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!

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 NO. 

So, lately, I have been putting more effort into my casual ensembles beyond just piecing together my favorite workout gear. Which is why Dressbarn's DB Sunday line is the spirit animal of my new, relaxed outfits. The DB Sunday's slogan is "Get cozy on the couch, and indulge in some much needed me time." While I'm all about having a lazy day and some extra "me time," I think the line also works well for those #GirlBosses on the go who also want to be comfortable.

You all know that I love anything that laces up (exhibit A: Lace-up leggings, B: Lace-up dress, and C: Lace-up blouse). So it comes as no surprise that I gravitated toward this DB Sunday striped lace-up top. The material is thick, stretchy, and comfortable, making it a perfect piece for a day of running errands. And this drawstring mini skirt—it's actually a skort, but you'd never know—gives me the boost of confidence and a playful edge that I need to kick start my day. I topped the look off with a denim jacket and some white slip on sneakers.
