Outlet shopping for Spring musthaves

What’s better than designer shopping? Affordable designer shopping! After purchasing a cute Mulberry Lily bag at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Roermond more than two years ago, I finally returned to the walhalla of marked down designer items last week! With top brands like Prada, Coach, Levi’s, Gucci, Nike and Burberry you can find some real steals here, especially during…

Pink & deep brown: a winning combo!

It’s been already a month since I returned from Berlin but I still have to show you the last outfit that I wore! On this sunny day I mixed my pastel pink Topshop sweat with this trusty deep brown faux fur coat. A combination that seems weird at first, but that works like a charm for me! I’m going…

That 70s show

The seventies were never really my era: I honestly don’t like flare pants and the pale shade of those flower power prints looks horrible on me. BUT when I spotted this little striped number with high collar and slightly longer sleeves, I knew I had to have it. And then, as if I was contaminated with the 70s…

Add some drama

My home town Antwerp offers many gorgeous architectural gems, and not just the famous ones like the cathedral, the MAS museum or the city hall! By just wandering around you’ll discover plenty more unknown buildings that are equally (or even more) stunning as the obligated architectural must-sees. Examples are the richly decorated late 19th century…

Her eclectic outfits, brightening smile and outstanding photography skills never cease to impress me, and I bet you’ll be inspired too! You’ve probably heard about her blog before, but I’m a huge fan of the gorgeous Sara Escudero from the…

A classic Spring uniform

Blooming cherry blossoms, my old light trenchcoat and the first pieces of fresh watermelon: three key words that define how I celebrated that incredibly warm Sunday last weekend! In the afternoon temperatures rose over 22° here in Antwerp, so even though that spring coat came out to play unexpectedly early, I took it off even quicker! Yep, biking…

Berlin in 33 photos
Travel

Soooo, Berlin. I’ve told you that my two besties and I booked a little mid-week trip to the German capital a little while ago to attend a concert and to discover the city. We were lucky to experience a royal 12° and sun (usually Berlin equals rain and goosebumps) so you can imagine we spent…

Pretending to be a Berliner

Because I’m smart like that, I obviously wore my all black & wool outfit on the sunniest day of our Berlin trip! The girls and I spent our last day around the area of Boxhagener Straße, which has loads of vintage shops, concept stores and adorable cafés. The perfect place to pretend to be a local, right? (This “Berliner”…

Welcome to the revamped Polienne!
Personal

And tadaa! I proudly present you POLIENNE 2.0 — or yeah, after all these years and changes this would probably be version 7.0 or so. When I heard that blog platform Creators Of Desire, which hosted my blog for the past year, would be shutting down later on this month, I felt a slight excitement by the idea of…

Faux fur in Berlin

As you know, my besties and I went on a little trip to Berlin two weeks ago! I had been there plenty of times for work but this was the first time that I could finally actually visit the city. The main purposes of our trips were a) a pretty awesome Hurts concert and b) chilling to…

From gym to office and back with Zalando

Over the years my style has slowly but surely been evolving from girly to a more sporty vibe. The ones amongst you that have been reading my blog from the beginning must remember the days in which I would only leave the house wearing a frilly skirt and high heels, right? Those days are definitely over now:…

A letter about new beginnings soon!
Personal

Dear friends, readers and random visitors, As Anouk announced a little while ago, she is ending the wonderful chapter called Creators Of Desire later on this month. Truth is that the blog industry is changing rapidly, with quick visual content often being more important than more elaborate, well-written blogposts. Instead of spending all her energy on trying to be…

Sequin Sunday

So far so good for my 2016 resolution of bringing more glitter in my life. Not only have I booked plenty of fun concerts and trips for the Summer to come, I have also been rocking this sequin sweater pretty frequently! How else brighten up a rainy Sunday afternoon in March? Pretend it to be Spring…
