One Year Later | H&M Trend With Jelena

It's been almost two years since we first met, so our first shooting is a great celebration of our friendship and work! I never met a person like her. Common misconception in this world is that you can't really have a true friend, because everyone is your competition. I guess they were wrong. I found one! We clicked since day one. She was nothing but supportive the whole time. There wasn't a moment where you could feel bad vibes or envy. She actually taught me to be more optimistic.

We grew so much together! We pushed each other to do more, to be better version of ourselves and we made it and we are going to be even better. Just take a look at our pictures from one year ago. Take a look at our blogs, our style, it evolved a lot and it'll keep on evolving. It's really nice when you have someone by your side, especially in this cruel industry. I'm so grateful I found a true friend, with whom I can talk about everything and anything. With whom I can be without internet, just sitting and chilling on the floor without wifi and to know I got her by my side. That's true friendship!

It was awesome when we got a chance to represent pieces from new H&M Trend Collection. The moment when we decided to shoot together was even better. It was amazing! At the first glance, we thought we wouldn't make it because our outfits were very different, but we managed it. I love how our outfits are highly contrasted, as well as our personalities and styles. Mine is more on the girly and feminine side, and Jelena’s is on cool and urban one. The most interesting part is that both styles go perfectly together!
So, what is your favorite piece from H&M Trend collection?
Jelena: Ana:
Top - H&M Trend; Dress - H&M Trend;
Pants - H&M Trend; Shoes - Pink Basis;
Shoes - River Island; Rings, Necklace - PD Paola;
Watch - Cassio; Watch - Mockberg;
Ring - Ti Sento; Earrings - H&M;
Bag - Vintage Gucci; Bag - Mango;
Sunglasses - Ray Ban; Sunglasses - Asos;

  1. Since you asked, I like the pink outfit a lot, including the (faux, hopefully) snakeskin shoes that give it a little wild touch. Beautiful photos, and beautiful ladies.

  3. What a wonderful true friendship. And I really love the outfit though..both the pink dress and the black and white combination are really a killer. I am more a black and white person. That's my style..can't believe its from H&M, I am going to check that out in our outlet here.

  13. It's a horrible misconception that we would be each other's competitors, but the story about you two strengthen my belief in the fact that we are here to support each other and push each other to grow, both on social media, but as persons as well. I'm so glad you've found that friendship! As for the H&M collaboration, it's a beautiful combination of two completely different styles and the old saying "opposites attract" really makes sense here!

  15. You girls are absolutely gorgeous! Clad to hear that you've make amazing friends. It's always good to have someone on your side and you can help each other to compete with others. There is millions of us competing - so supporting couple people around you won't hurt anyone. I wish everyone in blogosphere would think the same way! :)

  21. I need her the pants and the dress ASAP!! Society paints women as competitors. However, not all women fall victim to society's standards. I'm so glad you ladies didn't! Seems like you two are a good friendship example!

I think it is amazing when friendships are formed and there is no competitiveness and just full support. Both of these looks are beautiful, one is girly and feminine and the other classy and chic. Great styling! xoxo, Christine

  35. It is so wonderful to have a fellow blogging friend like this. I am so grateful for the friends I have like this, turing to them to vent frustrations about instagram, or ask questions about how they feel about a brand proposal or heck even which top to pick out, helps so much. You both look lovely in this shoot, both outfits are super cute on you both! I can not pick a favourite, you both seem different.

  48. What a beautiful and sweet post! I'm a firm believe that as long as you are the best version of yourself there's no such thing as competition and that leaves so much more room in our heads and hearts to create meaningful relationships like you two have! As for your outfits, let me say that I adore that you shot together! I'm you on one day and her on a different day. It's really refreshing to see a post like this where I could get two different styles that I connect with in one post! Just lovely!

  51. This is so inspiring, I love reading stories like this. Girls should support each other not compete each other. I love both outfits and that pink lace dress looks gorgeous on you. I been looking for a similar dress but was looking for a white version. Maybe this green version would work for me I don't think I could pull off the pink as you do.
    Beautiful both of you !

  59. I love H&M -so lucky you got to work with them! That pink dress is gorgeous and I love both of your looks! And that's so nice you have a close blogger friend - I think it's so important to have friends in the industry to help you grow. So often friendships get tested when one is growing faster and jealousy sets in. I think it's so important for us to support each other - we can all benefit on so many levels :)

  60. That's so cool that you guys found support and a beautiful friendship from each other. Did you meet through blogging or you started blogging after you had become friends? I think this editorial shoot totally works even though both of your outfits are different and in high contrast of each other. That's actually what I love about the 2 styles. Moreover you both styled your outfits flawlessly!

  61. You both are looking so stunning, I love both of your outfits. I totally agree with forming friendships with other bloggers, rather than being competitive. And collaborative photoshoots are the most fun. I think we all have our individual style, but when we collaborate together, we are always inspired by one another. I love that both of your outfits are so different, but they look so perfect together in the pictures. I really love your pink lace dress and handbag, such a chic look thats styled so perfectly :).

  66. I love your pink dress! I can't believe thats from H&M. is it available now in Canada? I'd love to purchase it. Also I loved that you did this shoot with a friend. I know what you mean about finding a true friendship without jealousy, envy or comparing each other. It's hard to find a great friend from the same of your industry mostly for blogging.

    take care!
