OOTD: Confidence is Key | Bold Leopard Print Skirt

I didn't always have the confidence I have today. It definitely took a few years of style soul-searching to figure myself out. Sometimes I look back and cringe at the outfit risks and blunders I made circa 2010, but I had a young, fearlessness about me that I still admire! I've always been a huge lover of bold statement skirts with classic silhouettes. Perhaps they're my way of expressing my personality to the world? I can easily slip them on with a basic tee + heels and have a perfectly pulled together outfit even when I'm at my worst.

One of the worst feelings is having your confidence trumped by Aunt Flo making a completely unexpected visit. I make sure to carry the U by Kotex traveler pack with me in my purse or tote bag for school! There's nothing worse than being unprepared and possibly ruining your outfit. Trust me -- I've been there, done that! It's not a good feeling at all. Having the traveler pack is like having the best friend with you who never breaks girl code. You can currently purchase a U by Kotex bonus pack in stores that includes the traveler pack, so you can protect your confidence at home and out-and-about! They even come in these super cute quiet wrappers that don't look like the typical tampon, so no one will even know and you don't have to feel bad about slipping one out.

The traveler pack is currently apart of the U by Kotex bonus pack that you can purchase at Walmart.
