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 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 everything about the sleeves from the bell shape to the stripes. UGH! Isn't it just the cutest thing?! And it's super comfortable. I've worn this sweater to work with a pair of dress pants, out to the farmers market with a pair of jeans, and now with this pleated faux-leather skirt.

You may have seen this leather skirt once or twice on the blog, as I have had it for about two years now, and it makes an appearance every once in a while. I have recently renewed may interest in pleated midi skirts after shying away from them for so long. Although I bought this pleated leather midi skirt in Tampa, Florida at a boutique, I found a similar one at Fashion to Figure, and I will include some more to choose from in the shop widget below!

I couldn't resist putting these two pieces together in the name of fall. I think they pair well together, don't you?

SIZING INFO: I'm wearing a size 22/24 in the Bell Sleeve Sweater with Trim, which is two sizes larger than my usual size. However, I sized up because I wanted the sweater to have a loose fit.
