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!

ARE WE STILL WEARING JEANS?

Chicago Plus Size Petite Fashion Blogger, influencer, and model Natalie in the City Craig reviews Fashion Nova Denim

When you wear sweatpants 24/7 for three months straight, the thought of putting on jeans is frightening. Not only did I wonder if my favorite jeans would still fit, but I also wondered if I would ever be able to go back to wearing jeans. However, since I have made the pledge to dress up and do my makeup at least once a week, I decided that I would wear jeans for my next dress up day.

And when that day came, I kind of cheated. Instead of pulling out any old pair of jeans from my drawer, I ran for my favorite Classic Mid Rise Skinny Jeans from Fashion Nova Curve. Why is this cheating? Well, because Fashion Nova jeans are so stretchy that they are practically leggings. I paired the denim with my favorite Fashion Nova KiKi Cropped Top—if we are being honest, I own these cropped tops in every color—and a lightweight Business Casual Coat for a relaxed but chic look. So how did I feel about wearing jeans all day? Surprisingly, I felt really good. The jeans mixed with the crop top made me feel sexy, actually. And because the jeans are so comfortable, I felt blissful all day!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 1X in the jeans, which is one size smaller than my usual size, and the jeans fit perfectly. I usually size down because these jeans are so stretchy and I want a snug fit. I am wearing a size 3X in the Business Casual Coat, which is one size larger than my usual size, and it fits perfectly. I sized up because I was afraid the arms would be tight, and I was right. I am wearing a size 2X in the KiKi Cropped Top, which is my usual size, and the top fits perfectly!
