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 never thought I would see the day where the velour tracksuit would be back in style, but now that it is, I don't hate it! In fact, young Natalie who used to be obsessed with the Juicy Couture velour tracksuit is living for this moment!

I first became aware of velour's rise to prominence when I saw Kim Kardashian's velour Skims tracksuit. The new velour line features bralettes and velour robes, which look super luxe and—in my opinion—elevate the velour material. 

Since the Skims velour line sold out so fast, I turned to Fashion Nova Curve—which already had a plus size velour tracksuit in so many different colors. Since I haven't embraced the material much over the past decade, I decided to ease into it with an all black look. But as I get more comfortable with the velour trend, I may try bolder colors. All-in-all, I absolutely love wearing this tracksuit. Whether I am working from home or running to the grocery store, this is currently my go-to set. I also love to slide on some  crisscross fuzzy slippers when I am lounging around to get the full cozy and luxe feel. The crisscross style of fuzzy slippers has been so popular lately so I included a bunch of my favorite styles in the shop widget below!

I could get used to wearing plus size loungewear everyday...oh wait, I already have! #thanksquarantine

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in this Fashion Nova Curve Velour Tracksuit, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly!

Fashion Nova sent me this look to review. All opinions are 100% my own!
