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!

STAYING ACTIVE AND STYLISH DURING COVID-19

Chicago Plus Size Petite Fashion Blogger, influencer, YouTuber, and model Natalie Craig, of Natalie in the City, reviews Fabletics' hot pink yoga pants and one shoulder sports bra while also sharing tips on how to stay active and healthy during the Coronavirus COVID-19 quarantine.
Up until last year, I only wore all black while working out—whether I went to the gym, took a walk outside, or attended a yoga class. I wanted to make sure that my workout outfits were flattering and allowed me to blend in. I mean, who wants to stand out at the gym anyway? The gym is understandably one of the places where most people feel insecure, so it makes total sense why I would want to wear something that appeared to shrink my body and make me feel confident.

Well, when I started working out with my boyfriend Terry last year, I had a change of heart. I don't know if it was him constantly gassing me up, or my first time being in a traditional gym setting since I developed a positive body image. But before I knew it, I was wearing red yoga pants and a white top—two things I would have never thought I would wear to the gym. Since then, my gym confidence and outfit adventures have skyrocketed. As you can probably see from these photos, I am now confidently rocking plus size hot pink yoga pants. This Shine Set from Fabletics is currently sold out, but they have it in black! Even though we are preaching bold workout attire, the black set also packs a punch!

GET YOUR WORKOUTS IN AT HOME DURING COVID-19 QUARANTINE
If you are like me, you are currently practicing social distancing or quarantining yourself as the world grapples with the Coronavirus or COVID-19, which is SO smart. The world and I THANK YOU IMMENSELY. It's so important for us to flatten the curve and limit the spread of this virus. I know it can be very difficult to stay isolated, and you are probably missing your daily routine—whether the gym is a part of that or not. If you are looking for a way to stay active during the quarantine, my friend Sam, a yoga instructor at Yoga Six in Chicago is hosting yoga classes for FREE on Instagram live. Other studios in the area like Studio Three are also hosting classes so that you don't have to miss out on your daily workout. And those are just studios local to me that I can vouch for. I am sure your gym or favorite yoga studio is also adapting their scheduling.
