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 address the fact that I said that I loved "ruffles and fuchsia" together? I feel like this would have never even been in my vocabulary a couple of years ago. Well, at least we know I am evolving...into a girly girl. UGH.

Here's to me embracing my feminine side more and more instead of sticking to boring color palettes and basic clothing! This Going International Romper is from Chic Soul, which is the cutest plus size boutique ever! I have worn their clothing to Paris, out to brunch, and I have some really cute fall looks that I will be sharing with you very soon. I am also traveling to Napa, California with the brand in a couple of weeks, and I am so excited! But let's get back to this romper! The bust area was a little loose or just had a really deep, plunging neckline so I had to improvise a bit because my tatas were falling out a bit. I paired the romper with a gorgeous fuchsia lingerie teddy, which worked so well, and I really loved the way it turned out!

I included a lot of fun fuchsia pieces in the shop widget below if you're feeling some pink envy after reading this post!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a 2X, which is my usual size, and it fits pretty well. The romper zips on the side, and while it does have some stretch in it, it can be a tight fit for some with a bigger booty or thighs. The bust area was either really big on me or it's supposed to have a low dip, which is why I paired it with a lingerie teddy.
