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've been pushing the boundaries on my comfort zone lately, and I must say, this jumpsuit is no exception.

I found this gorgeous Crepe Batwing Cut Out Jumpsuit from Pretty Little Thing, and I fell in love. But I knew I had a hard choice ahead of me because this jumpsuit came in black, mustard, and blush. You know me, I wanted the black one. DONE DEAL. But something told me to take a risk, and try some color. After all, I am on a roll with color this summer. So I ordered the jumpsuit in mustard first. But when I got it, it was way too big on me. And while I LOVED the color, I immediately wished I got the blush as soon as I ordered the yellow one. So instead of ordering a smaller yellow one, I ordered the blush one. (Read more about the sizing of this jumpsuit at the end of this post). Confused yet? All-in-all, I do like the blush jumpsuit. I think it's really cute, but maybe not the most flattering thing ever. I enjoy the batwing style of the top and the cute tie in the middle, though. I think this garment would have been more flattering in black (shocker), and it may have been more wearable beyond this photo shoot. But I am still going to try and incorporate this look into some weekend plans because it is cute and different. Thoughts? 

SIZING INFO: I ordered a size 16, which is kind of my usual size, and it fits me OKAY. I say "kind of my usual size" because I bounce back and forth from a 16 to an 18. I initially ordered the size 18 and it was so big on me, I even considered ordering a size 14. The fabric is VERY stretchy, and the legs are extremely long. If you are under 5'4 you might need to get these bad boys altered—like me!
