The pumpkin patch at Tougas Farms last weekend was a bustling backdrop for photoshoots galore… babies, engagements, family portraits, you name it! I can’t blame anyone as the colors there were gorgeous and vibrant, reminding me of why this is my favorite season in Boston. We had a mini shoot of our own, taking advantage of this adorable pumpkin tree bench that someone artfully arranged!
After Nick and I shoveled some warm apple crisp (with vanilla ice cream, of course) into our faces, a sweet lady came up and said she had to know where this sweater was from, because it’s so darn frustrating finding ponchos for a shorter frame! I feel her pain, as the nature of these pieces is already roomy and oversized, so finding ones with the right length and amount of volume is key.
This poncho sweater from Maison Jules fits nicely on my frame in XS regular. I paired it here with some old favorite pieces from years past! Ponchos in general are meant to be a little oversized for coziness – this sweater hits at my hips, and the sleeves are shorter plus can also be pushed up if you want to have a wider range of arm movement (and bonus: to show off a patterned tee underneath). The turtleneck is a long tube so I’ve folded it down twice here.
Most poncho sweaters actually come in grouped sizing like “S/M” or even “one size fits all” due to the unstructured style, so it might not hurt to try a size up if yours is sold out. Compared to ones I’ve tried from other brands, this felt true to size and well-proportioned for someone petite!
