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! 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!
But that's the short and sweet version...learn more here:

Did anyone else hang up their winter coat over Christmas weekend to enjoy sunny skies and a warm(ish) Chicago day? As soon as I saw the forecast, which was above 56°, I committed to taking full advantage of the warm temps. What a true Christmas miracle!

I just got these thigh high wide calf boots from Fashion to Figure, but I haven't worn them out yet because I wanted to keep them safe from the snow. These boots from Fashion to Figure have sold out, but I have created a shoppable widget below that includes some of my favorite wide calf boots so that you can find the perfect boots for you! If you are able to get your hands on a pair from Fashion to Figure, make sure you double check the size chart and measure your foot. These boots have a lot of room and stretch and they are very comfortable, but just double and triple check that you have the right size! I'm wearing a size 8. 

I originally planned on pairing the boots with a pair of jeans or leggings and a sweater, but I decided on a pencil dress topped off with an unbuttoned chiffon midi dress—talk about polar opposites. I love wearing a dress with boots! However, I was a little weary to wear a dress with boots that come up to my lower thigh. To my surprise, I think this look worked well, and I will totally sport it again—maybe not until late spring, though. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe holiday. I'm looking forward to what the new year has in store! I know I'm not the only one who can't wait for that clock to strike 12.
