Hi, I'm Natalie...
I am 5'2 and a size 18, which means I am petite AND plus size. Those two sizing terms might seem like polar opposites, but full figures come in a variety of shapes and sizes—one of those being short! As a petite plus size fashionista, it has been extremely difficult to fit into fashion and find clothing made for my body. But I'm here to share my petite plus style tips with you and to show the world that short, plus size women belong in fashion!

HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR EVERYONE

Step aside Santa Claus, I found someone who has better presents. 
What are you getting your girlfriend, boyfriend, mom, dad, sister, brother, and friends for Christmas?
Times are tough, we're broke college kids, I have bills, rent is due.. I get it, there are a million and one reasons why you don't want to spend every last penny you have on Christmas presents. It doesn't mean that you don't want to make the people in your life feel special this holiday season, it just means you have to get crafty. 


MEN'S WINTER COAT GUIDE

  • Pea coats can give any outfit a dapper look. Layer your favorite sweater or long sleeve underneath. These coats are very versatile so you can wear any wash or material of pants that you desire! The look above is kind of preppy, if you like that stick with oxford shoes, if you want to keep it casual go with modest sneakers like navy Vans.

  • Puffy coats can cause a bulky look. Pair fitted clothing with this coat, but balance it out with some bulky boots.

I spent the day out at Navy Pier with my roomates! We all played photographer and enjoyed the ultimate view from the top of the ferris wheel. When you get so busy and caught up in school, work and internships you forget to appreciate the little things about the beautiful place you live in. So it was nice to get all dolled up and fall in love with the city all over again.

SPEND YOUR SUMMER IN A CROP TOP

Crop tops, where do I begin? I used to see them in all of my favorite stores and I always thought to myself, "Yay! High five the skinny bitches, do you want a cookie with that?! No.. of course you don't, because if you did you wouldn't be wearing crop tops." Then I thought about h…

DIY: BYE SUMMER FRIZZ

Whether you're stuck in humidity, dry heat, or other harsh summer conditions chances are that your hair needs some attention. Humidity causes frizz, dry heat keeps moisture from reaching the ends of your hair, and styling also takes a toll on previously damaged hair. Don't worry, the solution to your dry hair problems can be found in your kitchen cabinet! 

Coconut oil and olive oil strengthen and soften damaged hair. When you apply heat to your hair the cuticles will open and soak up the nutrients from the oils, leaving you with healthy, soft, and shiny hair.

CALIFORNIA ADVENTURES



My morning was supposed to start with a flight from Boise, ID to San Jose, CA. My afternoon would be spent on a connecting flight to LAX and then to San Luis Obispo.
Instead, we hopped off of the plane in San Jose, rented a car, and decided to take the scenic route on Highway 101 all the way to San Luis Obispo. Along the way, we stopped to shop. 
OK... We stopped every 5 miles.

Stay tuned for more outfits, adventures, and California dreamin'!


HELLO BEAUTIFUL, SCHOOL IS OUT
