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!

PRETTY IN FUCHSIA

When I first saw this romper on my friend Britney, I knew I needed to have it. However, at first glance, I thought it as a dress. "It's a romper!" Britney told me. And just like that, I was obsessed. I love the bright fuchsia color and the ruffles were darling. But can we just addres…

YOUR BEST NIGHT’S SLEEP IS THREE DAYS AWAY

If you have been a fan of Natalie in the City for the past three years, you may remember my first ever modeling gig with Big Fig Mattress.

WERKIN IT

BOHO CHIC

This past weekend was Dream Big Midwest, Chicago's curvy girl conference! I attended the event, and I also taught a workshop called "From Blogging to Booked," which was so fun. The day of the conference, I had no idea what I was going to wear. However, I recently received a package f…

OUT OF PLACE

Over the years, my style has really evolved! Coming from sleek, form-fitting, all-black outfits, I am now wearing bright colored floral jumpsuits. And those are three things I would have never thought would be in my wardrobe, but here we are.

I really have to credit Fashion Nova for pushing me out…

STRIPES & RUFFLES

This blog has really pushed me to be more open-minded when it comes to fashion. Seriously, if it weren't for you all pushing me outside of my style boundaries, and encouraging me to try new styles, I would probably still be wearing all-black outfits and sweating my a** off in jeans all summer.

FEELING LAVENDER

I always thought that the light purple hue known as lavender was my best friend Katherine's color. I never even considered that it would be a favorite of mine. I usually don't wear a lot of color, let alone any shade of purple, but lavender has really caught my eye lately. From the outfit
