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!

IS THIS BASIC?

I never thought I would have developed a full-blown "quarantine wardrobe," or had to put together multiple work from home outfits...let alone that I would be wearing these outfits well into the end of 2020. But here we are. And now, Chicago has officially mandated a stay at home order for the next 30 days.

For the longest time, my work from home outfit consisted of plus size sweatpants or an oversized T-shirt. While I didn't hate lounging around in comfortable clothes, I noticed that my confidence and productivity were low when I didn't get dressed. So now that we are going into the second wave of stay at home orders, I am glad I know what to expect and how to keep myself feeling confident and balanced—with my wardrobe and beyond. 

This outfit has been my favorite look for a day out. It's perfect for the times when I just want to wear something comfortable, but I don't want to feel frumpy. I feel like a beige plus size coat can elevate any look, so I usually start with one of those! To add some dimension to the outfit, I threw on a pair of faux leather leggings. I kept my top simple with a beautiful plus size black sweater. Since I live in the city, I am usually walking around a lot so I topped this look off with my favorite Adidas sneakers! To elevate the look further, I usually throw on a cute designer handbag and a pair of statement sunglasses. 

No matter where you are, I hope you keep your head up during this next month as we all grapple with COVID-19! XO
