Hi guys! Are you getting used to the new Polienne look? I’m finally settling down here on the new site (so happy to be at #teamcreators!) after a few hectic days in which I still needed to fix a couple of technical problems. I hope that everyone can reach the site very easily by now!

Today I wanted to show you this incredible piece that I picked up at Weekday! It seems like lately my entire closet exists of light blue items, so this gorgeous kaftan is no exception. My intentions were actually to show you a very chic and sophisticated summer look, but then after shooting I realized that I had forgotten to switch my Birks for a more elegant slip on sandal. I immediately asked my friend to shoot the outfit again but she refused, reminding me of those typical #bloggerproblems and telling me that I should post whatever I am actually wearing. Oops. She was right of course!

As an online influencer people expect you to always look fabulous, and that’s simply not possible. Most bloggers organize shooting days in which they capture 4 or 5 looks at once, which means that every outfit is of course well-prepared and well thought-out to have a bigger impact and provide a maximum amount of inspiration! I personally just shoot whenever someone is available, resulting in a lot of pretty casual and real-life looks (which is good) but also in time and scheduling struggles and very unwanted weather conditions (which is bad). With my life and career going through some big changes at the moment — I’ll give you  an update on that soon — I might have to start planning my looks and my shooting days as well…

The point of this random rant is that it’s of course okay to prepare the outfits you want to show to your readers but also that it’s VERY okay to sometimes just share daily moments, even if that suggests revealing that you wear your Birks with about everything. Let’s avoid #bloggerproblems and just be ourselves.

    I LOVE LOVE that dress! And I’m totally with you on this one! Dit jaar ben ik ook een blog gestart, ik studeer nog steeds dus je leven is een grote chaos. Ik heb nooit een idee waneer ik vrij ben om te shooten dus doe ik het echt even tussendoor, zeg maar rap rap. But that’s Okay. Ik vind dat dat iets spontaans geeft. EN Je nieuwe blog is echt om jaloers op te zijn! U go girl! xoxo

    • Hi Jana! Yep, ik hou ook echt van spontane outfitshoots, alleen zit dan het weer vaak tegen! Misschien moet ik wanneer ik tijdsgebrek heb mijn spontane outfits gewoon goed onthouden en ze dan allemaal tegelijk shooten 🙂 En dankjewel!

    totally agree – I love those “daily” looks so much! I think to much planning is bad for your imagination and ideas!
    bisou, Mirjam

  • so pretty! En het gaat perfect met de birks, so who cares?

  • Kim

    Ik hou meer van casual, real life outfits dan van die tot in de perfectie gestylde outfits zonder persoonlijkheid.

  • Veel leuker om échte outfits te zien, ge zijt goed bezig! En supertoffe kaftan!

  • Je hebt helemaal gelijk! En de birkenstocks staan geweldig bij die prachtige kleur 😉
