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!

GIRL ON THE GO

Let's keep it real. For every "put together" outfit I strut down the street in, I have five casual ensembles waiting for me to slide into the second I get home. While I love, love, love my yoga pants and sweatshirts, I hate that everyone asks me if I'm on my way to the gym. UGH N…

SPRING SHOWERS

So March is almost over, and I'm itching to ditch my winter coat and shed heavy layers, but living in Chicago isn't making the switch to spring any easier. One day it's 80 degrees and sunny, and the next day it's pouring rain and chilly. So what is a girl to do when she can't w…

As both a blogger and working professional, a white button up shirt is a go-to staple in my closet because I can dress it up or dress it down for multiple occasions. Lately, I have been dressing my white button ups with a black bow tie or a sharp blazer, but I wanted to try a different take on thi…

PREPPY DAYS

FINDING THE RIGHT PLUS SIZE SWIMWEAR

When I was a teenager, my friends and I would frequent the water parks and beaches, and I always sported a two piece bikini. Granted, I was a lot smaller back then, but still heavier than all of my friends. The point is, I have never shied away from being in a swimsuit in public. Sure, I may have …

MY DIGITAL DETOX ROUTINE

We are so connected to our phones, tablets, and laptops today because we rely on our technology for so much more than just communication. To add onto our technology addiction, many of us sit at a desk typing on a computer or talking on the phone from 9-to-five. Basically, we are inundated with tec…

GLOW

I have been on the hunt for a whimsical duster that can be worn in an office setting, but also with an easy breezy ensemble. I finally found this beautiful blush-colored duster in Forever 21's plus section, and initially I reached for the military green color, but my BFF Katherine guided me in…

PRO-TIPS FOR NEGOTIATING LIKE A BOSS

Every year, I celebrate International Women's Day with either a pedicure, massage, or my favorite dinner. But this year, I'm being bold for change, which is this year's International Women's Day theme. 
There are so many inequalities facing us today, and with the recent political sta…
