Martin & Osa - New Arrivals

This email from Martin & Osa popped in my inbox this morning:

I'm not sure if I am really special or if everyone on the planet received this email but I headed over to M&O's site to check it out anyways. There were, of course, lots of basics, but a few things stuck out for me.

Shawl Collar Fleece Cardigan

"Fitted like a blazer + fashioned like a cardigan, this versatile shawl collar knit is a modern update in a plush blend of super-soft fleece." This looks super cozy but still appropriate for my school with its wildly inaccurate heating system. I always need a stack of sweaters in my desk.

Autumn Print Belted Cowlneck Dress

I love Martin and Osa dresses. This one is so pretty. I don't know if I would get any wear out of it in my climate where the fall turns cold fairly quick.

Cap Sleeve Scoop-Neck Ponte Dress

This dress would be a better option for Canada's climate. I could add in some tights and a sweater and be all set.

There were lots of other great things like this that I will keep my eye on. Of course, I will be waiting for all of the above items to go on sale before purchasing. I love extra 30% off sales.


  1. I really love that shawl collar cardigan, that would be a great piece to have for fall!

    I hope you have a glorious weekend!


  2. Thanks Ms. B! Ut looks like it will be a warm one here. We are going tubing (you float down a river in a tube and drink). It should be fun.
    I hope your weekend is great too!

  3. Oooh, I love that cap sleeve dress! So pretty! I will bookmark that and hope for a sale!

  4. Thanks so much for this post! The autumn printed cowl neck dress would be terrific during a Canadian fall with a pair of opaque tights, boots and a great sweater. Wear now, wear later!

  5. The Autumn Print Cowl Neck Dress... I would wear with a long cardigan of a similar and complimentary color, with a skinny belt worn on the outside of the cardigan at-waist, with some black opaque tights. It would be on the hip side, but I just love the look of black tights and silky looking dresses with cardis for fall! It looks like it would be comfy and sooo pretty.

  6. "wildly inaccurate heating system" - hehehehe, love that.

    Great finds!!

  7. oooohhh....pretty dresses! I just found your blog and I think it's fantastic--I'll check it out more frequently!

  8. Thank you luvallthingsjcrew! I've been digging your blog too.

    Heidi, it's crazy how bad my school is. We're either freezing, sweating, dealing with leaks that cause rivers in classrooms or finding mice. It's lovely!
