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! 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!
But that's the short and sweet version...learn more here:

My spring break away from the freezing cold of Chicago, and what seemed like endless days of school and work, was a success. I spent the past week in Boise, Idaho with my family, friends, and my cat. It was consistently warm in Boise so it was nice to shed the fifty layers of clothing I need to survive a Chicago winter that doesn't want to admit it is spring time.

 Boise was great to me with temperatures above 60 degrees all week, which meant I could pretty much wear whatever I wanted. Maxi dresses and light cardigans, don't pinch me... I'm not done dreaming!

I'm so happy to be home, even though when I stepped off the plane in Chicago it was a chilly 32 degrees. I missed you too Chi Town. Yesterday the temperature was up to 66 degrees, and the sun was out for a brief period of time. Now as I look out my window I see rain showering the city as lightning strikes in the distance. 

Rain, sleet, snow, or shine.. (lets wish for no more snow) I can't wait to bring more spring inspired outfits to the blog. Click "Read More" below and scroll down for more pictures from my trip and pictures of my cat... because everyone loves cat pictures.
