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!

Whenever I am feeling insecure, blah, or lack luster, I put on an all black look. Why? Well, an all black ensemble looks sleek and polished—even if it's yoga pants, a black hoodie, and a cropped leather jacket. And when I look chic and polished, I feel vibrant.

Now, I know this look isn't a hoodie and yoga pants... sorry to disappoint, but I have something far cuter to show off! This gorgeous black button-down mini dress is simply sexy, and it can be matched and paired with anything. This Push Your Buttons Mini Dress and the Put a Ring On it Faux-Leather Moto Jacket I paired with it is from a newer plus size brand called Soncy. And get this: BOTH of these items are on sale right now! You can also get these items for $15 off when you use the code "nataliecraigxsoncy". But back to the dress....a lot of plus size dresses are extremely long on my 5'2 figure, so to find an actual mini dress that has a short and flirty fit excites me! I would go for a "mini" fit over a maxi or midi any day—even though I couldn't wear it to work. A shorter cut just looks better on me, and I love to show off my legs. Anyone with me?

Writing this post has inspired me to photograph my next chic athleisure look, because let's face it, we all have those days where we don't want to wear anything but sweatpants. And honestly, if I'm not working or at an event, I'm probably wearing something simple. You down?

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2 in both the Push Your Buttons Mini Dress and the Put a Ring On it Faux-Leather Moto Jacket, which is my usual size, and while both of the items fit, they are a little tight, and I probably could have sized up in them. I must say, the quality of both of these pieces is great!
