Polienne around the clock 4: Sunday funday!
Personal

There we go, another photo diary! This time no special trip or getaway, but just a lovely Sunday well spent. Read along! 10h16 I am SO not a morning person, so setting my alarm clock at 10 in the morning on a Sunday is not something I would easily do. But I had fun plans…

Translating my boho look to the streets

Every now and then I like a little boho vibe – my apartment is full of horns and skulls, I love wearing kimonos and I’m dreaming of a camper holiday in an old van. But I always find it difficult to actually translate this boho vibe in my own rather casual tomboy style without looking like…

The dude magnet

If you’re looking for a quick outfit fixer that gets you about 12 compliments a day, especially from dude friends, click home these striped trackpants immediately. I’m not kidding, I even wore these trousers 3 days in a row because literally ALL of my friends and colleagues told me how cool they looked! My favourite combo?…

Bring it on, Kendall

This dress has been hanging in my closet for about three years now, and I’ve only worn it as a safety slip dress underneath my see-through H&M x Isabel Marant dress. But with Pokémon and black chokers bringing the 90s back these days, I figured I should give the Kendall Jenner-look a try! The tallest member…

Perfect blouse & creepy sofa

Here’s a fun anekdote from my new apartment. My roomie does in events and for her next party (Mechelsepleinfeesten! Be there or be square!) she had to gather plenty of vintage couches. These sofas of course had to be stored somewhere, and promptly our new (empty) living room was being turned into the perfect storage unit! So while cleaning out…

Sundays are for the most comfortable outfits possible right? And because I couldn’t leave the house in PJ’s after sleeping until noon, I was forced to wear the second most comfy piece of clothing in my closet: this Closed denim jumpsuit. Most jumpsuits are just too short for me (awkward things going on around the crotch-area) but this…

Celebrating the late 90s with Minnie and weird denim

When I was 16, I finally gave in to skinny jeans, and even embraced boyfriend jeans, flared trousers and the high waisted cigarette pants in the following years. Now it is time to go back to those early teens, in which I wore only straight and slightly wider denim! These awkward-fitting jeans are totally back, with a vintage…

Dressing city-proof for 25°

This outfit is actually pretty weather-appropriate for Seville right now! You’ve seen this look popping by in my Polienne Around The Clock post last week, and I thought you might like a full outfit post. When I got this Soaked In Luxury shirt dress in the mail earlier, I was a bit scared of its…

Personal

Another episode of Polienne around the clock that takes you to Amsterdam! This time only for a super quick breakfast meeting, which I will tell you all about later in my report. First of all I need to excuse myself for these two selfie shots that feature exactly the same Wiske face. I think I’m rather…

Sunny city stroll

Last week you could read in my & Other Stories dress wishlist that the off-shoulder trend is still going strong in my wardrobe, and here’s the living proof. This H&M Trend top is one of my favourite SS15 investments that I’ll happily feature again this season! I love the weird, bulky fit and the airy cotton fabric…

CKS x Polienne, the high Summer part

Back in February, I showed you my first CKS looks from our Selected By Polienne collaboration! In these few months my campaign photos have been exposed in all CKS store windows, which was super weird but also thrilling to see! I’ve explained you about their no-nonse approach with a casual and fun touch, and my current…

Denim days

Remember when we had a few LOVELY sunny Spring days last week? Whenever the sun comes peeping out on those first warm days of the season, I always resort to some good old denim because I don’t know about you guys, but I’m NOT ready to show lots of pale bare skin yet! Anyway, it was time…

Festival season is upon us!

Coachella traditionally means the kick off of my favourite season of all: festival season! The festival is also known as Palm Springs Fashion Week, as famous bloggers and A-list celebrities showcase their flower crowns, vintage Levi’s shorts and ethnic printed crop tops next to a pool filled with inflatable donuts. But personally I’m most impressed…

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…

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…

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:…

Print clashing 2.0

Last month I showcased several ways of wearing my beloved ZARA trousers with leopard print, with which I tried to convert you guys to the “leopard is a basic” principle. And basics can be combined with prints, right? I channeled my inner Lizzy VD Ligt  and threw in an eclectic vibe in which I felt surprisingly comfortable. In…

Why brunch meetings are always the best

Do I really have to explain? Hello there, perfect pink wall, fresh flowers and pastel cushions. Oh hi, delicious food that I can stuff my face with without wasting any energy on the cooking process. And of course, thank god for never having to do the dishes myself. Last week was all about meetings, and more…

CKS x Polienne: the first images!

You know that feeling when you meet someone that you’ve noticed around but had never really talked to before, and suddenly you get along really great? That sometimes happens between bloggers and brands too! When Belgian label CKS invited me to come over and discover the brand at their impressive headquarters, we immediately clicked. Not only do I love their…

An early Spring

And here we go, the first “action” shots of my new coupe! Are you loving the bangs too? Here’s what I wore earlier this week, when temperatures rose up to almost 15 degrees. I figured that I could go lightly dressed in this gorgeous Filippa K shirt and rolled up denim (with of course a jacket too), but…

The perfect neutrals

You can never go wrong with the holy trio, black, white and grey. That’s exactly what I was thinking when pulling together this office-proof look. And speaking of office-proof: I’ve noticed that I’m wearing more sophisticated and polished things lately, even on the days that I don’t have to be at the office. It seems like…
