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!

I am always on the hunt for a good plus size mini skirt, but I feel like they are few and far between.  Because I am only 5'2, a lot of minis don't fit me the way they are supposed to fit taller plus size figures, which sucks because I actually love a good mini fit. To add insult to injury, most plus size brands rarely ever sell actual mini skirts. Who told these brands that curvy girls didn't wear or want short skirts?!

Every spring, I scour the Internet for mini skirts made for plus size women, and I find a select few. But I was pleasantly surprised when I found this Plus Size A-Line Denim Skirt from Forever 21. I love how versatile this skirt is, and it could really be dressed up or down for many different ocassions. But today, I decided to pair it with this Mulberry Dot Wrap Blouse from Common Assembly for a chic work from home look. Like many people in the U.S., I am working from home to help flatten the Coronavirus curve. I have currently been home for a month, and I learned rather quickly that I can't spend every day in sweatpants because it tanks my confidence. So there are days where I dress up as if I am going out with the girls or heading to work. Honestly, I feel so much better and much more productive when I get dressed. So I definitely recommend it if you are feeling like you have hit a confidence and productivity plateau.

I hope you all are hanging in there. I know this is a scary and unsettling time for everyone. I am always available to talk if you need a shoulder to lean on or would just like to make a new friend! Reach out to me on Instagram or visit my contact page to learn how you can reach me! XO

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a 2X in the wrap blouse, which is my usual size, and the top fits perfectly! I am wearing a size 2X in the mini skirt, which is my usual size, and the skirt is a little tight. There is no stretch in this skirt whatsoever. I can obviously wear it, but I would probably size up for a more accurate and comfortable fit. 

Forever 21 and Common Assembly sent me these clothes to review. All opinions are my own!
