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 usually post on Mondays and Wednesdays, but I wanted to give y'all a little sneak peak at my 4th of July look! I was aiming for a festive outfit, but I didn't want to be too literal with a bunch of stars, stripes, reds, whites, and blues. So I turned to Torrid for this entire look, and I hope you enjoy my take on an Independence Day outfit!

I saw this Stars and Stripes scarf, and I knew I wanted to build my look around it, but I also wanted it to be the only part of the outfit that included actual stars and stripes. Once I had the scarf in mind, I began looking for summery pieces that could easily go with the scarf. Then I found this Dip Dye Camp Shirt, and knew it would only be perfect if I paired it with a pair of white jeans. I also added in this navy Lace Ladder Bralette for a fun little touch! I had so much fun playing with the scarf and wearing it different ways. Can't you tell? This outfit is perfect for a barbecue, parade, a picnic, or for watching fireworks at a nearby park. What are y'all wearing for the 4th?

SIZING INFO: I'm wearing a size 20 in the white jeans, which is two sizes larger than my usual size. These pants run little small because the material is thick so that the pants aren't see through—good call, Torrid! I'm wearing a size 2 in the Dip Dye Camp Shirt, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly! I am also wearing a size 2 in the navy Lace Ladder Bralette, which is my usual size, but the bralette runs a little tight!
