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!

I usually shy away from longer dresses and skirts because I'm only five feet tall and rarely wear heels to compensate. However, I decided to push my "self-made" boundaries out of the way for this burgundy cardigan. The slits on the cardigan break up the silhouette, allowing my pleated tulle midi dress to peak through, and the best part: The deep and rich colors actually complement my figure. 

The black slip of the dress under the pleated tulle hugs my curves, which gives me a great look even with the flow of the dress. What do you pair with a duster / maxi cardigan? I need some inspiration!

Oh and I know it may be a little heard to make out the detail on one of my gold necklaces below, but the smaller rectangular piece has the Chicago coordinates on them. The necklace is from Love EmilyD, and it's the sweetest thing. I also included a coordinate necklace below that you can customize with your favorite town!
