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!

GRAY-WASHED

You have to love a pair of jeans that hug every curve, fit perfectly, and allow for all day comfort. I scored these gray-washed jeans at Forever 21 Plus. The store's plus size selection was not "love at first try on" for me, especially the line's denim options. The jeans were too light, too baggy, and had too many holes that would rip open the second I sat down—#thickthighproblems— and I was not impressed. But when I found this pair and easily pulled them on in the fitting room, I knew I had to have them. I'm still contemplating whether I love or hate the splotchy texture of the denim. I'm stuck on this one pair of gray jeans I had for a couple of years, which ended up ripping at the inner thighs—you guessed it, #thickthighproblems—but they were perfect. 

Where do you find your jeans? Tweet me (@nataliexcraig) or comment below to let me know where you scored the perfect pair of jeans. If you need "denim advice," check out some of my favorite denim posts below!
