party outfit, now you gotta add rules? Here's how it goes: the men don their best white, off white, eggshell or florescent beige linen pants, white tank tops that are supposed to be underwear and hideous sandals and the women suit up in all manner of white dresses. This terrifies me y'all. I am the type of person to whom random stains are attracted, so the thought of wearing all white makes me cringe. Plus, I refuse to wear white shoes. Ever.

Anyway ladies, if you have plans to bravely attend one of these monochrome soirées this summer, do yourself a favor: Save your drawers (and your dress).

I can't think of anything more mortifying than getting an unexpected visit from aunt Flo and being caught without protection. While wearing white. Chile… I'm stressed just thinking about it. Luckily, the folks over at U by Kotex have got you covered (literally and figuratively). They are making it easy to be an #UnderWarrior.

"U by Kotex Ultra Thin Pads have 3D Capture Core, a one-of-a-kind center that locks away wetness to help stop leaks." Translation: You can rock your most form fitting white dress without fear of diaper booty or leaks.

  1. This post made me chuckle a few times. I think I've actually declined a white party or two before if it occurred during that time of the month. But I went to one on a cruise last year and we had a ball. It was actually nice seeing everyone in their white attire 😉

  2. I love a white party, shoes and all!! I just never understand why people want to serve bbq chicken at these functions; like the sauce won’t find its way onto my white pants.

  3. LOL! You had me chuckling but girl no one likes diaper booty. I not really a fan of all white either. I acutally have an event at the end of the month that's all white. Thankfully it'll be right before Aunt Flo or else I would be MIA.

    Hahaha! I love a good white event and I've been lucky to never have to deal with Aunt Flo. I was lucky enough to not deal with her for over a year with pregnancy and breastfeeding so I am just starting to get back in the flow of things – pun intended.

  5. LOL!   My 1st white party of the year is this week!
