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!

MY FAVORITE PLUS SIZE WINTER COAT

It's happening: I am finally going downtown on a regular basis since the pandemic began to spread in March. While I am definitely still cautious about contracting and spreading coronavirus, it feels so nice to be back in the city where I feel so energized. This morning, I had to run a couple of errands downtown and felt like getting dressed up. I wanted an outfit that I felt confident and comfortable in. Oh, and it also had to keep me warm since Chicago has gotten a little chilly as of late.

I have been on the lookout for stylish plus size jackets for this fall and winter season, and I think I finally found one...or two. Hear me out: This Fashion to Figure faux fur coat is reversible and also doubles as a puffer coat, which is perfect for me! Since I live in Chicago, I need a coat that is going to keep me warm, but will also look extremely stylish and I love that I can easily achieve both of those things with this one coat. I created a really comfortable look with Fashion to Figure's high waist skinny jeans, paired with a plus size sweater from Lane Bryant. I just got these skinny jeans from Fashion to Figure's latest denim launch, which has so many cute styles! To elevate the outfit, I decided to embrace the fur side of my new coat. I felt so cozy and luxurious walking around in this all day! Lately, I have been trying different styles of denim because I *heard* that plus size skinny jeans were going out of style—whatever...I refuse to believe this.. lol. I recently had a run in with plus size mom jeans, which weren't the worst, but I truly do love my skinnies! I can't see myself phasing them out of my closet. So here's to hoping they don't go out of style anytime soon. Who's with me? 

I hope you had a great week! XO

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2 in the faux fur coat, which is my usual size, and it fits me well! I am wearing a size 18 in the skinny jeans, which is my usual size, and they fit perfectly. I always feel like Fashion to Figure's denim runs a little big. I could have sized down for a tighter fit, but I feel like the size 18 is the comfiest fit for me. I am wearing a size 14/16 in the sweater, which is one size smaller than my usual size. I sized down in this garment because I knew it was going to be a looser fit. I love the way it fits me!

Fashion to Figure sent me the jeans and coat to review. All opinions are 110% my own!
