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!

Do you remember when the "hi-lo" trend was a thing? It seemed like every maxi dress, skirt, and top had a hi-lo fit—and if you don't know what "hi-lo" is, it's when a top, dress, or skirt is shorter in the front and longer in the back. I used to love the trend, but eventually, I got sick of it. I wanted to show off my booty and hide my lower tummy, which frustrated me when it came to this trend because it was showcasing and hiding the areas opposite of what I had wanted.

However, that was years ago, and I have since pushed myself to embrace my lower tummy, which in fact, is very "fluffy." So when I came across this hi-lo Love Like Yours Top from Fashion Nova Curve's new Wear to Work line, I decided to challenge myself and give the trend another chance. Oh yeah, and we won't skip over the fact that Fashion Nova launched a work line...crazy right? If you want to see some of the other pieces I scored from the collection, watch my I WORE FASHION NOVA TO WORK FOR A WEEK haul on YouTube! But anyways, back to this look. I paired the hi-lo top—which I would totally wear to work if anyone was wondering—with my Midnight Rider Fashion Nova jeans. These have been my only jeans from Fashion Nova, until recently, when I tried all of the brand's high-waist classic denim.

If you love this look, you can score 20% off with the code "NATCITY" on your next Fashion Nova purchase!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a 2X in the Love Like Yours Top, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly. I am wearing a size 18 in the Midnight Rider Fashion Nova jeans, which is my usual size, and they fit perfectly, too!
