Why don’t I have more photos like this? Ya know, since my blog is called “Natalie in the City.” The skyline should definitely be my backdrop more often. But sneaking onto rooftops or climbing up 8 flights of fire escape (in heels) isn’t always worth the great views waiting at the top. But I thought I’d do it for y’all for this look.
My entire look is from Charlotte Russe Plus, but what I love most about it are these wide-calf, faux suede, knee-high boots! If you have been keeping up with my last two posts (See: Combat Boots & Ankle Boots, I have expressed my devotion to finding the perfect wide-calf boots and wide-fit boots for fall and winter. Be sure to read on to the “SIZING INFO” part of this post to learn about the fit of these boots. I love getting jeggings from Charlotte Russe like these Refuge Hi-Rise Skinny Jeans because they are so comfortable. They practically feel like leggings, but still have that cool denim look with destruction, which is my all time fave. I wanted to keep this outfit on the edgy side so I scooped up this Corset-Detail Crew Neck and Studded Faux Leather moto Jacket. I have been dying to try the corset trend—without wearing an actual corset, because those are super bad for you—and this shirt with detachable cotton corset was perfect. This studded moto jacket was the perfect thing to finish off the look—and I was warm!
If you keep up with me on Instagram, I shared some pretty cool things that have been happening this week! I was featured in Refinery 29 in two pieces about dating while plus size! Check those out below:
I also wrote an article about 6 Truths I’m Facing as a Newly Single Plus Size Woman, and How I’m Changing the Narrative! You can check that out on Skorch Magazine!
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 8 in the knee-high boots, which is a half size down from my usual size. The reason I sized down was because I have worn the size 9 boots from Charlotte Russe before and I felt that they were too big. When I sized down to a size 8, the calf is a little tighter, but I could get them up to my knees. I am wearing a size 16 in the skinny jeans, which is my usual size, and they fit perfectly. I am wearing a size 2x in both the corset detail crew neck and the moto jacket, which is my usual size, and they both fit perfectly!
