Cool & Comfy Cardigans!

Last week I had the opportunity to attend an event hosted by Martin & Osa at a boutique hotel in Soho. I must admit, I had never heard of this brand prior to receiving the invitation, but after attending the party, I am now in LOVE with their line of cashmere cardigans! They’re lightweight, super soft and affordable.

Lightweight cardigans are perfect for pairing with spring/summer outfits. If it’s not quite chilly enough for a jacket, but you still want to have something to keep you a bit warm, wearing a cardigan is the ideal choice. Having a light sweater really comes in handy when you're dining out, in the office or at the movies where the AC is on full-blast.

Plus, they can fit into a bag or tote for easy-access!

Check out some of these:

Martin & Osa Cashmere Silk Cardigan available at www.martinandosa.com for $128


Featherweight V-Neck Cardigan available at www.jcrew.com for $59.50


Cashmere Martin Cardigan available at www.jcrew.com for $188


Cotton Swing Cardigan available at www.ninewest.com for $89


Cotton-Blend V-Neck Cardigan available at www.bananarepublic.com for $34.99

Due to my ever growing tummy, I'm not a sweater person. They look great but cling and accentuate the wrong stuff BUT I might try that adorable swing one or the black one from the GAP. Thanks for giving me options!

Love cardigans, they hide the fat and I know I'm always cold year round so they are perfect for my hot/cold personality. Not to mention classicly chic.

We must be on the same wavelength, BGG, because I ordered the featherweight v-neck on from J.Crew a few days ago. Waiting for it to arrive.

CArdigans are my summer life line. My office is always so cold and they keep me stylish and warm

I agree cardigans are great especially when traveling.
Jcrew Martin cardigan what a great color but Ouch! $188.
In that case I'll go for Featherweight V-Neck.

LOL@ Divine - "cardigans are for old women!" I must admit that they do remind me of Mr. Rogers, but I still like them!!

@Torrance - Thanks so much for such a wonderful compliment. I wish you could tell them to hire me! :-)

Cute. I think I might have to get me a few of these. The fact that they are affordable makes me want one even more.
