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!

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 isn't a great way to live. This summer was a pretty transformative time for me. One day in June, I looked in the mirror and didn't know who was staring back at me. This was because I wasn't taking charge of my life and prioritizing my wants and needs.

So I made the decision to make a bold change, and be on my own, forcing myself to listen to my inner voice to guide me where I needed to be. I thought it was only fitting that I had a shirt that spoke to my new-found self awareness and boss mentality. This My Own Boss shirt is from Fashion Nova Curve, and I paired it with this What's in The Envelope Skirt. I plan on sporting this cute crop top with jeans, sweats, shorts, and skirts, as it's really versatile and simple, but still makes a huge statement.

Are you living your truth? Are you your own boss? Take a second to look inward to make sure you are on track and in tune with yourself! You won't regret it!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a 2x in the What's in The Envelope Skirt and My Own Boss shirt, which is my usual size, and they fit perfectly.
