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!

Chicago sees temperatures above 60 and what do I do? Dress for summer. Watching the Coachella Snapchat stories gave me some ideas on how I could play with festival trends by pulling pieces directly from my wardrobe. 

This sheer black shawl is actually a button up dress that I wanted to wear in a different way for this outfit. I love playing with contrasting lengths, and maxi skirts and dresses. However, at 5'2, I have to be careful with how I pair long dresses or skirts with other pieces so my outfit doesn't take away from my height. I paired this mini skirt with the dress to show off my legs.
