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!

GRAY SCALE

This is hands-down one of my favorite looks of 2017.  I'm a sucker for a monochromatic look—and a gray one at that—and cute mini skirt looks with knee-high boots! YASS!!

This outfit makes me feel cute and sexy, all the while feeling warm, even though I'm wearing a skirt. My go-to trick whe…

A SEQUIN MOMENT

Sequins have been ebbing and flowing in and out of style for decades. I remember sequins being huge my senior year of high school, and I was LIVING for them. I had the Poppy Pink Sequin Spotlight Coach bag, and I sported a sequin bomber jacket, a sequin tank top, and sequin converse. So yeah, when…

RIPPED JEANS AND FRINGE

Anything wit…

IS SHE WEARING RED BOOTS?

Yes. Yes, I am. Red boots have never been on my wishlist, and maybe I am still a little skeptical. But something about them told me I should just try them. Maybe what convinced me was the gold trim hardware on the heel or the fact that I have never had colored boots. Well here is my attempt!

FALL HUES

Don't you just love this gorgeous plum color for fall? It goes so well with the elements, namely the leaves, and I love the way it looks on my skin tone.

I received this AX PARIS CURVE Purple High Neck Lace Overlay Dress from Yours Clothing a couple of months ago, but it has since sold out. So…

NOVEMBER VIBES

Wow. Can you believe it's November already? This really is my favorite time of year for many reasons. I love colder weather and the holidays, but when early November comes around, I know I only have one month until my birthday. My birthday is so important to me, as I like to reflect a lot, and…

THE GIRL & THE CITY

Why don't I have more photos like this? Ya know, since my blog is called "Natalie in the City." The skyline should definitely be my backdrop more often. But sneaking onto rooftops or climbing up 8 flights of fire escape (in heels) isn't always worth the great views waiting at the…
