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!

Two of the most notable trends of Summer '16 are exposed shoulders and the sexy crisscross lace up tops and dresses. I happened to score both trends in one garment from Forever 21. So I paired my favorite blouse with some ripped denim and took this outfit on the road to Chicago's Food Truck Fest. I really don't think there is a better way to go about a summer day in the city. My choker and necklace duo is also one of my favorite summer covets from my road trip to Ann Arbor last month. Although the same choker isn't on the Pitaya website (the boutique I bought it from), I will include some similar pieces below for you to shop! Let me know what your favorite summer trends are in the comment section!
