After just getting back from a few day long conference, I’m definitely feeling worn down. I’m lucky because my office is casual attire every day. So when I whipped out my business dresses and slacks, I couldn’t feel more frumpy. Especially after the winter (and putting on a few winter pounds) I found myself fidgeting in my work dresses, wanting to unbutton my slacks, and slumping down in the chair to feel more comfortable. Nothing makes a girl feel less confident than being in clothes that used to fit and are now a bit too snug.
Now that I’m home, I definitely need to boost up my confidence now that the bloating from all the Chicago Deep Dish has mostly gone away. Many women like to wear their favorite, sexy pumps to make them feel more confident. Other women love to buy some new make-up and try a new look. Since I’m not very make-up savvy and refuse to wear heels in downtown D.C., I like to style out with a new purse.

In the Summer months, I like to go with a light colored purse. My white and tan bag is my absolute favorite. It is versatile with a short straps and a crossbody strap. I’m a huge fan of bags with lots of inside pockets which is awesome for fitting all of what you need in your purse.
Whenever I switch my purses, I start first making sure to protect my new bag. Always use a protectant spray before you switch over. Usually these sprays take about 12 hours to set before you should be using them. You definitely don’t want any ugly denim stains on your nice white summer purse, right? Then I work on taking out all the unnecessary items. Have about 50 business cards in your purse? Take out some and leave a small handful, maybe only ten. The essentials I always keep in my purse are my wallet (duh!), a pen, a few business cards, lip balm, headphones, and my feminine items for that time of the month 😉
A key function that I need all of my purses to have are lots of pockets. Especially for all your feminine things, because nothing is worse than having a tampon loose in your purse when you pull out your wallet and have it go flying out at your waiter. Confidence blown! When you’re on your period you need the most help you can get to feel your best. In addition to having pockets to hold everything, having discrete feminine products is super helpful, too. U by Kotex® has a couple great products for women on the go like me. Their U by Kotex® Click® Tampons are designed small and are pocket size and U by Kotex® Cleanwear® Ultrathin pads are super thin for fitting in your bag but also extremely comfortable.
U by Kotex® at Walmart can help you feel like U. There’s no need to sulk around the house in the baggiest clothes possible. Throw on what makes you feel like U and conquer the day. Plus, if $25 in rewards doesn’t make you feel better, I don’t know what else will! All you need to do is purchase any 2 packs of U by Kotex® at Walmart, text UbyKotex to 811811 and upload a photo of your receipt and then you can choose your customized reward at UbyKotexRewards.com.
U by Kotex® is available right at Walmart and if you’re lucky like me, it’s pretty close to your nearest outlet mall which has your favorite purse brands on awesome sales!
What matters to U? How do you feel confident and comfortable, especially during that time of the month?
