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!

Would you believe me if I told you that a company that made tractors and rugged work boots also made a trendy line of lifestyle shoes? Well, prepare to believe me.

Many of you may or may not be familiar with the brand Caterpillar. Growing up in Idaho, I saw the brand and its products across many cornfields, farms, and wide-open land. But I never thought I would be sitting down for brunch and endless mimosas at one of Chicago’s hottest locations with a tractor manufacturer. But here I was.

Cat Footwear—Caterpillar’s shoe line—is hitting the road this season with the Make A Scene Tour to celebrate the launch of its Fall/Winter 2016 collection.

The Cat Footwear team invited me and other Chicago bloggers to the Chicago stop of their tour at SoHo House for brunch. I also got an exclusive look at Cat’s rugged boots for fall and lightened up textures and styles for spring that offer protection from unpredictable elements.

I scooped up these Cat Coax boots at the event, and I fell in love with the unexpected comfort of the high wedge and the durability of the boots in rainy conditions. The fold down ankle also makes this boot versatile as it offers a two different looks in one shoe. See how I styled them below!
