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!

MY FLORIDA GETAWAY

It's been getting pretty chilly in Chicago, so I was really looking forward to a break from freezing my socks off every day with a trip to sunny Orlando, Florida. My boyfriend and I booked the trip in September, and figured that it would be the perfect time to make a break for it. We were both…

I'm a huge fan of bombers, but as the temps drop, I need a little more coverage than my go-to cropped bomber jackets. Which is why I scooped up this Rita Longline Bomber from Pink Clove, a U.K.-based plus size retailer. I like to keep my outfits simply-colored, so the nude tone with black trim really appealed to me. I also love that I could throw the bomber over an all black outfit to break up the dark tones.

And now, I am going to contradict my previous statement about "simply-colored ensembles" with this Beasts Small Wristlet from Coach above. I lived life on the edge—in my terms, at least—by choosing this mustard-colored wristlet over the black version of it. While my outfit falls in line perfectly with what I usually wear, I love that this wristlet is so unexpected. I mean, it has a freaking Woolly Mammoth on the front of it! The wristlet is from Coach's new Rexy line, and I have to say it has become my new favorite thing.

I'm wearing a U.K. size 20 (U.S. 16). The bomber fits true to size.
