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!

PLUS SIZE FAUX SHEARLING COAT

I felt myself shiver today. Even on the coldest days, rarely am I ever “too cold.” Maybe it was the way I was dressed—not practically, as usual—or the wind chill, but today felt like winter. I really don’t mind winter, in fact, I’d rather have it than summer on most days. And this year, I’m especi…

LOVELY IN LEOPARD

By now, you shouldn't be surprised that I have been wearing more animal print than ever before. The previously shunned prints have made their way back into my life, and I have been loving how much life leopard adds to my wardrobe. Leopard is the must-have print of this season acting as both a …

GOLDEN HOUR

I have never ever had the opportunity to take photos during "golden hour," but I have always loved sunset photos because the lighting is diffused and warm, which gives the photo a vibe unlike any other. So I recently trekked up to my rooftop during sunset to snap these beautiful photos.

RAIN-COATED

I don't think I have ever owned a raincoat—until now. I guess I have never really needed one or I thought they were kind of excessive. I usually go for a cropped moto or leather jacket when it's raining, and then I transition to a winter coat because here in Chicago, we barely have an actu…

MY DREAM WORKOUT SET

I can't even tell you how long I have been searching for saucy looking gym gear. When I stumbled across Kelly Rowland's new line for Fabletics I saw my favorite shade of green, and then I laid eyes on this Fearless set. From the metallic leather-like side panels to the matte cropped hoodie…

Throughout the rest of this month, you can help Gordmans raise money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) by shopping in store and posting about your #GotItAtGordmans finds on social media a…

THE SUNGLASSES THAT MAKE EVERY LOOK POP

Unlike most fashionistas, I tend not to accessorize too much. It's not that I have never been into jewelry or accessories, but it's more so that I just never think to put any on as I am rushing out the door every morning. However, this is not the case when it comes to eyewear. I take my su…

MY OWN GOALS

Two blog posts in two days...who am I?! I know I have been giving my blog a little less love than Instagram as of late—and even my Instagram game is struggling. I have been traveling for the past two weeks straight, and if we are talking about September, I took a total of four trips throughout the…
