A Life Without Limits | Karen Millen

Karen Millen Silver Jewellery Collection 2018
How many times have you stopped yourself from doing something at the last minute because it 'just wasn't you'?  Or laughed at the way in which someone has described you because you just can't see yourself that way?  Funnily enough, it really did take something as simple as a beautiful set of silver jewellery from Karen Millen for me to start asking these questions.  You see, for years I've been a strictly gold-jewellery kind of girl, rarely straying into the realm of silver jewellery.  And then I wear silver jewellery.  And I like it.  In fact, I love it. Which makes me wonder: just how many things are we missing out on in life by staying firmly in one lane?

One day it's wearing silver jewellery, the next it's learning how to be more assertive, the day after it's deciding to relocate early next year!  I've said it before and I'll say it again; sometimes the smallest thing can be a catalyst for change.  Think back over some of the biggest life events you've seen through and you'll be surprised just how many of them stemmed from the smallest of concepts.  Every forest we see has grown from just one teeny-tiny seed, after all.

Admittedly, a shiny set of new jewellery is the least threatening and prettiest way of stepping outside of your comfort zone.  But the first step of a new journey doesn't always have to be the hardest, right?  Surprise yourself.  See yourself in a new light and attempt a couple of the things you've always been tempted to try, no matter how small.  You'll be amazed at what other ideas they may just spark...

With love,

Gabrielle x

  7. Stepping out of your comfort zone is so rewarding, I agree. And even if changing up your jewelry isn't threatening, it can lead to a shift in mindset that inspires other, more profound changes indeed.

  10. I love the point you make about the link between small things (like what colour jewellery we wear) and bigger life decisions. Sometimes it's important to change things up, even if they seem insignificant, if only to show ourselves that we can! Gorgeous photos as always and you look great in silver jewellery! x

  14. so stunning and beautiful love your outfit!

  15. you are beyond stunning! I find myself pushing myself out of comfort zones with accessories and outfits as well - it all depends on what mood i'm in!

    xo, allie

  16. I loved reading this post! The photos are incredible! Thanks for sharing!

  17. You are so right! And of course, your jewellery is beautiful and so are your stunning photos. :)

  18. Wow, that jewellery is truly pretty! I've never paid much attention to Karen Millen before for jewellery. I struggle pushing myself outside of my comfort and boundaries though, but I've done it numerous times and keep growing.

  19. So beautiful outfit and jewellery!!!
    The photos look so perfect and you are so gorgeous!!

  20. These pieces are so pretty! I love the simplicity but they're still unique. Honestly, 99% of the time I step out of my comfort zone I'm SO happy I did. Ben always says that comfort zones are danger zones and I couldn't agree more. Because really, what have we got to lose?!

  21. That necklace is pure art, looks so beautiful :D
    Always step out of your comfort zone so you can understand your own being and become the true version of yourself!

    With love and sunshine,

  22. Love the place and your outfit, so beautiful :)

  23. Adore these pieces!! I’m normally strictly a gold jewellery girl too, but might have to splash out...

  24. What a gorgeous jewelry set! The pieces look so classic and modern at the same time and you wear them beautifully Gabrielle! I was the opposite of you and wore only silver jewelry for the longest time before trying out gold and now I love to mix the two. Stepping out of one's comfort zone can be a wonderful thing in some cases ;p

  25. I'm so in love with gold jewelries that I didn't even managed to look into the silvers too. This post is an eye opener and maybe a sign that I should also check out the silvers. I love your necklace. I would visit the store where you got that from :)


  26. I love these jewelry pieces so much my dear..

  27. These are gorgeous jewelry pieces dear. Love the simplicity and elegance of the designs. Looks so classy, so perfect on you dear!

  30. This post is so good in its simplicity cause it really shows how easy it is to miss out just because you've been sure about what you know! Also, gorgeous photos. That denim skirt is so stylish!! Hope you're having a lovely week Gabrielle! Xx

  31. So cute outfit dear!! As always loving your looks!!
    Have a great day! xx

  34. I'm trying to step out of my comfort zone a little in order to discover things I might be missing out on too! I am a sucker for gold jewellery, but have and wear both - I've actually grown quite fond of wearing them together! I absolutely adore how your outfit matches your location here!

  35. You are so right Gabrielle! Step by step, and sometimes the smallest things can make you reflect and decide to make changes in your life. This is an amazing post - and the jewellery is beautiful indeed, especially the necklace!

  36. I always play on the safe side, however, it stepping out of the comfort zone is something I should do more often! Life is too short to always be in the comfort zone. Also, those are such beautiful jewellery! They are definitely least threatening way of stepping out of the comfort zone! x
