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!

Prints of all sorts are calling spring's name, but one print in particular has fashion lovers, and myself going crazy!

Big, bold, and beautiful stripes are the key to mastering a fierce look.
Even though black and white stripes are a little Beetle juice and jail house looking they are the colors of spring. Incorporate neon colors with accessories to spice up your monochromatic outfit if you are feeling too drab with black and white.

The runways at fashion week were covered in full on striped ensembles as well as striped accents. Dress subtly with a striped crop top or emulate your favorite designers from Fashion Week and go full out.

My spring break must have has to be striped pants. They have everyone staring with their daring and edgy look. Pair them with neon colored wedges or heels for a night out. Dress them down with a black chiffon top or a white blouse tucked in with neon sandals for a casual look. I love mixing in colorful jewelery with a bold print like this.
