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!

At the office, I like to keep my style simple, but not exactly what you would expect for business casual. I am always playing with knee-high boots and blouses with bold necklines. But every now and then, I embrace an over sized gray cardigan with an all black ensemble.

This look, pictured above, is one of my favorite outfits to wear to work—with a longer pencil skirt, of course. I love that this peplum blouse compliments my figure and adds emphasis with the use of varying lines. The black skirt is not much to write home about, but when pairing it with a top like this and some cute lace up ballet flats, I couldn't ask for much more. I also love polishing off the look with a black blazer.

Tell me what you wear to work in the comments below, and share any questions you may have for me on office attire!
