Back to my favourite subject of all fasjun-times: comfy weekend attire! By now you know I'm not that super glamourous girl that elegantly spins around on 10cm heels in a Hervé Léger bodycon dress while carrying groceries, school books and a pet or two. Nope, I'm the one that shuffles around on worn out chucks wearing destroyed denim, continuously drops/loses/leaves all of my stuff and gets a weird foot cramp somewhere in between. The fact that I usually transport myself by bike or public transport of course explains my love for easy clothing. These three girls demonstrate that it's perfectly possible to look fabulous and feel comfortable at the same time! To be honest I wouldn't mind stealing Maja's Nikes, Sofie's parka and Alex's hooded sweater for a cozy Saturday afternoon. Who's with me? Check out more weekend inspiration on my Pinterest board right here! Have a great day!
Tis the season to be layering! My dark grey knit, a camel touch (happy you loved it too yesterday!), black leather accessories, some cashmere and my half bun are everything I seem to need lately to compile a well-balanced outfit. Besides wanting to stick to my favourites there's another reason for recycling this outfit idea (same same but different?). My days are spent at the library nowadays since exams are coming closer, unexpected paper deadlines are emerging and well, I need to get some credibility being a literature student! Obviously I want to be comfy but study in style at the same time. At home I usually don't wash my hair for
days weeks and wear ugly fleece jogging suits all day, but when studying at the library I need to compete with those always impeccable looking law girls. #studentproblems, you know. Luckily my current style happens to be extremely convenient in the morning! As I said: my dark grey knit, a camel touch, black leather accessories, some cashmere and my half bun are everything I seem to need lately. Happy Thursday!

It's here! Yesterday I told you about the editorial I set up for my 5th blog birthday on the 30th of November. Part one has arrived already and it's all about minimalism, geometric lines and hard contrasts. This play with shadow and light turned out great with the minimalist styling and my messy hairdo (just how I like it, Sabine!). While in this editorial we mainly focused on atmosphere, part two will be all about fierce beauty. I noticed that you guys love a peek into my life as a model, so I hope that this addition to my blog can please you! Oh, and since Sabine and I are huge Muse fans, we obviously had to name this editorial after one of their famous songs. I'm looking forward to read your thoughts on this fun shoot!

Long term readers may remember that November is a special month to me: on the 30th it's my blog birthday! This year my blog is turning 5, which actually quite surprised me. On one hand it feels like I've been doing this since for-ever (which is probably true, me being a screenager writing away on the world wide web) but on the other hand I've only recently started seeing Polienne as more than just a fun hobby. Especially 2014 has been a real special year for the blog, involving lovely business trips, exciting brand collaborations and extremely cool projects still to launch. My focus has been shifting from merely sharing fun stuff to really creating interesting content for you guys and my visitor numbers have been growing ever since, which is extremely rewarding!
Now, in order to celebrate this 5 year anniversary I wanted to do something fun and inventive that would bring together different aspects of my life. I didn't really see myself jumping around in front of the Eiffel tower at sunset holding 5 huge silver balloons, so instead I worked together with a creative team to create a cool editorial! Photographers Jan & Jorre, make-up artist Sabine Peeters, stylist Stéphanie Bosten and I collected all of our individual inspiration and bundled it in a real cool moodboard. Surprisingly, we had so many great pics that we could even divide our shoot into two different editorials! Today it's time for a backstage sneak peek, but tomorrow the real deal will be online. Make sure to come back and check out our editorial from 7AM! Hope you're having a lovely Sunday in the meantime! x
