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!

Ever since I scored this knitted cardigan from Zara, I have been getting some major school girl/preppy vibes from every outfit I top off with the piece. The pink tones in this cardigan would usually push me away from the garment, but the way the colors worked together, it reminded me of a Chanel tweed jacket, and since the piece was on sale, I just couldn't pass it up. I love wearing the cardigan to work with a black blouse or this white button-up with a black neck tie. The sleeves are a little long, but I think that was the look Zara was going for. I like to roll up the sleeves to accommodate for that extra length and give the piece a different look.
