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!

When I first began having the desire to wear snake skin, I wondered if it was just me or if everyone around me was feeling the craze, too. Sure enough, snake skin can be found everywhere this season: from shoes to bodysuits. So it’s inevitable that you and I are going to end up with something snake skin—whether we like it or not.

While I did buy some snake skin booties and a bodysuit, I was still craving another item of clothing in the same print. Then, these Keeping My Distance Pants from Chic Soul entered my life. It may not be the ‘70s, but I needed these bell bottoms in my life! I chose to pair the pants with this Simply Black Tank, however, as I get more comfortable with the print, I plan to pair the pants with vibrant neons and more expressive tops. But for now, I’m keeping it simple. I wore this look to a photo shoot I had, and I loved that this was such a comfortable outfit, but it didn’t sacrifice style. Usually, I would just wear sweat pants and a tank top to a shoot, but I liked that I arrived on set in style!

If you’re not familiar with Chic Soul, it’s actually their birthday today! Head over to their Instagram account to wish them a happy birthday: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Today, Chic Soul is giving all of their customers a free shirt and free shipping on their orders!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in both the Keeping My Distance Pants and Simply Black Tank, which is my usual size, and they both fit perfectly!
