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!

THE CHICEST COMBAT BOOTS YOU'VE EVER SEEN

A MINI SKIRT & A LONG CARDI

I found this skirt at Marshall's, and it's actually from Express. I never reall…

MY OWN BOSS

Up until now, I have let a lot of people make decisions for me because it was easier. I am so indecisive with everything from pizza toppings to my future plans, which made it easier for me to take the backseat and let the choices of others dictate my life. As you can probably imagine, this really …

OCTOBER VIBES

I know I've been slacking lately, but hopefully this adorable fall look will make up for it! This sweater is my absolute favorite. I picked this Bell Sleeve Sweater with Trim up from Eloquii a month ago, and I have been dying for it to get a little bit cooler outside so I could wear it. I love…
