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 won't let me win. I want it to be fall so bad, but every single time it gets chilly outside, a sweltering humidity follows. As you can probably guess, this hinders my day-to-day outfits quite a bit. 

During one of these hot and cold days, I opted for this faux-suede, button up dress from Chic Soul. While I anticipated that the dress would be bit longer in length, the shorter cut made it easier to rock during this sticky and humid day. I would still recommend ordering one size up from your regular size to account for the short length. If you want to transition into fall attire a little sooner than everyone else—like me—this button up dress with roll up sleeves is your ticket! Score this dress or another item from Chic Soul with a $25 gift card! To enter, follow Chic Soul on Instagram or Facebook, and then comment on this post with a link to your favorite piece on chicsoul.com. I will be randomly picking a winner on Friday, September 9 at 12:00 p.m. CST!

I'm wearing a size 2x. This dress runs small, I would order one or two sizes larger than what you usually wear.
