Today I've been wearing an Etoile knit, J Brand jeans and IM booties. The sweater has a back neck opening, but I've worn a tank top as well, it's still pretty chilly.

Per request :), here's number 11 On my style list, knits. I'm so looking forward to wearing cotton knits instead of wool knits. Because of the long winters here, wool knits are essential in my wardrobe. I used to love cardigans, but after two pregnancies in four years with the daily uniform: skinny maternity jeans- maternity top and cardigan, I feel ambivalent about them. I still think that they're great for dressing down an outfit, especially dresses. I've used crew neck sweaters more this winter. I used to only wear cashmere, because my skin is so senitive, but this winter I've used two mohair sweaters with a top underneath, and they haven't itched a bit. I don't find cashmere hard to care for, I wash them like I do with almost all my tops, in mesh laundry bags, with wool/silk detergent in the gentle cycle. I usually go for basic colours like black, grey and navy when it comes to knits, but there are a few exceptions. The first picture is a glimpse of some of my fall/winter knits, and the second is of the spring/summer knits. There's Hope, Etoile, Acne, Zero Maria Cornejo, Loft design by, Comme des Garcons Play and A.P.C. I don't wear a lot of Acne clothing, which in Sweden is quite unusual, they are the design gods here. I just don't find the design that intriguing, but when it comes to knits they make some great cashmere, cotton and silk basics.
