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!

This is such a cool moment for me. I never ever thought that I would be able to shop with my friends (who are thin) at Anthropologie. We used to spend entire Saturdays in the store shopping and lounging—in the Chicago Avenue store's home section. While my friends would shop, I would just tag along because at the time, Anthropologie didn't carry plus sizes. However, as you may know, Anthro has expanded its sizing.

Not only am I excited that I can now shop with my friends when we go into Anthropologie, but I am also looking forward to expanding my style with the brand's eclectic mix of bohemian chic garments.

My first Anthropologie look makes me so happy because everything about this outfit is a step outside of my comfort zone. Recently, I have been embracing trends and styles that I previously wouldn't have because I was so close minded when it came to fashion. But now, I am also willingly trying clothing that I used to deem "unflattering." All of my previous style rules have been pushed to the side, which has allowed me to enjoy fashion on an entirely different level. And this outfit is the perfect example of my style evolution.

Let's start with the pants. These are boyfriend jeans, and up until recently, jeans that didn't hug my curves and were loose-fitting were a no for me. But lately, I have been playing with proportions and wearing what I feel good in—regardless of what that looks like. I love the embellishments on these Pilcro High-Rise Embellished Slim Straight Jeans. I rolled them up once for an ankle fit because they were a little long on my 5'2 frame. I paired the jeans with the Martina Textured Blouse and I topped the look off with Jamie Lace-Up Heels and this Marguerite Trimmed Rancher Hat.

See the outfit in action on my Instagram: Pants that make me dance! 

  SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 18 in both the Martina Textured Blouse and Pilcro High-Rise Embellished Slim Straight Jeans, which is my usual size, and they both fit pretty well. The jeans were a little tight, but they ended up fitting after wearing them for a while.
