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!

I've been embracing a lot of color lately, and I realized that I actually love wearing color! Who would have thought that a girl who asks, "Do you have this in black?" would be having a blast with a new, colorful wardrobe? I never thought I'd see the day. With that being said, I am resorting back to my old ways for this post, but don't fret, there is a hint of blush in this ensemble! And starting next week, we'll be back to colorful outfits!

TROPICAL GODDESS

I found the secret to feeling like a goddess, and it's this dress. As soon as I slipped this maxi dress on, I felt like the baddest chick on the planet! It's off the shoulder, it has high slits, and the tropical floral print is divine. I wore this dress out while shopping, and it was defin…

WILD THOUGHTS

After I saw DJ Khaled's new music video for "Wild Thoughts," featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, I could not get Rihanna's red, cropped, off-the-shoulder blouse out of my mind! So, naturally, I ran to Forever 21, H&M, TJ Maxx, and Marshals to try and find a similar top. To n…

DATE NIGHT LOOK: MUTED FLORALS AND TULLE

Do you remember when I tried my first tutu? I was a little skeptical and really nervous. I usually only wear clothes that are form fitting, and I shy away from extra fabric at all costs. But when I slid on my first Society + tutu, I knew it was something special, and that the skirt would be worth …

DENIM SKIRT AND A SWEATSHIRT

I am definitely #TeamCasual. However, I am also known for using the term "casual" too loosely and just rocking gym clothes. Feel me? Since I'm a recovering gym gear wear-aholic, I have been trying to create looks that are put together, but casual, and still a little fashion forward.

BOHEMIAN CHIC

I'm kind of weird. I love the idea of summer, but I always feel kind of uninspired when it comes to summer fashion. I face the same dilemma every year: It's 90°and I should wear shorts or a skirt. While that sounds great, I do a lot of walking since I rely on that and public transportation …

EMBRACE YOUR CURVES

I think I just found my new go-to look for a night out. The dress I currently love wearing out on a Saturday night to a bar or the club is this faux-suede lace up dress from Curvy Sense. However, I think the look I'm wearing in this post just dethroned the suede dress. Am I the only person not…

WHO WEARS SHORT SHORTS?

Summer has officially arrived in Chicago! While I love warm weather, I despise some of the things that come with it. As a thick chick, wearing shorts and skirts is really difficult because of "chub rub," and I know all my fellow curvy ladies feel my pain. I get so many comments on Instag…
