Pumpkin Patch // Olive Jeans + Petite-friendly Poncho

cute fall outfit ideas poncho sweater olive jeans

Maison Jules poncho sweater (similar here), Gucci soho disco bag, Vince Camuto boots (current version), 7FAM jeans (similar here or here in petite for under $100), Talbots striped tee (similar)

**Update** Check out my newer blog post reviewing four different adorable poncho sweaters that are each under $100!

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.

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!

    Hey Jean!! I had a quick question for you, have you ever tried the Gucci girl's soho messenger bag (sort of a mini version of the Disco)? I'm considering it, but not sure if it's too small 🙂 thank you!

  2. I love this outfit. I have a few ponchos but have still yet to wear them because I can never figure out a cute, weather-appropriate outfit. I'm definitely pinning this for later!

    Does the poncho sweater run big? My size S is sold out so going up a size wouldn't hurt?

    Thanks for the tip! I've been searching for a petite friendly poncho. I went to Macy's today and snagged the only xsmall left in the tan. And all Maison Jules was an extra 40% off! 🙂

    Adore the look! I'm looking forward to the fall transition so much too! And I'm thinking about how my working closet could use a bit touch up of fall 🤔 As I've been wearing the pencil skirts you recommended over the summer, I need some new finds for the coming days. Would you do a blog on that too? Maybe pair with Loft or Ann Taylor?

  30. Jean thanks a million for all your wonderful and detailed posts. You give me so much fashion inspiration. I'm not sure what I'd do without your recos. Please never stop what you're doing as you have help so many of us!

  31. Almost every piece you mentioned has been sitting in my online shopping cart (I'm always waiting on great sales); so many pretty picks, as usual! This color poncho sold out in XS, unfortunately, but I managed to snag a similar Maison Jules one on eBay for $30!
