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 have been a bit obsessed with blouses that tie around the neck lately. Call it a fall trend, but I really love how chic the bow tie blouse looks, and I think it will be a staple that will stay long after fall ends. If you also love this trend, I will include my favorite bow tie blouses at the bottom of this post in the shop widget! 

I thought about pairing this top with a more intricate skirt, perhaps a pleated leather midi, or a simple pair of light wash jeans and nude heels. However, I opted for a classic black pencil skirt and a pair of gray heels. The color of this blouse also caught my eye. I love purple grays and taupe grays, and depending on what the lighting is like, this blouse can take on both colors.
